What We Do

Our primary focus is ERP from ERP business case, through ERP software selection to ERP implementation. To get a sense of our expertise, check out the following on our website:

How We Do IT

We do not sell or implement any product or accept any compensation from vendors or implementers for our advice or services. Our advice is based on extensive knowledge of what is available and what is required across a wide range of industries.

Benefits

Benefits to working with 180 Systems include:

  • Complete projects successfully
  • Save time and money
  • Reduce the risks
  • Negotiate better contractual terms

Costs

At 180 Systems, we're committed to on-time and on-budget projects. Unless you request additional services, there are no extra costs and we absorb the risks associated with overruns on our services. Our fees will be very competitive as we are not a large consulting firm that needs to cover the high costs of overhead and partner remuneration.
