PROFIT FROM ERP – THE FOCUS
From 2011-2019, Profit From ERP was an independent ERP Software Selection Consulting group led by Gene Hammons. The single focus: work with clients to increase revenues, cut costs and boost productivity using software projects and organizational change management. This is still our primary and only focus. We believe all else follows if you keep your eye on that ball. Given our client’s past experience with the implementation success and subsequent business growth – we opted to work primarily with NetSuite clients in 2019.
There is some value in un-biased software selection – and we also realize NetSuite may not be the right solution for every business.
That is why we now have a referral list of other Software Selection Consultants – who’s profiles and pictures will soon be listed on this page. We are currently under discussion with existing consultants whom we know and respect from years in the business to join the Profit From ERP website as we hope to evolve to more of a portal for best practices in ERP of all types – sort of a Drudge Report for all things ERP.
We are currently in discussion with consultants in California, Seattle, Florida and other geographic locations. Eide Bailly also maintains a Software Selection Practice.
Gene Hammons will also continue to work in multi-vendor evaluations for clients who need additional help in this area. While not pretending to be completely unbiased, we do believe a great evaluation will result in a great decision, and of course have the unfair advantage of NetSuite being selected more often than not. So it is in our best interests that open honest discussions with multiple, experienced vendors will always be a service to our clients.
Gene Hammons, MBA
Focused solely on ERP since 1998, Hammons has been involved with over 400 ERP projects in one aspect or another – and for clients in a variety of industries. Multiple certifications and employment with Oracle NetSuite, Lawson, Infor, Sage, Microsoft, Ross, Dassault and others led to an independent Software Selection Consulting Practice from 2011 – 2019 and was the genesis of the Profit From ERP website, concept, methodology and podcast. A 2018 Leading Writer for the tech side of the site Quora.com, Hammons has over 2.1m readers of all things ERP.
While an independent consultant, Hammons watched the rise of NetSuite and saw more and more clients selecting NetSuite regardless of industry or competing software projects. In mid 2019, he opted to join forces with his leading NetSuite implementation resource, Eide Bailly Technology. As a Senior Manager, he focuses on a client practice of Manufacturing, Distribution, Financials as well as continuing to pioneer the use of cloud ERP for emerging pharmaceutical and life sciences companies, leading that practice at Eide Bailly.
He is based in Phoenix AZ, supporting multiple Eide Bailly offices in Arizona, Colorado, California and surrounding areas.

Since 2014, Eide Bailly Technology Consulting (EB) has been the go-to team for all things NetSuite. Every Profit From ERP implementation where NetSuite was involved was handled by the EB team.
In that time, we came to expect on-time, on-budget NetSuite implementations – most of Eide Bailly’s were under budget and since client initial expectations for go-live are traditionally unrealistic, bringing those projects in on time would be considered extraordinary as well.
At first, we thought it must be something about NetSuite that made this performance the norm rather than the exception. While NetSuite does have functionality far in advance of traditional ERP, what we actually found was the following:
Eide Bailly has been in the top 5 of all NetSuite’s 1,200 or so resellers worldwide since joining the NetSuite Partner team.
Eide Bailly has been Partner of the Year 4 of the last 5 years.
The list of accolades goes on – however – safe to say, with millions of dollars of client business moving through Profit From ERP’s client base of software selection – involving every major ERP brand in multiple implementations – we could have chosen to merge with any ERP, and multiple partners as well as direct offers.
Eide Bailly was the overwhelming choice – and because of how we saw clients who evaluated EB choose them time and time again, we believe you too will find their service far above the industry norm. For the whole story, firstname.lastname@example.org
