Tackling Digital Transformation in Portfolio Companies

Current conditions are increasingly driving companies to adopt new technologies and undertake digital transformation to enhance the way they do business. Many private equity (PE) portfolio companies struggle with transformation – whether due to inexperience, outdated or fragile systems, or wavering commitment in the face of current business demands.

CapTech leverages 24 years of experience as technology leaders and digital transformation partners to support PE portfolio companies across the technology and digital landscape. CapTech directly supports the vision for value and growth shared by the portfolio company and PE by helping navigate the challenges along the way.

Supporting Transformations for a Large PE Fund's Portfolio Companies

We have delivered digital and technology advancements at several portfolio companies, all driven by each portfolio company’s unique needs and the PE fund’s investment theses.

Building a PE Portfolio Company's Digital Tools to Optimize Sales

A national yearbook and memorabilia company’s sales team spent multiple hours pricing a single yearbook due to pricing-rule complexity. They also lacked visibility into their performance to help them plan throughout the year. The company knew that upgrading to Salesforce would alleviate a lot of the burden. They needed a strong partner who could implement Salesforce effectively while balancing requirements against a desire to leverage out-of-the-box functionality.

With CapTech’s help, the client is now able to enjoy the benefits of new features, such as dashboards, pricing changes, commissions, and incentives – all intended to help maximize profitability. The new system also yields significant time savings due to simplification, integration of other client systems, and ease of use.
