DELIVERING A RETURN TO PRIVATE EQUITY & INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS
“With its outstanding track record in the financial services market, we had no hesitation in partnering with Scott Logic to build our revolutionary web-based data analysis platform for fund managers and institutional investors.”
Client founder/product owner
How Scott Logic was appointed to design, develop and deliver an industry-revolutionising software product to provide a standardised, transparent methodology for analysing private equity performance.
/ THE CLIENT
Founded by a team of PE professionals, the client’s aim was to enable a fresh, industry standard approach to the way private equity fund managers and institutional investors analyse and share information about fund performance.
/ THE SOLUTION
Scott Logic created an elegant web-based platform that makes track record creation, analysis and distribution more efficient. The user interface is comprised of on-screen widgets that can be configured and customised to suit. Clear and impactful data visualisation, blending tabular and chart formats, delivers insight on performance over multiple dimensions and timeframes. The unique web-based interface enables intricate filtering and drill-down in order to analyse in-depth data.
/ THE SCOTT LOGIC APPROACH – UX-LED & AGILE!
Scott Logic led the client through the complete product development journey. The team adopted a UX-led Agile approach, enabling the client to visualise and experiment with product concepts, rapidly turning them into working software.
The integrated UX and development team built the product through a series of Agile sprints, resulting in an initial product launch in September 2013.
Once the tool was established in the marketplace, the team adopted a continuous delivery model, gathering regular customer feedback to prioritise major enhancements, such as benchmarking and what if modules, as well as usability and functional improvements.
/ THE RESULTS
Scott Logic created an elegant and innovative platform that has the ability to completely revolutionise how fund managers and institutional investors work.
It was delivered both on time and on budget and is now benefiting a growing client list. Development has continued post the initial launch, to further enhance the client’s reputation offering the best due diligence and performance analysis in the market.
