Corporate Development Software

In today’s competitive market, publicly and privately held companies are tasked with making acquisitions that propel corporate growth in new and exciting ways. No matter if the company’s acquisition targets are identified or unknown, the relationship management and business development processes need to be handled with care by corporate development professionals.

Most companies want to execute on their add-on and roll-up strategies in a thoughtful, methodical way, but they don’t have the resources and tools at their fingertips to get the job done. By creating a single source of truth for all information regarding deals, intermediaries, and other deal sources, DealCloud has enabled corporate development professionals to operate more efficiently and strategically.

To its core, DealCloud believes that every investment thesis is unique, and that the teams that execute on it should have a fully configurable, unified technology platform to act as the central hub for relationship intelligence. We’re proud to deliver these solutions to companies of all shapes and sizes, ranging from high-volume and publicly traded corporate acquirers to those looking for their first add-on.
DealCloud was built to enable corporate development teams and leaders at acquisitive publicly-traded and private companies more effectively manage their deal pipelines and relationships. This technology was built to be configurable, responding to the unique needs of corporations and flexible enough to account for all of the complexities of M&A transactions.

Maintaining visibility on the wide array of strategic acquisition opportunities can be extremely challenging, especially since most corporate development teams are small and have limited resources at their disposal. With DealCloud, deal teams get access to a single source of truth for all potential acquisition targets, industry executives, and a historical view of the relationship. Transaction targets can be thoughtfully categorized in DealCloud by partnership or transaction type, business unit, status, geography, and much more. When the corporation is ready to transact, DealCloud becomes the central hub for deal correspondences, interactions with lawyers, accountants, and consultants, documents, bid records, risk analyses and assessments, comparable deal analyses, and other relevant information.

From strategy to execution

Corporate development teams need to maintain visibility on developments in their industry, as well as keep track of emerging trends. Without DealCloud’s technology, corporate development teams are left managing these complex, often long-term transactions within simple Excel spreadsheets or out of email inboxes. This leaves them at a disadvantage and hampers their ability to compete with other acquisitive companies or private equity buyers.

Especially in today’s fast-paced, competitive environment, dealmakers need software to accelerate the time it takes to find key information and data. With DealCloud’s cloud-based web and mobile application, corporate development teams have all of their institutional knowledge and relationship data available at a moment’s notice.That’s why they leverage DealCloud’s platform to more effectively deploy capital and grow their companies:

 

  • PRIVATE COMPANY MONITORING
  • BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY TRACKING
  • INVESTMENT BANKER COVERAGE
  • INDUSTRY ANALYSIS
  • DEAL AND LEGAL DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT
  • INVESTMENT PROCESS CREATION AND MANAGEMENT

Corporate Development software features & solutions

An up-to-date deal pipeline is no longer a nice to have for corporate development teams, it’s a must have. With corporate consolidations on the rise and the M&A market white-hot, acquisitive companies must move quickly in order to have a fair shot at deals. No matter if you’re looking to execute an multi-company add-on strategy, merger, divestiture, or one-time acquisition, DealCloud has the tools and capabilities that corporate development teams need. Our software enables deal teams to originate deals through next-generation relationship management and business development solutions.

DealCloud provides corporate development teams with timely alerts on transaction targets who haven’t been contacted in a certain amount of time as well as easy-to-use tools that allow dealmakers to search, sort, and filter their data based on their transaction strategy. When the team is executing a deal, they can take advantage of DealCloud’s workflow tools which ensure proper due diligence as well as automated workflows to occur that reduce the administrative burden associated with repetitive tasks. Whether on the buy-side or sell-side (or both sides), DealCloud’s technology was made with the day-to-day needs of corporate development professionals in mind.
