“Having a document imaging application that is part of the ERP application suite along with a hosted, cloud-based deployment option were the key driving factors in our solution selection process when we decided to replace our legacy software.” stated John Sjoberg, Controller of Shaw-Lundquist. “Since we are familiar with the core financial applications of the Computer Guidance Construction ERP, our implementation has been greatly focusing on project financials, document imaging and collaboration supported by a wide variety of productivity tools.”
