No matter how long the turnaround of your projects, no matter how many people you have around to deliver services, services-focused firms need to face a constant stream of challenges to deliver on client needs. Whether you’re fighting off increased competition, expanding your service offerings to meet client expectations, or working to empower a remote workforce, the right ERP solution can deliver timely, profitable, and well-executed projects.
From the finance department to the project managers, consultants, and support staff, your business needs to understand and adapt to the challenges that manifest themselves. It’s no longer simply delivery, it’s all about improvement. How can you step up?
ERP Solutions for Service-Based Organizations
Connecting financial management with projects, customer service, and more, companies whose main job is to deliver services have leveraged enterprise resource planning products for decades. Built to provide visibility, increase margins, and facilitate workflows, ERP can deliver. But not every solution was created equal—nor was every ERP partner.
Inexperienced firms often miss the mark, and with something as critical to your business as ERP, that’s something you simply can’t afford.
At Kissinger Associates, we’ve dedicated our time and focus to delivering for the needs of the service-based business, and have spent decades putting solutions into action.
We understand the challenges you face and specialize in customizing, implementing, and training users on two solutions built to handle your needs: Sage 100cloud and Acumatica. No matter where you are on your cloud journey, no matter your size, these two solutions are designed to meet you where you are and put you in a position to achieve your goals.
Sage 100cloud: Hybrid ERP Built for the Service Industry

Accelerate sale closure, enhance customer experience, and improve data integrity. With cloud-enabled integration, your team can access the information they need to do the job right.

Never lose sight of your business. With easy to create reports and integration with a variety of products built for today’s service firm, you can spend more time focusing on analysis and interpretation of your information and less time pulling the data together.

Plan and Grow without Growing Pains
From forecasting to reporting, success relies on your ability to know what’s on the horizon to act on the plans. When to hire, when to go on the offensive, and when to focus on delivery—they all require the right information in the right hands. But to make this happen, everything needs to flow through your business. Customer-friendly resource-based pricing provides access to everyone—employees, customers, and vendors—and helps position your firm for growth, without burying you in costs.
Take Control of Projects Before, During, and after Delivery
A project doesn’t begin when the consultant arrives, and a relationship doesn’t end when you finish service. Each part of your business needs to work together to ensure that a project goes smoothly. From easy quoting built to provide salespeople and your customers with accurate information at the right time to a complete view of project-related costs for materials, labor, services, and inventory items, Acumatica helps you stay in control of projects.

With a single source of data and reports available anytime, anywhere and on any device, you not only can improve decision making skills, you can streamline your business.
