Frequently Asked Questions
We get it; change can be intimidating. But the best thing about Maestro is that you DON’T have to reinvent your process. Our product simply enables you to centralize – and professionalize – the work you’re already doing. Instead of getting lost in a maze of disparate files, you’ll have a purpose-built software solution to act as your single source of truth.
Forget everything you know about software implementations. With Maestro, you can get started in a matter of hours. And, depending on the amount of your firm’s data, you can be fully up-and-running in just a few weeks. Whether your priority is building out your firm’s new Knowledge Hub, transitioning to real-time (digitized) reporting, or assessing portfolio company leadership, your dedicated Client Success Manager will train you in each feature and guide you throughout onboarding.
This answer varies by firm and depends on how your process works today. At its core, Maestro is designed to promote transparency and hold all stakeholders accountable. Deal teams, operating teams, and company management teams will collaborate directly in the platform – and each team member will be assigned to various initiatives. It will be the responsibility of whomever owns the initiative to keep the status up-to-date.
It’s no secret that management teams often lack visibility into their sponsor’s priorities and crave stronger alignment. Maestro provides a solution for exactly that – and more.
