How we help solve your challenges

Optimising your IT structure

Optimising your IT structure

When bringing businesses together you need expert insight. We audit your infrastructure and prepare the ideal strategy to optimise your technology and contracts. Working our contacts, we negotiate your best deals and simplify the integration process. 

Enabling your divestment

Enabling your divestment

We take the technological complexity out of divestment, removing admin headaches and reducing costs. Our shared infrastructure lets you easily separate divested business from parent company. We can split companies into separate billing entities, while maintaining service levels and knowledge. 

Increasing your EBITDA

Increasing your EBITDA

Our expert teams work together to leverage your economies of scale, streamline efficiencies and minimise overheads. In contrast to most competitors, we offer Capex over Opex costs where appropriate, and use best fit suppliers for each site if necessary. Whatever it takes to boost your EBITDA.   

Scaling at pace

Scaling at pace brings a unique set of pain points, but we make sure powerful connectivity isn’t one of them. We build bespoke partnerships with IT leaders in ambitious private-equity backed businesses, zeroing in on crucial KPIs to help you hit the toughest targets.

From day one, we put a whole team of technical experts at your disposal, rapidly and pragmatically aligning systems across sites, solving operational problems and managing complex contracts with multiple suppliers. 

As a result, standardisation happens quickly and cost effectively, without the overheads or commitment of using internal resource. New acquisitions become a profitable part of the family faster – and your own teams stay focused on building a strong, united business.

We’ll keep pace with your KPIs as that business matures, rationalising your IT infrastructure to meet your growth targets. Cherry picking the best providers and leveraging economies of scale, we’ll improve performance, reduce Opex and help pave the way for a productive, profitable future.

Preparing for sale and supporting IT handover

With a sale on the horizon, we rationalise and resize your network to increase your EBITDA. We leverage economies of scale and reduce our management overheads as complexities and bespoke requests diminish. Our expertise is dedicated to helping you achieve higher exit values.

IT can often be a complex sticking point during the sale of a business. We use industry leading tech with standard set-up and full documentation to ensure an easy handover. With no need for incoming buyers to carry out a telecoms audit, there’s no grounds for reducing your exit price or multiplier.
