Gridstone's content is made
available to you through a browser-based,
Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. For
you to be able to effectively work with
the platform's rich and unique content we
had to design a new kind of user interface
with some very interesting features . Some
of these features are described below.
Gridstone lays out its numeric data in a
familiar spreadsheet-like interface that
we call The Grid. Navigating down Parameters
or across Financial Periods is smooth and
From the Grid you can click on the contents
of a cell and get more details (e.g. evolution
of Guidance over time) or Management Commentary
on that number.
Gridstone allows you to create your own
Worksheets. You can pull a set of Parameters
(e.g. Revenue breakout by product) into
a Worksheet and save it.
Worksheets can be emailed to colleagues
(your Portfolio Manager or CFO) inside or
outside your firm. The recipient gets a
link which allows them to view the Worksheet
on the GSR platform, even if they are not
You can compare a company on any Parameter
within a set of comparable companies. The
Comps feature is very flexible, allowing
you to compare any set of companies on any
Parameter. Comps Sheets, like Worksheets
can be saved and shared.
Gridstone offers flexible charting options
including Guidance v. Actuals charts which
can be fired directly from the Parameter
on the Grid. Additionally, there is a Chart
Builder for advanced charting.
