The Salentica Product Team is pleased to announce the release of Major Release 2. The main feature of Major Release 2 is the new Salentica Deals App. Here at Salentica, we know that capital investments can help your firm grow rapidly whether in your area of expertise or in new business offerings. Expanding your business can also prove to be a large investment of time and operational effort for your firm. The Deals app is your all-in-one resource to track and manage all of your non-marketable assets including mergers, acquisitions, real estate, and other capital investments.

 

Using the new Deals tools, you can memorialize your emails, meeting notes, investment details, and business protocols relating to your investment and expansion efforts in one place, allowing greater access and transparency for collaboration with your team. We have created new objects including Investments, Investment Opportunities, and included access to InTouch Service Levels and Time/Expense for ease of tracking and optimization of business processes.

 

We have also expanded the tracking capabilities through custom fields for Contacts, Companies, Outreach, and Due Diligence. No need to keep track of multiple documents and sources of information when all your data can be easily referenced and shared with the right people in the Deals App. Take a look at the new objects below!


Accessing the App

You can find the new Deals icon in Engage under the Apps list. For enhanced security, only permissioned users can view and access the app.

App visibility and access are provided through a new Permission Set. Click the item you want to view to quickly redirect to the specific record or click +New to create a new record. 

 


Investments

Managing a collection of merger and acquisition records from successful investments requires a centralized location to collect important information. This object allows you to track existing investments and any related Activities such as your phone calls, meetings and emails. Keep in touch with the right person at the right time with InTouch Service Levels. Track your investment-related Time/Expense as well as Due Diligence here. 


Companies

Mergers and acquisitions require tracking essential and important documentation on key companies that are being acquired or investments acquired from. Keep all your relevant details for quick reference here, including Activities, such as emails, meetings, phone calls, and tasks. Track your Due Diligence efforts and the company's financial details.


Leads

Store key information and research on your prospect or potential sales opportunities, including Activities related to the lead. All your important information will roll up to the Investment Opportunity once your lead is qualified. You can also keep track of disqualified leads for future reference.

 


Investment Opportunities

There are numerous opportunities for capital investment in the field of Mergers and Acquisitions. The Investment Opportunities entity allows you to track your investment opportunities through the investment pipeline process. You can track a wide range of holdings across industries. Investment Opportunities allows for the centralized tracking of potential investments and quick executive action against existing acquisition and merger activities portfolios. Quickly and easily view the investment details. Activities allow you to track your emails, phone calls, and meetings related to the opportunity. Keep your communications up to date with InTouch Service Levels and track your efforts through Time/Expense. Due Diligence gives you a place to keep track of all your due diligence efforts. An Investment is automatically created once the Opportunity is Closed as Won. 


InTouch

A great new feature we've added is the new InTouch information on the Investment and Investment Opportunities objects. Quickly see details on when your last email, conversation, and review were performed. View your Next InTouch dates for your conversations, reviews, and emails so that you can easily keep up to date with your outreach on your Investments and Investment Opportunities.
