Mergers and acquisitions are difficult at any stage, but nothing compares to the challenge of integrating people, processes and technology. Integration is critical for every merger, acquisition, divestiture or joint venture. And yet, it is the most complex part of the process.

That’s where AXIA can help. With years of real-world, hands-on experience, we leverage our proven process and best practices to enable your organization to effectively execute a merger or divestiture.

Our post-merger integration services are designed to guide your organization through every stage of the process – from due diligence, to Day 1 planning, through the First 100 Days and into integration delivery.

AXIA's Value Integration Method™

We’ve developed a signature process, the Value Integration Method™, specifically designed to streamline organizational integration:

  • Strategic Alignment: There are several ways to execute post-merger IT integration projects. Each is based on the risks, capabilities and the strategic intent of the M&A activity and IT determines the right scope, approach and organizational structure.
  • Pre-Day 1 Activities: Before any merger, acquisition, divestment or joint-venture, having a structured, fast-paced, experienced organization execute the Pre-Day 1 activities will be critical for your organization’s success.
  • Stabilize & Retain: During the first 30 to 90 days after Day 1, most organizations will focus on value retention, stabilization and potentially a few low-hanging synergies.
  • Achieve Synergies: Once the organization has stabilized, IT is often called upon to help the business achieve the benefits that drove the M&A activity. Projects typically include cost reductions, achieving new synergies, new product & services, CRM integration, supply chain integration, procurement optimization, etc.
