Panorama Consulting Solutions Hires New ERP Expert

Craig Wright

Panorama Consulting Solutions, the world’s leading independent ERP consulting firm, recently hired Craig Wright as Manager within Client Services. Wright is experienced with ERP implementations, especially those involving Microsoft Dynamics products.

Wright also has led organizations through software selection and partner selection. He has served clients in the service, retail, e-commerce and manufacturing industries.

“I’m looking forward to working with Panorama on global projects across a variety of industries,” said Wright. “In my new position, I will manage teams to complete projects on budget and on schedule.”

While Wright has extensive consulting experience, he also has been in his clients’ shoes as the implementing organization. This has contributed to his expertise in strategic planning, operations management, project management, team building, process improvement, vendor sourcing and software development cycles.

“I enjoy collaborating with stakeholders at all levels of the organization,” said Wright. “I strive to build relationships and enable organizations to address technical pain points.”

In his most recent position, Wright assisted with redesigning business processes while managing implementations of new enterprise systems. Wright’s approach to ERP projects aligns with Panorama’s vision, which is to strategically deploy technology, so it aligns with each organization’s business goals.

Panorama Consulting Solutions Selected as One of the Ten Fastest Growing Technology Solution Providers

Panorama Consulting Solutions Selected as One of the Ten Fastest Growing Technology Solution Providers

The Technology Headlines selected Panorama as one of the ten fastest growing digital technology solution providers for 2019. 

Organizations today have more digital technology choices than ever before. Many organizations seek guidance from experts, like Panorama, that have experience across a wide variety of ERP systems.

Instead of providing technology directly to organizations, Panorama provides strategies for selecting and implementing technology. Their ERP consultants guide organizations in aligning technology with people and processes.

“Panorama is growing its customer base by focusing on the market’s evolving needs,” said Vanessa Davison, Managing Partner of Panorama. “Organizations are feeling the pressure to grow through strategic M&As and keep up with technology advancements.”

Since organizations are focusing on the customer experience, value steam optimization and worker enablement, so is Panorama. While the firm still focuses on ERP, its approach has become more top-down in nature, focusing on strategy alignment before technology selection.

“We realized the need to expand our service offerings to integrate people, processes and technology,” said Davison. “We saw that the most successful ERP initiatives were aligned with organization’s business strategies.”

Panorama Consulting Solutions Hires “New” Director of Expert Witness Services

Panorama Consulting Solutions, the world’s leading independent ERP consulting firm, recently hired Bill Baumann as Director of Expert Witness Services. Baumann was previously with Panorama for two and a half years, playing a role in business development and serving as a Director of Client Services, overseeing Panorama ERP software selection and implementation projects, as well as expert witness engagements.

Baumann has more than 35 years of experience in marketing strategy, direct sales, account management and C-level management. In his new role, Baumann will forge relationships

with prospects interested in any of Panorama’s expert services, including expert witness testimony, project recovery and independent verification and validation.

“Our expert services are poised to make the jump to the next level,” said Baumann. “I’m excited to contribute to the development of one of Panorama’s most valuable service areas.”

SAP vs. Oracle Case Study

SAP and Oracle both invest heavily in cloud technology. However, our client was skeptical about cloud scalability and unsure if the products were mature and proven.

Baumann’s expert witness background has contributed to his holistic perspective when it comes to investigating the causes of failed ERP implementations. He is skilled at identifying root causes that extend beyond technology, and he considers failure points related to change management and business process management. Baumann has ERP implementation experience on both the client and vendor side, giving him an understanding of both parties involved in ERP lawsuits.

“I’m glad to be joining such a talented and dedicated team,” said Baumann. “Our combined expertise will undoubtedly help companies succeed in their digital transformation initiatives.”

Baumann will be participating in Panorama’s upcoming ERP Boot Camp on May 22-23 in Chicago, IL.
