Dealmaking Software For Private Equity Firms and LPs

GPs and LPs need to collect information about investment prospects, manage due diligence processes, conduct risk assessments and more to review and close deals. Utilizing the right software platforms will help dealmakers streamline their workflows, improve efficiency and reduce time.

Many private equity firms rely on various single-use tools to manage their deals, such as spreadsheets, word processors note-taking, to-do and note-taking apps and Blackbook systems. While juggling these multiple tools may be convenient at time, they can waste valuable time and often cause data confusion. Dealmakers also face risk when they utilize siloed information sources from third-party vendors, as there is no guarantee that information has been verified and vetted by the same vendor. Small vendors can also disappear without notice, requiring dealmakers to rethink their decision-making strategy.

Whether it’s an urgent email from a prospective client or an unexpected request for more details from a client the dealmaker needs an easy-to-use system that can store and access their data in one place. A full CRM with API integration with the most popular collaboration tools and a robust database that is able to manage and store more specific tools — will allow dealmakers to reduce time, prevent data loss and ensure all their communications are backed up.

The appropriate M&A software can also support the complexity of deal structuring and post-merger integration. Automated escrow services, for example, can simplify the M&A by storing and creating specific documents for transactions in a central place. A extensive M&A platform, on the other hand can enhance due diligence by surfacing difficult-to-find information about a company, and offer insights into its potential for growth and transaction-readiness.
