Feedback summary: 

ICON Business Consulting outranks previous partners the client has worked with. They are knowledgeable, prompt, and responsive. Customers can expect a team that is dedicated to delivering high-quality results and customer service. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

I’m the systems administrator at Barbershop Harmony Society. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ICON Business Consulting, LLC?

We needed support with our Great Plains software. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided fixes and updates for Great Plains. Their team also taught us a lot about how to work the application ourselves, as well as how to use Microsoft SQL. 

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact is Thomas (Founder), but we’ve worked with a few other team members at different times. 

How did you come to work with ICON Business Consulting, LLC? 

We found them through a Great Plains forum. We had a partner at the time, but we weren’t happy with their performance. When I spoke with Thomas, he was extremely knowledgeable.

Our initial preference was to select a local vendor. However, ICON Business Consulting’s experience outweighed the cons of working with a remote vendor. 

How much have you invested in them?

We spend a bit under $5,000 per year on their services. 

What is the status of this engagement?

I believe we started working together in February 2018. Our relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They’ve taught each department in our office so much about Great Plains which has made our lives much easier. They make the effort to work with us and save money since we are a nonprofit. Thomas helps our operations run smoothly. 

How did ICON Business Consulting, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

We have regular meetings with Thomas. They’re always very prompt and respond to emails within an hour or two. They meet deadlines and have an exceptional turnaround time. They often complete work before the deadline. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re phenomenal. The knowledge they have is incredible. They’ve been far better than previous partners we’ve worked with. Thomas is able to answer questions quickly and shows a depth of expertise on the software. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

In my opinion, there’s nothing they need to improve.

Feedback summary: 

The team has proven to be reliable in correcting a wide variety of arising issues. They’ve handled situations with urgency, always making someone on staff available to problem-solve. They used their knowledge of automation to eliminate unnecessary manual processes from the company’s operations.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of finance for a watch retail company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ICON Business Consulting, LLC?

We brought them on to handle our IT services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re our IT partner, handling technical upgrades and any kind of hardware or software issues. They have a large staff on hand, so someone was always available to help us. That came in handy in urgent cases that required fixes right away. For instance, they helped us with software and printer issues. They worked on the software for our handheld scanners to enable our team to be more efficient.   

What is the team composition?

We’ve had at least three of their team members working on our account. It’s an ongoing process, so staffing sometimes changes.

How did you come to work with ICON Business Consulting, LLC?

We were referred to them by someone within our network. At the time, we had another IT partner. They were an individual rather than a full team and didn’t have the capacity that we needed. We decided to give their team a go based on the presumed availability and turnaround time benefits.  

How much have you invested with them?

We spend between $50,000–$100,000 each year with them. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2018, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They’ve been able to cover any issues that came up.  

How did ICON Business Consulting, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

They always provide us with a clear scope of work, explaining their process with PowerPoints and demonstrations. That helped us understand exactly how everything would work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They gave us ideas on how to improve and become more efficient. Now, we have less of a need for manual data entry and more integrated automation.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

They performed very well.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CFO at HSD Holdings. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ICON Business Consulting LLC? 

ICON Business Consulting LLC is a reseller of software solutions, including Great Plains Accounting. We first installed Great Plains Accounting about 15 years ago, and we need to replace our current reseller with someone new.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They upgraded the software and integrated three add-on packages. The first add-on is a check writing extension. There’s also a property management tool and a financial reporting package. The financial reporting package integrates Microsoft Excel. ICON Business Consulting was instrumental in setting that up for us, as well as providing training. 

What is the team composition? 

I had one point of contact, Thomas (Founder & Owner). 

How did you come to work with ICON Business Consulting LLC?

I don’t remember how we found them since it was so long ago. 

What is the status of this engagement?

I believe we started working together around 2012, and our relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The level of service that Thomas provides is excellent. Regardless of where he is, he gets back to us very quickly and shows a lot of dedication to our project. He works long hours to make sure that the processes are running smoothly and that upgrades are working. 

