The MPS industry has a rich history of attracting mergers and acquisitions, and it’s an enduring trend which, remarkably, shows little sign of abating. The economic downturn triggered by the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic has inevitably borne out the survival of the fittest, with thriving MPS businesses acquiring or merging with those which are struggling.
In a challenging market, consolidation offers a raft of benefits and opportunities for converging MPS companies, including:
- Strategic partnerships.
- Expansion of customer base.
- Increase in market share and revenue.
- Improvement of quality of service.
- Additional services and solutions.
- Opportunity to focus on operational efficiencies.
- Alignment of technology and solutions.
- Enhanced economies of scale.
A recurring conundrum of any successful M&A MPS strategy, however, is the integration of multiple companies – each with their own finance, CRM, and service platforms – into a single, cohesive, and consistent platform. That’s a massive amount of data to migrate, not to mention a huge change in back-office operations!
