How It All Started
Helping has been the force propelling our founder, Steve Nunn. Throughout his career, his skills and ability to confidently and humbly share his expertise, have earned him advancement.
As an employee of businesses that acquired sufficiently to become a global company, he recognized the value of properly integrated acquisitions, and volunteered to solve their integration issues.
From the onset, Steve saw the need for companies to pay close attention to their human capital and historical knowledge base by identifying and promoting personnel invested in the advancement of the companies’ goals.
By the time he had done 25 integrations, he could see the industry needed something new. He saw that small acquisitions had a big need for assistance.
The Post-Merger Integration (PMI) industry has a wealth of experience in large integrations. The market offered
- More complexity than small and mid-size integrations required
- Higher consultant costs needed to manage the complex integrations
We could see that the big value integrations were getting the attention from the PMI industry, as they generated the most revenue for consultants. The occasional and first-time acquirers were severely under-served by the consultant market.
Not surprisingly, you cannot successfully integrate smaller acquisitions using a large-business approach, as they behave, perform and respond to business situations differently to large businesses; their integrations are not only less complex, but also different to large integrations.
Steve never lost his passion for helping and solving, so he set out to specifically help the acquirers of small and mid-size businesses.
A New Way Of Solving Old Problems
Steve went back to first principles and created a simple way to integrate acquired small and mid-size acquisitions. He developed the Small business Simple Integration Method™ (SSIM™)
- Focus upon the integration needs of small and mid-size businesses
- Provide a logical step process
- Identify clear roles and responsibilities
- Communicate with easy-to-understand, unambiguous language
The SSIM™ solution is centered upon online training. For many companies, this is all the guidance and templates they may need to integrate an acquired small or mid-size business.
… and if a client has some difficulties, expertise is available to help, either remotely or on-site.
Empower and support acquirers to successfully integrate their acquisitions with size-appropriate process and engagement
We [were] dealing with a big integration project between a China and a Europe based company.
A great experience... [the] contribution to our email migration project is highly appreciated, excellent communication and coordination skills are highly praised.
Definitely Steve and his company will be strongly recommended to our partners. I would say that if we have any chance doing the project based in USA and Europe, they will be on the preferred vendor list for sure.
Really appreciate your dedication, professionalism, hard work and holistic thinking.
Value Beyond the Scope
They were very responsive to my needs and gave added value beyond the scope I requested, finding gaps that we didn't realize were there. The attitude, support and professionalism were outstanding. We would have no hesitation in asking them back for future projects.
The Results are There
Intista were really helpful in strategic planning and finding solutions. We had positive results that helped the company and employees move forward. They were definitely worth the time. The results are there, and motivation is part of the process.
Made for a Better Culture
Able to assume solutions many times before problems occur and can remain collected. …also quickly made personal relationships with members of both companies and helped to integrate them by learning process and introducing counterparts. It not only made for a better culture, but a smoother run in streamlining both lines of business.
A Huge Positive Difference
Extremely organized, detail-oriented, thorough, timely, and importantly... made a huge positive difference on many occasions, helping to gain loyalty, bridge differences, and get newly acquired companies up and running
