ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing) for Industrial Automation


A multinational consulting company specializing in industrial automation was looking for a fully integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to replace its legacy system—a patchwork of point solutions.

To find the right solution, the company turned to TEC for a software evaluation and selection project.
