Dynamo Software provides asset management software solutions specifically for the alternative investment industry including private equity and venture capital funds, real estate investment firms, funds of funds, hedge funds and investors. Here is our recent interview with Krassen Draganov, CEO of Dynamo Software:
Q: You’ve recently announced the opening of Dynamo Software UK, tell us something more?
A: The opening of our London-based office is an integral element of supporting our growing European Dynamo™ client base. Our Cloud-based Dynamo™ investment management and online reporting platform has expanded features, mobility options, and data visualization, which has led to more alternative asset fund managers and institutional investors relying on the software platform. This office is another step to ensure our more than 350 clients with over $1 trillion in assets under management can receive the support they need.
Q: What is your core competence?
A: Dynamo Software provides asset management software solutions specifically for the alternative investment industry. Our client base encompasses private equity and venture capital groups, hedge funds, funds of funds, private equity real estate firms, prime brokers, fund administrators, institutional investors (such as endowments, foundations and pensions), and family offices.

Q: Tell us something more about your Dynamo product suite?
A: Dynamo™ provides feature sets that enhance the productivity and organization of both general and limited partnerships, and also serves as a hub for communications between the partnerships. General partnerships benefit from premier fundraising, deal management, investment research management, portfolio tracking and accounting, and client reporting features that directly integrate with Microsoft Office. Limited partnerships gain immediate insight into investment operations through versatile research management functionality, powerful portfolio analytics capabilities, and seamless integration with leading third-party data providers.
The Dynamo™ Investor Portal acts as a versatile hub for posting, receiving, and categorizing critical investor data and communications on a single screen. Limited partners can also utilize the Portal’s powerful classification and document validation features for effectively managing complex compliance processes.
The Dynamo™ product suite includes a mobile application for all smartphone and tablet platforms that enables users to access and share Dynamo™ data from any time and place. Our recent redesigned mobile application for iOS 8.0 enhanced interaction with contact profiles, single-click GPS integration, and an offline mode that enables users to access and edit records offline, and instantly sync with Dynamo™ when reconnected.

Q: What advantage does Dynamo Software have over its competitors?
A: Dynamo™ is set apart by an open architecture, which enables clients to make ongoing changes to the look, feel, and functionality of the software as their operational needs evolve, while seamlessly upgrading to the latest product upgrades. Brand-name CRM platforms, such as Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics require customer-requested customization of the software to be hard-coded, and these adjustments can be incompatible with later product updates which could create significant pain points for users. Dynamo’s™ flexibility ensures clients can seamlessly retain the presentation of the platform as new updates are introduced.
I am also proud of the tremendous work of our implementation team, which has been recognized by top opinion leaders and financial IT networks for exceptional client service. Since Dynamo Software is focused on the alternative investment industry, clients enjoy knowledgeable, highly personalized service when onboarding to the software. I encourage prospective users to visit our website (www.DynamoSoftware.com) and read the testimonials about our service from many of our internationally prominent investors, representing a diverse set of investment strategies and markets.
Q: What can we expect from Dynamo Software in next six months?
A: Our product team has been diligently working on the ways in which users can input and use their data, and now we’re turning to dramatically improving our user interface while retaining the intuitive navigation and robust, highly configurable feature sets that our clients have always associated with the product. We are very excited to present our users with a Dynamo™ experience sure to exceed their expectations.Activate Social Media:
