HOW OFTEN DO SEARCHFUNDS/PE FIRMS PARTNER WITH A SOFTWARE CONSULTING FIRMS?


Hey Searchfunders,


Quick disclaimer - I don't have a background in PE/banking...so forgive me if this question is common knowledge...

I've been working with a friend (YC founder), building new products for businesses and founders. I was wondering how often do Searchfund Acquisitions/PE PortCo's partner with software consulting firms/agencies to build products to automate/optimize workflows?

In most businesses, there are plenty of inefficient processes, and implementing technology could help bring down costs (and increase exit multiples) significantly.

We were thinking it's a no-brainer to come in and evaluate current processes and implement automation/software to make PortCo's big money and take some % of that....

Is this a common practice in ETA/PE?

Thanks for your help in advance!!!

David
