In early January of 2013, we were contracted to assist an engineer to order firm that has grown to 250 million in turnover by acquiring two of their former competitors. They had been 125 million before the acquisitions. The company engineers and manufactures custom equipment for the oil and gas exploration industry.
They were operating on three different ERP systems and needed to select an integrated ERP solution for all three divisions.
We began with a list of twelve solutions and within a four week period had narrowed the list to three short listed suppliers and selected a new ERP within six weeks. The implementation is in currently in progress.
