ATTACK THE NEED
It takes just hours or days for me to understand your needs and develop a shared vision for your project. My MBA and success as an entrepreneur, manager, and consultant means you can trust that I think in terms of a complete solution, and not just a bunch of code. I have worked with customers in almost every industry since starting as a consultant at Price Waterhouse, so you can rest assured I’ll have relevant insight for your project.

VISUALIZE THE SOLUTION
Development should happen “outside-in.” This requires visualizing the user experience and reporting needs, defining productivity goals, and sometimes choosing new technologies to accomplish old objectives. For example, deprecating the use of older technologies (like NAS) or using SQL Server and Excel integration in better ways are good for replacing older processes.

BUILD A PROTOTYPE
Customers respond to design better if they can see a prototype versus paper specifications. Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an excellent prototyping tool. I like to show the data model and user interface to confirm your needs are being met and to produce a better estimate and project plan.

CODE WITH INTEGRITY
While completing my MBA and interning with Price Waterhouse, I discovered a natural gift for learning new technologies rapidly and using technology as a tool to solve customer problems. Programs are like paintings to me, allowing me to fix bugs while writing sound, structured code. My programming mantra is, “do what’s right, not what’s easy.”

TEST THE HECK OUT OF IT
Nothing, nothing, nothing is more frustrating to a client than to try out a new program, and learn that they just became a tester instead of a user. Testing is NOT your job. My ability to switch hats from programmer to end user allows me to challenge and fix my code. Your job should be to verify and use the work product.

DELIVER A WORKING SOLUTION
And that completes the project. Whether you’re looking for a new feature, an upgrade, or a fix to an existing mess, you deserve a responsive, successful professional and functioning software solution. If you need an experienced and accomplished person for your NAV project, whether you’re a customer or a partner looking to shore up your project team, email me today.

Let’s attack your needs and get you running.
