Post-merger integration takes place during the integration phase when strategies developed in advance are implemented as rapidly as possible to achieve the desired synergies.
- Employee participation
The most competent employees are involved in the integration process to ensure motivation.
- Customer benefits
Customers‘ responses to changes in a company are mixed. Hence, additional benefits for the customer resulting of the purchase/sale must be communicated clearly.
- Standardisation of accounting procedures
Accounting procedures must be standardised as quickly as possible; the company’s finance tools have to be aligned.
- Control/management mechanisms
Comprehensive control and management mechanisms are implemented to monitor the integration process and the correct cooperation between the systems already transferred.
