Avoid post-M&A headaches and costs from bad tech integrations
The last thing you need after closing a merger or acquisition is to discover hidden IT issues or integration hurdles that result in more expenses and delays in productivity. Integrated IT due diligence is an essential step in any M&A deal to ensure that both your IT systems, and those of the target company, are well positioned to thrive under new operational leadership or as part of a merged tech stack.
The information technology due diligence experts at Northwest Partners have 25 years of experience helping clients identify and mitigate problematic IT systems that can derail M&A deals. We’re your trusted partner in IT due diligence and help prevent unforeseen costs and surprises.
Northwest Partners are experts in integrated IT due diligence, helping companies across the United States identify and mitigate dysfunctional or incompatible IT systems that add hidden costs and surprises to M&A deals.
Here’s how we do it:
Review your IT infrastructure. We start by diving deeplyinto your company’s IT infrastructure, identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas of improvement. In doing so, we can identify risks, opportunities, and requirements associated with integrating the target company’s IT infrastructure.
Review the target company’s IT infrastructure. From there, we turn the same eye to the target company’s IT infrastructure, reviewing their network, hosting, security and data management practices, software licensing, maintenance and development processes, and workforce. This gives us a thorough understanding of how the target IT system works, and how well (or poorly) the integration process might go.
Audit report and recommendations.Once our analysis is complete, we will package our findings and recommendations into a formal document to help you make a thorough and informed decision about your integration process. Our team is here to help with the process, if needed.
Merging two IT systems is a high-stakes venture. Lots can go wrong, and it can be difficult to account for all potential issues. The team at Northwest Partners is here to give you peace of mind as you navigate the M&A process.
