"We are seeing an increasing number of companies that want to move away from spreadsheets and clunky emails to a multi-user solution that allows teams to more effectively manage their M&A process," said Nick Perdikis, CEO, Devensoft. "This trend is being fueled by the high volume of M&A transactions in the market, coupled with a highly competitive environment.  Companies need to close deals quickly before competitors have a chance to wage a bidding war.  We are seeing this play out in the hospitality industry.  Our goal is to remove the obstacles that slow down the acquisition and integration process so that M&A teams can do their jobs effectively."

According to recent survey findings published by KPMG titled "U.S. executives on M&A: full speed ahead in 2016," the top critical success factors most important for deal success are:

  • A well-executed integration plan
  • The correct valuation / deal price
  • Effective due diligence, including real-time data and analytics
  • Positive economic conditions

"At Devensoft, we are witnessing a tipping point in how leading companies manage their M&A process," said Nick Perdikis. "We hear time and time again that generic CRM tools are simply inadequate to track the complexities of an M&A deal. With the release of V16, we have defined a whole new category of software we call Deal Relationship Management.  In essence it's CRM for M&A.  It addresses the needs of corporate development teams throughout the entire deal life cycle, from target tracking, due diligence management to deal signing. Priced on a per seat subscription basis, companies can begin with a starter pack and add seats as deals progress through the pipeline and adoption increases in the organization."

The Devensoft M&A Cloud solution addresses KPMG's top three critical success factors responsible for deal success.  V16 incorporates numerous enhancements and new features including:

  • Enhanced activity tracking for every Target
  • Role-based landing pages to ease adoption and simplify usability
  • Due diligence management to capture findings and action items
  • Financial tracking with plan, actual, and multiple forecast snapshots
  • Real-time analytics with Qlik Sense
  • Overall usability improvements across the entire platform

V16 will launch May 1, 2016.
