Execute Seamless IT Transition During Large Acquisition

A Diversified Financial Services Company (DFSC) operating in the eastern half of the United States announced plans to acquire two banking systems in the South with $7+ billion in assets and over 120 branches.

DFSC turned to MCPc with these business priorities:

  • Execute a seamless “weekend” transition of all 120 branches in multiple states without service interruption to both customers and employees

DFSC turned to MCPc with these IT priorities:

  • Utilize a deployment crew across 120 branches
  • Employ an onsite pre-conversion testing team
  • Assist in troubleshooting network issues as feet on the street in the weeks prior to conversion
  • Station an immediate response team across the state during conversion weekend
  • Support clean up post-conversion
