Can anyone recommend a very capable NetSuite partner for a difficult project?

The project involves migrating from JDE to NetSuite for a discrete manufacturing company (valves) in 2 domestic locations. Need help getting live on NetSuite and some integration work with home grown applications as well as . Who is the "go to" partner/consultant for NetSuite in the manufacturing space?

At the Proformative Conference last March, I co-presented with Dan Feely of TSI, located here in suburban Chicago. I worked with Dan on a complex Oracle implementation when I was CFO of TravelCLICK and the experience was uniformly positive. I have not worked with Dan's firm on a NetSuite project, but I know TSI has extensive expertise on the NetSuite platform. I would suggest you touch base with TSI. Dan can be reached at dfeelyattransforming [dot] com.

Thanks for the kind words Scott. As it relates to NetSuite, (not wanting to be promotional, merely addressing the question), TSI has led about 6 or 7 NetSuite implementations including the largest, global NetSuite implementation.

Depending on your client's geographical location and preference for the implementation methodology and approach, I would recommend Sikich in Chicago (Jim Drumm is the contact); and McGladrey (Matt Kenney in Denver is the primary contact). If your client is in another geo and wants to interview a local firm, please let me know. Thanks for asking! GAP

Oh, and one additional idea. If your client will require integration services between NetSuite and non-NetSuite applications, I would highly recommend contacting Celigo (Erik Smith). They have extensive experience with a wide variety of NetSuite projects. Good luck! GAP

At my last job, as an Accounting Manager at digital advertising start-up, we used Celigo for our NetSuite implementation / integration and had great success. The project manager was great to work with and the consultants were very knowledgeable (especially compared with some of the other implementation partners we interviewed).

Our technology subsidary has worked with Tony Neser at Blytheco and they have been spectacular. Netsuite is their bread & butter and I'm sure they have done a project or two like yours already. Also all the clients I have had interaction with have been either in Manufacturing or wholesale/distribution.
