ITs : Consulting - ERP : Business / Functional / Configuration in an ERP consulting house (Erp)
An ERP consulting house supplies solutions based on an ERP Product like SAP, ORACLE FINANCIALS, SAGE ACCPAC, SAP BUSINESS ONE, PASTEL EVOLUTION, MS GREAT PLAINS etc.
Functional Consultants focus on the different functional areas like HR, Finance, Materials Management, Sales and Distribution etc.. These consultants are often certified by the product vendor. They work closely with the Users / Super Users of their clients to ensure that the specific business processes are included.
