Menlo Park, CA— (December 3, 2020) — AST Private Company Solutions (PCS), provider of industry-leading ownership software Astrella today, introduced a new strategic partnership with AutoCFO. This Texas-based software company offers specialized financial data analyzing solutions. AutoCFO provides real-time and detailed financial analysis for growing companies. AutoCFO automates the time-consuming, manual work so you can get to insights – and impact – faster.
AutoCFO’s powerful software integrates with your existing accounting software in a matter of minutes, allowing you to visualize your business in beautiful charts, graphs, and simplified reports. Astrella and AutoCFO will mutually integrate each other’s functionalities in the software, which gives the administrators of Astrella the capability to see financial KPI data next to the ownership information, and within AutoCFO, the users can see the cap table information. Instant access to this information is vital for CFOs and administrators to give real-time, up to date information to the stakeholders.
Astrella was developed by AST Private Company Solutions, a Silicon Valley-based unit of American Stock Transfer and Trust. AST invested in Astrella to make it the transformative technology for private company shareholder and employee stock plan management. The new cloud-based software-as-a-service platform brings together private blockchain technology, artificial intelligence (AI), and predictive analytics to provide an alternative to traditional database solutions. The system is built with an API-based ecosystem to integrate seamlessly with leading global service providers to private firms.
“AutoCFO is excited about this partnership. Our goal is to support growing businesses, their managers, and their investors with key, real-time, user-friendly financial data. Providing the company’s ownership information as part of a real-time dashboard for investors is a great addition to our offering. We’re looking forward to revolutionizing business financial transparency together and providing board members with the data they need, at their fingertips, to make important decisions,” said Blair Morrison, CEO and Founder of AutoCFO.
Paul Arens, Head of Business Development and Partnerships at Astrella says, “We realize that managing ownership data is but one part of a complex set of KPI’s fast-growing private company management team and boards require to make day-to-day decisions that impact their business, clients and their employees. Combining financial information with ownership information provides a complete picture as to the financial health of a company and seemed like a natural offering for our clients. We look forward to working closely with Blair and her team.”
