Manufacturing companies typically have the most complex system requirements that we encounter. Not only do they require additional features in their ERP systems, the general concept of manufacturing and cost accounting can be very confusing.
The basics of a manufacturing systems (Bill of Materials, Routings, and Manufacturing Orders) require a strong understanding of the Manufacturing process. However, more complex features such as Material Resource Planning (MRP), Capacity Resource Planning (CRP), Production Planning and Demand Forecasting, and Quality Assurance (QA) require a knowledgeable expert to guide you through the process.
Many of our Consultants have worked in the Manufacturing field as Cost Accountants, Production Planners, and Warehouse Supervisors. We combined this experience with our deep understanding of the Manufacturing process and system to bring the best possible solutions to our Manufacturing clients.
Distribution & Wholesale
For distributors, operational effectiveness is a must; simply being effective is not enough. No longer is the business just a process of moving product from one place to another. The complexities increase on an almost daily basis, how to have effective inventory control, manage changing regulations and how to do this using technology as a differentiator.

The Professional Services industry includes Banking, Insurance, CPAs, Lawyers, Consulting firms, and Financial service firms. These companies focus on selling services instead of products in the Distribution industry. They are “front-end” when it comes to an ERP/CRM solution, where they majority of their processes take place in the sales, marketing, and service area of their system.

Not for Profit
Not-for-Profit businesses operate differently than traditional for-Profit companies. These entities strive to make improvements and provide extraordinary services to their communities. Nonprofits derive their operating revenues from foundations, government grants, membership dues, and fees for services they provide. They are also faced with the difficulties of matching expenditures to the appropriate fund.
As a not-for-profit organization, their ERP system should emphasize their accountability rather than their profitability. Because of this methodically shift from a traditional For-Profit business, Not-For-Profit businesses need to extremely diligent when selecting their ERP system.
They need to focus on Fund Management, Grant Management, Fund Accounting, Donor and Board Management as well as strict Budget Controls. We have worked with many Not-for-Profit organizations and understand the importance of a proper ERP system. Instead of relying on work-arounds and spreadsheets, our solutions focus on the actual features that Not-for-Profit organizations need.
Construction & General Contracting
Companies that are in the construction industry have very unique requirements when it comes to their ERP systems. Processes such as Bid Management, Job Costing, and Project Billing are not typical “out of the box” ERP features. However, it’s these unique features that enable companies to quickly adapt to changes, and accurately report on their projects. Most companies also need a very complete and advanced project management system. They need to be able to have flexible revenue recognition abilities, timely project cost capturing from workers in the field, and complete visibility of all project resources.
We understand the demands that the processes in the Construction industry puts on an ERP system, and we work hand-in-hand with our clients to overcome these obstacles.
