Share Article

A recently completed survey, commissioned by Performance Improvement Partners, involving more than 150 of America’s most respected Private Equity firms indicates leading fund managers are looking for new ways to improve their Portfolio Companies’ business performance by better leveraging existing operational and financial data.

"Fund managers are looking for ways to help their businesses run better through improvements in, and better use of, technology.”

A recently completed survey involving more than 200 of America’s most respected Private Equity firms indicates leading fund managers are looking for new ways to improve their Portfolio Companies’ business performance by better leveraging existing operational and financial data.

Not surprisingly, the annual survey also indicated managers had a strong interest in identifying new ways to improve the use of currently-owned technology rather than invest heavily in new systems that would be a drain on financial and human resources. Other areas of significant interest included better ways to integrate new acquisitions into existing investments, the use of business intelligence to improve and enhance decision making, as well as a growing concern around cyber security.

“Clearly fund managers are looking for ways to help their businesses run better through improvements in, and better use of, technology,” said Dan Ahrens, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Performance Improvement Partners, the survey sponsor. “They’re asking for pragmatic sanity.”

“It’s also a significant finding that 50 percent of the fund managers took time out of their busy schedules to respond,” added PIP’s Co-Founder and President John H. Bisack III. “They recognize the critical role technology now plays in improving enterprise value. They want to be educated with timely information they can put to immediate use.”
