Signal℠ by Bain

Signal is a powerful, flexible, cloud-based program management tool that provides unmatched visibility over every aspect of your merger or divestiture.

Signal℠ by Bain

To capture the full value from your deal, you need more than a great work plan. Our potent, easy-to-use tool helps your team track every aspect of an integration or divestiture.

Unlike standard program management tools, Signal is tailor-made for M&A activities, based on our extensive mergers and acquisitions experience. Offering six dedicated modules that support our unique decision-driven approach to merger integration, it achieves a bold ambition: less time spent tracking, more time focusing on key actions, and ultimately—a shorter lead time to program launch.

Signal creates a single source of truth, enabling rapid collaboration within working teams across ogranizations, as well as the ability to accelerate issue resolution, monitor progress against goals, and manage talent movement. An intuitive interface reduces the need for upfront training; responsive design means it continually adapts to users’ needs.

Now you can spot roadblocks, track value, and execute efficiently on every detail. By managing the nuts and bolts, Signal gives you back valuable time to focus on the key decisions and actions that will drive your program forward.
