SIS: Software Multiple Complex Projects with Proven Software

Maxwell Thomas, Partner, EVP Sales & Marketing
Professional services are critical to the success of the economy as it supports businesses of all sizes in a wide range of industries. The major challenges that CIOs from this landscape face are around mobility and finding a total solution that integrates effectively while addressing the diverse needs in their business. Although there are numerous point solutions in this Industry, most companies that purchase these solutions fail to take advantage of newer versions due to lack of integration. “We address these issues through our Dynamics AX solution, filling the gaps with SIS IP for Projects and Union Payroll for the Construction Market, as well as mobile time entry and equipment billing. We have also built a project and document management solution built on Microsoft SharePoint to fill gaps outside of ERP,” says Maxwell Thomas, Partner, EVP Sales, and Marketing, SIS Software. SIS focuses on delivering ERP, CRM and Project Management in the professional Services Industry, which is one of the 6 major verticals that Microsoft Business Applications are focusing on.

SIS is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner that provides and implements financial and operational software for Contracting and Professional Services focused companies. The company continues to develop and deliver ERP, CRM and PM solutions for project and service oriented firms today, with an emphasis on ease of use and flexibility while meeting industry functional requirements. SIS’s Microsoft Dynamics AX is a comprehensive business management solution that provides midsize to larger organizations, end-to-end industry specific functionality, including robust financials, supply chain, project accounting, and customer relationship management along with a complete set of tools for workflow and analytics. SIS’s Advanced Payroll for Dynamics AX is unique and one of a kind product in the way it handles time entry, union and certified payroll. The SIS solution written in AX can feed the AX payroll module or an outsourced provider, and feed labor data into projects as well.
“Microsoft recently improved ERP cloud offerings in Azure and other platforms. Although our industry has been a bit of a laggard when it comes to adopting cloud technology, we now find that our clients are starting to move more rapidly in that direction, and are happy we have those cloud and mobile solutions to offer,” adds Thomas. “We have just finalized our Project Management solution powered by SharePoint offering in the cloud, and are very excited about bringing this solution called “Compass” to customers in a less expensive managed environment that allows a faster ROI on their investment.” Many ERP systems do not address document management and workflow very well, although the industry demands document and drawing libraries that can properly manage revisions and workflow approvals.

SIS is focused on customer satisfaction and constantly strives to improve the implementation process and response-turnaround time on customer support and small projects. “We use our own Compass solution on SharePoint to manage projects and tasks for our customers, and MSCRM to manage support calls into our 800 support centers,” delineates Thomas.

The company understands that technology is complex, but business users want it to be simple, quick, and easy. Often analytics tools, although powerful, can be generic in nature and require a tremendous amount of set up. “Our newest focus is basic analytics easy for all of our users and to ensure that the role centers and dashboards in Dynamics give a complete picture of the business focused on our Industry KPIs,” concludes Thomas.
