Diligence |

Use our Software Diligence service to evaluate or audit your company's software or the software you wish to invest in.

Software Diligence

It is an essential process in evaluating specific software during mergers and acquisitions (M&A), significant investments, and IPOs. This process focuses exclusively on a particular software, rather than encompassing all the company’s software.

Base2 has its own methodology for executing the Software Diligence process, based on over 19 years of software quality expertise and complemented by the knowledge of the company's software architects and partner consultants.

Our team of specialists is prepared to conduct a detailed analysis of your software to evaluate if it was developed with the best market practices.

Identification of Risks, Vulnerabilities, and Improvements

Helps detect security vulnerabilities, compliance failures, and other software-related risks, allowing these issues to be addressed before they cause disruptions, while also identifying opportunities for enhancement.

Assessment of Quality and Compliance

Verifies whether the software meets expected quality standards and complies with applicable regulations and norms, crucial for the company's credibility and to avoid fines or legal penalties.

Risk Awareness

Provides a detailed understanding of the risks associated with the software, enabling proactive and informed mitigation of potential issues.

Long-term Cost Reduction

Identifies issues during analysis, saving costs in the long run by avoiding additional expenses and problems for end-users post-launch.


Ensures that the software was developed following best practices, minimizing vulnerabilities and enhancing protection against threats.
