Pitchbooks are a hot topic for investment management firms these days. The number of inquiries we’ve received about our pitchbook automation software has tripled year over year — we find that very telling.
It’s no secret that marketing is in a huge state of flux right now, no matter what industry you’re in. A key driver of this uncertainty is the plethora of marketing communication and automation options.

One of the criteria often overlooked by asset managers during the vendor evaluation process is data management.
The urge to minimize the data problem during these discussions is understandable. Document or website production is the marketing team’s goal. Data aggregation and quality control shouldn’t be part of the marketer’s life, but very frequently it is. This is a challenge that should be addressed clearly and upfront in evaluating document automation options.
In beginning conversations, the first thing we try to find out is how their firm is currently handling data. We do this because data really lies at the heart of the communication problem; the question of how to clean up your communication effort goes hand in hand with the question of how your data process will be addressed. Thus, as you’re defining your document automation requirements, it’s wise to look at your data management scenario. In doing this, you determine whether you have the bandwidth and skills in-house to implement quality data feeds and controls or whether outsourcing is the better or more realistic option.
In this blog, we are going to discuss why your data process should drive your automation vendor decision. There are a variety of different kinds of vendors who can automate your marketing documents. So, you’ll want to determine whether you want a vendor/product that requires internal data source and process management or a vendor who will take responsibility for creating and supporting a quality data process.

If you’re a sales or marketing professional, your job boils down to good communications. Creating and delivering an effective and engaging presentation is an incredibly important skill that usually starts with the marketing team and ends with the sales team.
The success of your efforts is determined by how well you persuaded your audience to take action.
When asset management marketers create sales presentation and pitchbook materials, they need to be dynamic. In software engineering, “dynamic” is a term we use to define something that is ever-changing. Folks in Financial Services understand this concept better than anybody. That’s because your branding, regulatory guidelines, and financial reporting data are in a constant state of flux.
