Private Equity Firm Slashes Fund Accounting Time By 90% with deFacto Global
This global private equity firm specializes in investing and acquiring companies across a wide range of industries, including technology, healthcare, energy, and financial services.
The firm used a combination of Computron and Excel reports, along with fund allocations in Excel, for their quarterly reporting. However, this system was inefficient, causing delays in generating and sharing reports. The manual process strained the firm’s resources, requiring significant time and effort. Additionally, the use of multiple platforms and manual processes increased the risk of human error, posing potential consequences for the firm.
dF Solution Statement/Results
To streamline the fund allocation process, deFacto Global implemented Power Planning to create a finance model with customized business rules focused on fund allocations. By leveraging this platform, the firm was able to automate the necessary fund allocation processes, eliminating the need for manual intervention and improving the overall efficiency of the process.
In addition to the finance model, the implementation also involved the creation of multiple input schedules and reports that were specifically tailored to the fund allocation process. These schedules and reports were designed to provide accurate data within the company, enabling the finance team to make informed decisions and better manage the allocation of funds.
As a result of our work, the client realized a 90% reduction in the time it took them to complete necessary fund allocation and reporting, allowing them to devote more time to other functional areas.
