Leveraging Technology to Unlock Hidden Value

Accordion helps private equity-backed companies unlock and maximize transformational value through technology. Most often, our team is engaged when portfolio companies are struggling with a range of financial and operational challenges as they progress through the value creation journey.


Our digital transformation experts pair best-in-class processes with best-in-breed technology solutions to enable scale, reduce costs, generate predictive insights, improve working capital, and accelerate value. Here’s how:

Extract Maximum Value from Existing Tech Platforms:

From ERP to CPM and more, our cross-functional teams examine key business processes, assess technology platforms in use, and identify gaps and opportunities to enhance the efficiency of accounting, finance, and operations through existing technology platforms.

Create a Roadmap Aligned with Deal Thesis:

Our team develops a comprehensive roadmap inclusive of people, process, and technology improvements and initiatives aligned to the deal thesis. This alignment ensures a practical, ROI-driven approach to implementing the highest value initiatives expected to generate the greatest return during the investment cycle.

Make Data-Driven Decisions:

We explore the best of the “newest” technologies (artificial intelligence, business intelligence, machine learning, robotic process automation, etc.) to drive greater visibility – enabling better decision-making to maximize value creation.

Enhance the Finance Function:

We help our clients drive down finance costs and remove barriers to realizing value creation opportunities by improving working capital performance and ensuring effective and efficient use of finance and accounting platforms and applications.

Optimize Operations:

We identify and address inefficient operational activities, pursue opportunities to reduce materials and services costs, and ensure accuracy and visibility of demand forecasts, inventory, and product tracking.
