Cadmus Communications (Printing)
Demonstrated strong organizational skills in creating an enterprise wide technical task force for transforming legacy systems into a successful ERP implementation process across two companies.  Initiated an architecture for implementing a print specific manufacturing ERP system.  

The United Company (Implemented five ERP systems)
Coal Mining (United Coal Company)
Internally developed an ERP system for a $200 million coal mining operations.  The scope of the project included the following modules: production, marketing, sales (CRM), lease management, inventory tracking, EDI with CSX, quality, permit violation tracking, contract management and order entry.  The application was written in Powerhouse a 4GL by Cognos.  It was integrated to the corporate financial system.  The project was completed in less than two years with only four dedicated IT resources.  The user community included over 500 users.  A spin off benefit was I established a software enterprise under the umbrella of The United Company to market and sell a module (mining permit and violations) of the ERP system we developed.  
Oil and Gas (Star Oil and Gas)
Independently directed strategic planning for our Oil and Gas Company in Calgary.  Successful in translating the business goals of top company executive's into a strategic technology vision.  The successful implementation of an ERP system followed this vision and allowed Star Oil to be the top financial performer in the corporation in 1996. Excalibur was the system selected and implemented.  The ERP implementation efforts were outsourced to Price Waterhouse.  The scope included land/property management, exploration, financials, operations, engineering, royalties, inventory of oil reserves and tracking  pipeline gas deliveries.
Golf Resorts (Scratch Golf Company)
This involved a very through systems requirements definition and evaluation of 12 major software companies that specifically cater to the golf industry.  Only three software packages met our requirements.  This was implemented by a team of MSI consultants augmented by internal IT staff.  This software included tee times, customer relationship management, integration with partner hotels and other resorts, pro shop, restaurant, POS and integration to financials and payroll.
Hotel (Martha Washington Inn)
The ERP system chosen was Fidelio with Micros integration.  The scope of this implementation included property management, reservations, special events, financials, night audit, customer relationship management, customer history, gift shop, restaurant inventory and menu planning.  This was completed two months behind schedule due to complications with the new release of Micros software.
Retail (United Central Supply)
This pseudo ERP application was hosted on an AS400 and addressed inventory management, EDI supply chain management with suppliers, customer management, order entry and POS.  The scope covered 15 remote stores.
