Mergers & Acquisitions Companies
Building a new database from overlapping
customer and prospect data in legacy systems
When a company acquires or merges with another company, one of the challenges is that the two prior independent organizations each have their own data systems for the same departmental functions such as sales, marketing, customer service, and accounting. If the merger companies competed in the same markets, then there will most likely be an overlap of customer and prospect records in these legacy systems.
In building a new consolidated database, the newly formed organization does not want to create duplicate records; however, they also do not want to lose valuable information.
Cluster Matching & Linking capabilities makes
data consolidation faster, more effective, and less costly
Prior to building the new databases, SingleVision can also help clean up the data issues in legacy systems that were created independently of the merger of the organizations. These data issues can be caused by multiple manual entries into different systems about the same organization, or purchasing external files that contain data about the records already in the internal systems. Data from disparate files are matched and linked using the robust Cluster Match & Link resource built in to SingleVision. Matched data records can be viewed and managed in SingleVision’s Resolver Viewer.

Quick View capabilities shortcuts the time it takes to put M&A assets into focus
SingleVision also gives managers an immediate “Quick View” that lets them understand and act on data sooner, without having to wait months for a detailed analysis of your M&A results. Areas of data overlap are identified, making it easier to assess the value of the unduplicated data coming from each legacy database.
