Mergers and acquisitions are a consistent occurrence across most businesses. Successfully integrating two businesses is a goal that is achieved with varying degrees of success. An ERP application is typically at the core of any major integration activity. Consolidation of financial data is a key critical success factor but that strategy alone may not attain the synergies desired from the transaction. Careful consideration of the alignment of the overall business strategy to the people, process, and technology are the key critical success factors in order to reduce the risk of these efforts. Given the variety of business objectives of these transactions there is not a “one size fits all” ERP strategy that can be used. What are the alternatives available and how do you chose the right strategy based on your objectives?
Join this webinar to see how West Monroe Partners is helping clients navigate these decisions and execute an effective ERP strategy for a successful merger or acquisition.
