How do I give my colleagues a heads up that we’re going to be using ProDeal?

-- BEGIN SAMPLE EMAIL--

I am pleased to let you know that we will be using a new collaborative platform called ProDeal for managing and automating transactions.  

As we integrate ProDeal into our workflow, I want to make clear our path for successful adoption:

ProDeal will be a secure, single source of truth and allow us to seamlessly close transactions as well as drastically reduce the number of emails sent on deals.   Therefore, it is imperative that you commit to using ProDeal entirely for this transaction.

As we get started, the ProDeal team will be available to train and support our team whenever we need them.  Please give them your attention and provide feedback where you see fit.

EXAMPLE 1 (Short):

--BEGIN SAMPLE EMAIL--

All, we will be using ProDeal to manage both our underwriting due diligence/ closing checklist on this transaction.

Invites to ProDeal will go out shortly. If you need to add additional colleagues, click the teams page, find your team and click "Invite Users."

Once you have access, please start uploading documents to the deliverable folders instead of emailing them to us.  Counsel will also distribute loan documents directly through ProDeal.

EXAMPLE 2 (Long):

--BEGIN SAMPLE EMAIL--

cc: support@prodeal360.com

All, we will be using ProDeal to manage both our due diligence and legal closing checklist on this transaction.

Invites to ProDeal will go out shortly. If you need to add additional colleagues, click the teams page, find your team and click "Invite Users."

Here is the 3 step workflow we will be using on this deal:

1) All parties will upload and download documents to folders in ProDeal instead of emailing them.

2) All parties will communicate "reply-all" style comments using the line item notes

3) Once documents are final, our office will close each line item (i.e. make the folder green) to indicate completion

Once you have access, please start uploading documents to the deliverable folders instead of emailing them to us. Counsel will also distribute loan documents directly through ProDeal.

Thanks for your email.

We’re excited to leverage this simple and powerful tool to streamline and secure our workflow.

The ProDeal platform will help reduce email traffic, keep track of current versions of documents, and make sure documents are always being shared with all of the appropriate counterparties.

ProDeal will also reduce email traffic and ensure everyone is getting real-time updates.
