Our advisors will work to understand and document all of the required services to meet the business needs during the transition period. We also assist in monitoring the service levels for the TSA, help in managing the financial arrangements between the parties and provide advice on managing the termination of services.

We stress well-documented procedures to manage internal demand, such as the use of additional services within the TSA to ensure proper support from the buyer and seller. Finally, Finix advisors are skilled in creating an internal communication plan to ensure stakeholder buy-in on transition strategy and timeline.
