Onboard fast, and communicate with your employees the value of their equity. They immediately get access to a team app and see the value of their equity in real time.

"I just found it so easy to just log in, click a couple of buttons, send the email to my employees, they sign it, and then it (stock options) is sorted. It's nice when I onboard someone, log in, send them a link and it's sorted very quickly."
