"The use of iDeal on our buyside deals has given us an advantage in reaching deal insights in half the time and with a greater level of confidence than using traditional approach. We get a larger degree of confidence knowing that the granular data of the business has been analysed to support the top-level trends. Recently, iDeal was critical on our buyside efforts in relation to a large wealth management business where third party industry datasets were blended with detailed target financial and operational performance metrics which allowed us to validate our investment hypothesises as we progressed through our IC process. This analysis was quickly updated and kept live throughout the deal as additional reporting months and information was made available". - M&A Client
M&A data analytics is all about asking - and answering - smarter questions throughout the M&A lifecycle. Using iDeal, here are some of the types of questions you might be answering today:
iDeal's capabilities can generate game-changing benefits for companies when it matters most. Here are a few of those most frequently cited benefits by clients.
Get there faster. In M&A, insights are more useful when they are generated in time to affect decision making. With intuitive interfaces and near real-time insight delivery, M&A data analytics have been found to make it easier to generate and leverage insights.
Enhance the value of data. Today, many M&A-focused analytics insights are used for highly focused moments or decisions. But the value of the data used in these scenarios, combined with data from elsewhere, can have an equally important impact in other phases of the lifecycle, such as integration and post-integration.
Go deeper. Too often, surface-level data doesn’t convey a broad or deep story. With the ability to analyse micro-level details and correlate them to macro-level decisions, M&A leaders using iDeal should be better equipped to uncover the story behind the numbers.
