Who is EIS?
Brian and Jeremy are co-owners of EIS. They both have served our country in the military. Brian is still actively engaged and Jeremy is a disabled veteran. They apply the skills they've learned through military service, including leadership, hard work, dedication, diligence, effectiveness and efficiency at EIS. Their values are instilled throughout the EIS organization and they treat their employees and customers with the same honor, courtesy, and respect that they learned in the military.
Brian and Jeremy have known each other since 2003, and have both served in the military together and worked at various companies together. After helping their companies build new software and replace and rebuild their backend infrastructure, they decided to start EIS in 2015 to share their knowledge and help other companies grow.
"We are eclectic because we like exploring new, innovative, and unconventional ways of doing things. And we care very strongly for our customers. This is why companies enjoy working with us."
- Brian Fletcher, EIS Chief Executive Officer
How do we help companies grow?
We implement technology that helps businesses streamline business operations and provide subscription-based services around it. At the core of any growing company is technology that helps them automate and facilitate business processes. Many businesses start out using simple software solutions such as QuickBooks, and often extend that functionality by using other systems. These systems are often disconnected, and include the use of many spreadsheets to supplement missing features. We get involved with companies when they realize that their technology backbone is not scalable and they recognize the need and value of an ERP, or have legacy ERPs that no longer meet their needs. We specialize in integration because its an integral part of helping our customers be successful with ERP.
"I love working with Brian. He drives me nuts but in a good way, and has always pushed me to excel in my career. I wouldn't be who I am today without Brian. He is my family."
- Jeremy Hornback, EIS Chief Technology Officer
Why do companies choose EIS?
Companies choose EIS because they are looking for a similarly sized technology partner to help them grow their business and help them adapt as their company evolves. At EIS, all customers are treated as partners. We foster the creation of innovative solutions that give companies the competitive edge they are looking for. We are eclectic because we help companies choose the best ideas from a wide variety of sources, including our own experience helping other companies grow. And we are a partner with our customers because we stay involved with them as long as they have their system, providing personalized support as well as services to ensure their continued growth.
"I worked with Brian and Jeremy professionally on and off since 2008. When the opportunity arose to join EIS, I could not resist because I always enjoyed working with them."
- Art Ardolino, EIS VP Services
What types of companies does EIS work with?
We enjoy working with businesses who are ready to take that next evolutionary step in the growth of their business. We specialize in companies that offer subscription-based products and services, outsourced manufacturing, distribution with EDI, DCAA and project accounting, and building both custom and commercial integrations with Acumatica. We want to work with companies that realize the value of technology. We pride ourselves in fostering a relationship which each and every company so we can grow with them. We treat all of our customers as partners. Its the primary reason why we provide subscription-based services - it reduces the cost of entry into ERP for small companies, and it allows us to continue to help companies beyond the initial engagement.
"I worked with Brian a very long time ago at Perot systems. I loved the idea of helping EIS build the engagement team and I felt that subscription-based services was the future of ERP."
- Teresa Rekieta, EIS Director of Engagement
Our values drive our organization and motivate us as a team. They are the guiding principles we live by everyday. Because our founders are veterans and active military personnel, you will find great similarity with our values and those of our armed forces.
Respect. Treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same. Respect is what allows us to appreciate the best in other people. Respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. And self-respect is just as important, knowing you have put forth your best effort. We are all one team and each of us has something special to contribute.
Integrity. Do what is right, both ethically and morally. Integrity is a quality you develop by adhering to moral principles. It requires that you say and do nothing that deceives others. As your integrity grows, so does the trust others place in you. The more choices you make based on integrity, the more this highly prized value will affect your relationships with family and friends, and, finally, the fundamental acceptance of yourself.
Duty. Fulfill your obligations. Doing your duty means more than carrying out your assigned tasks. Duty means being able to accomplish tasks as part of a team. We all have assigned tasks and responsibilities, and we continue to learn and grow through our experiences. Resist the temptation to take "shortcuts" that might undermine the integrity of the final product.
Selfless Service. Put the welfare of others before your own. Selfless service is larger than just one person. In serving your company and its customers, you are doing your duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain. The basic building block of selfless service is the commitment of each team member to go a little further, endure a little longer, and look a little closer to see how he or she can add to the effort.
Humility. Be humble and modest, not arrogant. Be teachable and be coachable and learn from others and your experiences. We all have important roles to play. Recognize that ideas can come from other people, have a willingness to change your mind, be able to admit your mistakes when you make them, and be willing to learn from the mistakes of others, rather than punishing them.
Loyalty. Bear true faith and allegiance to your team. Believe in yourself and devote yourself to the mission of the company. A loyal team member is one who supports the leadership and stands up for fellow teammates. Express your loyalty in your actions, and show your loyalty to your team.
Honor. Live up to our values. Make honor a matter of your daily living. Develop the habit of being honorable and solidify that habit with every choice you make. Honor is matter of carrying out, acting, and living the values of the organization.
Courage. Be brave about pursuing options that are risky, novel, or untried. Do not be afraid to try new things and explore new ways of doing things. Be innovate in your approach. Be interested in new ways of doing things, unusual approaches, or things that are outside your area of expertise. Constantly be learning.
