  • Will this platform be able to meet your current needs?
  • Will it fit within the budget?

Besides, who you choose to implement your system can make all the difference.

  • Will they prove to be reliable?
  • Where will they leave you ten years from now?

One company found themselves asking those very questions. Now they are happy to report that they have found an ERP platform and an implementation company that is just the right fit.

Frederick Block, Brick & Stone (FBBS) is a family run business that has become a leading distributor of masonry and hardscape products in Virginia. Their legacy ERP system was very limited, and managing inventory for multiple locations was increasingly difficult. They knew it was time for a modern ERP system that would allow them to grow.

The Acumatica Benefit

The company formed an internal ERP evaluation team and identified about 40 potential ERP systems. After extensive research, they selected Acumatica. They felt that "Acumatica was a better long-term play." It could be made to do all the things needed, but it also had the flexibility to go above and beyond what they expected. Plus, the unlimited user license model meant more people in the company could be included. In the end, they felt Acumatica was a system that could grow with them.

Why CAL?

FBBS chose CAL Business Solutions as their partner to implement their new ERP system. Why? They felt CAL had the reliability and professionalism they valued. If Acumatica needed to be customized for their specific industry needs, the team at CAL was able to create that functionality.

Notice why Steve Slaughter, President/CEO of FBBS, says he chose to work with CAL:

"We chose to work with CAL Business Solutions because we liked the fact that George took a personal interest in us, in the process. He seemed like the type of person that we wanted to do business with. And based on the references we spoke with, CAL seemed to have a very good reputation in the industry."

Would Steve Slaughter and FBBS recommend CAL to other companies?

"George and CAL, made it right, which is very important to me. There are always going to be things that don't work out as planned. At the end of the day, George stood by what he said they would do and did it. Not everybody does that. So yes, I would recommend CAL Business Solutions."

Acumatica was the right choice for this building supply distributor. And by choosing CAL Business Solutions to implement it, FBBS is happy that they have a modern ERP system that will scale with their growing business.
