Along with consolidation of services when merging entities together there can be duplication

Along with consolidation of services when merging entities together there can be duplication of services/personnel/products/delivery systems, etc. that will require management’s attention. There are certain economies of scale (EOS) that benefit from larger numbers being serviced by a single (or smaller circle) of providers. However, the “down side” of this practice is the need to reduce so that there is an efficiency achieved. Using your reply of the VAs how were they effected? Did you see the changes for consolidate worth the need to reduce duplications? Why or why not? 100 word thanks one reference
