The challenge in Merger and Acquisition

Integrate business processes and Intellectual Property 

In recent years, we have helped many companies integrate acquired business units. The drive for international expansion regularly leads to acquisitions of companies. This is followed by complex integration processes under high time pressure. The acquired entity often also brings in new intellectual property (IP), or specific new business processes. It is crucial that the IT partner has experience with this and can properly assess whether it fits into the existing architecture. 

The solution in Merger and Acquisition

At McCoy, a specialized M&A team is at your service. They know the relevant SAP solutions inside and out. And even better: they developed their own approach with best practices on top. As a result, you don't have to reinvent the wheel in M&As or divestments. Think of smart tools to extract or integrate data from existing systems. Or a managed platform in which you record everything. This gives control and makes audit trails available.

Real-world success examples

We are dyed-in-the-wool in SAP projects revolving around Merger, Acquisitions & Divestments. For example, we worked side by side with companies such as ASML, Signify, Philips, NXP, Marel, IDL and others on major programs. This shows again and again that an IT partner for successful business integration must meet a number of requirements:

  • A simple, sound approach that focuses on people, process and platform in just the right proportions 

  • In-depth SAP expertise and knowledge of business processes

  • Knowledge of the manufacturing industry 

  • Sense of culture and the right political sensitivity
