Integrate newly acquired businesses into existing systems
A large financial institution with national operations was in the process of growing their national presence by acquiring select regional banking brands. Growth by merger and acquisition is a central strategy of this important Bailiwick® customer, one which requires them to respond quickly when the timing is right. They needed an IT partner that could move quickly to integrate the newly acquired businesses into their existing IT systems, one with a proven ability to execute nimbly, respond quickly to changing deadlines and deliver services flawlessly.
Mergers and acquisitions take place in fluid,fast-paced and highly confidential circumstances. Because of our ongoing relationship with this partner, they felt confident that Bailiwick could manage the massive multi-state logistical process of standardizing equipment and integrating services across the system.
In addition to cabling, electrical and equipment installation, Bailiwick conducted site surveys and managed product procurement, as well as removed and disposed of old equipment according to the highest data security standards.
During and after a major undertaking such as this, Bailiwick conducts quarterly reviews with internal teams and clients. We talk about what we're doing right and where we can improve and then make those process improvements an integral part of future planning and deployments.
