Documentation

Bringing together two organizations with different cultures, people and IT systems is not an easy task by any means. However, mergers and acquisitions (M&As) are inevitable in the tech industry since they help companies expand their business, enter new markets, augment their portfolio and assets, and more. Proper documentation plays a critical role in simplifying the complicated nature of M&As in both the pre- and post-acquisition phases.

In this blog, we’ll explore how IT documentation can help ensure a smooth merger between two organizations.

Importance of documentation in M&A

If you are in the market to sell your MSP business, you need to understand what buyers are looking for in an MSP. The MSP industry is evolving at a rapid pace and it is no wonder that most buyers are on the lookout for mature, high-quality MSPs that are extremely efficient and process-driven. There are many factors that differentiate mature MSPs from less mature ones. One of them is documentation.

By documenting all your business processes and critical tasks, you are sending out a message that your MSP business is efficient to operate and no longer dependent on the business owner or one key individual. If you intend to exit the MSP business at some point, you must invest in a robust document management system.
