During the past 13 years, the use of technology in business has gone from important to integral. Technology affects every part of operations, sales, marketing, administration, and most importantly the building of EBITDA. During these same 13 years PIP has grown from a few guys in a small office into America’s leading technology solutions company exclusively serving the Private Equity Industry.
As a result, we have developed a market-proven process to improve the Exit Value of virtually every one of our 150+ PE partner Portfolio Companies. The business process is called OFFENSE- DEFENSE Technology Planning. Like all PIP activities, OFFENSE-DEFENSE delivers documented value, and is customized to your specific needs. Here’s how it works:
FIRST, we build the OFFENSE. We identify the four specific areas of EBITDA drip, where PIP’s experience indicates PC’s spend too much on technology—90% of the time—Telecom, Software Licensing, Hardware Maintenance and Infrastructure.
SECOND, we build a strong DEFENSE. We analyze the two current areas of EBITDA risk where our experience indicates technology failure can cost huge dollars to remediate—Cybersecurity and Disaster Recovery.
The process begins with a self-administered feasibility assessment in all OFFENSIVE and DEFENSIVE categories. If those assessments suggest hard savings are available in Telecommunications, Software Licensing, Hardware Maintenance and Infrastructure Optimization and risk can be mitigated in Cybersecurity and Disaster Recovery, you make the go no-go decision to proceed with a PIP step-by-step action plan.
You also decide how much, if any of the saving generated on the OFFENSE goes directly to current EBITDA, and how much goes to the DEFENSE to protect future EBITDA. And, if all the risks and rewards are properly balanced, the entire program should increase both short and longer term EBITDA at little or no cost.
Getting started is also user-friendly and time-efficient. You simply call or email our office to receive your complimentary, no-obligation OFFENSE-DEFENSE feasibility assessment materials. We’re happy to work with you and your portfolio companies to complete them. We’ll then analyze the information, and schedule a follow-up conference call within 10 days.
Most importantly, the OFFENSE-DEFENSE Program comes with these PIP guarantees: experienced professionals will perform a high level analysis of your feasibility questionnaires at absolutely no cost. Also, all of your information will remain entirely confidential.
