Investor Management
In our specific use case we used IMS to manage the investor acquisition process and manage reporting going forward. Basically, it's a powerful, real-estate focused CRM that understands our pain points and issues. Additionally, it was cost efficient for our organization since we weren't using any of the waterfall technology, nor did we have extensive complicated ownership structures that we needed to import. We were essentially starting from the beginning, with very few implementation needs. In this situation, the software worked perfectly. We have been very happy with the service and technology. That said, if you have an extensive investor relations apparatus and need something that requires a tremendous amount of implementation (i.e. an entire, existing, investor management system) it may be a more difficult process

WealthBlock
Great for VC, PE, and RE firms. I-banks and brokers should use it, as well, to scale. Cost might be too high for startups or sporadic fundraisers who don't need an ongoing tool.

Alternatives Considered
Investor Management
We evaluated IMS against Juniper Square and the Crowdstreet white label platform. IMS came to the top for us because of our specific use case (i.e. less implementation needs, primarily investor acquisition and investor management). Also, at the time, IMS was way more cost effective for the functionality that was offered compared to its immediate competitors
