Enterprise Resource Management systems are highly complicated systems. Many companies that try to implement these systems without the proper guidance, planning, and knowledge will face many challenges, and most likely failure. A failed ERM implementation is costly and can handicap a company for years. According to a survey conducted by Forrester Research in April 2001, only six percent of 500 companies surveyed considered their ERM systems effective, while 79 percent said they were not effective or only somewhat effective. Dan Fine, Managing Partner of FBS, said, "No single point of failure can be attributed to a failed ERM implementation, but most of the time it has to do with hiring unqualified consultants to lead the project."

FBS realizes how important it is to have trained consultants. The company rewards employees with stock ownership for certification.

Gokhan Kestek, a FBS employee, met the rigors of the AX certification program by passing seven tests in the following modules; Financials, Trade & Logistics, Production, Installation & Configuration, Product Builder, Shop Floor Control and Development. He is an AX Master. Ashok Kumar, a GP Master, has passed the following tests; GP Integration Manager, Financials, Installation & Configuration, SQL Server 2005. Ashok has also passed; AX Financials, Installation & Configuration. In addition to these Master consultants, Julie Hein recently passed GP Financials.
