We all live in our email inbox, and our surveys and research of AxialMarket users indicates that corporate M&A and private equity professionals are no different from the rest of us. When we receive an email, the easiest way to carry on the conversation is to just click “reply” and send a response.
AxialMarket users often take advantage of our built-in messaging application to send each other messages, to ask about the status of an NDA signature, to inquire about interest in an upcoming Opportunity, or just following up on an inquiry. User messaging enables AxialMarket’s Members to connect with one another regarding a particular Opportunity, and AxialMarket takes care of routing the message to the right email address, and preserving the conversation thread.
Since AxialMarket Buyers and Sellers live in their email inboxes (not to mention on their Blackberries and iPhones), we upgraded our messaging application this week to allow replies directly via email. This functionality makes having email conversations via AxialMarket as easy as email, keeps track of your deal-specific correspondence, and lets you work and communicate the way you always have.
Try it out: just reply to a message from another AxialMarket user in your email application just as you would any other email. Select “reply” in your email client, and type your response at the top of the reply message. You’ll notice that the “To” field has a special email address (it looks like [email protected]) that validates you as an AxialMarket member.
Your reply is processed and then sent to the intended recipient via their registered email address. Your message will also be stored in your Message centre, so you can keep track of and log all your deal communications.
Since we rolled this out, hundreds of Members have started using AxialMarket’s Messaging App. Try it out , send a message, and let us know what additional functionality you’d like us to add by leaving a comment below.
