Grow your Integration Team
Your People. Our Expertise
Let's have a conversation about building your integration team
Acquiring businesses is expensive. Integrating the businesses is where you get the value from your acquisition.
How does your business develop the in-house competencies to successfully integrate your acquisitions?
Businesses that do not successfully integrate acquisitions waste the opportunity of value creation. With every subsequent acquisition, the pain of not integrating becomes greater, as the burden of multiple processes, tools and operational methods prevents growth.
Intista will develop your employees into your in-house integration team.
Lower-mid and mid-size businesses are often torn: they know they need external expertise, but want to retain the skills within their teams. Take advantage of Intista expertise to train , certify, and mentor the people in your business to integrate acquisitions.
The Task Ahead
When you integrate two businesses together, you will transform both businesses into one, having to:
- Address the "Five Areas" of integration
- Accommodate the different business functions structures
- Sustaining the business revenues
- Allay the concerns of employees who are not accustomed to a lot of changes taking place
How good is your business at achieving the value from your acquisitions?

Some businesses need a hybrid solution that combines the online learning and certification with specific support. Typical reasons for this are:
- You have to climb the learning curve very quickly
- You cannot afford to the time to create your company-specific templates, and processes
- You must deliver a high level of success on your first integration
- Your business poses some complexities
- The first integration is relatively complex
- There are difficulties selecting the correct workstream leaders
What is a hybrid solution?
This is a combination of online learning and advisory services
The benefits are
- Lower cost than bringing in consultant full-time
- Focuses consultants on specific issues only
- Shortens the learning curve
Build, Don't Buy, your Integration Team
The benefits of an in-house integration team
Why Use External Help to Build an Internal Team?
External resources have gone through the learning curve of theoretical and practical aspects of integration. They bring the skills and capabilities you'll need to get off the ground. Additionally, partners provide capacity, freeing up your resources to be used elsewhere.
Internal expertise ensures business change. The people who develop integration skills will be with your organization, and can pass on the lessons learned and processes that fit your business.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Really appreciate your dedication, professionalism, hard work and holistic thinking.
