Post merger integration

Sally were merging a smaller subsidiary (Salon Success) organisation into Sally Beauty Europe. The systems and processes hadn’t been integrated, nor the physical relocation. The objective was to leverage shared resources and services to drive cost savings and efficiencies. Operating in two different entities meant a lot of reconciliation was needed every month. Nine Feet Tall were brought in to consolidate the change.

Programme Planning

Nine Feet Tall set up and managed the merger programme. This included governance, control and management of budgets, resources, risk management and overall programme delivery.Nine Feet Tall managed third party suppliers to co-ordinate the office space and design. Nine Feet Tall also delivered Microsoft Dynamix ERP Integration, the office relocation and the legal entity consolidation including HR & Payroll. Nine Feet Tall also oversaw the distribution centre relocation. Overheads were significantly cut and efficiency gains successfully made.
