Easily create accurate, role-based reports with these 3 key DealCloud features

 

DealCloud unifies data analytics for capital markets firms with fully interactive reporting on their most important metrics — then makes it all accessible, anywhere, any time. With dealmakers frequently on the road and in meetings, mobile-accessible data is essential.

Every user’s reporting needs are unique, depending on their role and level of experience, which is why DealCloud was purpose-built to tailor outputs on a user-by-user basis. Role-based reports, dashboards, charts, graphs, and tear sheets can all be customized to meet each user’s needs, at their preferred cadence.

 

What are scheduled reports?

DealCloud’s Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel add-ins let dealmakers create and distribute customized, role-based reports —including the ability to schedule automatic distribution at a set day and time to a defined list of recipients. With this functionality, professionals can select in advance who should receive a specific report and when.

With the ability to schedule reports, no one has to remember or find time to manually share firm updates every week. Analysts and associates no longer need to spend hours the night before a big meeting formatting, populating, and updating reports — and when the reports are sent out, they’ll include your most recent data, ensuring the firm is synced on the latest updates.

Key benefits

  1. Save time and be more prepared by creating templated reports that can be refreshed instantly, without spending hours manually updating data.
  2. Provide a single source of truth with live updates that sync directly to all access points and generated reports.

 

What are dashboards?

Dashboards are pre-filtered, customized views within the DealCloud platform that make it simple and easy to consume data from within the web portal or mobile app. Within a dashboard, relevant information is automatically surfaced based on predetermined filters to show a meaningful data set that requires little maintenance or manual input. For example, for business units focused on multiple sectors, dashboards can display charts, graphs, and data grids to compare activity levels among the various industries they track.

Dashboards have a significant impact on how users absorb data, which is why DealCloud dashboards give your firm’s professionals tailored, holistic views into their pipelines and activities. Firms have the option to fully customize which information gets displayed, how much detail is shared, and what the layout looks like, while users can organize their dashboards into customized categories, and restrict them to certain users based on specific criteria.

  2. Save time with in-dashboard editing — so you can update data straight from your dashboard, without having to go to a different tab to make changes.
  3. Strengthen your firm’s relationships with personal user dashboards that measure the health of relationships within each individual’s network — and offer timely insights into which ones need extra attention.

 

What are push-button tear sheets?

Push-button tear sheets are preformatted report templates, included with the DealCloud platform, that users can create for contacts, companies, and deals via the Microsoft Word add-in. The tear sheets offer detailed, high-priority data surrounding an entity, and once created, they can be generated from the web platform, the mobile app, or within Microsoft Word with the click of a button. The output will be a PDF or .docx file populated with the most up-to-date DealCloud data.
