"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?

The data presented on Capital IQ represents several hours of work combing through financial statements that our firm no longer has to perform. It has become and essential tool in our day-to-day operations.

"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

"Great insight with user freindly interface."

What do you like best?

Strong financial data, news feed, custom dashboards with charts and graphs. A go to source for anyone watching industry or market trends.

What do you dislike?

Limited contact info for people working within target organizations. News of new company formations can also be delayed. When creating timely alerts for sales people timeliness is key.

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

I find new company formations, M&A, and A&D which represent opportunities for us. I also use CPQ for finding new customers and data appends. The oil & gas industry news also helps keep our company up to date.

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