—Cole Hall, Brad Hall & Associates


Challenge

Brad Hall & Associates engaged 360 Cloud Solutions to assist in the implementation and customization of NetSuite as a unifying enterprise CRM/ERP platform for their seven subsidiaries. While BHA had developed a sophisticated operations system for managing Fuel Management orders and purchases (BOS), the accounting and financial/tax reporting for all other subsidiaries were previously performed manually using MS Excel spreadsheets.

Solution

Initially, the plan was to implement their subsidiaries over approximately four phases with several companies going live each phase. However, Phase I was spent implementing BHA Fuel Management, with the remaining budget allocated for discovery on six additional subsidiaries. Phase II was spent implementing Teton Petroleum Transport, LP Propane, Foundation, E&H Farms, Terra Energy, and Teton Technology.

Brad Hall & Associates now has a consolidated, secure process for managing A/R and A/P processes and the ability to consolidate financial statements by the subsidiary. Further, they now enjoy the benefits of having a single system that can manage customers, vendors, related transactions, and reporting for all subsidiaries.
