Flexible Data Ingestion Options

Some call it “data ingestion.” The rest of us call it getting your portfolio company data and fund metrics in a central database to serve as a single source of truth for your firm.

User-configured Data Collection Templates: Create the template your portfolio companies will find easy to use, filling in the metrics you need.

Automated Email Sequencing: Seamlessly send requests and reminders for data from portfolio companies while ensuring efficient, accurate, and secure data collection.

Data Collection Status Dashboard: Check in on all your portfolio companies’ response statistics, ensuring that data is collected efficiently and accurately.

Document Storage: Store critical documents in a central place, and grant access to those at your firm who need it.

Managed Data Services (MDS): Leverage the Cobalt team to support data collection, ensuring accurate information is entered every time.
