The good, the bad and

Increase in M&A activity as a source of business growth.

There are many reasons for a business to decide on M&A as a growth strategy. Top reasons include:

  1. Expand customer base
  2. Diversify products and geographical reach
  3. Talent acquisition

The underlining reason is to grow faster and become more competitive. However, faster doesn’t mean easier. As you try to accelerate return on investment with fast integration, you can run into challenges that, if handled incorrectly, can be devastating for the business.


Visualize Each Organization

Understanding each organization individually is difficult as they often use incompatible systems to store information, preventing smooth collaboration, causing delays and inconsistencies.

Loss of Key Talent

During M&A activity, uncertainty about job security, chain of command and org structure can cause the best and brightest from each organization to leave before the M&A is complete.

Data Conversion and Reporting

Due to incompatibility between tools, converting data from disparate systems and reporting tools is difficult and prone to mistakes.


Modelling and Visualization

Improve M&A integration success with modeling and visualization of data across multiple organizational structures all within one tool.

Integrate Data

Seamlessly combine organizational data from multiple HCM solutions to identify and retain your key talent. Create temporary org charts during transition to keep clear management structure throughout.
