Implementing a Four-Month FSCM Lift-and-Shift Project

SpearMC partnered with Harkins Builders to provide a sustainable solution for a new Financials, Procure to Pay and HCM integrated platform due to aging infrastructure, multiple siloed SaaS applications, inability to scale and lack of security.

The Challenge
  • No interest in on-premise infrastructures
  • Behind on upgrades and patches and limited resources
  • No mobile technology capabilities or secure remote ERP login
  • Not interested in System Administration. Only interested in being users of a robust, scalable enterprise grade financials solution.
Services Provided
  • Current state review and third-party application inventory
  • OCI Tenancy Creation
  • Demonstrations and Training
  • Network Connectivity
  • Architecture and DR Design and Build
  • Installed, Configured and Tested Third-Party Middleware apps

  • IT Help Desk Partnership Model
The Results
