One of the greatest strengths of ValuAdder is its flexibility. You will notice that ValuAdder offers you a number of well-known business valuation and deal structuring tools. With all the tools and business valuation methods available to you, you can make the choices that best fit your particular business valuation, business sale or purchase situation.
We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the various business valuation methods in our Business Valuation Guide. Once you have selected your methods, you can set up your ValuAdder to use them in a just a few key strokes. Here is how:
- Create a new ValuAdder window by clicking on the File menu and choosing New.
- Select the valuation methods you want from the Start Tab.
- Create a Tab for each method you choose by clicking on the Create button.
You can rename your business valuation tools using the Tab menu to make your choices easy to remember. For example, if you are working on a business purchase offer and decide to use the Deal Check tool to structure your offer terms, you can rename the Tab to something like My Offer Terms.
Grouping all your tools in a separate ValuAdder window is an excellent way to organize your work. For example, you can keep all your method selections, your assumptions and valuation calculations together when valuing a specific business. And you can save all your work in one step and then restore it later by using the Save and Open commands in the ValuAdder File menu.
