MergeAssist Network Assessment

Empowered’s MergeAssist Network Assessment is designed to help you if you’re embarking on a merger or acquisition. As part of this process, you may need to fully map the disparate network or networks. It is necessary for you to access accurate inventory information and compile the data in a serviceable format to support your team in effective network integration planning and execution. Similarly, for a divestiture, it is critical that you can produce an accurate inventory map that identifies all network devices to be removed from your network.
