“The straight forward approach was a relief and I appreciate how the PTS team jumped straight in despite the complex challenges we faced.  I was able to speak with Jim directly several times which provided a great amount of comfort, I never had any trouble reaching him and/or a member of his team.

The team at PTS assisted in arranging meetings in which we discussed complicated business process and procedure requirements. This sped up the improvement process significantly.  PTS’ methodology was a perfect fit to quickly and thoroughly address our needs and provide solutions.

The functional results that were produced as a result of Jim’s team were a key component in keeping operations running.  Moreover, their skills for development are extraordinary.  On top of his work, Jim’s team also provided excellent support. They dealt with questions ranging from the absolute basics to advanced easily and with an air of patience that can only be described as completely forgiving!

In short, I would have no hesitation in recommending PTS to any prospective client and I would be happy to answer any questions related to this reference.”

Dynamic Metals was in need of system change.  Both Culture and Processes needed improvement.  Multiple attempts have been made over the last 10 years with our current system to reimplement, upgrade and improve processes with little success.  Dynamic was stuck in manual mode and we needed assistance to break the culture and improve processes.  We met with PTS  to discuss our options.  We decided to utilize their services as they are familiar with our current system as well as the system we are in the process of implementing.  PTS  completed a thorough review of our current state understanding that we want to improve our processes using best practices with the new system.  The PTS staff has been knowledgeable, professional and is allowing us to implement with fewer resource hours from our staff.  With their assistance and guidance we have garnered enthusiasm throughout the organization for change that otherwise would have been a difficult task.  They have ensured with constant communication to mitigate any potential scheduling roadblocks in order to maintain the target schedule.  I look forward to completing the implementation and working with PTS on future improvements in our processes. I would certainly recommend PTS for consulting needs.

“We don’t have a traditional IT department…… I’ve worked with a few different consultants over the last 3 years, after I found PracticalTek (An independent professional services provider), I will always go to them first with a need. They got to my projects in short order, knew exactly what I was talking about most of the time and if they didn’t, it was easy to explain to them what I needed. The rate is better and the work is more efficient than I have found elsewhere. I would highly recommend PracticalTek (An independent professional services provider) to anyone using Epicor®.”
