Service Area: System Selection & Implementation
Client Type: Portfolio Company
Service Provider Type: Supply Chain Technology Firm
Industry: Waste Management
A rapidly expanding outsourced waste management company had outgrown its accounts payable automation tool. With a modest-sized IT team, they needed expert help with greater depth and engineering to better handle their growth requirements.
With an IT team of less than 10 people, the VP of Tech asked BluWave for help finding a service provider that could better integrate their CRM with their AP tool. As business continued to boom, they weren’t able to keep up with the transactions and needed guidance on not only getting the most out of the tools in place, but finding something more powerful for the future.
The very next day, we connected them with four experienced service providers that have done excellent work for other independent and portfolio companies, respectively. They landed on their top choice – a proven system architecture firm that understands their industry – and we continued to support the company by monitoring the service provider until the project was finished, and beyond.
The IT firm helped the portco reorganize its systems internally, better equipping them to select and implement a new AP automation tool. They were able to better integrate with their ERP and manage ever-increasing transactions more efficiently.
The work product we have seen is very good, both for documentation and quality of expected outputs.
They stayed involved from the discovery phase on through implementation.
The changes all look very good and were completed faster than expected. Additional input on changes were well received and follow up has occurred quickly.-Vice President of Technology at the Company
