Vital IT diligence provider with specific industry experience


Challenge

A PE firm vice president came to us with a critical need for an IT diligence provider for a target they had in the intellectual development disabilities area of the healthcare services industry. With an LOI on the target and a need to close the deal by year-end, the PE firm urgently needed an IT diligence provider that specifically understood this niche area of the healthcare industry to come in and identify IT needs, risks, and opportunities for the target within the next two weeks.

Solution

Leveraging our founder’s 20 years in private equity, we have extensive frameworks for assessing PE-grade IT diligence needs. BluWave utilizes technology, data, and human ingenuity to pre-map, assess, monitor, and maintain deep pools of IT diligence providers that uniquely meet the private equity standard. We interviewed the PE firm to understand their specific key criteria and then connected the client with a select pre-vetted IT diligence provider from our invitation-only Intelligent Network that fit their exact needs.

Result

Within 24 hours of the initial scoping call, the PE firm was introduced to a select PE-grade IT diligence provider with experience on similar projects in the behavioral health and rehabilitation space. The PE firm was able to confidently engage this provider without wasting time or cost and quickly gained the needed information about the target’s IT systems to make an informed decision on how to proceed.

“This provider had great customer service and worked with our timeline, which kept getting delayed, moving quickly when given the greenlight. We are very satisfied and will very likely work with them again.”
