At BPM, we believe the key to continuous business growth is founded on the triad of people, process and technology. Our Technology Solutions Group focuses on these cornerstones to provide you with efficient solutions that allow you to manage your business successfully. As one of the 50 largest public accounting and advisory firms in the country, we have the experience and the expertise needed to help you reduce risk, uncover opportunities and cut down on corporate headaches.
Software Evaluation and Selection
Streamlined and automated processes are critical to the success of your business. Many organizations struggle to effectively manage process change, as the business evolves. Interim manual processes ultimately turn into long-term solutions. Outdated technology and turnover compounds the problem and before you know it your business is facing an overwhelming and insurmountable project.
We combine our technical skills with deep accounting and operational experience to recommend and implement best practices, so you can reach your full growth potential. Potential solutions range from cloud-based accounting support all the way to fully integrated enterprise systems. Once a solution is set in place, you can count on us to provide ongoing support to ensure your processes and systems are running as smoothly as possible.
ERP Systems Implementation
In the event a full ERP system is desired, we follow-up our assessment of your as-is business processes by mapping them to system requirements associated with potential ERP options. With this approach, we develop the information needed to recommend the best solution for your company.
We serve as your single point of contact during an ERP implementation by focusing on the following activities:
- Project Management: We manage the project from start to finish and provide you with the technical resources, training and support you need with consideration to your industry, business processes, size and growth potential.
- Application Administration: Instead of hiring expensive fulltime resources to maintain your ERP solution, we help on an as-needed basis. We quickly and easily perform the application administration, so you can focus on your business’s mission.
- Upgrade Support: As ERP providers upgrade their applications, companies often struggle to keep up and ensure business processes and other system interfaces still work together properly. At BPM, we address the impact of upgrades with interface enhancements, testing and training, so you can take advantage of the latest technology without constraining your internal resources.
- Level One Direct Access: Think of all of the times you have waited on hold for tech support of a solutions provider. Now imagine us taking that off your hands. We have the resources to solve your configuration or data problem quickly. With direct access to the development teams of our ERP software providers, we take on the burden of dealing with the software manufacturers to resolve problems immediately.
We have years of ERP implementation experience with a variety of ERP solutions, in diverse industries, with companies of all sizes. We will work with you to determine what makes the most sense for your situation. We currently work directly with ERP software providers such as NetSuite and Intacct.
