DPC supports Trimble to overcome the integration challenges in the merger process


DPC combined its expertise in advising businesses in the technological area with its experience in business management and mergers to support the American multinational Trimble in the integration process of a Brazilian company.

Trimble, operating in the market for over 40 years, supplies hardware and software products and services in more than 150 countries, revealing the strength of its global presence.

Read here about the support provided by DPC to the multinational company to advance in the merger of the purchased company, overcoming the challenges of aligning the different management situations, processes, and systems, in a project also focused on minimizing the tax burden on operations.

Context / Challenge

Trimble purchased the Brazilian Veltec, a privately held fleet management company that provides solutions for transportation companies improving safety and reducing operational costs.

Upon the merger, the multinational company was faced with a challenge: to integrate systems and processes, seeking to align the operational structure of both companies to ensure uniformity of management, accounting practices, and other aspects.

Another important issue, as it impacts competitiveness and profitability, involves tax planning, considering the taxes applicable to industrial and services rendering activities, in addition to the analysis of the impact of the tax rates in the states where each company is based: Trimble is based in São Paulo, while Veltec is based in Paraná.

DPC’s solutions

In a collaborative and strategic manner, DPC worked closely with Trimble's team and its legal advisors since the integration began to be planned.

The intention was to promote integration in a transparent, efficient, and least costly way, considering, whenever technically and economically feasible, the use of the combined resources from each company.

The multidisciplinary approach received support from DPC's teams of specialists in the Tax, Accounting, and Labor areas, considering all the complexities involved in conducting the integration.

The technological needs were met by the consultancy and systemic deployment team, which developed solutions for integration between the systems, keeping in mind the tax specificities of the business lines.

In addition to the technical areas, the Customer Care team also performed to establish a project vision among the various areas of DPC and the client, with the prior definition of workflows and responsibility structures in an integrated manner.

Results for the client

Trimble chose to continue operating in two units: one in São Paulo (head office), and another one in Paraná (branch). The DPC's performance contributed to increase the client's confidence in the related decision processes. This performance included:

  • Taxes consultancy, by presenting the best option to the client to minimize the impact of a tax burden in the combination of activities.
  • Accounting support in the preparation of the accounting appraisal report of the merged company, required in the purchase consolidation.
  • Labor support in the standardization and integration of the head office and branch payrolls.

All these processes were integrated, in order to meet the client's needs in operational and strategic terms. It is worth mentioning that all the work was developed without any interruption in the company's monthly obligations, for which DPC is still providing routine services to both head office and branch.
