Mergers, Acquisitions & Google Workspace

Do you need to move hundreds of users to Google Workspace following corporate activity?

Do you need to merge users from various domains into a main domain?

Does your project include different countries and timezones?

Every merger/acquisition is different, but the one feature all successful projects have in common is careful planning and execution.

Whether you are at ‘Day 0’ or playing catch-up, JD Stride can help! Our range of M & A transformation services range from data and licence discovery to comprehensive data migration and change management (including training and user-onboarding).

What you need to manage

There is a lot more to consider than just ‘moving emails and files’.

As the executive in charge of the move, you will need to ensure:

  • a plan with a detailed timeline is provided to senior management
  • any completion deadlines required by legal agreements are met
  • the move does not disrupt normal business activities
  • when files are moved, their various share permissions are not disturbed
  • email signatures are updated  with new details
  • email contacts and calendars are preserved
  • tailored notifications are sent to the team before, during and after the migration
  • a change management plan (incl. training sessions) is prepared and implemented

JD Stride regularly manages projects with these requirements.

Even if your circumstances are unusual, we should be able to help.

Contact us as early as possible with your project because there are no shortcuts in careful planning.

Having time to explain the problems, manage expectations and answer questions will give your management confidence the project will be successful.
