Post-merger integration (PMI)

Establish secure communications channels between integration teams with Intralinks. During M&A diligence and PMI, large, highly sensitive, and extremely confidential datasets are transferred and reviewed by multiple parties, so the chances of data “leakage” – intentional or unintentional – can be fairly high. Employing proper tools that can track all user activity, remote-wipe document access, and establish restrictive parameters around data activity are essential when dealing with M&A-related disclosures.
