General Catalyst (GC) currently runs the fund using Salesforce as the master data repository and Google Drive for document storage. Different departments use multiple siloed systems for data management, ranging from Excel to external commercial tools to custom-built user-facing apps.
The major Problem with that is the suboptimal time to make the final decision. Analysts can’t rely on the existing data due to possible human errors and complicated data management. That is why even simple reports preparation becomes a time-consuming burden requiring manual operations to make data reporting-ready.
The Solution to those problems is to build a unified data platform that will be integrated with Salesforce and other existing systems to efficiently transform financial, legal, and ops data to datamarts ready for interaction and comprehensive visualization with BI tools on Web and Mobile platforms.
Leveraging the GC comprehensive data pool will supercharge the reporting and decision-making with elegant and functional BI dashboards for all business users, and provide a lasting competitive advantage through technology.
