Kansas-based steel pipe manufacturer, Mid America Pipe Fabricating and Supply Co., Inc., selected abas ERP software for its flexibility with customizations and abas’ ability to do effective onsite implementations.
Nik Parsons, Treasurer at Mid America Pipe, said selecting a new software system was not about finding the solution with the lowest cost, but choosing something they were comfortable with. With abas ERP, the implementation team devotes a large portion of their time to being onsite to ensure their clients fully understand how to make the software work for them.
“abas is going to spend 95 days of the implementation process on site during a 6 month period,” said Parsons. “The runner up was only going to spend 30.”
Parsons emphasized the importance of finding a team of people he could trust when selecting a new software system. “When Joe told us how long the process would take, the steps we needed to take, and how much everything was going to cost, I could tell that it was an honest amount of time and money and he didn’t want to just give me the low number,” said Parsons.
abas wanted the job to be done right.
“abas works as a true partner with our customers, ensuring that they are getting the most out of their ERP system, from initial implementation and tailoring the system to fit their needs, through training, ongoing optimizations, and upgrades,” said Alan Salton, President of abas USA. “We look forward to being by their side as Mid America Pipe moves into the next exciting phase of their business.”
With abas ERP, Parsons said Mid America Pipe hopes to improve on internal processes such as time tracking capabilities, as well as external processes including a faster and more precise way of estimating jobs.
