VOSS for Mergers and Acquisitions

When planning for a merger or acquisition,
prioritize your collaboration strategy

Home » Offerings » Solutions » VOSS for Mergers and Acquisitions

When it comes to  mergers and acquisitions, having an effective collaboration strategy will improve employee integration and retention, and significantly support your revenue and cost synergy targets.

For organizations to achieve a successful merger or acquisition, a collaboration automation and integration strategy must be at the top of the ‘to do’ list. If staff from both sides of the organization  are not quickly given the tools they need to interconnect, collaborate, and start being productive together,  the impact will be damaging. Here are some of the challenges VOSS can help with: 

  • During M&A activity, how to ensure that both sides of the organization have access to the collaboration tools they need to remain productive?
  • Have you got a collaboration integration strategy plan in place?
  • How will you ensure a positive user experience throughout the M&A process? 
  • How will you achieve cost synergies through UC technology rationalization and integration? 
  • Can you analyze the usage, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and adoption rates of your collaboration estate?

Inevitably, with any merger or acquisition, the new company will have multiple and overlapping tools that are used by various parts of the business. In order to maintain productivity, it’s vital that the post merger integration strategy respects the importance of some tools to certain departments, and manages any technology transition or consolidation in a sensitive and thoughtful way, with decisions being made based on data gathered from the business.

Many M&A deals are justified based on revenue synergies. In Part 2, we look at how collaboration automation and integration is crucial to achieving the planned synergies. In particular, we investigate the need for the merging companies to have the same growth and revenue objectives, and the impact on the business if they do not.
