Featured Client Testimonials
We engaged Panorama Consulting to perform a two stage analysis in a very short period of time. The first was to recommend an ERP system that fit our business needs. Starz Entertainment was well underway with this process to the point of reviewing vendor proposals. Panorama was asked to review documentation describing our business processes, review the RFP responses for accuracy and truthfulness, and use their knowledge and contacts to provide a detailed analysis and recommendation.
We learned very quickly that Panorama could adapt to our requests and provide a quality product on time. They were very good. Panorama threw a number of people at our project, analyzed our documentation, learned our business processes, and provided us a comprehensive analysis and recommendation for the ERP system that we ultimately selected. Their analysis of the implementers was also on time and on target.

I feel privileged to write a reference letter for Panorama Consulting Solutions in regard to both its methodology approach and the quality of its consultants.
I worked with Panorama consultants throughout the entire software selection process. For our company, it was important to not only document our processes, but also to improve our processes, prior to implementing a software package. Panorama consultants traveled to our site several times and conducted sessions with our team to ensure we captured all of our key requirements. In addition, they facilitated workshops that enabled us to define and optimize our business processes to align with our company goals and position us for future growth. Through business process management, we were able to provide desired processes to the software vendor. This enabled us to mitigate our risk and reduced our overall costs by implementing our software solution 20 percent faster than anticipated.
Implementing a software package can be a difficult process with many associated risks. The Panorama team helped us address the risks and positioned us for a successful implementation. It is not only important to take the appropriate steps when selecting a software vendor, but to have an unbiased partner you trust help guide you through the process. I highly recommend Panorama as a trusted partner for all ERP software projects.

I have had the fortune of working with Panorama Consulting over the past several years, beginning in 2006 when they helped source training consultants for our first SAP Implementation Project (FI/HCM). From the start, I found Eric to be responsive and professional, and was impressed by his ability to secure us excellent resources at a reasonable cost.
With the success of that first partnership, we quickly realized that Eric and his team at Panorama Consulting could offer our company more than simply finding consultants to fill the gaps in our training and organizational change capability. Instead, we hired them to train us to lead the Organizational Change, Training and Communications efforts internally for these major SAP projects. Eric developed a customized training program for us and flew out to spend a week training our team on it . . .
Eric and his team at Panorama Consulting are trusted partners. They are knowledgeable and provide personalized solutions for their clients. After working with them for only a short time, it became clear that their number one priority is ensuring their clients’ implementation success. And speaking from personal experience, they exceed that goal time and time again.

I am pleased to write this testimonial regarding United Electric Control’s experience with Panorama Consulting Solutions for our ERP system selection process.
United Electric’s ERP Team was pleased and impressed with both the methodology and people we dealt with throughout the project. Their knowledge and experience was extremely helpful as they guided us throughout our system selection process. They were very thorough and flexible in developing a plan that suited our needs and unique requirements. The planned work and process were spelled out in detail in our contract and the statement of work objectives and expectations were met in full. I was most impressed with Panorama’s flexibility in adapting to UE’s specific needs and occasional variations in project pacing. They showed professionalism in all dealing with us and the members of various ERP system companies; taking into account company size, styles, and personalities. A major PCS contribution in this project was its overall guidance and recommendations during the ERP vendor product demonstrations and final contract review and specification.

Panorama’s process for identifying long list/short list solutions selection was effective and reflected a clear understanding of our company’s requirements.
Jason LaChance, CFO
MAXON had had very poor experiences with consultants in the past. I believe that Panorama went a long way to improving the image of consultants everywhere. The big difference that I saw was the usefulness of your deliverables. We saw that your deliverables were actionable, which is something they were missing from consultants in the past.
Bill Moore, Vice President of Enterprise Improvement
MAXON Lift Corporation
Panorama took the time to understand our business and delivered excellent work.

Panorama’s selection methodology was structured and comprehensive ensuring that all appropriate elements required for a successful selection process were considered and effectively executed. At the same time Panorama’s approach was flexible enough to take into account the specific characteristics of our business so that activities could be adjusted where needed to optimize examining the appropriate fit between our company and the new ERP systems being evaluated. While managing the process, Panorama’s staff displayed a high level of professionalism and attention to detail and its coordination of the varied activities between our company resources and prospective vendors was critical to keeping the project on track.
