ÂWe needed an enterprise solution which provided all the functionality we require to run our business, it needed to be to be flexible and easy to maintain to so that our end users could run their business units with greater ease and it needed to integrate into our existing Microsoft technology infrastructure. We also needed a new software system that uses an industry standard platform and that has a high return of investment with a lower total cost of ownership then our current system said Michael Wilson, IT Director at Growers Express. Michael added, ÂIteration2Âs Proof of Concept Methodologies demonstrated areas in our business that needed attention before the project started which will allow us to mitigate our risk during the project.Â In closing, Michael comments how important vendor stability is for Growers Express, ÂImplementing an ERP package from Microsoft ensured us that we would not have to go through evaluating and implementing a new package from another company anytime soon. We predict in the future as the business grows that we will only need to upgrade our system with new functionality and when we learned that Iteration2 won the US Microsoft Partner of the Year, we felt comfortable that we had found the right solution and the right implementation partner.Â
