Why Rangeland Engineering Came to GURUS
In a testimonial featuring Rangeland Engineering’s leading business analyst, Russell Balotro, Balotro discusses his first-hand experience working with GURUS for their NetSuite implementation.
Balotro explains the qualities they were looking for in an implementation partner, the very same qualities that found in GURUS Solutions. Balotro explains, “We were looking for a company that had expertise in the project management, resource allocation, job costing, and advanced financial modules, and could help with implementation.”
Essentially, the team at Rangeland Engineering came to GURUS Solutions hoping for a complete revamp of their financial system. With a lot of work to do within a tight timeframe, the teams began working.
Implementing NetSuite for Engineering With
As an engineering company, Rangeland Engineering was the perfect candidate for NetSuite ERP. With solutions for a variety of industries and needs, NetSuite is a highly scalable and customizable ERP system that offers many different features and modules to meet the needs of different industries.
With an experienced NetSuite partner, like GURUS Solution, customizing NetSuite to meet the needs of an engineering company was right in the realm of expertise. As a trusted partner, GURUS has years of experience creating custom solutions for different companies and industries, as well as customizing NetSuite instances using custom script.
In order to help the Rangeland Engineering team in a way that best fit their needs and business structure, GURUS Solutions used a Sherpa Guide approach. GURUS offers three levels of engagement for clients: Sherpa Coach, Sherpa Guide or Sherpa Experience. Each client can decide which one best meets their team’s availability and/or expertise, and the level of involvement they are looking for. This way, GURUS can offer recommendations and guidance every step of the way to ensure a successful project.
For Rangeland Engineering, a Sherpa Guide approach meant that the GURUS team and Rangeland team shared the workload 50/50.
Commenting on the shared approach, Balotro says, “When we started working with GURUS, there really, really, was clear communication, and they were really good at explaining how NetSuite worked because we were very new with NetSuite, as well as the implementation cycle, and how that would work.”
Clear and open communication is key to any successful project, as well as to teamwork in general.
Balotro also boasts about GURUS’ technical knowledge, saying, “I would say the technical expertise of GURUS was absolutely amazing. Anything with troubleshooting, they’d come back to us and give us an ETA or an ETR, and they’d always live up to their promises.”
The marriage of expertise, communication, and organization allowed the GURUS team to successfully implement a NetSuite for Engineering solution that could meet all of Rangeland Engineering’s present needs, as well as scale up with their growth in the future.
To meet Rangeland’s requirements, GURUS implemented three NetSuite modules:
- Project Management:
A module that allows companies to manage services organization with integrated project management, project tracking, and reporting. Businesses can automate project creation, automatically track percent complete, time budgeted and time spent on project tasks and access reports for utilization.
- Advanced Financials:
A module that brings complementary financial management functionality to NetSuite, including budgeting, expense allocations, amortization, flexible billing management, and statistical accounts.
- Resource Allocation:
A module that allows companies to proactively forecast and allocate resourced using graphics and interactive reports.
Once the modules were implemented and NetSuite was live, GURUS stayed alongside Rangeland to help them grasp their new software with a series of specialized NetSuite training sessions.
In order to get the most out of your new ERP system, it’s important for your team to be equipped with the knowledge and expertise to leverage your new system. A reliable partner will provide your team with all the resources they need.
