About the Client: West Monroe Partners

Since 2002, consulting firm West Monroe Partners has been assisting clients in generating revenue, reducing costs, and achieving operational business targets. Having built a reputation for its ability to create solutions that address even the most difficult companies and technological challenges, the company has grown to a team of 950 professionals spanning 10 offices.

They support clients across the M&A transaction lifecycle from strategy, analysis, and planning through to integration and optimization. One key area for integrating or separating these businesses is establishing accounting and financial structure, related business processes, and data migration. Seeking to offer a greater breadth of expertise within this domain, we have partnered on numerous projects, in both advisory and execution roles.

Looking for a Centralized ERP Solution

West Monroe and Trajectory Group have partnered on over 35 pre-diligence engagements, as well as over 10 enterprise resource planning migration/implementation projects. Backed by 15 years of experience designing and delivering enterprise resource planning solutions on the platform, we partner on a flexible approach to meet various client needs.

“We’ve helped West Monroe Partners scale its NetSuite implementation practice with the support of Trajectory’s ERP system subject matter experts.”
