IT Mergers & Acquisitions
Scenario:  You have found a company to acquire and have carried out the due-diligence about the company’s order book, the financials and the employees. But have you factored the company's IT systems into the process?

Surprisingly, this is one of the most common things overlooked during a merger or acquisition.

Here at Merger IT we pride ourselves on providing organisations with a smooth transition when bringing companies IT systems together. 

By using tried and tested processes and procedures, we have the necessary skills, experience and knowledge that you will be hard pushed to get elsewhere.

We will use industry proven toolsets and customised PowerShell Scripts to meet business requirements.

We are able to offer you Project management skills, technical knowledge and communications experts to guide you through the process. Our key objective is to ensure that as a business you are in control at all times during the process and you, and your teams and employees, are fully aware about changes being implemented.

Our focus is the user experience.  If the user experience is positive, your company works in a positive mode doing what it does best, completing business.

Are you expecting to Divest parts of the organisation as well - even during the M&A?  Not a problem and we can support you through this process too.​
We provide specialist, independent, expert advice.

We can support your business and implementation to merge or divest two or more IT infrastructures with maximum efficiency and minimum disruption to the workflow.

Expedite your migration with our PowerShell Scripts Tool Kits
Our PowerShell scripts are designed to help you save time and money.

The scripts have been tailored to complete initial due-diligence work and follow-on migration activities.
Due-Diligence
Due-diligence is critical before any migration activities start. 

There are various technical challenges to ensure migrations are as smooth as possible as well as the people element of the changes being implemented.

This is why the due diligence stage should not be underestimated.

Our reporting will give you the ‘lay of the land’ and enable you to make informed decisions about the work needed to bring organisations together after a merger or acquisition. 

To complete a successful migration you need to fully understand the scale of the challenge including the scope of who you are migrating, who is using each computer giving real-time logon information, where are the computers operating, are the technologies compatible, are there any network overlaps. Our scripts can provide you with this information.

Before any changes are carried out it is important to ensure that Exchange Active Directory, which is the back bone of your organisation, is going to remain stable and not be impacted by the planned changes.

Book half a day due-diligence consultation with Merger IT and we be able to talk to you about the work that needs to be undertaken and the best ways to achieve your goals.

We are happy to come to your offices to run one of our scripts to show you the information that can be extracted from your existing systems. This information can continue to be used to extract up-to-date IT information about your organisation.

Project managers who we have worked with in the past,  continue to use these reports on a daily basis.  Without the inforamation they could not deliver the project !

We know you won’t be disappointed !
We can help you to mitigate potential risk by providing a comprehensive assessment of your existing IT infrastructure.

This service allows your organisation to fully understand if IT systems are an asset or a liability, whether they are in your existing organisation or the company you are looking to merge with or acquire.

Knowing the current state of play allows companies to make informed choice and to implement an action plan that best meets your needs.

We can help you through every step of this process and provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience to make the process as easy as possible.
Is there an IT problem in your organisation that no one has been able to fix, or have the time to focus on?  

Here at Merger IT we can help you to understand the IT technical challenges facing your organisation either as a result of a merger or acquisition.

We will look at the problem as a whole, taking the time to understand what the problem is and then offering solutions that are the best fit for your organisation. 

We strongly believe that our work can only be successful by working with you and your teams, to fully understand what they are seeing and the business impact. 

We will work through the complexity in a diligent and careful fashion to ensure we get it right. 

We have all seen it before - when problems get too hard to resolve or cost the company too much money they are put into the 'too hard bin'. This doesn’t need to be the case.

We relish new challenges.  Often, we are called into organisations that need experts to come in, quickly get up to speed and understand the problems facing an organisation, undertake the necessary due-diligence and then offer the solution and technical skills, knowledge and assurance that the issues can be resolved.

We pride ourselves on being experts in our field and being able to offer clients solutions to their complex IT issues and being able to guide them through the necessary IT changes resulting from mergers and acquisitions.

An example of how we have helped one of our clients who was experiencing challenges with their IT infrastructure…..

A large High Street retailer brought in 4 consultancies to help them fully understand and solve their IT issues. All of the consultancies spent over 2 weeks each trying to fix the problems the organisation was facing. 

Merger IT did it in 3 days!  We went in, carried out the necessary due-diligence, understood the problems and then offered solutions nd fixes that were the best fit for the organisation.

We cannot promise this every time, but that is an example of what we are capable of.
