Technical/Software Due Diligence

Shouldn't you lift the lid before investing?

Are you about to invest in a company? A Technical Due Diligence is an important part of most Merger & Acquisition processes – especially if your target company’s core business is software-related.

Startups and scaleups are often attractive targets, but they can also be challenging. There can be a lot of turmoil in early-stage startups, staff turnover tends to be high, and the technical debt tends to increase as the code base gets more and more complex. These things can all prove costly further down the road.

Differences from a Traditional Technical Due Diligence

Customer case

Technical Due Diligence: Confirming Code Status

“A traditional and full technical due diligence is complicated. It requires a lot of time, meetings and communication going back and forth. System Verification’s process, on the other hand, demanded very little of us. And this kind of ‘lighter version’ of a software due diligence was exactly what we wanted.”

– Thomas Schjerpen, Chief Technology Officer CatalystOne
Customer case
