Industry titan Belden used DealRoom to navigate four end-to-end deals with increased efficiency. In a recent interview with DealRoom, Oleg K., M&A Business Development Analyst, shared that the DealRoom platform's intuitive design, regular feedback mechanisms, and consolidated information flow enabled their team to drastically optimize their M&A practice. From 100s of disparate excel trackers to a streamlined location for everything from pipeline management through to post-merger integration, Belden is able to eliminate misalignment across teams and accelerate deal lifecycle.
Over 60 New Product Innovations
In 2023 we had over 60 releases, from small enhancements to exciting new features. Keep reading to learn about a few highlights:
Gantt Chart View: DealRoom's Gantt Chart helps to eliminate team misalignment, especially when managing the post-merger integration proces. With this interactive view, M&A teams can quickly and easily understand task timelines, dependencies, and progress, providing teams with a way to clearly prioritize which tasks need to happen in order to keep a deal on track.
Deal Tasks: We added Deal Tasks to our Pipeline module so that users could easily create and associate tasks with specific deals, assign owners to those tasks, and seamlessly notify them via email. Deal Tasks increases visibility across teams in the early stages of the deal cycle so that no crucial next steps fall through the cracks, resulting in faster deal velocity.
Improved Pipeline Permissions: We upgraded our pipeline permissions to address the challenge of managing access to large deal pipelines across even larger teams. With potentially hundreds of targets, the risk of sensitive information falling into the wrong hands is mitigated by automating permission allocation based on specific criteria. This upgrade empowers users to set criteria-based access for different departments, managers, leadership teams, or stakeholders, ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive information.
