Specialty Software Development
A healthcare-focused client needed a firm that understood the healthcare ecosystem and could build outsourced software to manage data ingestion, perform data analysis and data mining, and present output in a user-friendly interface. A generalist outsourced firm that the company worked with had been unsuccessful, and the company urgently needed a strong alternative to meet customer demand.
After a short discovery discussion with the group overseeing the investment, BluWave leveraged its deep network in healthcare and technology to connect the client with three vetted boutique software development firms with broad experience developing software for the healthcare industry.
The client was able to quickly connect and contract with a world-class provider of software development services with relevant industry experience within their tight budget and schedule.
A private equity fund was in the process of buying a software company that was evolving from on-premise software to SaaS. A thorough evaluation of the software and development team was crucial. They had previously used generalist IT due diligence advisors, but found that they weren’t as rigorous or specialized enough to understand the nuances of software businesses. Rather than risking their diligence process, they asked BluWave to support them.
BluWave understood the importance of connecting them with a group that not only deeply understood how to assess the technology posture of a software company, but was also able to meet the unique rigors, standards, and timelines of the private equity market. BluWave connected them with a firm in its network that was not only solely focused on software but was also comprised of former software developers and exclusively focused on private equity.
The private equity fund received a deeper understanding of the challenge and opportunities facing the software company target, they were able to validate their valuation perspective, and inform their 100 day plan for post-closing value creation. The PE fund has since made the group their go-to resource for assessing software businesses.
