Why are we here?

By | About NexTec | No Comments

Our clients often ask why we started NexTec. Here’s why.

Years ago, when we started what later became NexTec Group people used to ask us – why are you starting a company?  There were two basic answers to that question. The first is that all of us had worked for other ERP consulting firms, and felt we could do better. Few VARs at the time offered much beyond basic implementation services for Microsoft Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains), SL (formerly Solomon) and Sage MAS 500. Our plan was to offer implementation, programming, report writing, training and more.  We’ve continued that tradition by updating our offerings with CRM, Business Intelligence, and Sharepoint, and we always try to offer a compelling mix of products and services to our clients.  If you can think of something we are missing, please let us know!

Beyond the “how” we were doing this differently, I’d like to mention the why. Eric Frank, our President and one of the cofounders used to say, “We want to take care of our people, and take care of our clients.” I would tell people “Have fun, make money, and do good work.” A pretty straightforward description of what we hope to accomplish here. We’ve been following those philosophies since 1996, and they continue to serve us well.
