Improving Sales Operations and Internal Communications
When a manufacturer in the musical instrument industry needed solutions to constant disruptions to sales operations and internal communications, Sparkhound got to work. Our IT modernization team helped the client ensure PCI compliance to improve the protection of sensitive customer information. Sparkhound also migrated user accounts, emails, computers, and servers into a unified system, delivering new levels of efficiency and interconnectivity. In addition, we developed a regular software update cadence to maximize security.
These changes resulted in zero messaging service downtime over the course of a five-year period. The client’s Sales and Marketing operations also saw no disruptions following Microsoft tech stack improvements. Following software and hardware migration, the client also benefited from greater control over IT operations under a unified system.
Streamlining Mergers and Acquisitions Migrations
A client in the insurance brokerage sector faced challenges related to rapid growth and expansion via acquisition. Several profit centers were being added to this organization each month. And the sheer number of new personnel being onboarded to the client’s Microsoft 365 environment posed a real challenge in terms of organization and time efficiency.
Sparkhound worked with leadership, acquisition, and IT teams to facilitate and hasten the migration process. This included the creation of a pricing calculator for the mergers and acquisitions team for precise budgeting and forecasting. The client also benefited from accurate timing and pricing for the Microsoft 365 migrations. Additionally, our teams developed a plan covering the entire process, from initial needs assessments to migration completion.
These solutions increased migration by five times the original speed. The strain that had been placed on the client’s internal help desk function was also reduced. Ultimately, by reducing time spent on tasks related to migration, the client was then able to fully focus on business applications and processes.

The M&A process can be tumultuous. But with the right support, businesses can navigate this transition with minimal disruptions. Sparkhound can evaluate the technological and strategic needs of each organization to deliver solutions for a smoother process. This includes migrating the incoming company’s workloads toward the purchasing company’s Microsoft 365 tenant, reducing downtime, and organizing work structures to improve efficiency.
Our process begins with a deep and thorough discovery of source and destination environments. This enables our team to search for any migration obstacles or critical areas that will need to be addressed before data can be moved. The next step is planning. Our consultants rely on previous migration experience and best practices to discuss options and recommendations for a streamlined transition.
We also place a heavy focus on end-user communication and preparation, helping clients develop internal marketing and documents on what’s to be expected, ensuring users are prepared and reducing the workload on the service desk. Once plans are created, all underlying/supporting infrastructure is deployed and the staging process begins. After staging is complete, the processes are ready to go.
How Clients Benefit From Our M&A Services
- Risk reduction and standardization, especially in the incoming company’s adoption of controls, tools, systems, and standards of the purchasing company.
- Cost savings through the consolidation of systems management/support and software costs.
- Productivity enhancements via consolidation of directories and collaboration systems.
