Platform capabilites

Engagement records

Monitor progress and record activities against single or thematic engagement records. Aside from standard information such as topic, objective, and milestones, these can be customized with bespoke fields & data points.

Progress monitoring

The software enables users to align progress frameworks with their strategy, for example by defining specific milestones or objectives. Achievements can be binary (completed or not) or be defined according to different levels.

System integrations

We use APIs and SFTP to import and export data of interest to our clients (e.g. holdings, ESG data, and voting records). This is handled on a client-by-client basis.

Custom fields

Clients can set custom fields across company, engagement and activity level. This enables investors to capture additional data of interest to them, such as highlighting an activity as part of an escalation process.

Voting records

As part of the engagement toolbox, voting records and rationale can be imported and linked to specific engagements for complete data trails and narrative.

Activity records

Activities (e.g. an email, meeting, or vote) can be linked to engagements or stored as stand-alone activities. Records can be created manually, or automatically via Esgaia’s Outlook Plugin and via integrations to investors’ preferred systems.

Statistics & reporting

Recorded data are automatically analyzed and visualized in a statistics dashboard, and available for export. This includes insights on engagement and activity level, covering stats such as:

  • ESG category, topics and SDGs

  • activity types and contacts

  • engagement results and outcomes

Notifications

Users can set deadlines on engagement and objective level, and reminders to follow ups and inactive engagements. These notifications support timely action, and can be received both in the system and via email.

Permission levels

Admin users can predefine different user levels across a range of editable variables. The more people involved in the engagement process, the stronger the need to ensure proper governance and process management.

Collaboration

We support both bilateral and collaborative initiatives to jointly work on engagements via the software. Users can invite external parties to collaborate on specific engagements without them having to become clients.
