Whether you are acquiring a financial institution, adding or selling a branch location, or acquiring loans in your loan portfolio, mergers and acquisitions require a set of expertise that is in short supply when merger activity is in high gear.
An acquisition generally requires the compression of the products and vendors that will support the surviving organization. The resulting slew of contract termination fees, conversion and deconversion fees from technology vendors has the potential to bog down the financial efficiencies gained in the first 12-18 months after an acquisition.
Remedy has a breadth of experience in providing product guidance and negotiating both terminated and future technology contracts to benefit our clients.
Our organization was engaged in a negotiation with our core provider for a contract renewal. Although we were already well into the process, I made the decision to hire Remedy because I felt the negotiations were taking too long and consuming too much of my management team's time.

We wanted to ensure our pricing and contract terms were in line with those of other financial institutions. Remedy had the tools and knowledge to help us out. The process, from beginning to end, lasted about 4 months. Remedy took care of all the negotiations and simply kept us apprised of where the negotiations were at and how they were going.

Cornerstone Bank thanks Remedy Consulting as a strategic partner in core contract negotiation. Brian, Project Manager, streamlined the process of our core vendor renewal and advised us as to the new technologies that we could continue/implement and still receive a cost reduction on our five-year contract. We are happy to highly recommend Brian and the Remedy Team.

After completing one renewal on your own, it was evident that market pricing information was necessary for an effective negotiation. Remedy was able to provide that plus other contract information that made for a positive renewal. Remedy was able to achieve more than our expectations, including significantly lower rates.

Dairy State Bank, Rice Lake, WI
Remedy Consulting was able to achieve much more than our expectations during our core contract negotiation including significantly lower rates and contract language that much more favorable to the bank. We were extremely impressed with the project management and professionalism shown by the Remedy Team. Highly recommended.
