“As a growing organization, Braun Intertec needed a technology platform that could help our firm streamline critical business processes and gain deeper insight around the performance of our business,” explained Mike Anders, Chief Information Officer at Braun Intertec. “We evaluated ERP systems from many of the leading ERP software providers in our industry.
