Emerging technologies and the pace of digital disruption are testing established business models. The war for talent has never been fiercer and regulatory requirements are ever more complex.

Your technology business must keep pace with all of this. Depending on your level of business maturity, the challenge varies. But the principles are the same: innovate, grow, deliver a fantastic client experience. CEOs need to work out how to scale and grow faster than their rivals – without compromising the DNA of the business.

In a highly liquid funding environment with high valuations on expectations of significant future growth, sustainable success requires the right execution and advice.

Challenge
iSAMS is a market-leading web-based school management information system (MIS) that had received a pre-emptive approach to sell.
Solution
We ran a confidential and competitive process with a focused selection of strategic global acquirers delivered to a tight timetable.
Results
This allowed us to drive value and find the right strategic partner for iSAMS, to accelerate the growth trajectory and expand into the state schools market in the UK, delivering a transaction from start to finish in less than 12 weeks.

It was our first experience of an acquisition and it was very important that we were given the expert guidance throughout the whole process, from the initial workshops to completion. We would highly recommend Grant Thornton to anyone looking for that complete service.
