iLEVEL Releases Private Capital Data Platform 7.0

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

iLEVEL, the leading portfolio monitoring, analytics and transparency platform for the global private capital markets, announces today the release of iLEVEL 7.0.

This latest release to the iLEVEL cloud-based, SaaS platform includes significantly improved design and usability, along with dramatic functionality enhancements across all asset classes and firm types. Together, these improvements make iLEVEL 7.0 the premier solution for any private capital firm or investor wanting to control their data, and realize the results.

“We’ve been blown away by the positive reaction of our clients to iLEVEL 7.0. It represents a quantum leap forward in user experience, flexibility and functionality, and dramatically extends and enhances our ability to add value throughout the private capital ecosystem,” said Kevin Black, CEO of iLEVEL. “For investment firms and their limited partners – across all private asset classes – nothing else comes close.”

New and enhanced features include:

  • Portal and iPad app redesign. A new navigation and analytics system enables users to easily access portfolio-level, asset-level, and fund-level reports, as well as company- or industry-specific KPIs and analytics.
  • Enhanced data visualization. New display options for data presentations enable users to choose from document lists, Google Maps™, and waterfall charts. Presentations can be printed or saved as images and used to enrich reports.
  • Data validation tools. New business rules and exception reports minimize the risk of invalid data entering the system even further, and facilitate the data approval process (e.g., restatement notifications, etc.).
  • Integrated Document Library. Data cited within a specific report or presentation can now be tied directly to the source document in the iLEVEL Document Library or displayed directly on the portal.

“iLEVEL has continued to evolve the platform over the years, and the newly redesigned portal continues to push the envelope of what’s possible,” said Bill Murphy, Senior Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer at The Blackstone Group. “The latest enhancements will enable us to identify and report on trends with even greater visual flexibility and detail.”
