Berger was originally using FMS on a Mainframe computer, which was not compatible with the Y2K issue. Its team was in need of a new system with easier reporting options, easier ways to create a check batch and the ability to look up historical transactions.
Columbus came onsite to do a demo of Microsoft Dynamics GP for the Berger team, which is where the process initially began. Berger was considering other technology options such as Microsoft SL (Solomon) and MAS 500 from Sage Software. Ultimately, Berger believed that GP was the best fit for their company over any other business solution.
“Columbus installed Microsoft Dynamics GP and got it up and running with customizations for our processes on day one,” says Bert Green, GP Developer at Berger Transfer & Storage.
The overall deployment timeline was about 3-6 months from start to going live on the system.
Green also explains that Columbus helped his team in retrieving open information from their current system into the GP system. “They walked us through every step and made the transition very easy,” he said.
The most prominent benefit of Dynamics GP for Berger is that it has made the process of looking up historical items much easier, saving employees a lot of time and worry.
Berger has recently been finishing up with an upgrade project to GP2015 while they complete their own customizations. Their team believes this process has been going smoothly.
