    generation set up for success


Stickle Steam’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool hadn’t evolved with the business. The manufacturer needed a better system to track and manage parts, cost jobs and measure profitability.


Wipfli Digital implemented a new ERP that would boost the company’s efficiency and give it real-time visibility into operations and profitability. The team replaced manual, outdated practices and helped the company accurately forecast cashflow and measure job-level profitability. Stickle Steam also outsourced accounting to Wipfli to leverage best practices in both accounting and technology.
