N'compass and Applied Communications merger 'a success'
The merger between Applied Communications and N'compass has been successful.
Business negotiations between Applied Communications and N'compass might have helped the firms ensure the merger between the two organisations was a success.
The Star Tribune reports the deal only occurred by chance due to a conversation between N'compass co-owner Gerry Hansen and Applied Communications president Kristi Paul within a local chapter meeting of leadership organisation Vistage International in 2010.
During this discussion, the individuals realised a combination between the two organisations would help them to cope with various recession-related issues they faced.
"We realised we had similar cultures, treated employees similarly and had a customer base that overlapped somewhat," Ms Paul was quoted by the publication as saying.
Mr Gerry had previously told Minnessota Buisness the merger will help the firm "address the needs of our clients at every level".
The two organisations now operate together under the N'Compass brand, offering services such as hardware and software integration, as well as strategic consulting.
