Accenture helps a major insurance provider develop and implement a merger integration plan that is enabling the company to contain risks and accelerate the integration, while keeping core business operation disruptions to a minimum.
The company is a leading loan tracking agency in the lender-placed market. It also provides mortgage and auto lender-placed protection solutions, voluntary insurance products, loss mitigation services and customized property tax solutions. It serves mortgage and auto lenders, mortgage servicers, financial institutions and homebuilders of all sizes.
The company saw an opportunity to move up in the marketplace by acquiring one of its top competitors. The merger would also provide the company with a specialist personal lines portfolio to complement its existing business lines.
Merger integration goals included:
Complete IT due diligence within eight weeks.
Complete Day One integration within four months.
Integration planning within three months, followed by a roll-out of transition plans and implementation of a strategic new IT capability.
Transition carrier conversion within 12 months of Day One integration.
Accenture acted as the company’s IT planning and merger integration collaborator, providing: strategy, due diligence, Integration Management Office (IMO) setup, Day One planning and post-merger 100-day planning/program management.
To help the company understand integration risks, Accenture performed a buyer IT due diligence assessment on a short timescale. The Accenture team also led the IMO setup and infrastructure and application activities—and also acted as a trusted advisor to the client’s integration program manager and CIO.
Accenture conducted IT due diligence and developed and implemented a merger integration plan that enabled the client to contain risks and accelerate the integration, while keeping core business operation disruptions to a minimum. The client rapidly capitalized on the success of the integration and has started to achieve synergies through consolidation of similar operations into shared services and central capabilities.
