Traditional Diligence vs Accelerator Diligence
What we do differently
Traditional diligence relies on TTM and provides a snapshot based on past performance and current circumstances.
FortéOne Accelerator Diligence is both past and future-focused — identifying opportunities for revenue and margin improvements as well as a company’s ability to implement change and achieve growth.
We don’t stop with where a company is now. We tell you exactly where it could go.
Traditional diligence uses a check-the-box backward-facing approach, with secondary research from separate vendors.
FortéOne Accelerator Diligence is comprehensive — a full picture of the entire business — with a strong focus on the customer.
Why? Because looking at a company piece-by-piece isn’t going to tell the entire story. And nothing represents the state (or potential) of a company more strongly than its positioning with customers.
What We Deliver
Traditional diligence leaves you with a list of things to fix.
FortéOne Accelerator Diligence provides a detailed plan for maximizing enterprise value. We don’t just tell you what’s wrong. We tell you how to fix it, and how to improve on it.
And we don’t stop there.
We work with you side-by-side to implement your plan.
And if we don’t provide the value that we promise? We will refund the difference or continue working for free until we do.
