"When I began the process of looking at how to marry the Sage ERP MAS 90 system with the cloud-based systems I was writing, I didn’t like the product and was worried that we wouldn’t be able to accomplish what we needed to do," admits Paul Eaklor, Chief Information Architect for NTR Bullion Group LLC (NBG).

That unfavorable first impression was to change – drastically. "As we went through the process with DeRosa Mangold, I began to feel encouraged with the care and degree to which Mike DeRosa delved in to understand what we needed," shares Eaklor. "The DeRosa Mangold team spent time understanding our business, and as they began to show me the ways we could have Sage ERP MAS 90 work with our other solutions, my confidence in the product grew – specifically the solid architectural framework and the impressive flexibility. I became confident that we could mold the product to our needs. The Sage Business Object Interface together with the ODBC driver was the primary enabler of our software integration."

NBG conducts precious metal trading working with thousands of wholesalers. Precious metal trading is a complicated business: pricing fluctuates throughout the day, the metals are sold in a variety of forms such as coins and bars; inventory must be received, stored, and delivered; and NBG makes actual purchases as well as precious metal futures purchases. Eaklor manages this information through MarketMaker, a custom-developed application on Force.com. His custom application, which includes one major monthly update and as many as five releases during the course of a week, must be developed quickly and deployed rapidly.

"What I respect and value about our business partnership with DeRosa Mangold is that they are dedicated to analyzing the situation first, and appropriately applying technology second. In our case, this meant helping us with our existing system, versus the more costly alternative of upgrading us to a larger system which would have meant more money for them."

"As a technologist, I have always been concerned about standard solutions that require customization and costly, ongoing consulting work," says Eaklor. Eaklor and the DeRosa Mangold team worked together to make changes to Sage ERP MAS 90 using Sage Business Object Interface. Sage Business Object Interface allowed them to make enhancements to Sage ERP MAS 90 without touching the underlying source code. Typically, when changes are made to source code, the software cannot be easily updated and users are restricted to that particular version until additional programming is done on the new version. NBG is positioned to easily upgrade software versions without worrying about the integrity of the standard system or the modifications they have made.

"Sage ERP MAS 90 gets unwarranted criticism for using older technology," points out Eaklor. "However, it has a solid architectural framework and great flexibility. I found the Sage Business Object Interface very simple to understand and build software integration around. The work that we did with DeRosa Mangold allowed me to enhance the accounting system to address many of the needs of the accounting department and the management team."

Eaklor notes that he has additional projects for which he will be seeking DeRosa Mangold’s assistance. "Mike DeRosa and his team have helped us to enhance the system thereby optimizing our business. It is a great help to have a true business partner like DeRosa Mangold.
