About a Bump-less Operations Transfer and Startup of a Product Line Acquisition…

“I originally brought Lighthouse in to Instrument Sales and Service to be our IT Department.  I’d worked with Lighthouse as their customer in 2 prior engagements.    As our IT Department they performed extremely well, but I had no real idea of the capabilities, depth and horsepower of their organization until we were challenged with the acquisition and integration of a product line from another firm.  Lighthouse was able to surgically extract the acquired product line and its support systems from the parent company, integrate them into our operations across town and, most amazingly they executed this over a single weekend.  The old company shipped their last orders on Friday afternoon, and we started taking orders and shipping product from its new home on Monday morning.

It was three days of work around the clock, but they got it done.  Lighthouse is so much more than an IT company.”

Dan Hill, Consultant – Operations

Process and Systems Optimization …

“The team at Lighthouse exhibited all the characteristics that we wanted from a system and process optimization firm. They analyzed and recommended the best course of action for achieving our business goals and didn’t get distracted and consumed by IT technology. In the 7 years we worked with them, they guarded our assets and expenditures as closely as if they were their own – and made clear and sound recommendations, executing them efficiently and cost-effectively.”

Brett Sharenow | Founder & Principal  Broadscope Consulting

M&A Integration Services…

“We were a client of Lighthouse before our acquisition. So, knowing that acquisition was our eventual plan, they prepared us for a public company acquisition by making our systems Sarbanes-Oxley coherent. They understood the SOX controls requirements well, and as a result our systems were much easier to integrate when we were ultimately acquired by a public company. The integration work was much more straight forward and faster, with a lot fewer “bumps”, than it would have been otherwise.  In fact, SunEdison, our acquirer was so impressed by their M&A integration management success that, post-merger, they engaged Lighthouse to be their IT department for all five of their West Coast sites. ”

 M&A Integration Services…

 “It was the greatest luck to be introduced to Peter Adams and Lighthouse just at the time we were in the maelstrom of a major acquisition effort. They brought incredible insight, skill, experience and rigor to the M&A Integration Planning effort. Their process and systems analysis was expected, but the Lighthouse approach encompasses so much more. They assess and analyze the critical, yet sometimes overlooked, aspects of integration, namely, the culture mix and the people skills. And, during the whole project they keep the original business objective of the integration as the north star of all their efforts. I would re-engage them in a heartbeat, should another acquisition program come by.” 

 Janet Bressler, former CAO at Embassy Management
