CCG to merge cloud and on-premise Deltek Vision ERP software systems for environmental consulting firm Psomas.
Minneapolis, MN — June 4, 2014 —Top-ranked engineering firm Psomas recently hired Central Consulting Group (CCG) to handle the complex data integration of two Deltek Vision® ERP systems following the firm’s merger with Southern California’s premier environmental consulting firm BonTerra Consulting.
“We chose CCG for the data integration because they’re a Deltek Vision Premier Partner we’ve worked with for several years, and we’re impressed by how well they understand our unique environment,” said Natalie Kyriakoudis, Controller at Psomas. “Our CCG consultants know how we use Vision and have helped us customize the software to meet our specific business processes. They also installed CCG Electronic Invoicing, their proprietary add-on product for Vision that speeds our invoice review process,” she noted.
The Psomas-BonTerra database merger involves several complex issues, including:
• Combining cloud and on-premise ERP software versions
• Aligning different versions of SQL Server
• Merging different versions of Deltek Vision
• Changing a multi-company database into a single-company database
“The only way we can optimize synergies from the merger is if all 500 of us can share client and opportunity information,” Kyriakoudis said. “CCG is helping us fully leverage our investment.”
“Data merging and integration are CCG strengths,” said Jonathan Monroe, CCG Managing Consultant. “Clients come to us following mergers and acquisitions, or when they’re migrating to new ERP software. They know we take a programmatic approach to merging databases that provides a smoother cut-over and gives them easier access to their key business information,” Monroe explained.
