Integral service around a transaction

The advantages of software as a service, SaaS, are numerous. On the one hand, sophisticated business applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM), are available to companies without the resources to purchase, deploy and manage the necessary infrastructure and software. On the other hand, it is very easy to "mobilise" staff, as users have access to both these applications and data from any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet. In addition, there is no need to bring in qualified staff to manage the security aspects of mobile computing.

One of the exponents of this technology is Onna Technologies.

We are talking about an American startup of Spanish origin based in San Francisco and Barcelona. It is dedicated to development of a SaaS tool that integrates with the main document sharing platforms (Google, Microsoft, Slack, Dropbox) and allows companies to automatically search, recognise and classify documents..

The company announced a few days ago that it has lifted $11Mled by the British venture capital fund Dawn Capitalwhose senior partner, Norman Fiore, is joining Onna's board. In addition, they have also participated in the capital increase Dropboxthe US Slack Fund and Nauta Capitalwhich was already a shareholder.

Onna Technologies shall allocate the resources received with the financing round to the expansion of its technological solution to cover a larger number of customers.

Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
