Valutico Introduces New Feature to Support Documentation of Decisions and Assumptions
- Valutico launches a new “Notes” feature to document decisions and assumptions in valuations.
- The feature empowers users to justify and communicate valuation inputs to third parties effectively.
- Users can take comprehensive notes, facilitating internal reflection and collaboration with colleagues.
- The new feature now means Valutico provides users both “numbers” and “narratives” to add important depth to each valuation.
Valutico is excited to introduce its latest feature, “Notes,” designed to address the critical need for documenting decisions and assumptions in valuations. The new functionality aims to empower users to justify and communicate their valuation inputs effectively to third parties, such as clients, courts, and potential buyers.
Justifying Valuation Inputs Made Easy
Valuation processes often rely on standardized methodologies, but the decisions and assumptions underlying these valuations are highly subjective. When presenting a valuation to external parties, users frequently face the challenge of justifying specific decisions or assumptions made throughout the process. This could include explaining the selection of peers, rationale behind forecasts, or adjustments made during the quality assurance phase.
To overcome this challenge, Valutico’s new feature enables users to document decisions and assumptions directly within the platform. Users can take comprehensive notes to remind themselves of the reasoning behind specific choices or areas that require further analysis. This documentation not only facilitates internal reflection but also serves as a valuable resource for discussing decisions and assumptions with colleagues working on the valuation.
“We recognize the importance of providing our users with the tools they need to justify their valuations and enhance trust in their work,” said Paul Resch, CEO at Valutico. “Our new feature allows users to document decisions and assumptions comprehensively, empowering them to demonstrate their expertise, professionalism, and preparation.”
Seamless Integration For an End-to-End Valuation Workflow
The new functionality caters to a diverse range of users who require robust documentation capabilities. Notetaking facilitates collaboration and discussion among team members, providing a platform to explain and share rationales. But users can also leverage the solution to present well-structured and professional justifications for their valuations to clients or other stakeholders, even when they don’t have access to the underlying spreadsheet-based model.
Currently, users resort to workarounds such as maintaining separate documents for note-taking. Valutico’s new feature eliminates the need for third-party tools and consolidates all documentation within the platform, aligning with the company’s commitment to an end-to-end valuation workflow.
By introducing this feature, Valutico aims to improve user experiences and enhance trust in valuations. Users will also be able to export the comprehensive documentation as part of their reports as part of a planned update in an upcoming phase, which will foster transparent communication with third parties and showcase the thought process behind their valuation inputs.
