St. Paul, Minn. – September 19, 2018 – Merrill Corporation, a global provider of solutions designed to improve outcomes in mergers and acquisition, today announced the general availability of more than 30 new features for DatasiteOne, the only SaaS application specifically designed for due diligence. The features are grouped around three core innovation areas – dashboards and visual analytics, risk mitigation and productivity tools - resulting in accelerated data-driven decisions across the due diligence process.
Thomas Fredell, chief product officer of Merrill, said, “With these new features hitting the market, Merrill DatasiteOne gives due diligence professionals additional tools to disclose information, establish risk profiles and divest or invest in businesses. Our clients are making dozens of these types of decisions daily about their pending transactions, and we now provide them with deeper, more robust analytics capabilities than have ever been available.”
The new DatasiteOne dashboard presents a dynamic, highly visual presentation of the most critical KPIs surrounding a due diligence process, with the goal of informing incisive strategic decision making. Users access customized data sets without needing a technical skill set by using the intuitive tools contained in the DatasiteOne environment. In addition, DatasiteOne gives users the ability to upload third-party comparative data, customize reports and drill down into deal information with sophisticated filtering options to more easily identify high-interest buyers. This can result in faster deal completion with superior outcomes.
RJ David, vice president, The Carlyle Group said: “DatasiteOne is a highly innovative and intuitive tool that allows our deal teams to optimize the management of our deal process. It’s incredibly easy to use, which makes its capabilities all that much more valuable. We are getting meaningful insight into the state of a transaction with just a few clicks, enabling us to make quicker decisions and be more strategic as we move deals forward.”
Alongside the enhanced reporting and analytics functionality, DatasiteOne has also significantly improved question and answer (Q&A) capabilities; optical character recognition (OCR) and search, which now operates in 11 languages to better support cross-border deals; and a suite of tools that help users unlock productivity in a highly intuitive and simple-to-use environment.
