“So far Jim and a group from PTS have come in to do a CRP/training session for two days that was extremely helpful. They have also developed and installed a customized program to assist in automated Order Entry and processing, shipment entry and processing, and have developed customized SSRS reports. They have always addressed our concerns in a timely manner, and are very conscientious about costs, and very detailed in their work. 

I definitely recommend PTS as a partner for Epicor® technical services and continue to use them. I only wish I had found them sooner. I will continue to go to them for enhancements, training and consulting as there is no doubt they will help us maximize our investment and minimize our time spent implementing various Epicor® solutions.”

“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®.”

— Dudek & Bock • Steel Manufacturing Industry

“We have used PTS for several of our Epicor® needs.  They have helped with our Epicor® implementation through training of our staff.  They have also helped with more technical aspects such as helping us set-up a secondary application server.  I have found PTS to be extremely knowledgeable and professional, and quick to help when needed.”

  • “Morton Manufacturing utilizes Epicor® for MRP functionality. PTS helped us through projects when we ran into roadblocks.  Their advanced expertise was more than enough for the problems and concerns we were facing.  They are well versed in visual basic and C# and they completed our projects very quickly.

    The results of their work were exactly what we wanted, and allowed us to continue moving forward.  We haven’t had any problems and we plan to use PTS again in the future.”

    “We have been using Practical Technology Solutions for about 8 months now to augment my 1 person Epicor® staff.  We are using PTS to help us with screen changes, report development, BAQ/BPM development, performance advice, solution design, system integration, and functional consulting.  We have been very happy with their work.  They have always been clear about work estimates and stayed within them.  Their technical quality has been excellent and their cost reasonable. PTS has always been able to address our requirements even in emergency situations. I would recommend PTS as a partner for Epicor® technical services and continue to use them. “

    Practical Technology Solutions (PTS) brought both business process background and E9 application knowledge  to the table in a very affordable package.  PTS helped us with both High level advice as well as detailed implementation assistance and outright programming assistance to develop and test customization’s and reports.  Their knowledge of reporting tools such as Crystal Reports and the database schema is excellent. While working with PTS recently, our consultant is responsive, always with a friendly, professional attitude.  He has provided insight and demonstrated a high level of technical skill.  We have assigned projects of various degrees of complexities with PTS and generally, have received a response in a timely manner. We would recommend PTS as a solution in assisting with ERP business challenges.”
