RKL eSolutions has added former e2b teknologies project manager and business development director Russ Griffith to its Sage 500 ERP and growing Sage X3 team of consultants.
Griffith spent the past six years with e2b teknologies, as well as several years as a Sage/MAS 500 manager with Sage.
RKL has been expanding its Sage 500 practice, despite recent announcements regarding plans to sunset development of the product, most recently acquiring over 100 new Sage 500 ERP customers and five consultants. Three of those consultants - Josh Gettman, Donna Gallardo, and Stuart Blumenthal - are dual-authorized and certified for both Sage 500 and X3.
“While we remain totally committed to the support of Sage 500 ERP for many years to come, we realize that that a good portion of our customers will want to migrate to a more modern, growing ERP platform like Sage ERP X3,” said RKL president Joe Noll. “That’s why we're focused on adding consultants [like Gruffith] to our team that have vast experience with both Sage 500 and Sage X3 in order to help those customers, who want to migrate sooner rather than later, with a smooth and seamless transition.”
Griffith noted that he has had a “strong working relationship” with Noll and RKL during his tenure at e2b and the move was made based on a “growth opportunity” offered to him.
“I was looking for opportunities to work with new people and we worked out the details of that move. I had known Joe well and the timing was right to make this move,” said Griffith. “I joined not only because of their commitment to Sage 500 but they want to expand more into X3 and are doing more training behind that as well, so I’ll be involved.”
RKL eSolutions, which is comprised of the former Reinsel Kuntz Lesher IT services team, represents Sage products including 100, 500 X3 Pro ERP and FAS.
