We wanted to write to thank you for all your help. If I were writing a reference letter it would go something like this:
Back in 2012, VBA made a commitment to streamline our accounting process with the goal of getting a better handle on how we tracked and allocated costs, processed payroll and executed monthly projections. We have used Sage Masterbuilder (Sage 100) since 2002 both as an accounting system and a PM platform for running our general contracting firm. Our goal was to utilize more of the features of the Sage along with customizing it to meet our individual requirements.
Through our local Sage partner, United Solutions, we were introduced to Larry Wendt and Syscon. Larry and his team listened to our issues, dug into our processes and came up with an implementation plan for each of the items. Over the next 6 months, we had a series of meetings and tutorial sessions where we systematically progressed through each of the improvements. Some of the solutions required the implementation of proprietary programs that Larry had developed while others solutions required an understanding and then a modification of existing procedures. In all instances, Larry showed a remarkable knowledge of Sage and a keen ability to analyze a problem and implement a more streamlined solution.
The assignment was completed in a timely and efficient manner. The results are that we have a better handle of our burdened payroll costs, our indirect cost allocation process and our over/under monthly projections. More importantly, it provides us the information we need to effectively run and improve our business in some very challenging times. In addition, while we were conducting our meetings and learning how to utilize some of the new tools and programs, Larry carefully documented the steps utilizing video recordings that we are still using today. It is all in the details!
We can’t say enough about Larry Wendt and his team. They are true professionals and Syscon is a valued partner to VBA to this day. Thank you.
