“We used the BoatyardX team, led by Paul Quinn, for Due Diligence on two acquisitions where technology underpinned the businesses we were buying. BoatyardX went through all aspects of the teams, the technology and IP, and were able to provide a report that gave us comfort on the quality of the companies. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.”

says Broadlake COO, Brian Crowley

The Challenge

Acquiring a company can be a challenging process, none more so when the core aspect of the business being acquired centres around its technology offering. A critical input in forming an overall view of the intended target is a thorough assessment of the underlying technology supporting their product offerings. Availability of trusted expertise in these scenarios is essential in the assessment of the current state in informing the acquisition process of both risks and opportunities.

The Solution

BoatyardX light weight Technology Assessment Framework, designed and built on many years of IT Advisory and Technical Architecture experience enables a rapid review that gets straight to the core of the current state of the technology behind product/platform businesses. This enables companies get to a clear position on any potential technology investment, supporting agility in their decision making processes.

The Outcome

During this Technology Assessment assignment, BoatyardX supported the client in quickly understanding the technology environment therefore enabling comfort on the investment TTM Healthcare planned to make.