How did ICON Business Consulting LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

Thomas has good project management skills. If he doesn’t know the answer to something, he works to find an answer for us quickly. In one instance, he coordinated a call with the manufacturer of Jet Global Reporting to assist with the installation of their program. He makes sure not to waste anybody’s time, which I really appreciate. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their responsiveness, dedication, and quick turnaround time are impressive. Not many other vendors provide this level of service. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, I’m very pleased.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Icon Business Consulting has helped develop and integrate systems that have made a difference for revenue. The team was proactive, demonstrated excellent communication and possessed intimate knowledge of the business.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We're a concession company working on cruise lines. We have around 13 members. I am the director of information technology for the company.

What is your position?

I am the director of information technology for the company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Icon Business Consulting?

We needed a consultant for our ERP [enterprise resource planning] system, Microsoft Dynamics GP.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Icon Business Consulting is a long-term solutions provider for us. When I initially joined the company, the system was running on a Mac platform, but we've since converted to Windows. A little later on, we migrated from the Btrieve database to Microsoft SQL Server. Since then, Icon Business Consulting has helped 3 of our sites (1 in Miami, 2 in Grand Cayman, and 1 for the e-commerce site) implement separate instances of Microsoft Dynamics GP, and maintained the conversation between these separate instances. 

Icon Business Consulting was working out of the Dominican Republic, but they've since moved to Florida. They come to our office every week.

The common projects involve upgrading each instance to the latest technology. We have several satellite systems which talk to GP, so Icon Business Consulting has been involved in conversations with other consultants, ensuring that nothing gets broken in the course of our upgrades. We have set up a fairly complicated process involving a sandbox server on which Icon Business Consulting brings in our current GP, performs an upgrade, and makes sure that the communication with our warehouse management system still works, for example.

How did you come to work with Icon Business Consulting?

I have worked with the company for 16 years, but Icon Business Consulting predates me as a consultant.

How much have you invested with Icon Business Consulting?

The cost of Icon Business Consulting's services has been around $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think we've worked with Icon Business Consulting for close to 20 years. We have open projects around our ERP system on a constant basis.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We started our e-commerce site 8 to 9 years ago. Icon Business Consulting was instrumental in performing its backend integrations with Dynamics GP, writing all the procedures involved in this. On a revenue basis, Icon Business Consulting has helped us come up with systems that have made a difference to our company.

They're an easy consultant to work with, working with us almost as if they were our employees, in some cases. We can get projects running easily, without a lot of fat between the consultant that works on the project and myself. Icon Business Consulting's principal has worked on all of our projects himself.

As Dynamics GP has gotten more and more capable, we've been able to personalize the experience around it, changing a canned product for our specific business needs. Getting Icon Business Consulting's team started on something is an easy process, because of their intimate knowledge of our business.

How did Icon Business Consulting perform from a project management standpoint?

Icon Business Consulting maintains the schedule on a sheet which is forwarded to me at the end of every month. Projects and statements of work are approved beforehand, and we have meetings every so often, ensuring that I'm kept aware of Icon Business Consulting's progress. The process is tightly managed, and there haven't been many instances of Icon Business Consulting going over budget.

What did you find most impressive about Icon Business Consulting?

I've mainly appreciated Icon Business Consulting's intimate knowledge of our business. With other consultants I've used, a significant amount of time was spent educating them about our business before actually getting to make meaningful changes to the system. This hasn't been the case with Icon Business Consulting. The fact that they're a smaller company has eliminated many of the repertory meetings with project management that would be necessary for larger groups. After a project with Icon Business Consulting has been defined, getting an estimate and commissioning the work is a very quick process.

Are there any areas Icon Business Consulting could improve?

No. I'm actually very happy that Icon Business Consulting has kept static rates for us, over the course of many years. They've been very conscious of our needs and our business relationship.
