The paper "InterClean Integration with Enviro-Tech" is a good example of a business case study. InterClean has gone through several transformations making it one of the most respected companies within the sanitation and cleaning industry. This means that we are therefore taking the lead within the sanitation industry and industrial cleaning. The integration with Enviro Tech was the most prolific with Enviro-Tech being one of our former competitors within the market as well as renowned expertise in environmental regulatory and compliance requirements. The integration provided us with a means to adopt a vision of coming up with new and more extensive markets providing full solutions to all of our customers.
This has been able to make us more profitable and sustainable within the competitive market. The integration has made us stronger to meet the ever-changing needs of technological developments, economic uncertainty and new environmental regulations coming up. We were not only faced by the challenge to integrate before but the challenge to change the present traditions and company processes. These were enhanced by the urge to maintain our viability as well as remaining sustainable as a company.
It was therefore of great need to restructure and reposition ourselves so as to capture all the upcoming markets as well as create opportunities, expand the present business and improve on the profitability in as many areas as possible (Gale Research Company, 1986). As first-level managers, we believe we have played a crucial role during the integration of Interclean and Envirotech. This has come along with invaluable resources and personnel that cannot just be overlooked. We have so far had an opportunity to diversify our products and services that are beyond comparison within the sanitary and cleaning industry.
The new direction transformed InterClean from a product-minded organization to a product and service-driven organization which is really working well for the company and the industry as well. The situation was brought out by the emerging changes in customer preference. Customers are no longer interested in products that just cleaned and killed germs. They were interested in solutions and services that they felt they should modernize their cleaning efforts (United States Department of Commerce et. al., 1991). And since we adopted the belief that profitability of any company depends on fulfilling the increasing demands of customers, we had to expand into a full-service product and service structure by merging with EnviroTech with the vision of creating a new market in providing full solution to the customer.
This transformation and acquisition have created some communication, training and recruiting issues. With the merger, InterClean-Enviro Tech employees are to gain the needed knowledge and skills set to retain their positions within the company. InterClean was traditionally was thought of as a defender organization is changing the organizational structure and repositioning itself in the market as an exploring organization. We are still looking forward to climbing higher the ladder with continued success through teamwork as already portrayed by our employees.
This along with their creativity and the urge for customer satisfaction will make the road to success worthy. We have gone through various stages of our employees’ development processes including comprehensive training and compensation plans among others. Although we have made several signs of progress as a company, InterClean-Enviro Tech has several issues to address.
It will be ridiculous to assume that it will be an easy role in any way unless the company revert the issues into real opportunities, then these will lead us through a path of success. Even still the current issues will most likely take a tremendous amount of time and effort to resolve, this will be a significant factor in assisting the company to attain the goals they have set for themselves.
