☆ consolidate 集約する
When you consolidate a number of things you make them into one larger thing. This can be done to help strengthen a position – for example, often smaller companies are consolidated into one large organization to create one stronger, more profitable organization.
Often companies will consolidate some operations within the company itself, so that it can streamline things better. And if you are looking at your own to-do list, you might find that there are things on it that can be consolidated into one task to make your own workflow more organized and efficient.
