Junior Adventures Group

Speeding up acquisition integration

Leading Australian after-school care provider Junior Adventures Group acquired the sKids business in New Zealand. They needed onsite support to help integrate sKids into the wider group.

The fast approaching end of financial year created the additional pressure of an impending deadline, while the requirements spanned people, process, and technology.

Apolinar's Contribution

Working closely with the client as an extension of their team, we:

  • Reviewed the current technology stack and vendors.
  • Conducted individual stakeholder interviews.
  • Analysed the technology platform, including its architecture and code.
  • Placed a senior Apolinar team member onsite and gave them responsibility for the integration programme.
  • Reviewed the existing business process and recommended changes.
  • Assessed business systems and tools, and recommended changes.
  • Provided change support for the sKids team throughout the transition.

The Results

  • Cutover was achieved in time for the end of the financial year.
  • The internal team were coached on new and better business processes and systems.
