MandAsoft.com is a simple but powerful information service that provides mergers and acquisitions data via a hosted, graphically enhanced and searchable database. MandAsoft.com is based on Berkery Noyes’ Information Industry Weekly report, an immensely popular resource for mergers and acquisitions data to many of the top executives of companies that have been shaping the future of information as we know it.
From the advent of digital print to the growth of the internet and interactive information, Berkery Noyes has tracked and mapped over 60,000 companies with its proprietary classification system using a combination of lexicon and taxonomy that we have termed lexography. Wanting to bring the results of this work to a larger audience, we created MandAsoft.com, a hosted version of our lexography based transaction data – where one can search companies and transactions in seconds and without any technical knowledge or initial need of an analyst. Although anyone interested in M&A would find MandAsoft.com to be highly useful, this service is geared towards a C-level executive who wants to quickly find and review information industry transactions and companies with an eye toward finding a match for their own products and services.
We encourage you to register to receive the basic access that provides a weekly email alert and, with it, the ability to review recent transactions as a timely, informative, and valuable service at no charge.
