As Affordable Solar began taking on bigger and more complex projects, their team realized that their existing solutions – NetSuite for inventory and QuickBooks for accounting – were unable to scale for growth. In addition, as the complexity of their projects increased, so did the length of their project timelines. Affordable Solar needed a scalable solution that would automate and integrate to keep projects – no matter their size – on time and on budget.
Affordable Solar brought on board an experienced Chief Operating Officer, Teresa Johansen, to develop a growth strategy. Her first course of action was to conduct a search for a fully integrated solution that would standardize their processes. They evaluated recommendations from various online software review services and referrals to narrow their short list to four vendors. They initially felt CMiC was “too big” for a company their size, but it was added to the short list as the only best-in-class, fully integrated solution capable of handling the complete cycle, from project conception to completion. Read the case study to learn why Affordable Solar chose CMiC and how deploying the platform has helped the company set the stage for growth over the next 20 years.
