    Challenges the Client Faced

    GSI's Solution

    Like many companies experiencing rapid growth, Envirolite was
    having serious pain with QuickBooks (they were using QuickBooks for accounting, and Excel and Dropbox for cloud-based storage). “QuickBooks essentially has no tools for inventory management,” says Nate Szymkowicz, Logistics Manager at Envirolite. “Well, they exist, but not for what we do.” Envirolite is a fabricator, and they take raw material and convert it into specialty foam products. “There isn’t a simple way to document that entire process in QuickBooks,” says Szymkowicz. “It’s hard to tell what happened in between taking the raw material and turning it into a finished product.”

    Envirolite needed an all-in-one business management solution
    that could provide real-time visibility into their operational and
    financial performance, and a solution provider that could align theirimplementation to these business objectives. Enter NetSuite and GSI. 

    Once GSI was on board, the Envirolite team was much more confident about their NetSuite implementation. “The initial discovery session that we had with GSI was an immediate sign that this was going to be different,” says Szymkowicz. “The attention to detail in that first meeting, the set up of the statement of work and our business requirements, it was a nice change of pace from what we had seen with NetSuite professional services. Our users had the same feeling, and it changed the level of confidence as a company that hey, we can do this. Whereas before with NetSuite professional services, there was this dread every time we had to work on something because it was like, ‘well, are we going to have to explain this to somebody else in a month? And are they going to tell us to do something different?’ GSI gave us a sense of direction, and we’re live now, so you can tell that it worked.”
