Our clients say

We recently engaged the team at Plante Moran to assist us with our Pre and Post Acquisition Integration activities.  BioScrip had previously executed a number of acquisitions, but our Board of Directors wanted to leverage additional resources and integration expertise to accelerate the expected synergies and impact to be realized through the integration.  We engaged the team at Plante Moran and simply said - Plante Moran was an outstanding partner for us and our team.  They were pragmatic in approach, candid with feedback and ultimately both challenging and supportive to the Board of Directors, Executive Management, and Management team level.  The combination of overarching expertise in Project Management, Change Management, and Communication combined with technical expertise in finance, human resources, information technology, supply chain and operations enabled the Plante Moran team to contribute across the many dimensions of a complex and strategically critical acquisition integration.  Plante Moran demonstrated a knack to integrate the two organizations by neutralizing the dynamics of uncertainty in an integration and quickly align and focus the combined team on a common mission.   The results have surpassed prior acquisition results and our expectations.  Plante Moran has and will continue to be a strategic partner to our organization.
