“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.”

“I am very happy and honored to provide you with a reference for Practical Technology Solutions.  I have been EXTREMELY happy with the work that has been provided.  I have not been using them for long (just a number of months), but in a very short time frame they have reassured me that my trust in them as a consulting business partner is well worth it.  I see their knowledge of the Epicor® Product lines as being very in-depth and their staff as highly resourceful.  I highly recommend them as a business consulting partner for your business and technical application needs.”

“We are a growing Engineering and Manufacturing company within the Mail Order Pharmacy industry.  About a year ago, we purchased Epicor® 10 as a tool to help us grow the company and link all departments from a system point of view.  Epicor® sales presentation provided the proof that these goals would be met with this software. We fortunately found Jim Chance at PTS.  He has been working with us over the past quarter, with all of our testing and implementation (go-live) pain points.  He has spent many long hours with us onsite, understanding our company and our needs as it relates to Epicor®.  He is currently helping us to develop processes, procedures, forms, and BAQ’s for each end user and each department, on an as-needed basis.  I have found him and his team to be extremely knowledgeable in all areas within Epicor® – from production to finance – which has made him and his team extremely valuable to our company as we embark on this software implementation. ”
