Falfurrias Capital Partners (FCP), a Charlotte-based private equity firm focused on growth-oriented, middle-market businesses, today announced the merger of Corsis, a provider of data-powered technology due diligence services, with its newest portfolio company, Crosslake Technologies.
Corsis brings a consistent, data-driven approach to technology due diligence assessments through their extensive TechIndicator best practice library and proprietary Confidence Index scoring methodology. With their proprietary software, Corsis delivers actionable insights to private equity firms and portfolio companies via a centralized dashboard, complete with objective benchmarking data that help them prioritize technology initiatives, maximizing both short- and long-term success.
Corsis has supported $30 billion in deal value and guided more than 200 private equity firms and portfolio companies with their objective and reliable analysis of technology operations throughout the investment lifecycle.
