RD:IR developed its proprietary online investor relations platform, IR InTouch, in 2007, working in conjunction with clients and IR professionals to meet their exacting demands. As the years have passed and with every new development, IR InTouch has become a powerful investor relations tool which PLC’s such as Aberdeen Asset Management, Britvic and Debenhams have come to rely on for managing their IR activity.
IR InTouch combines rigorous shareholder analysis, powerful targeting, in-depth profiling and tailored investor relations contact management. It provides our clients with the data, functionality and reporting to manage investor relations communications with equity, debt, governance and SRI investor audiences.
IR InTouch has a number of separate modules, which enable clients to use the platform in a way that suits their individual requirements. Our shareholder analysis reporting tool can be employed as a stand alone service and users of this feature have access to the following data and reports, to allow them to understand their investors more accurately:
- Shareholder analysis

The platform can be viewed across all major browsers and devices, allowing clients to make full use of it whilst on the road. It also offers an offline data entry mode for tablet devices, ensuring meeting notes and records can be saved if there is no WiFi or cellular access readily available.
“We find the IR InTouch platform an invaluable CRM tool especially with regards to recording all our meetings and notes. The system produces insightful roadshow packs which incorporate all share register and peer analysis information, which are useful for our busy meeting schedules. We have also started using the offline meeting function, allowing the recording of notes in an efficient and user friendly manner even on the move. Additionally, with a focused investor base on the CRM platform, we know we can reach thousands of relevant investors, globally, at a touch of a button.” Lisa Williams, (formally of) Debenhams plc
