What People are Saying About N&A
What do Private Equity and Nestell & Associates have in common?
Our business and operating model is very much like a Private Equity firm. We are strategic but also in the trenches with our PE partners for the full investment cycle from pre-LOI to exclusivity, to post-acquisition. Nestell & Associates’ primary goal is solving real, and not perceived, issues in assuring organizational change success. We are invested in our Private Equity partners and we are highly motivated to contribute to and create a vibrant, healthy, and sustainable business.
At Nestell & Associates, we are exclusively focused on Private Equity. We understand the ultimate value of reliable, accurate, and timely business information for your portfolio companies. The mechanisms for delivering that sound business intelligence are in the form of cost-effective and efficient IT and ERP management and practice. We also understand that to be effective, IT and ERP solutions require the proper people, processes, and support.
As Private Equity is 100% of our business, we understand the “pain points” and therefore, from concept to strategy, to tactical action, to measurement, we know how to effectively mitigate, eliminate, or minimize the pain points. The key to Private Equity success is not to only try to prevent any/all issues and challenges (that’s impossible), but also to handle them appropriately by knowing and addressing the root issues when they rise to the surface.

THE PRIVATE EQUITY CHALLENGE
Complex transformational M&A Initiatives can have a significant impact on portfolio organizational capital (time, money, and effort). We help manage complex transformational M&A initiatives and de-risk IT and ERP implementations for companies in order to maximize business value. We do this through strategic IT and ERP advisement, analysis, planning, selection, implementation, and support. IT and ERP implementations are a high-risk undertaking that can threaten portfolio business value and exits. Without careful planning and stakeholder buy-in, IT and ERP platform implementations can destabilize workflows and increase operational risk. Our principals' hands-on insight and industry-leading research help steer firms away from ERP and IT mishaps. Nestell & Associates makes holistic organizational change central to its work so that all operations—technical, human, and business—synchronize to maximize portfolio business value.

We also realize that accurate and timely business information is crucial to decision making which means that effective IT and efficient ERP assimilation are significant change agents of success and EBITDA goals."
Managing IT and ERP as Catalysts for Change
We know that IT and ERP are both change agents to drive organizational improvements and to create or maintain a competitive advantage. However, we are aware of the many operational complexities, challenges, and constraints during M&A activity.
