IT Due Diligence Report!

Nobody would buy a house without an inspection.  As part of your home buying "due diligence," you will have a professional inspect for termites, dry rot, plumbing and other problems.  The home inspector provides a report of their findings.  As a buyer, you will use this report before making your final buying decision.

Too often, when buying a mid-sized business, buyers ignore the "termites," "dry-rot," and "plumbing problems" in the organization's technology.  Purchasing a company without an IT Due Diligence Report is like buying a house without a termite inspection.  (You might get lucky?... but probably not.)

What we include in our IT Due Diligence Reports

  • A Technology Assessment (The Good, Bad and what system(s) are likely to fail) 
  • A Team assessment (Is the IT team improving productivity or IT hostage takers?)
  • How to fix the problems (projects, tweaks, and changes to grow and mitigate risk.)
  • Missed opportunities (Ideas to increase earnings by tweaking the technology!)
  • A List of Changes (Business and technical changes that support your end goals.)
  • Estimated costs (Cost & material projections to on-board to the new organization.)

In our IT due diligence reports, we include risk levels, costs, and a checklist of quick projects.  Technology magnifies business efficiencies and inefficiencies.  What the IT Due Diligence report means to you, is a series of recommendations that will build efficiencies and reduce inefficiencies.  In the report you find the outline for a plan that will improve EBITDA, mitigate business risk and ultimately, show your investors a much higher return on this investment.

IT Due Diligence Checklist

You may ask, why we aren't downloading an IT Due Diligence or M&A due diligence Checklist like everyone else?   

Not long ago, someone I didn’t know from New York, sent me a very friendly but unsolicited phone text to advertise and sell me their services.  I explained that I buy from local businesses with whom I already have a relationship.  I also requested that the sender  please stop sending these texts.  Afterward, I got a series of phone texts filled with derogatory four-letter words.  

I share this to emphasize that, until we meet each other in person we don't know your business, you don’t know me (nor I you).  I could be that person with a friendly text message, but behind the text, I may care more about my ego than I do about you.  So instead of a friendly “free download,” let’s talk first and get to know each other.  If we think there is something there, we can decide on next steps.

IT Due Diligence Services

Finally, let’s face it; most Mid-market business buyers aren't qualified to do their own termite inspection or their own IT due diligence.  Even with a free IT Due Diligence checklist, it’s just not enough.  Buying a business without an IT Due Diligence Report, is like buying a home without a termite inspection.  After the purchase, the buyer ends up paying (literally) in lost productivity and unmitigated business risks.  If you are planning to buy a business today, in a year or sometime in the next five years, we are here for the long term relationship.  Let’s begin build our relationship today by developing a strong foundation.
