For this case study, I was tasked with determining which parent company would be best to acquire Paytronix, a customer loyalty SaaS company, along with one that the parent company should delete in its place. Throughout my research, I concluded that HubSpot, the SaaS company that produces marketing, customer service, and sales software, would be the best fit to acquire Paytronix. In order to make this decision, I utilized the strong brand association, HubSpot’s trend of acquiring firms, and Paytronix’s specialization to justify this acquisition. Likewise, I utilized these same factors to justify HubSpot’s deletion of its subbrand Evolve.
