Quotebeam Case Study
ERP Integration and Platform Architecture Strategy Advisory
Learn how Quotebeam integrated with multiple ERP systems and solidified its go-to-market strategy and platform design.
Despite working with other ERP consultants, Quotebeam struggled to make progress in integrating several ERP systems with its platform.

The OEM ERP support rarely helped with the design questions that Quotebeam had. And typically they would send out links and PDFs, with a procedural description.
