We believe that the company implementing the software is as important as the software itself. Systems Advisory Services has all of the fundemental tenants that you should require of your implementation partner including:
|•||A Long History with the ERP Software - SAS has been implementing SYSPRO for more than 15 years and Sage PFW for 20 years. Our consultants know the details of each product leading to a more efficient and successful implementation.|
|•||Experienced Consultants - Our consulting team consists of individuals that have not only worked with the ERP software for years (average is 10 years with the software) but also have strong business skills. Our consultants are former controllers, accounting managers, COO's, materials managers, procurement managers, etc and/or former consultants with the leading international accounting firms (Price Waterhouse Coopers and KPMG). Our consultants add significantly more value to the implementation as they understand the issues users face because they have held those same positions.|
Methodology - Our approach for implementing ERP software
is based upon a proven methodology that we incorporate into all of our
projects. We've learned over the years that the methodology
must be flexible enough to take into account different client
requirements and working styles. Yet the basic methodology
provides a logical, structured approach that can be easily understood
by our clients. This structure reduces the strees of the
project participants as all participants have a clear understanding of
what needs to be done and when. Project management plays a
key role in a successful project.
We divide all projects into logical phases providing the project with logical checkpoints. Our standard phases are listed below. During the planning phase, we will work with the client to identify the tasks and responsibilities associated with each phase. That forms the basis of our project workplan.
SOME PROJECTS WE'VE WORKED ON
Systems Advisory Services has conducted hundreds of ERP implementations over the years - certainly too many to list here. Instead, we have listed some interesting facts about some of our projects.
Shortest implementation: 67 days -- We have implemented some quicker but those tended to be abbreviated (e.g. financial modules only). This project, for a manufacturer of utility enclosures in So California, included 15 modules in the areas of finance, sales, procurement, inventory and manufacturing.
Largest company: Google -- Ok, it was for one of Google's subsidiaries but even their subsidiaries are substantial!
Most unique industry: Bull semen -- no bull!
Yummiest client: Annabelle Candy Company -- awesome chocolate...
Sex, drugs and rock-n-roll (without the sex and drugs part): Dunlop Manufacturing -- makers of world renown picks, strings and other guitar accessories.
First client: Norton Industries -- one of our first tasks back in 1990 was to teach their team how to use Windows and a mouse! They continue to be our client today.
