The reorganisation of a firm with the view of enhancing the efficiency of the operation is referred to as the rationalisation. This process of reorganisation may sometimes lead to changes being made to the policy, reduction or enhancement of workforce, and changes in approach and strategies pertaining to a product or service being offered by the company.
Rationalisation, as reorganisation, is done in a broad manner by making strategic changes along with structural modifications. At times, the situation demands a company to resort to rationalisation in order to make the required changes which will then lead to enhanced revenues and reduction in the operating cost and thereby improving its bottom line.
The process of rationalisation necessarily refers to the mechanism which makes the company become mindful of the expenses. For instance, the implementation of some financial models and technologies will eventually lead to the company reducing its expenses and thereby making it rational and more efficient.
Making use of the rationalisation and its applications, particularly at times when there are mergers and acquisitions can help the company optimise its expenses by minimising the operational expenses and supporting the primary objective behind the new deal. It involves providing support to legal and regulatory concerns, business continuity, and integration.
Majority of the business entities will amass a significant amount of information technology and its applications over time, specifically at times when the organisations will grow and fail to fully combine assets and operations with every transaction that is going to take place. Most of the applications available in the market will not facilitate the firm’s objective after every merger (or acquisition) and will need to revisit them in order to support the new venture.
