NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that it has introduced an innovative mobile solution that transforms the pitch book iteration process into a virtual reality for the deal making community. Thomson Reuters Pitchboard® is designed to provide investment banking teams with the document management, revision and organization interface needed between the desktop and the iPad to help them increase efficiency whilst navigating the pitch book iteration process.
Thomson Reuters Pitchboard enables the seamless delivery and return of pitch book iterations and edits between colleagues working on desktops in the office and iPad® users reviewing and marking up documents whilst they are on the road. In addition, desktop users can add related content to the document for view on the iPad including news, research and company information to ensure that senior bankers are always prepared for meetings and calls. Pitchboard works seamlessly with Thomson ONE, Thomson Reuters best in class desktop solution for the deal making community and also complements Thomson Reuters Advanced Analytics, a suite of presentation and analytical tools, built into Microsoft Office that was launched earlier this year for junior bankers.
"Across the globe, deal volume for 2012 has seen double-digit declines from that of 2011, requiring investment bankers to be more creative in maintaining ever higher levels of efficiency and productivity," said Ellen Pinschmidt, global head of Banking and Research at Thomson Reuters. "Pitchboard is the first of its kind in the industry and adds a much needed new technological dimension to the pitch book iteration process by providing the tools necessary to empower junior and senior investment bankers to effectively manage every step of their workflow resulting in increased productivity."
