ERP/ Financial Systems

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and financial systems implementation can be one of the most strategic, transformative, and beneficial projects an organization can undertake. It can also be the riskiest, both from a return on investment and a business interruption perspective. Key financial executives may find themselves with the organizational responsibility for “getting it done.”

Are you ready?  Does your company and financial staff possess an objective perspective? Are key members up-to-speed with best practices, and proven and practical methodologies? Do you have a wide and deep knowledge base to draw on?

Some consulting firms push their less experienced resources out to clients which reduces effectiveness, causes unnecessary rework, and eventually requires far more hours to do the same work. You need a partner that will ensure a perspective based on what are truly best practices, while providing the most efficient, economical, and effective end results.

At AC Lordi, we get to know your business so we can work on problems and solutions within the context of an end-to-end business model and solution. While AC Lordi doesn’t align itself with any one particular ERP product, we do provide the implementation services that can make or break an ERP/financial system project. We work at all levels to guarantee quality and timeliness of our client’s ERP/financial systems initiatives, and we always offer a “non-opinionated” view of what is truly best for the client.
