Sara Anderson, Investor Relations Product Manager, joined PennantPark in 2017 and directly supports PennantPark’s fundraising and investor relations efforts. Faced with a manual and time-consuming workflow, heavily reliant on Excel and numerous stakeholders, Sara and team recognized the need for a solution that streamlined their internal workflows. This prompted Sara and team to search for a technology that would solve their workflow inefficiencies as well as support their reputation for excellence in middle-market lending.


PennantPark’s journey to Altvia’s OnboardingBridge powered by Passthrough originated from the complexities associated with the crucial documents required by the onboarding process. PennantPark’s previous workflow involved the coordination of various stakeholders, each grappling with the intricacies of accurately completing subscription documents. As a result, Sara’s team heavily relied on manual data transcription between their CRM and sub docs, and other inefficient workflows. This not only led to confusion and frustration but also resulted in significant time loss and disruptions in the fundraising process.


Altvia’s OnboardingBridge powered by Passthrough is a solution that streamlines the onboarding process and mitigates the operational challenges faced by private capital firms. With OnboardingBridge, PennantPark experienced a significant reduction in administrative burden, a quicker investor onboarding process with Passthrough, and real-time visibility within Altvia’s AIM CRM, which facilitates quick decision-making. Ultimately, Altvia’s OnboardingBridge powered by Passthrough saves more than 6-8 hours of work a week by speeding up its onboarding workflows, and provides PennantPark with a way to minimize human error due to tedious manual transcription of sub docs.


Streamlined Investor Onboarding: Passthrough’s electronic sub doc platform emerged as the solution to PennantPark’s prolonged onboarding challenges. Sara described Passthrough’s solution as delightful, easy, and seamless. 

Real-Time Visibility: Altvia’s OnboardingBridge offers unparalleled visibility into the investor onboarding status for PennantPark. The team is able to access real-time updates on the status of onboarding — down to the last question an investor answered — which eliminates any internal communication hurdles caused by manual and inefficient spreadsheet maintenance. Additionally, with the ability to import sub doc data back into Altvia’s AIM CRM, OnboardingBridge ensures data accuracy throughout the raise.

Accelerate Timelines: PennantPark is able to minimize fundraising delays and expedite fund closures with 80% of sub docs returned complete and accurate, first time.
