RPI Consultants, a software and professional services consulting firm, has opened a new office in Lakeland, FL. The new office is a result of RPI’s rapidly expanding Lawson Technical Practice and the cluster of technical consultants within the region. The office will serve as meeting space for the collaborative efforts of highly knowledgeable Lawson technical resources.

RPI team members who will leverage the new Lakeland Office include: Carl Seay, Richard Stout, Benjamin Hardin, Gary Padgett, Rob Marshall, Josh Brunson and John Wade. They represent an extensive and diverse set of IT backgrounds in Lawson technology, database management, systems administration, programming, and automation.

RPI’s newest Senior Technical Consultants – Chip Cunningham and Jeff House – who both reside just outside the Tampa, FL metropolitan area plan to leverage the new office as well. Both have a long history of consulting in the Lawson space and have previously worked as Lawson Technical Architects for healthcare organizations in Florida.

With experience managing people and projects and implementing large scale enterprise systems and comprehensive knowledge of the application stack from OS to user interface, Chip has been helping Lawson customers make the most of their technology investment for over ten years as a technical lead, architecture manager, integration architect, systems administrator, systems analyst, and programmer. Previous to joining RPI, Mr. Cunningham was a Technical Lead at Ciber, Enterprise Architecture Manager at Lakeland Regional Medical Center and Senior Systems Analyst at Platform one – supporting multiple customers on Lawson.

Jeff House is a seasoned Lawson Technical Consultant with deep expertise in Lawson customization/interface development, system administration/installation and HCM functionality. Jeff has worked extensively with 4GL, IPA, and SQL, and has a thorough understanding of Lawson’s Cobol-based data extract programs and how Lawson retrieves and manipulates information. He has created numerous customized Employee/Manager Self Service solutions, led Absence Management implementations including writing custom calculations, and led multiple Lawson Security design and implementation projects, serving as the functional and technical resource. Additionally Jeff has a deep understanding of the GL and HCM data models and the business use of these Lawson suites. He has hands-on experience across the board of various Lawson configurations with a particular affinity for AIX. Mr. House has been working as a Lawson Consultant for five years and before that was a Lawson System Administrator and developer for University Community Health. He is fluent in: 4GL Cobol, JavaScript, HTML, SQL, IPA.

Also joining the Florida technical group is Project Manager and Senior Consultant Maureen Vance. Mrs. Vance is a PMP certified professional with over 20 years of experience who comes to RPI after working for the University of Central Florida.

“Seeing the growth of RPI’s technical team over the last few years has been very exciting. I’m ecstatic to work with so many talented consultants, many of which I’ve known for a long time, and this office is a big step towards building a first-class Lawson technical services organization that is collaborative, dynamic and responsive,” said Carl Seay, Senior Lawson Technical Consultant and head of RPI’s Lawson technical group.
