Companies across all industries and of all sizes are switching to public and private cloud computing because it offers many advantages and almost no disadvantages. Many companies are creating cloud-only or cloud-first policies in order to lower operating costs, increase efficiency, and improve security.
MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) companies that we have worked with over the years always have one request: Core Tracking. This is huge in the Aviation industry and for equipment repair of turbines or motors. In some instances cores are limited due to the government not authorizing new data tags or the equipment is being phased out. Clients First knew we had to have this functionality in our new MRO solution: ProMRO or ProFBO for Acumatica.
Six of Clients First staff and several customers and prospects attended the Acumatica 2018 R2 release Roadshow Tuesday October 9, 2018. Even with horrific weather the meeting room was full with about 75 partners, customers and prospects. One of our customers Trinity Fellowship Church flew in from Amarillo to attend and speak on the customer panel, however their arrival time went from 9 AM to 2:30 PM with a detour to Little Rock. That’s dedication to Clients First and Acumatica. We appreciate them as a customer! Read more
Surprises may be fun in our personal lives, but when it comes to ERP implementation, nothing good can come when a surprise happens. Surprises often mean new costs, increases in the length of the project, or other challenges that pop up, and should be avoided. At Clients First Business Solutions, we know the value of a well-planned ERP implementation, and understand that with the right plan in place, a surprise-free implementation can happen. Read more
The ERP decision and implementation process often feel convoluted, and for businesses without the right plan or implementation partner—it often is. Too often, a rushed decision gets made without all of the facts, resulting in cost overruns, hidden fees, or unforeseen expenses that could derail your project. Read more
At Clients First Business Solutions, we’ve been in this business long enough to understand that decision makers and end users alike are often nervous about the idea of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) replacement or upgrade. Whether they have heard horror stories about ERP implementation failures, they’ve read research about dismal success rates, or are just worried about the major change it could have on the way of doing business, there are many reasons someone may want to proceed with caution.

Over the past decade, the cloud has moved from a fringe deployment option designed for small and medium businesses to an enterprise-ready offering that can handle the needs of global businesses or publicly traded companies. However, it’s also likely you’ve heard a lot of hype and exaggeration about the cloud’s game-changing benefits or disruptive design. Read more
Fixed fee ERP implementation projects used to be something that I dared not speak of with prospects and customers. Why? Because I have been selling software for over 20 years and a few years ago accounting, manufacturing and general business software still had the clunky user interfaces, old back-end technology on proprietary databases, and of course the dreaded installation on suspect hardware. This can eat up consulting dollars before you even get started. Well, times have changed! Software like Acumatica which was recently named a leader in ease of use makes it easy for our Acumatica consulting team to setup a customer using predefined setups that fit about 90% of all companies. Customers get up and running fast and pay the services in 3 installments. Budgeting for an ERP project has never been easier. Really, the project has never been easier either. Read more

The cloud is nothing new, but as the market matures for cloud applications, companies in traditional, conservative industries are jumping on board.
In our last blog, we found that more “leaders” (top 35% of manufacturing organizations), were more than three times as likely to utilize cloud ERP for its ability to provide easy updates, increase agility, and enhance visibility for companies using this deployment method. Today, we would like to look at another key factor in the decision-making process, discussing just how much money the cloud is worth to organizations. Read more
