Benefits at a Glance

Navigating PE ownership can be complicated. Maestro makes it easier.

Increased visibility.

Feeling frustrated by a lack of visibility into your sponsor’s strategic priorities? Not for long. Maestro digitizes the value creation plan – transforming initiatives into actionable workflows that provide you with greater predictability (ensuring you won’t feel surprised by your sponsor’s requests).

Decreased requests.

It’s a tale of too many questions: operating and deal teams aren’t always well-connected, which means management gets hit with multiple requests for the same data. Maestro eliminates these headaches by centralizing all relevant intel – providing a single source of truth for you and your investors.

Stronger alignment.

In a recent study, 89% of PE-backed CFOs reported the need for more effective communication with their fund sponsors. Built to address this, Maestro provides a shared workspace that fosters real-time collaboration – increasing productivity and ensuring alignment around the growth plan.

Weaker coffee.

Less doubt around the value creation plan; less requests for data; less breakdowns in communication – all of this adds up to one thing: less need for caffeine. In other words, Maestro creates efficiencies that will drastically reduce the need for long nights and never-ending email trails.
