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 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. ”

“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.”

    “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.”

    Stanley Machining needed a quick turnaround on development and creation of many complex
    dashboards to help streamline our business flow.
    PTS (Practical Technical Solutions) expertise in the field of Vantage/Epicor® was a tremendous
    help in the creation of these dashboards and has since streamlined the way we process certain
    information in our plant. Not only was the response from their team quick and professional,
    there rate per hour is extremely competitive.
    I would go so far as to say. Epicor® can learn some lessons from PTS in regards to their consulting,
    implementation and billing process.
    Stanley Machining would recommend PTS as a trusted source in assisting with any ERP
