“We don’t have a traditional IT department…… I’ve worked with a few different consultants over the last 3 years, after I found Practical Technical Solutions (An independent professional services provider), I will always go to them first with a need. They got to my projects in short order, knew exactly what I was talking about most of the time and if they didn’t, it was easy to explain to them what I needed. The rate is better and the work is more efficient than I have found elsewhere. I would highly recommend PTS (An independent professional services provider) to anyone using Epicor®.”

— Dudek & Bock • Steel Manufacturing Industry

“We have used PTS for several of our Epicor® needs.  They have helped with our Epicor® implementation through training of our staff.  They have also helped with more technical aspects such as helping us set-up a secondary application server.  I have found PTS to be extremely knowledgeable and professional, and quick to help when needed.”

— Seymour Tubing Inc. • Tubing Components Industry

“The other service we used from PTS was a training session that lasted a few days on site. We used one of their trainers, Jeremy, who was very talented in Epicor® but also had a naturally good communication style about him. He taught a few of our people the basics of writing Crystal Reports out of Epicor®. We plan on using PTS as a resource in Epicor® as we move forward.”

— Precision Marshall Steel Company • Steel Manufacturing Industry

“General Formulations is a mid-sized manufacturing company currently using Epicor® for our manufacturing system. We have used PTS for a number of tasks including custom SSRS reports, custom dashboards, BPM’s, and Go Live Support. I have found PTS knowledgeable, talented and extremely capable in the work that they have done for our company. I have worked with Jim, Sam, Jarrad, and Glenn and found them all to be consummate professionals with great attitude and ability. I can recommend PTS with the greatest confidence to anyone looking for top-notch help in implementation and customization of Epicor®.”


“I do want to say I have been very impressed with PTS and in helping us deal with this problem. (Our consultant) has been great and I know he hasn’t been alone in assisting us on this. Your help is greatly appreciated, and PTS is a great partner.”

— General Formulations • Pressure Sensitive Films Industry

“So far Jim and a group from PTS have come in to do a CRP/training session for two days that was extremely helpful. They have also developed and installed a customized program to assist in automated Order Entry and processing, shipment entry and processing, and have developed customized SSRS reports. They have always addressed our concerns in a timely manner, and are very conscientious about costs, and very detailed in their work. 

I definitely recommend PTS as a partner for Epicor® technical services and continue to use them. I only wish I had found them sooner. I will continue to go to them for enhancements, training and consulting as there is no doubt they will help us maximize our investment and minimize our time spent implementing various Epicor® solutions.” 

— Unique Sports Products, Inc. • Sporting Goods Industry

“Morton Manufacturing utilizes Epicor® for MRP functionality. PTS helped us through projects when we ran into roadblocks.  Their advanced expertise was more than enough for the problems and concerns we were facing.  They are well versed in visual basic and C# and they completed our projects very quickly.

The results of their work were exactly what we wanted, and allowed us to continue moving forward.  We haven’t had any problems and we plan to use PTS again in the future.”
