Watertown, MA (PRWEB) July 26, 2010
Netage Solutions, Inc., a premier provider of front-office solutions for the alternative assets industry, and Q-Biz Solutions, LLC, a leading provider of private equity back-office solutions, today announced the availability of Dynamo Connector for PEView, an integration between their respective front- and back-office solutions. Following more than two years of working together at joint client sites, the partnership formalizes the relationship between the two best-of-breed vendors, and affirms their commitment to maintaining this integration through future product releases.
In the past, private equity and venture capital firms seeking easier maintenance and data sharing often implemented all-in-one suites, only to be disappointed with their poor usability and rudimentary functionality for certain user groups. With frustrations mounting and user adoption languishing, many of these organizations have begun to dismantle their legacy suites in favor of a best-of-breed approach.
Netage Solutions and Q-Biz Solutions are best-of-breed vendors focused on the front- and back-office, respectively. Their relationship dates back more than two years, when they first integrated their Dynamo™ and PEView™ solutions for a multi-billion dollar venture capital firm. Based on their complementary offerings, the two companies decided to formalize a non-exclusive partnership and their commitment to maintaining integration through future product releases and upgrades.
“Within the last year, we’ve seen a significant uptick in the number of firms that replaced the front-office, or CRM, component of an all-in-one suite with our Dynamo platform,” said Netage CEO and Co-Founder Krassen Draganov. “Recognizing this tidal shift, it only made sense to partner with a proven back-office specialist like Q-Biz Solutions. Together, we have delivered an integrated, enterprise-wide solution that is superior to any suite on the market.”
Dynamo Connector for PEView allows private equity and venture capital firms to realize the efficiencies and data integration of an all-in-one system without sacrificing usability or functionality. Because the two applications run on Microsoft SQL Server, the integration is simple and seamless. Financial/transactional data captured in PEView can be periodically synchronized with Dynamo™, helping to streamline data capture, analysis, and reporting. As a result, firms can provide investors with greater transparency, while at the same time streamlining internal processes and improving their own decision-making.
“As the only provider focused exclusively on the private equity back-office, we are frequently asked about front-office/CRM applications,” said Jayne Thompson, Founder and Managing Member of Q-Biz Solutions. “With the Dynamo Connector for PEView, we can provide clients with an integrated end-to-end solution with both Q-Biz and Netage focusing on our respective ‘sweet spots’. Dynamo’s extensive MS Outlook integration and our extension of the MS Office suite from the Microsoft Dynamics™ GP platform make this partnership a natural fit to advance communication of critical information to a private equity firm’s current and prospective limited partners.”
Netage’s Dynamo platform is used by more than 200 firms worldwide to manage front-office processes, such as deal tracking, fundraising, investor relations, and fund reporting. Q-Biz Solutions’ PEView is a private equity back-office system that was developed as an add-on to Microsoft Dynamics GP, a widely-used and time-tested accounting solution. Both applications were designed by former private equity professionals with an intimate understanding of the industry’s workflows and business needs.
