Advanced communication - Taking communication to the next level

Business Development

When we speak about business development, we mean the supporting services: companies’ mergers, companies’ or assets' takeovers, support in funding acquirement, searching and setting cooperation rules with business partners, co-workers or distributors. The Advanced Communication professionals support their Clients in the field of searching and choosing their business partners, negotiate with involved sides and make sure that the agreements are signed on beneficial conditions for the Clients. They assist by due-diligence processes and support Clients with integration processes.

Advanced Communication also supports their Clients in the new business field, by:

  • supporting sales or commercialisation of assets belonging to the companies or other organisations,
  • advising their Clients on the entrance of companies on new markets (including markets located outside the borders of their native country),
  • searching and advising on how to take advantage of business possibilities which occur on markets.

Integration Process

Successfully finished integration of organisations (companies, other organisations, assets) are mainly an effect of good planning. Good plan includes a description of targets which the organisation plans to reach by integration, determines people involved in the project, description of main processes and the system of their implementation and control.

Right way to reach the target may be: a definition of integration’s vision, definition of main aims, integration processes, clear defining and planning of particular projects connected with integration and definition of integration’s influence on organisation’s operational activity.

Detailed plan is very crucial even for small transactions in the scale of the whole organisation’s activity. It is also a key point in case of internal and external communication, for any communication could go ahead with the earlier-compiled plan.

Cooperation with strategic partners

Strategic partnership and cooperation with independent distributors are often the only possibilities for the organisation to gain access to technologies, sale possibilities, marketing, and product and/or service distribution channels on given markets. Apart from seemingly complicated process, establishing strategic partnership is often much more cheaper and effective process than given reference development inside the organisation.

Advanced Communication professionals support their Clients in the area of:

  • identification of potential strategic partners of given markets,
  • participation in negotiations by finalisation of agreement concerning partnership,
  • observing the effectiveness of the established strategic partnership.  

Funding acquiring

Organisations need funding to: run current operational activity, develop on the given market or to enter new ones. There are many possibilities of organisation’s funding: funding from own resources, bank loans or from other institutions, external investors, specialised investment funds, support from the government and European Union, or acquiring capital by public offers.

Regardless of chosen possibility, funding acquiring is a time- and cost-consuming process. Frequently capital acquiring lasts months what may cost the organisation a loss of appearing business occasion. That is why it is necessary to possibly effectively carry out the process which is about proper presentation of the idea in the form of business plan to the potential investors or other decision makers. Advanced Communication supports their own Clients providing them services connected with building the history of the company, its proper presentation, assisting by applying for funding from government or European Union, searches and carries on discourses with potential investors.

Mergers and takeovers

Organisations takeover smaller companies while being guided by various motives. One of the most often reasons is a fast development in the technological field, other products offering or increase of interest on the market. Other reasons may be financial factors when the actual assessment of the taken-over company is lower than the enterprise is actually worth (e.g. taking into account the expected financial flow). Another reasons may be tax benefits. Regardless of motives, the process of company’s takeover undergoes some fixed stages: initial analysis, due diligence, negotiations, contract finalisation and integration (when the taken-over enterprise is to be integrated with the taking-over organisation). For all the stages to be successfully finished, it is necessary to ensure:

  • efficient communication,
  • direct involvement into the processes of the departments responsible for human resources management,
  • courses,
  • involvement of key employees into the process and preventing their possible departure,
  • preventing clients’ loss,
  • building appropriately organised teams after the ending of integration process.

Advanced Communication supports the Clients in operation planning and directly manages the processes and monitors the proceedings of others in order to enable efficient integration process execution and enable business targets’ realisation by reporting to the Board of Directors of a given organisation.
