The quality and depth of KMS Technology’s reviews have been super helpful not only to us but to the companies that we invest in. They get right into the source code and give line-specific feedback. The fact that they write code themselves and audits are not their sole source of revenue gives them a differentiator in the market

Technology Due Diligence FAQs

Technology due diligence is a process of diving deep into a software company to understand the current state of the technology and the company structure, identify risks and liabilities, and create a realistic plan to address areas of improvement. Technology due diligence enables investors to make informed decisions to strengthen their portfolios.

Being aware of the risks and rewards associated with an acquisition allows companies and firms to make the most informed decisions regarding a potential acquisition or add-on, and to accurately determine the target’s full potential as an investment opportunity.

KMS provides tailored due diligence according to your needs and timeline. Whether you need highly detailed assessments, including line-by-line code scans, or high-level due diligence with a quick turnaround, KMS has you covered. We then provide recommendations informed by our team’s extensive experience in tech and private equity.

Having built and launched our own software companies, we understand the pitfalls that hold products back and the improvements that drive significant growth.

When every investment dollar matters, PE firms need a true understanding of the technology state of a software product for any M&A conversation. The quality of a software can greatly influence the time and resources needed to prepare a company for an exit and ultimately gain ROI. Due diligence not only helps investors reduce risk, but it also gives them a plan of action to accelerate growth and tackle the areas of greatest need. Thus, each dollar goes farther.
