Robust Research Tool

What do you like best?

The S&P Capital IQ Platform aggregates a vast amount of data from a huge number of sources and presents it in a logical and usable format. Links are provided for source data and the application allows interactive charting and data downloads.

What do you dislike?

Navigating the platform can be complicated at times, mostly owing to the huge amount of data available. Data errors are found occasionally, but S&P's quality improvement team fixes these issues quickly when they're pointed out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

S&P offers trials and phone training (sometimes on an informal basis) - take advantage of both.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

-Given the volume of private company data included in the system, there can be an issue of running into stale data that is no longer accurate

Great, but not amazing for private company information

What do you like best?

The platform is organized and everything is downloadable and very intuitive. Contains information about almost every company in the planet. It can be accessed remotely.

What do you dislike?

Some information like comparable transactions are not good and not exactly comparable transactions. Does not have a lot of research reports and is very expensive to run

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pretty easy to use, but if you are looking at private company information only, other software might be better. Very useful especially in banking, while doing precedent transaction analysis and public company comparable analysis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Information about any company, and it saves time when I want to completely understand what a company does

I disliked that sometimes the server would just stop working and you would have to go re log on but it does indicate that you must log in again.

Well organized data at your fingertips

What do you like best?

Cap IQ makes research a breeze. All of the major metrics and ratios are already calculated for you, and comparing results to analyst forecasts are straightforward.

What do you dislike?

Not all metrics are available on an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software allows for easy benchmarking and the excel plug in feature really helps with keeping data current and building graphs.
