PR: There is definitely a clear plan in place in terms of integrating all of the various workstreams across the organization and now it is just up to all of us to execute. But I don’t anticipate the work just stopping. This is a big adjustment for everyone plus both COMPAREX and SoftwareONE are complex organizations so I don’t anticipate a quick end point. We will continue to work on the integration and ensuring that we have happy people and happy customers.
JM: Adding on to the people element this will definitely be an ongoing experience. Some employees will be able to jump right in and feel at home, while others will need some coaching and guidance on how to deal with new accountabilities and differing processes. Those that can see the opportunity in advance of the challenges will always do well.
PR: I agree with the wholeheartedly and really our role is to help our employees cope with the change, see the positives, share the right information at the right time, and bridge the gap between the two companies. One of our other core values is speed but as the value states we won’t compromise on quality – this is one area where it’s best to slow down and get it right than move too fast.
JM/PR: We’re both very excited for this next chapter in SoftwareONE’s history! We are so happy and proud to be a part of this adventure.
