A fruitful first meeting between students and companies in information technology and engineering

April 4, 2018 Namtek Consulting Services

participated in the 1st edition of “Recrutement éclair étudiant en TI/Génie” organized by Le Service du développement économique de la Ville de Laval.

In the form of a networking 5 à 7, the recruitment flash concept was much appreciated. Companies had access to students from 12 different educational institutions in the Greater Montreal area. At the same time, to optimize pairings, recruitment blitzes were organized.

The participating companies, all from Laval, offered 10 internships and 25 jobs in the IT and engineering fields.

In fact, they left with numerous curricula vitae of potential candidates. Building on this success, a second edition of the event is scheduled for this autumn, and will be extended to other business sectors.

erp_Browsing on the web for free Business management solutions suited to run a small or mid-size enterprise could be quite confusing. Many hits you’ll see will be offers for free trials of different kinds of software including Accounting, full ERP, project management software, etc. However, there are very few reputable software brands, that aren’t off-the-shelf systems, which indeed offer a true FREE license to use their solution without any commitment or investment.

In this post, I will identify the facts and differences between selecting a FREE trial versus completely FREE commercial software license. I have already touched upon the differences between inexpensive software solutions and free off-the-shelf systems in my previous post. Please read it here to refresh your memory. Read more

IT services and IT providers are terms that are very popular in the IT market. It actually became even more popular with the evolution of the cloud.

A first date with an IT provider (or IT consultant) can be overwhelming, especially if you have had bad experiences in the past with other providers. Many IT professionals speak a whole other language, full of technical terms that many business professionals don’t fully understand. A good business IT consultant, however, knows this and translates their terms into explanations their clients understand – such as how their software systems will work for their specific business, how it will benefit their enterprise and improve their processes, etc. Read more

testimonial edi2xml

I am a professor of computer science here at the Bern University of Applied Science, and I was teaching a lecture of EDI. I found your EDI Guide book – and it was just wonderful!

I also used your company as an example in my lecture – and we took a look at your website. I explained that companies today do not need to build their own EDI solutions, but rather they can work with a company like yours, and they can get a lot of EDI functionality “as a service”.

I want to thank you for the great book and the nice website.

I wanted to let any potential client of Namtek (EDI2XML) know that we had a very pleasant and professional business relationship with the Namtek team.

The level of organization, fairness & detail they brought to the project was critical to a smooth and successful integration process. Their support is amazing and we feel lucky to be in partnership with them.

I usually have problems being convinced by a consultant for obvious reasons, but when it comes to IT, I just listen to Pierre and learn a lot from him.

One thing for sure, he knows his stuff and masters it. I highly recommend him, especially that he offers very affordable yet professional customized services.

The solutions Pierre Namroud and his team have supplied us with are nothing less than excellent. With almost 20 years working together, Namtek has always come through with the best solutions with impressive speed and accuracy.

Their software solutions have saved us tremendous time and effort. They have taken us from a time when information was totally inaccurate to today, where everything is in real time and precise.

Working with Pierre has made it easy for us to make another big move to his most recent business solution of ERP Wizard, which again, will allow us to grow by giving us more flexibility and data analysis, all in real-time.

Namtek is a definite asset to have.

I had the pleasure of recently working with Namtek Consulting Services. The company established our EDI platform with its EDI2XML Translation Service.

Their team was very cooperative and knowledgeable. The information given to me enabled us to move fast and to make informed decisions. We worked in a collaborative manner with their team who really understood our technical and commercial needs. I look forward to working with them again soon.

If there is a way, Pierre will find it and make it happen.

Namtek Group has helped Carpet Art Deco Team in many aspects, from developing a solution to solve our complex business processes to improving our EDI communication with our customers and automating many of our manual tasks and processes.

Mr. Pierre Namroud and his team have a wide knowledge and experience in the Manufacturing, Accounting, EDI, Inventory Management, Business Intelligence, CRM, HR and a lot more of the necessary features capable of building a solid ERP solution.

The trust and honest relationship we have with Namtek has helped them to better understand and guide us to choose the best solutions for our business, not just to sell us any software. Today, Carpet Art Deco has more than 3 locations and more than 150 employees. We service clients and suppliers from all around the world.”

Although QBR is a change of mentality in terms of making backup copies, we were quickly seduced by the advantages. It has brought more security to our company by eliminating the human risk factor involved with traditional backup and providing us with a Business Continuity plan in case of disaster.

We can now concentrate on real operations that allow our company to be the best for our customers.

The QBR implementation process went very well; the service was impeccable and the team was available to quickly take care of any power outage issues we encountered. Within one hour, our staff at IMS was able to easily operate the QBR interface. We consider the monthly QBR fee as an insurance policy!

I’ve had the privilege of working with Pierre and the Namtek team as they are one of Datto’s partners for little more than a year now. In that time, I have known him to be a focused, pragmatic, detail-oriented, and thoughtful business owner.

He is always looking out for the best interests of his clients and I found this to be incredibly admirable in working with him, as it allows him (and for those who work with him) to put together the best solutions possible for his clients. He is a hard worker and value creator in the truest sense.

Pierre has a vast knowledge of and experience in the IT business servicing his many clients. He is always looking for innovative solutions and maintains his software solutions updated regularly with the latest technologies.

He has a strong commitment to keeping his clients happy. I strongly recommend Pierre for his work ethic, professionalism, and as a trusted resource.

Highly Professional, reliable, diligent and can be trusted to develop the right solutions.

Pierre combines credibility, presentation skills, expertise and flexibility in his dealings with our prospect. His attention to detail in preparing a response was appreciated and effective. He was recommended to me by others in our organization who have had similar results.

Our more than 15 year business relationship is based on the fact that Mr. Namroud and his team have a very strong knowledge of the areas which they have serviced us.

He and his company have a very hands-on approach and are able to develop effective solutions at a rapid pace. His knowledge in the logistical intricacies of a company’s operations allows him to develop practical IT solutions that help reduce costs and improve efficiencies. A+ for his service and quality.

I had the opportunity to work with Pierre and the Namtek team on the development of an ERP system. Although I didn’t get the opportunity to complete the project, my experience in working with Pierre was great. His knowledge, professionalism and commitment to his work are admirable. I would definitely recommend Pierre and his company’s services.

Pierre has a large experience in the domain of Cloud-Based Solution and fully integrated software systems. Namtek Consulting Services offers to midsize, and small enterprises gain in terms of productivity and efficiency. Their ERP expertise and methodologies are unparalleled.

Pierre is a good go-to guy to explain complex solutions into building blocks that can then be addressed in steps. Pierre is definitely someone you can trust and he is also very aware of deadlines.

In 2011, the NAMTEK Consulting Services’ team created for us a highly efficient and professional website in 5 languages –

We are very satisfied with this high quality product; we did not encounter any technical problems. Thank you Pierre Namroud, we were delighted to work with you!”
