The Problem

A $700M top 25 U.S. CPA firm urgently sought an integration and deployment team to sustain its aggressive growth strategy of acquiring 8-10 accounting firms per year. Transitioning to a shared services model, consolidating global offices and adhering to location-based requirements were critical objectives. The scope of work included IT service management process improvements, large-scale hardware deployments, continued deskside support and a smooth transition of the acquired firms into the client’s Microsoft Azure cloud environment. 

The Solution

Vaco quickly engaged with the client and established a centralized team of consultants at the firm’s headquarters to manage laptop setups across the East Coast. Additionally, we led hardware deployments and re-location efforts for the firm’s New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, North Carolina and Florida offices. Over 50 of our consultants successfully supported seven of the firm’s acquisitions in one year and ensured continuous exemplary customer service to support the integration of its acquired entities. 

Our Impact

Establishing a partnership rooted in trust, Vaco collaborated with the client to improve the overall quality of service for its acquisitions throughout the integration process. This resulted in increased employee retention and work efficiency, enabling unparalleled service to their client base. Key outcomes included:

  • 15% increase in customer satisfaction scores via improved technical assistance processes for employees. 
  • 20% decrease in support tickets via implementing a comprehensive knowledge base that improved self-service capabilities, consolidated documentation and accelerated resolution timelines. 
  • 100% reduction in lost devices (from 20-40 per year to zero) during the engagement by standardizing hardware offerings, scheduling refresh plans, implementing asset barcoding and utilizing FedEx API-based shipment tracking.
