Whether your goals are long-term or short-term, ICG understands the overarching goal to deliver quality products to your customers on time and in the most effective manner. With ICG’s expertise, we help you connect and integrate every aspect of your business. From laying the organizational groundwork to planning for the long haul, our ERP and IT veterans guide smooth and successful ERP implementations and upgrades.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are the backbone of modern manufacturing. The agility a modern ERP system provides is truly amazing. ERP implementations and upgrades are backed by business processes fine-tuned to the specific needs of each business. These help any company excel in today’s competitive environment. If your organization has a myriad of thrown together solutions or simply limped along with a legacy ERP platform, it is time to invest in overhauling your business operations.
ICG’s expert consultants have been working with Fourth Shift for decades and we know the product inside and out. We are pleased to continue to support customers for whom Fourth Shift remains the right ERP for their business. We also have a deep bench of consultants well-versed in Visual, with a depth of manufacturing knowledge.
For Fourth Shift or Visual customers who are no longer well served by their ERP, we are pleased to offer Acumatica. The consensus within ICG’s expert consultants is that Acumatica is the next step in the evolution of ERPs. It’s the biggest decision in the history of ICG, but we think it’s absolutely the right one.
Our foundation approach is coupled with our three decades of immersion in every aspect of manufacturing, from the board room to the shop floor. And during this time, we’ve developed the expertise to deliver manufacturing operations anywhere and anytime.
