ERP Solution Implementation
Unlock the Power of Enterprise Resource Planning
When implemented successfully and utilized effectively, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions enable Finance teams to leverage a suite of integrated, automated applications to track and analyze critical financial and corporate performance data in real-time. However, the unfortunate reality is this: more than half of ERP implementations fail or are not fully optimized – resulting in manual entry and processing of data, weak user-adoption, unrealized potential, and poor ROI.
ENTER: Accordion’s ERP Solution Implementation experts.
Our consultants are a rare hybrid between technologists and accountants, which means we’ve not only successfully deployed numerous ERP systems, but we’ve also been the end-user. While Accordion works with both public and privately-owned companies, we specialize in private equity-backed environments – in which CFOs face heightened scrutiny and can’t afford a failed implementation. Not to mention, PE-backed CFOs require a well-integrated, fully functioning ERP system to accelerate the close process, reduce reporting time, and fulfil sponsors’ frequent metrics requests. Sound complicated? Not to us. At Accordion, our experts ensure best-in-class ERP design and implementation – resulting in empowered Finance teams, increased value creation, and happy investors.
Our Process-Driven, Accounting-Centric Approach
Accordion’s NetSuite implementation methodology is designed to achieve specific, tangible outcomes. These outcomes include (but are not limited to): the alignment of CRM and ERP systems; a clean, reportable data structure; a single source of truth; the automation of manual processes; data integrity across the technology stack; reliable, real-time data; faster month-end closes; and the free-flow of data across systems.
From a functional standpoint, Accordion’s consultants have expertise across a range of functional areas, including: Design-to-Build, Procure-to-Pay, Record-to-Report, Order-to-Cash, E-Commerce, and more. This enables us to take a truly accounting-centric approach – while adhering to industry standards, implementing best practices, and catering to unique business needs.
“As a hyper-growth business, we needed a partner who could help us scale rapidly on NetSuite. Our partnership with Accordion has been extremely valuable and their NetSuite expertise is a great asset to our Finance and Accounting Team.”

Need a NetSuite Health Check?
At Accordion, we can provide end-to-end NetSuite support—from planning and design through deployment and user training—but the full range of services are not always necessary. If your Finance team has already implemented NetSuite but you need help optimizing it, Accordion’s NetSuite Health Check is right for you.
HOW IT WORKS: We’ll start with a comprehensive functional and technical review of current state configurations, customizations, integrations, and reporting capabilities. From there, we’ll identify system errors or gaps, and recommend opportunities for improvement – ultimately creating a roadmap to an optimized future state.
