M&A For many manufacturers, years of M&A has led to fragmented systems, complex intercompany processes, and a lack of standardization across the close. Increased global competition, economic disruption, and evolving regulations lead to uncertainty, fluctuations in materials and transportation costs, and a workforce that must learn to work in a whole new way—whether on the shop floor or in the office.

Leading companies are shaving days off period-end, refocusing their efforts on higher value tasks, and achieving 2.67X ROI.
