Testimonials

“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, Former Director, Office of System Management

- State of Kansas

"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

“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

“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, Chief Operating Officer, Finance

- Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller, FL

“What clinched the deal for us was Sierra-Cedar’s Change Management approach. Making Change Management as much of a priority as User Acceptance Testing was key for a successful implementation.”

Susan Willis, CFO

- Wichita Public Schools

“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’s track record of success implementing Oracle Cloud Applications for State and Local Governments is unparalleled, and they are a great pleasure to work with.”

Justin Apotheker, Head of Oracle Cloud Application Sales

- Oracle State and Local Government

“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

"The Sierra-Cedar team assigned to our project has been very helpful.  In many cases, they guide us about how to do what we want to do and how it will work. It’s been very beneficial for us.”

Chuck Williams, Project Manager

- City of Stamford, CT

"When our director told us to pull out all the stops and pay our people on September 14, we knew that failure was not an option. We were counting on Sierra-Cedar and they came through. On the days immediately following September 11, payroll was elevated to a mission critical system at The Port Authority. Employees were depending on those paychecks. But members of the Sierra-Cedar team were undaunted. They rolled up their sleeves and put in long hours despite the trauma of September 11."

John Sebastiano, Payroll Manager

- The Port Authority of NY and NJ

“These experienced resources have demonstrated a genuine concern for our success as their first priority, and they have designed and implemented the configuration and business process solutions needed in support of NMDOT’s mission-critical systems. 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” or urgent response.”

Pat Byrd, Project Manager

- State of New Mexico

"Sierra-Cedar assembled a very talented team to partner with our King County project team, the project came in on time and under budget. This was a significant achievement given the County’s highly customized Time and Labor module. Sierra-Cedar brought the right mix of project management, technical, and functional expertise.  I appreciated the open communication and collaboration, their dedication to supporting the aggressive timeline, and their prompt attention to resolve issues quickly. I could not have asked for a better result."

Carmel Call, Director, Business Resource Center

- King County, WA

"The State Bar of California replaced its aging JD Edwards system with Oracle Cloud Applications, which provides employees with a modern user experience that is intuitive, secure, and easy to use. Our partner, Sierra-Cedar, helped us improve processes, expand functionality, and automate business workflows. This enables us to operate efficiently, anytime, and from anywhere.”

John Adams, Former Chief Financial Officer

- The State Bar of California
