Mergers & Acquisitions

When companies unite, sorting out which assets to keep and how to integrate or migrate can prove difficult, to say the least. This is why Red Bigfoot is pleased to offer IT assistance with mergers and acquisitions. It all starts with an intensive planning process.

Mergers and acquisitions result in a glut of IT assets, systems, and networks that have to be combined, trimmed, integrated, and upgraded to create a new, unified infrastructure that works for everyone involved. Naturally, this can prove to be a complex and time-consuming process without professional guidance and strategy.

When you partner with Red Bigfoot, planning and strategy are only the first steps, but arguably the most important. It’s critical to understand current infrastructure, assets, staffing, and capabilities, as well as needs and challenges moving forward. From there, we’ll collaborate with leadership to create a plan for integration, migration, divestitures, separations, and all the steps needed to help you transition to new environments and reach your goals of unified IT systems.

We’re also happy to assist with divestitures and separations, which feature their own particular set of challenges. For example, what if redundant software licenses exist? How do you go about canceling contracts without losing money? What if one party is contractually bound through IT agreements that do not extend to the other party?

Because modern business is so complex, it’s no surprise that merging two companies can entail significant complications. When it comes to IT, you need a strategy that takes the guesswork out of integration, migration, and divestiture. You need a smooth transition so that two companies can become one. Red Bigfoot has the expertise to see you through mergers and acquisitions with minimal downtime and the positive outcomes you expect.
