Build vs Buy

Move from DIY to an all-in-all seamless platform. See why customers are choosing to buy Alterest instead of building a solution in-house or running their desk on spreadsheets.

Key Advantages of buying Alterest

Retain and hone competitive edge

Retain and hone competitive edge

  • Retain and improve competitive edge in originating deals and mainting high-performing portfolios, not in software development.
  • You do not need custom software to build on your competencies even in private debt or illiquid asset classes. Alterest’s configuration layer enables customisation without compromises.
  • Build your team and focus on revenue generating activities.
Leverage market best-practices

Leverage market best-practices

  • Alterest embodies feedback and best practices from the market to provide the perfect solution.
  • Our product is constantly evolving and improving, at a much faster pace than you can build in-house.
  • Through active dialogue with clients, Alterest constantly provides ideas and product use-cases to ensure you are deriving the best possible value.
Reduce operating costs

Higher savings & Reduced operating costs

  • Spend only a fraction of the cost it would take to build anything remotely close in-house.
  • Do not spend on raw infrastructure that is not essential for your core business. Leverage Alterest’s all-in-all solution.
  • Optimise cost of ownership, and do not incur unwanted expenses.

Disadvantages of building

Significant risk

Significant risk

  • Most internal IT projects fail when they are not part of the core business.
  • Internal builds suffer from high risk of non-realisation leaving you stuck with archaic tools such as spreadsheets.
  • Key persons risk is huge. In-house software is not built with the same rigour as external.
Lost opportunities

Lost opportunities

  • Focusing on building in-house can easily distract you from your core business.
  • In-house systems that “sort of work” do not let you maximise on opportunities.
  • Key staff could be finding better investment opportunities instead of doing mundane tasks.
High costs

High costs

  • Sub-optimal technology can cost you more money usually driven by errors and bad data.
  • Internal teams don’t have competitive pressure to provide the best priced or a constantly-evolving solution.
  • Failure to identify problems in portfolios without streamlined management diminishes returns.
