Mike provided exceptional support and direction for our SAP Payroll process and schema needs. His communication is detailed and efficient and his knowledge of SAP Payroll is excellent. Mike understood all of the aspects of payroll including impact from master data, time management, to A/P and interacting with Finance.
All of our top priority issues were addressed through Mike’s payroll assessment. He would perform some of the basic configuration in a test environment and then guide us through detailed documentation and online learning sessions to input the configuration into transports that were then moved to production. This allowed us to understand his knowledge and also put it into practice.
We were particularly impressed with the payroll assessment document provided by Mike at the end of the project. This document was organized, detailed and well put together. It contained the descriptions needed to show improvements that had already been made and the ROI that we could then use to follow up with management. The document also provided answers and directions on any issue that had been brought up during the assessment – from FMLA to posting documents in Finance.
Another plus we didn’t expect is extra tips and tools from a process, configuration, and development perspective that he willingly provided. These tools alone (such as employee copy tool & emailing spool results) enhanced all areas of our HR responsibilities. Even today Mike is willing and supportive to quick email requests for ideas and suggestions. He analyzed our needs and concerns and provided great results before our agreed deadline. He is a pleasure to work with.

I’ve had the distinct privilege of knowing and working with Mike for 4+ years. He has been one of our featured speakers at our annual SAP HR Conference – and will be a featured speaker at future events, including our HR 2014 event next March in Orlando. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Mike as one of our regular speakers. He always provides us with his final presentations well ahead of schedule, is always professional, and willing to help whenever needed. I know from speaking with conference attendees that he is a great resource to our participant. In addition to his industry knowledge, I believe Mike’s extensive technical consulting for software implementations, or the customized training he’s developed, have enabled him to be consistently successful with his clients.

Mike quickly learned and assessed BGM’s requirements and then used his leadership and interpersonal skills to coordinate with other modules, ensuring deadlines were met and needed functionality was achieved. The HR/PR modules are more complex than the other modules and Mike’s persistence paid dividends. He also did a good job of transferring his knowledge to BGM team leads enabling them to work independently. BGM was able to meet the Go-Live deadline and has successfully processed all payrolls to date.

Mike has always provided Haas Automation Inc. with the highest level of expertise, personal attention, and sincerest integrity. He has always met our deadlines and makes sure to advise us of all issues to consider when making changes. What I especially appreciate is his ability to go through the changes and learn how to make like changes in the future on our own, making the experience that much better an investment by learning from the master himself. The icing on the cake is his warm and caring personality. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who needs a top-of-the-class platinum-level industry well-respected professional.
