Consulting firm increases NetSuite capacity with the support of the Trajectory team

Since 2002, consulting firm West Monroe Partners has been assisting clients in generating revenue, reducing costs, and achieving operational business targets. Having built a reputation for their ability to create solutions that address even the most difficult companies and technological challenges, the company has grown to a team of 950 professionals spanning 10 offices. They supports clients across the M&A transaction lifecycle from strategy, analysis, and planning through integration and optimization. One key area for integrating or separating these businesses is establishing accounting

Strategy

“As the leader of our divestiture practice, detangling data and establishing a standalone technology platform with ERP system at its foundation is paramount. Partnering with Trajectory as one of our CORE (Carve-out Readiness & Execution) partners for additional scale for the platform has helped us execute against these condensed timeframes and exit costly transition services agreements quickly and seamlessly”

– Keith Campbell, Director, Mergers & Acquisitions
