Why We Like Back to School

Posted in: Blog- Aug 16, 2013 No Comments

When I was a kid, I always loved this time of year. During the last weeks of summer, just as all of my friends were trying to forget the soon-to-be start of the school year, I would haunt the stationary stores that had “Back to School” sales. I just couldn’t wait! I haven’t changed all […]

Posted in: Blog- Jan 12, 2013 No Comments

Often when a company is looking into ERP there’s one or two motivating factors; and since ERP has been around for so long, in most cases the company is currently on a system that that hasn’t been updated in a decade or more.  As a result, there’s either something they need to do with their […]
