What Our Clients Are Saying

"We had a tight timeline and limited resources for our cloud project. Sierra-Cedar's skilled consultants and agile methodologies helped Bowie State migrate from PeopleSoft to Oracle Cloud seamlessly and efficiently.”

Maurice Tyler, Chief Information Officer

- Bowie State University

"Sierra-Cedar joined the Pitt team as a true partner, helping us understand the system fully and jumping in when needed to help solve a problem, take on extra work, or review options with us. Their expertise and support were a huge part of our success.”

Angela Neria, Associate VP of Technology

- Pittsburg State University

“Florida A&M University (FAMU) chose Oracle's Student Financial Planning (SFP) application as a proactive approach to utilize technology for positive change to better serve our students. Sierra-Cedar collaborated with FAMU to reexamine business processes that would allow our financial aid team to allocate more time to advise students and parents rather than running manual processes."

William Hudson Jr., Ph.D., Vice President for Student Affairs

- Florida A&M University

“Sierra-Cedar is one of the top implementation partners I have worked with. Almost as important as skill and knowledge for an implementation partner is organizational fit. From the moment we met the Sierra-Cedar team, we felt that approach, communication style, and implementation strategy were a good fit for our office. They understood the complexity of our relationship with the County; what needed to be done; and provided valuable suggestions on how to best approach and successfully implement this project. With their guidance and partnership, our collective team stayed on track and overcame all obstacles ensuring a successful on-time/on-budget implementation.”

Shannon Ramsey-Chessman, COO, Finance

- Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller, FL

"In the hours and days immediately following the [9/11] attacks, you couldn’t tell the difference between Sierra-Cedar and Port Authority staff in terms of their dedication.  These people barely survived themselves, yet continued to work through the night, and long days and nights thereafter, helping the Port Authority through its most difficult tragedy. While I always knew that Port Authority staff can do the impossible, I never expected that “miracle worker” would be one of Sierra-Cedar’s job functions. I can never thank them enough."

Margaret Zoch, Former Comptroller

- The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

“Sierra-Cedar did a fantastic job on this project, helping us define the requirements, design the solution, and build the solution for us.  The consultants that they brought in were brilliant.  They were knowledgeable and had the required Public Sector experience to meet our complex requirements.  They went above and beyond to help and patiently address the needs of our users.  We are extremely happy with the services provided by Sierra-Cedar, and we plan to work with them again in the future.”

Vijay Badal, Director Application Services

- Douglas County, NE

“Sierra-Cedar consistently ranks at the top of the scorecard we use to track partner performance in Public Sector.  I have every confidence that when Sierra-Cedar is engaged as my Oracle Cloud ERP/HCM partner, our customers are in great hands because of their know-how, their passion for serving government and education clients, and the successful outcomes they achieve with their clients.”

Daniel Keene, Group VP for State & Local Government

- Oracle

“We went through a competitive process to select an Oracle system integrator and knew it was essential to select an organization with a strong reputation backed by numerous successful projects.   When we met Sierra-Cedar, we immediately knew their honest and forthright style made them an organization we wanted to work with. As we worked through contracts and started the project, we also found them to be flexible and always ready to do the right thing.  We would not have been able to reap the benefits we have to date if not for Sierra-Cedar.”

Tony Stechschulte, Director of Accounting and Internal Controls

- Lucas County, OH

“We are far less dependent upon internal IT today. We’ve been live for about five months and have gone from being about 90% dependent on IT resources to about 15%, and that continues to decline. When all is said and done, we anticipate saving over $2 million in the total cost of ownership.”

Susan Willis, CFO

- Wichita Public Schools

“Sierra-Cedar has worked with our leadership and subject matter experts to improve processes thanks to the modern and expansive functionality within Oracle Cloud Applications. Together, we are making history by building a great system for this generation and the next.”

Stephen Fuller, Enterprise Program Manager

- Oklahoma City, OK

"We partnered with Sierra-Cedar to replace our 30-year-old system and paper-based processes with Oracle Cloud Applications. They thoughtfully listen to our staff, understand our requirements, and provide us with proven solutions based on Best Business Practices. They are focused on our need to not only improve the software, but the antiquated and time-consuming processes we currently utilize. They are doing an excellent job. While being professional and keeping our project on time, they make the process fun and are building relationships with us that will last for years past this project."

Elizabeth Parry, CIO

- Dauphin County, PA

"It's been a six-month journey with hours and hours of Hangout, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams meetings driving this implementation amidst Covid disruptions. Sierra-Cedar adapted well and brought Oracle Cloud experts to the project, that helped effectively deliver an improved HR experience to our employees."

Arpita Sarkar, Head - Performance and Rewards

- Randstad India

“Sierra-Cedar has provided exceptional consultants to the State of New Mexico Department of Transportation over the years.  These experienced resources have demonstrated a genuine concern for our success, and they have designed and implemented useful configuration and business process solutions to meet our requirements.  Given their large pool of resources, they have always been able to furnish the right resource at the right time for us, even when our needs require a 'needle in a haystack.’  Our contracts have been established and managed with the highest level of integrity, and the cost for services is consistently less than what we have paid other firms for less effective resources."

Pat Byrd, Project Manager

- State of New Mexico

“Working with Sierra-Cedar has been a rewarding experience. We have found them to be unique in this market space. They are large enough to be able to flexibly address resource needs, however unlike many of the larger firms, Sierra-Cedar’s ability to adapt to project changes, and creatively resolve project challenges when presented make them a great partner to work with.”

Sarah Gigous, Director - Office of System Management (former)

- State of Kansas

"Sierra-Cedar was instrumental in assisting K-State with restoring our production HR System and migrating the system to AWS, allowing us to meet our immediate payroll deadline. They have also assisted us in staging other ERP systems for DR/BC capability in the future."

Gary L. Pratt, Chief Information Officer

- Kansas State University
