Principal Investment Firm Empowers Performance Management Through Interactive OneStream Dash

Main Street Capital Case Study

We recently partnered with Main Street Capital to transform the firm’s portfolio performance management through custom, unified OneStream dashboards. Capitalizing on OneStream’s extensibility, the dashboards are dynamically integrated allowing full visibility into Main Street’s ever-growing portfolio. The resulting project removes the need for disparate excel workbooks, giving a single source of truth, enhanced analytics, automated reporting, and more!


We are thrilled to finally share this case study at the upcoming OneStream Splash Conference - hope to see you there! Until then, here is a sneak peek at what we will be covering!


Discover Main Street Capital’s OneStream Success Story…

Main Street Capital is a Houston-based principal investment firm that has helped over 200 private companies grow or transition. Prior to implementing OneStream, the firm's manual financial reporting process consisted of reviewing numerous Excel workbooks and nonstandard reporting packages. This made monitoring portfolio performance difficult and time-consuming.
