Overview

DEALS
(US Patent No. 7,640,196)

DEALS® is the leading edge web-enabled decision support software that corporate executives, economic developers, and their services providers use to assess, model, and negotiate capital investment projects. Our software is used to combine economic and demographic data, project specifications, and information on alternative business scenarios and financial projections. Then, the software screens locations according to criteria selected by the user, calculates the relative start-up and operating costs in the candidate locations and transactions under consideration, compares the bottom line results of different decision choices, and guides the user through determining and negotiating the optimal operating environment for a particular business operation or facility.

This system also allows EDAs to focus on their locations' competitive strengths and weaknesses as against those of other locations vying for a corporate project. As a result, DEALS covers both the supply and demand sides of corporate development, expansion, consolidation, and location/relocation projects.

DEALS is available in two ways, depending on a particular client's desires. First, we make DEALS available by itself on a subscription basis directly to companies, EDAs, and/or their service providers for their own individual or collaborative use with each other. Second, if the client has engaged us to provide our highly regarded strategic management and project consulting services, then we use DEALS to augment and deliver our consulting in those engagements. Either way, to craft, make, and execute well-informed capital investment decisions, DEALTEK teams with its clients to apply our technology to their capital investment projects, so that everyone can get to the negotiating table faster and then to the closing table faster.

Just about every business goes through these project decisions at least once for its operations or facilities. EDAs get involved in many such projects each year, as do related service providers. However, too often, because a good decision tool hasn't been available, project teams are frustrated or at least unsure whether they are making the optimal decisions. As a result, deal making has been cumbersome, confusing, and expensive. DEALS helps to solve these problems. Among other benefits, DEALS provides the following:

  • Speed. In the past, these projects took months or even years. But today's quick pace demands rapid turnarounds. DEALS is fast, easy to use, and comprehensive.
  • Efficiency. Budgets and resources are tight. The economy is uncertain, so is the project's viability particularly in its early stages. The project team can't afford to unnecessarily allocate resources to a project. DEALS allows project teams to efficiently control early-stage costs, collect and analyze data, model results, and track negotiations.
  • Process. Companies and EDAs often have no personnel or process to dedicate to the project, at least not without disrupting the regular course of business. For a company, DEALS is a battle-tested decision process to model and manage a strategic yet rare project. For an EDA, DEALS is a process to see multiple projects from the companies' perspectives. So, DEALS creates order out of chaos in one or many projects.
  • Flexibility. Projects are dynamic. The economic and demographic data, market conditions, and business scenarios certainly will change during the project. With DEALS, you can readily change decision criteria, model an infinite number of "what if" scenarios, and optimize the decision choices as the project evolves from conception through implementation. DEALS is a flexible, low-risk alternative to traditionally rigid methods.
  • Competitive Advantage. To survive and hopefully thrive, a company must gain advantage over its competitors -- whether in workforce, operating costs, logistics, or market proximity. Similarly, each EDA faces stiff competition to attract or retain these projects, and needs to justify that its location is the best one for a company. With DEALS, companies and EDAs can benchmark cost structures and other location attributes against those of their competition. DEALS pinpoints the advantages - and disadvantages - in alternative business environments.
  • Security. DEALS has state-of-the-art physical, firewall, monitoring, intrusion detection, filtering, and encryption technology to protect all authentication, access, hardware, software, database, and data transmission components.
  • Money-Back Guaranty. We know from user feedback that DEALS is valuable, useful, and reliable. However, if a subscriber is ever unsatisfied with DEALS, then DEALTEK will refund a prorated amount of the subscription fee based on the time that has elapsed since the subscription period began.
