How the Wallace Group Save time and Money
- Functional Applications - Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP)
- Human Resources
- Cloud Planning, Design & Implementation Services
When The Wallace Group’s servers crashed in fall 2020, they knew it was time to move their business to the cloud. They worked with Deltek to quickly move their Deltek Ajera Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution to the Deltek Cloud. In just a few days, their systems were back up running, and they could get back to managing projects, creating invoices, and processing payroll.
With overall responsibility for Human Resources, Accounting and Information Technology (IT) in her role, Bordieri has seen significant cost, security and time saving benefits by moving to the cloud.
The Wallace Group are recognized geosystem experts in the Pacific Northwest. They provide practical, applied earth and environmental science solutions to clients in the transportation, water, energy, commercial, industrial, institutional and governmental markets.
The multidisciplinary consulting services company of 17 provides services throughout the project life cycle from initial environmental studies to project plans/specifications and International Building Code (IBC) inspection and testing during construction.
Work Efficiently and Effectively from Anywhere
The move to the cloud also addressed an ongoing and significant business challenge that the firm was struggling with since the pandemic hit in 2020 – effectively supporting their distributed workforce. “Our on-premises solution couldn’t fully support our teams when we had to temporarily close our offices due to COVID-19. We simply couldn’t complete all of our work effectively without being in the office,” said Bordieri.
Cost Savings and Increased Security
The most significant cost savings for The Wallace Group was eliminating their in-house hardware. They no longer need to buy a new server every five years and worry about it crashing early like their last one. Plus, they don’t have to stress about the cost of outsourcing frequent and expensive system updates to their external IT vendor to keep their systems secure and up-to-date.
