Chris Gherardini, President and CEO of Turnkey Technologies, Inc. will be present at this year’s FABTECH in Chicago, and you can meet with him one-on-one to learn how Microsoft Dynamics 365 can empower your manufacturing business.
Chris founded Turnkey in 1994 to provide enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer engagement software. Since then, he has grown the organization to more than 50 team members and expanded its solution catalog to include Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement applications, Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP and Sage Intacct.
Chris has a background well-suited to delivering business solutions and services to manufacturing clients. With a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Mathematics from University of Missouri – St. Louis, he has extensive experience in software consultation, solution architecture and modeling, business intelligence, project management, upgrades, implementation services, customization, data conversion and integration. With these skills, he and his team of technical and functional consultants have helped dozens of manufacturing clients digitally transform their businesses.
“Manufacturers in particular have unique needs when it comes to ERP software, especially today,” says Chris. “Beyond robust accounting features, manufacturers need software that can be custom-fit to their operations, from sourcing, production and distribution to forecasting, inventory tracking and integration with industry specific software.”
To eschew a one-size-fits-all approach in favor of right-sized implementations, Chris has built a team of experts with deep industry perspectives in addition to Microsoft Dynamics competencies.
“One of the core differentiators of Turnkey is that we employ industry experts to deliver this software. That sets us apart from other partners, where the litmus test for consultants tends to be how well they know Dynamics without any context regarding industry. It’s one thing to know Dynamics, but it’s another thing to have a proven track record of configuring Dynamics to unique business requirements. At Turnkey, we pride ourselves on both qualifications.”
Chris and other representatives from Turnkey Technologies will be located at Booth A3216.
