Private Equity Software & Solutions

An industry as complex as private equity demands purpose-built technology that’s easily configured to meet your firm’s unique needs. With increased competition in the market, it’s more challenging than ever for private equity firm leaders to grasp how markets shift on a daily basis. These trends have a serious impact on your firm’s ability to achieve long-term success.

DealCloud’s data-powered private equity software is specifically designed for private equity firms, giving PE professionals the power to execute deals at the highest levels. No matter the size of your firm or the specificity of your investment mandate, our software can be easily configured to align with your current business development and portfolio management processes.

DealCloud often gets compared to a CRM, but in reality, the software is equipped to do much more than that. Private equity firms, no matter the size, need the ability to manage relationships, transactions, processes, workflows, and the operations and compliance of the overall firm. Our software allows private equity firms to keep track of every relationship by allowing dealmakers to categorize, tag, organize, and report on their relationship data (companies, contacts, deals, etc.) in any way that they choose. Put simply, the technology adapts to the unique ways each private equity firm works. And because the tagging and reporting capabilities are so flexible, these firms are able to track their progress towards goals such as fundraising, capital deployment, and dealmaker productivity.

No matter if your firm is geographically, deal size, or industry-focused, DealCloud helps PE investors take a handshake and transform it into a closed deal within our private equity software.

Private equity software features & solutions

Whether your firm just closed its first fund or if it has completed hundreds of transactions, our private equity software can help your firm grow and become more efficient. Over the last ten years, we’ve developed countless tools and features on top of our core CRM platform that enables private equity investors to do the administrative and time-intensive parts of their job more quickly and efficiently. The time saved using DealCloud gives professionals more time to build and grow relationships that lead to closed deals.

One great feature of DealCloud’s purpose-built private equity software is our one-click tear sheets. Most firms have the need to create reports consistently (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or at any other cadence). These reports include deal pipeline updates, fundraising status reports, or industry and sub-industry progress reports. Many firms spend countless hours generating these reports in Excel spreadsheets, and waste time sorting and formatting the report every time it needs to be created.

DealCloud also has automated the entire report generation process so that before any meeting or call, dealmakers can leverage and share real-time data with the click of a button. Best of all, the process is simple. Our implementation team will, upon becoming a DealCloud client, will assess all of your day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month reporting needs. Once all of your data is cleansed and organized in the platform, the DealCloud team will not only set up these one-click tear sheets for your firm, but teach your deal professionals how to create new and unique Word document, PDF, and Excel reports.

Solution overview:

CRM

With the increasingly complex nature of relationships in the capital markets, Rolodexes, spreadsheets, and industry-agnostic CRMs are no longer the best tool for the job.

DealCloud differentiators

Unlike other private equity CRMs and software platforms, DealCloud was built by private equity investors, for private equity investors. Our technology centralizes unorganized data and transforms it into meaningful intelligence with easy-to-read, interactive dashboards and automated reports. Users can elect to receive notifications and automated reports with predictive insights via email, web, and mobile. Notifications can be scheduled, such as weekly pipeline reports, or triggered by certain activities within the platform, such as the creation of a new deal or logged note.

Since our platform was built by industry experts, we know that not all private equity firms operate in the same way. The pipeline, relationship management and reporting needs of one user, team, division, or company may differ greatly from the next. That’s why our users have the power and precise control to tailor DealCloud on a user by user basis so that every individual has the tools and the views in front of them necessary to facilitate the flow of information intuitively, simply, and with the right levels of access.

A single-source of truth

The development and rise of vertical-specific CRMs, like DealCloud, has made it easier for private equity firms to keep all their contacts, activities, and other critical information in one place. With these advances, dealmakers are better able to manage relationships and develop coverage models. DealCloud defines a “single source of truth” as the place where all of your firm’s data and information surrounding is accounted for and easily accessed. The benefit of this approach is that there is a clear defined process and workflow for finding answers and making decisions.

When a single source of truth exists within a firm, deal professionals can share who is going to what conferences and industry trade shows, for example. Dealmakers can use DealClod to log their social activities with bankers and business owners. This information is important for others to know, including which contacts are covered and which need to be contacted. By sharing information, you create a company ecosystem and a lifecycle that ensures every deal and relationship is managed in a sophisticated and efficient manner.

Compared to other private equity platforms

Over the past 10 years, hundreds of private equity firms have struggled to configure generic CRM platforms to meet their unique needs. Even some software providers that claim to be designed for private equity investors fail to meet basic expectations. As a result, thousands of investors have turned to DealCloud’s team of consultants to transform the way the firm uses technology. Because our platform comes equipped with tools and features that can’t be found in any other private equity software tool, including private equity compliance and analytics features, DealCloud has emerged as the clear choice amongst firms globally. No other front-office technology provider has achieved a comparable level of market penetration in the capital markets.

We believe that CRM platforms that are built generically will never achieve investors’ desired outcome. The underlying technology, unfortunately, cannot be retrofitted to manage the complex relationships and deal structures of a diverse portfolio. Our platform, proprietarily built on a flexible and multi-relational database model, provides a meaningful alternative to these generic platforms and delivers unrivaled value to our clients. From the beginning, we have understood the complexities of the industry and have designed and innovated our product — as well as our User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) — to serve a vast number of asset classes. Put simply, our technology is without equal in the market because of the unmatched outcomes and greater value we have generated, outpacing that of any competitive private equity CRM platform.
