“I found PracticalTek with a Google search.  I spoke and met with Jim Chance and had a lengthy discussion about his company’s capabilities.  Everything sounded well as they possessed the capabilities we wanted, the reasonable rate and low risk.  That is, if this did not work out, I could sever the relationship quickly and move on. We have provided PTS with detailed specs often with screen-shots.  Our initial specs were for relatively simple customization’s.  We found that PTS worked very efficiently and coordinated very well with the project team. Today the staff of PTS is tackling our most complex customization and is working with us on other Epicor® implementation issues.  We also will utilize their report-writing capabilities shortly.  Because of this positive relationship, I highly recommend PTS for their efficiency, knowledge, communications and professionalism. “

“The other service we used from PTS was a training session that lasted a few days on site. We used one of their trainers, Jeremy, who was very talented in Epicor® but also had a naturally good communication style about him. He taught a few of our people the basics of writing Crystal Reports out of Epicor®. We plan on using PTS as a resource in Epicor® as we move forward.”

“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®.”
