Consolidating organizations

By centralizing or consolidating functions such as B2B e-commerce your business becomes more agile as it can grow quickly without the expense of re-inventing or extending your back-office functions.Most medium and large organizations will have developed piecemeal B2B solutions over time.

Under the Halsbury's Laws of England, 'amalgamation' is defined as "a blending together of two or more undertakings into one undertaking, the shareholders of each blending company, becoming, substantially, the shareholders of the blended undertakings.

There may be amalgamations, either by transfer of two or more undertakings to a new company, or to the transfer of one or more companies to an existing company".

Consolidation is the practice, in business, of legally combining two or more organizations into a single new one.

Upon consolidation, the original organizations cease to exist and are supplanted by a new entity.

Merger and acquisition adds further to the challenge by introducing the necessity to consolidate an entire new set of B2B systems.

Most B2B infrastructures have developed on a national basis.

We’ve put a lot of thought and work into the structure of our software so that one person can own many organizations (companies) that can operate independently, but under the same login without the members of these orgs being able to see what the others are doing, etc…

Since orgs are free to create within Hubstaff, we’ve found that some clients have created many different orgs (even though these orgs should have been created as projects).

Business consolidation is used to improve operational efficiency by reducing redundant personnel and processes.
