EKNOW Inc. is an independent software vendor (ISV) that specializes in developing the M&A Tools, a cloud-based software platform for managing corporate development, mergers, acquisitions, and transformation initiatives. The company was founded in 1998 as EKNOW LLC and became EKNOW Inc., a Delaware C corporation, the following year. Headquartered in Arlington, VA, EKNOW has been continuously operating for over 23 years.
EKNOW's M&A Tools platform is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that offers business process automation, project management, reporting, and communication tools for M&A teams and consultants. The platform is modular and customizable to fit the unique needs of each client. EKNOW's flat-fee bundle pricing model covers the system and all support, ensuring predictable costs and eliminating user license administration.
What sets EKNOW apart is its unique focus on M&A tools. The company is solely dedicated to developing and supporting its M&A Tools platform and has no other products or services. This specialization allows EKNOW to offer the most actively developed, capable, and flexible high-end M&A tool in the industry.
EKNOW's technology approach is also distinctive. The entire M&A Tools platform is built using their proprietary M&A Objects and ToolBuilder, enabling faster development and customization without relying heavily on code. This approach provides clients with more flexibility to tailor the software to their specific needs while still receiving regular updates and support from EKNOW.
EKNOW serves a wide range of clients including corporate teams responsible for post-merger integration, corporate development, or strategic transformation initiatives. They work closely with management consultant partners in the M&A or transformation practices who use the M&A Tools to enhance their offerings.
With its long track record of continuous innovation, unique business model, specialized focus on M&A tools, and innovative technology approach, EKNOW has established itself as a trusted provider of M&A software solutions.
