Mergers & Acquisitions

Merging Systems Together for the Road Ahead

When one company acquires or merges with another, a systems minefield can ensue. Many businesses simply do not have the in-house IT expertise to bring both businesses’ systems together. Without expert help, the management and merging of duplicate IT systems and communications platforms, compounded by distance, can be challenging.

Our Service

Our consultants bring a structured approach to the situation. They will audit your existing systems and identify areas for rationalisation and standardisation. Together we develop an IT strategy for you based around your existing infrastructure, your business plan and budget. Our team will:

  • Audit your current IT systems and infrastructure

  • Evaluate and identify opportunities for improvement

  • Develop an IT roadmap and migration plan tailored to your needs

  • Define the transition timeline and put a project plan in place

  • Deliver the right IT infrastructure for the long-term

We believe that providing the right systems and tools for a business to succeed is only half of the equation. Your staff are equally vital to your success. We provide them with training and on-going support so that they feel comfortable with any new systems and processes. We want to provide you with as seamless a transition as possible to deliver growth and business continuity to your ‘new’ company.

A Step-by-Step Approach

We tackle mergers and acquisitions with a detailed project plan and check points along the way. This methodology is designed to make sure that your new company starts strong from day one. This planned, step-by-step approach gives us the opportunity to review and improve your systems.

Mindful of your company objectives and culture, we work with you to assess:

  • Where you can make cost savings

  • How you can integrate business processes

  • Where you can standardise systems

  • What reporting you need

The Benefits

Your business will benefit from a unified platform from which to build:

  • A more unified corporate culture
  • A better client experience
  • Improved staff collaboration and communication
  • Company productivity and growth

We Partner With the Best

The day to day running of the business has been transformed. When we trialled Office 365, our engineers offered to pay for it personally if we had chosen not to have it! They liked accessing their diaries, emails, and files from anywhere at any time from not only their work laptops, but iPhones and even their home computers too – this helped with the smooth running of the business and helped them manage their own time and customers more efficiently.

Our new IT and hosted phone systems are by far quicker, smoother and more reliable than they were
previously. Far less frustration and downtime meaning increased productivity.

lrm researched the market literally top to bottom to find a suitable telecommunications partner to handhold us through a massive voice and data rationalisation and implementation project.  Communications Solutions UK has very effectively delivered a market-leading solution within budget. This has linked our London and Cape Town offices along with remote team members in the UK and France, transforming our communications. Communications Solutions UK delivered on all its promises in product sourcing, installation, implementation and training. The resulting high level of team engagement and positivity and the real business benefits have exceeded our expectations.

Henry, London Residential Management (lrm)

Before I discovered CSUK, I was reluctant to upgrade my communications because I thought it would be costly and complicated. In fact, the team at CSUK made the whole process simple. They organised my IT, email and phone communications providing competitively-priced, high quality systems that have made my life much easier. This in turn has improved my professional profile as my clients can see that I am now using enterprise level tools.  It was all so simple, just like the Jabra Evolve 65 headset, that I now use with my PC softphone and mobile.  The headset was easy to install and gives me greater clarity of sound, as well as mobility so that I can move around more freely when I am training.

Jackie, Digital Business Communication (DBC)

We originally found Communications Solutions UK (CSUK) through WEConnect, a partner that we use for engaging with diverse suppliers. CSUK have been able to support us in a number of areas, both tactical and strategic. In this project, it was their expertise and abilities around the acoustic environment that have proven especially important to us.

CSUK identified problem areas in the building based on a scientific approach that involved measurement and calculation. With these findings, they designed a solution to achieve the right acoustic performance levels that met both our requirements and budget.

Matt, Enterprise Rent-A-Car

The cost savings that Communications Solutions UK have secured for our business have been important, but equally I value their friendly and helpful service. Over the years I have always been able to rely on a prompt response to my enquiries and working with their team is always a pleasant experience.

Payal, Enterprise Rent-A-Car

CSUK were able to offer us fantastic impartial advice about all the products. The expertise they offered us far outweighed the value that any of the other organisations we were looking at could give us.

Leigh, Sovereign Housing

You and your company have been, and continue to be, excellent providers of customer service.

Reasonable Adjustments Manager, Highways England

I just wanted to let you how things were going with the headset you recommended. I have been using it for the last 5 days and it is perfect. Very lightweight and the ear piece is nice and small. It is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much for your help, it is much appreciated.
