Features update: Enhanced Financials

12 January 2016 Sam HockleyProduct

We’re excited to announce the launch of a new feature here at DueDil: Enhanced Financials. This feature brings an improved interface to our financial data, as well as key performance indicators (KPIs), long-term growth rates (CAGRs) and more.

We recognise that some of our users need access to advanced metrics, such as performance and growth indicators.

Thanks to the hard work of our Profiles team, these are now available directly within DueDil – with no need to export raw data and calculate the figures manually.

What is it?

Enhanced Financials introduces an updated interface for our financial data, making it easier to find the data you’re looking for. Historical graphs are now readily accessible for all financial fields within the Financials tab.

Six new financial metrics and 12 new KPIs are now available, including EBITDA and CFO to Sales Ratio.

This release also introduces a new Growth view, which displays the long-term growth rate (CAGR) of financial metrics on a 1, 3, 5 and 10 year basis.

How do I use it?

Enhanced Financials is simple to use. It’s found in the same place as our old Financial tab – no changes there.

The new table interface now presents data more clearly, and contains 18 new fields. Scrolling right will show up to 20 years of historical financial data.

Clicking on any of the financials will allow you to view the historical data as a chart, nested within the Financials page.

The new Growth view is accessed from a dropdown menu at the top right of the financials data – click here to switch between historical and growth data.

How does it help me?

For those in private equity or M&A, access to KPIs and CAGRs within DueDil means there is no longer any need to manually calculate the figures in Excel. It will also allow users to do more sophisticated prospecting than before.

But you don’t need to be a financial guru to benefit from this update.

Those in sales will benefit from the quick access to financial charts, and growth rates provide an easy but complete way to understand a company’s performance before picking up the phone.

For all users, the one-click graph feature makes our 20 years of company financials far more accessible and easier to understand at a glance. In addition, financial fields now carry tooltips so less experienced users can understand exactly what each field represents.

Enhanced Financials are available to our Trial, Premium and Enterprise customers.
