A landscaping company.

The Challenge

TriVista was retained by private equity investors and the leadership team of a landscaping business to provide Quality of Operations™, Information Technology Due Diligence, and cost synergy analysis relating to the possible add-on acquisition of another landscaping company.

Our Approach

Through site visits with the target company, interviews with the platform’s management team, collaboration with the client, and reviews with the legal team overseeing the deal, TriVista created three deliverables supporting the following:

  • Integration strategy and cost synergy by function/department including operations, sourcing, and SG&A
  • Operations and IT diligence

The Results

  • Identified $3.4M – $6.4M in cost synergies across personnel and non-personnel spend categories
    • $1.9M – $3.2M personnel cost synergies were identified by combining G&A functions including HR, Finance, Executives, Administration, Marketing, and Legal
    • $1.6M – $3.2M non-personnel cost synergies were identified by gaining volume discounting (on Fuel and IT Software) as well as reducing two headquarters to one
  • Evaluated labor management, utilization, and wage comparison, fleet management, and maintenance shop
  • Reviewed opportunities to reduce reliance on Excel documents
  • Developed functionality for field employees to digitally input time and remove manual process
  • Centralized master data to review transactional data between multiple systems
  • Reviewed potential CRM solutions to assist with deal pipeline
