  • (1888PressRelease) October 11, 2011 - PITTSBURGH, PA -- "Newton Enterprise was created to meet the under-served mid-market need for full systems integration services, business strategy, and business process improvement," said Newton, a company owner. "Mid-sized companies have a need for top-notch project services that cost less than tier-one firms. Newton Enterprise will meet that need through its full suite of value-added consulting services, with an initial focus in enterprise resource planning (ERP), interactive media services (IMS), and enterprise performance management (EPM)."

    Systems integration services have always been offered by Newton Consulting, but will now be delivered primarily by Newton Enterprise. According to Newton, "Newton Consulting's business model is designed for us to operate more as a long-term business process partner, particularly for companies that want to outsource portions of their IT and HR functions. Newton Enterprise is being launched to better serve and focus on clients who have short-term project needs and require expertise in the areas of business and IT strategy, business systems implementation, interactive media services, and business process improvement."

    According to information technology research company Gartner, Inc., regarding ERP implementations at mid-market companies*, "Shortage or lack of skilled resources for implementation and consulting have been the most frequent complaint across most of the vendors. Optimal support of the users' industry- and company-specific requirements was sought after, but not always delivered, which has caused delays and lack of quality in implementations and rollout projects."

    "Newton Enterprise will distinguish itself by providing the much-needed business and industry skills that are often lacking in systems implementation projects," said Newton.

    Initially, Newton Enterprise will focus on the Pittsburgh, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic marketplace. The company offers a unique value proposition by taking away the risk of long-term overhead in project operational expenses while delivering services through a values-driven work ethic and unique business model that ensures excellence.

    Newton Enterprise named Chris Hafner as president to lead the company's operations from its Pittsburgh headquarters. Hafner brings more than 20 years of experience as a senior strategy consultant and ERP program manager to his role with Newton Enterprise.

    "Sometimes a company can struggle taking on a project because of high costs and long timelines," said Hafner. "Because of the high level of experience of our teams, we can dramatically improve a project's timeline, reduce costs, and close the project so there is no long-term overhead."

    "Companies know their business vision," he said. "We just help them get there faster."

    "Newton Consulting will still go to market providing a full suite of information technology consulting services," said Newton. "However, full systems implementations and other project services will be provided through our partner affiliate Newton Enterprise, and it is great knowing that Chris and his team will be there providing this capability while sharing a common customer-focused, values-driven business model."
