MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) companies that we have worked with over the years always have one request: Core Tracking.  This is huge in the Aviation industry and for equipment repair of turbines or motors.  In some instances cores are limited due to the government not authorizing new data tags or the equipment is being phased out.   Clients First knew we had to have this functionality in our new MRO solution: ProMRO or ProFBO for Acumatica.

Top Reasons to Engage in a Fixed Fee ERP Implementation

June 21, 2018 / 0 Comments / in ERP Software, Acumatica Cloud ERP, Fixed Fee Acumatica, Fixed Fee ERP, No per user license ERP, Quick Turn Implementation / by Nancy Phillippi

Fixed Fee ERP Project

Fixed fee ERP implementation projects used to be something that I dared not speak of with prospects and customers.  Why?  Because I have been selling software for over 20 years and a few years ago accounting, manufacturing and general business software still had the clunky user interfaces, old back-end technology on proprietary databases, and of course the dreaded installation on suspect hardware.  This can eat up consulting dollars before you even get started.  Well, times have changed!  Software like Acumatica which was recently named a leader in ease of use makes it easy for our Acumatica consulting team to setup a customer using predefined setups that fit about 90% of all companies.  Customers get up and running fast and pay the services in 3 installments.  Budgeting for an ERP project has never been easier.   Really, the project has never been easier either.
