When it comes to H2O, PAX Water Technologies is an expert at delivering innovative, durable, and energy efficient water quality solutions. Their equipment and technology are used by municipal water agencies nationwide to safeguard and provide healthy drinking water in the communities they serve.
Founded in 2006, PAX Water utilized various business systems to manage their operations. However, they found their accounting system, QuickBooks, limited in both manufacturing capabilities and scalability for future business growth. Because of this, Ken Christiansen, CFO/COO of Pax Water, received the challenge to implement a repeatable and scalable business management system that also adapted with their organizational structure.
With the various software solutions at the company’s disposal, Ken soon established an initial prototype solution which provided a connection between their financial and manufacturing systems. However, the connection between the two-stand alone systems was unwieldy, time-consuming to maintain, and encountered integration issues.
While attending Dreamforce, Ken learned about the various accounting and ERP solutions available on the Salesforce platform. As a result, he selected Accounting Seed because of its design, customizability, and robust accounting and order management feature set built, directly on Salesforce.
“I was particularly impressed that Accounting Seed bundled so many toolsets along with the system,” said Ken Christiansen.
