For Shenandoah Fleet Maintenance and Management, the company’s growth presented an opportunity. “We needed to migrate from our legacy system—Deltek GCS—to a system that was more intuitive and could better support our future success,” said Dave Jones, co-founder and vice president of business development for the company, which provides fleet maintenance and operations services for government and private industry vehicle and equipment fleets.
A service-disabled veteran-owned small business, Shenandoah is headquartered in Warrenton, Virginia, and has locations throughout the United States. Brothers Bill and Dave Jones launched the company because of their interest and experience in providing customized fleet services using the best possible qualified and experienced technicians for each and every job.
But its technology was falling behind.
“Our legacy Deltek system lacked the business planning and accounting applications we needed to create transparency with our accounting department and better support our managers,” explained Jessica Seale, Shenandoah’s director of accounting. “As a result, these factors played a significant role in our decision-making process.”
After evaluating Deltek Costpoint, JAMIS, Microsoft Dynamics–NAV (also known as Pleasant Valley Business Solutions), and Unanet, JAMIS emerged as the clear choice. “JAMIS delivered an intuitive, innovative and cost-effective solution with the exceptional customer support required to implement the software in a timely manner,” said Seale. With the assistance of Shenandoah’s capable staff, the implementation was completed in just 12 weeks—and under budget.
“The integration and implementation of JAMIS Prime ERP was by far the most satisfying, seamless, and least stressful process we have ever experienced when implementing a new system,” said Jones. “The system and the service have exceeded all of our expectations.”
“We are pleased to welcome Shenandoah Fleet Maintenance and Management to the JAMIS Software family and are thrilled to support their business in an effective and meaningful way,” said JAMIS Software Vice President of Sales & Business Development, Steve Brander. “JAMIS Prime ERP has the scalability and flexibility to continue to support Shenandoah’s growth efforts and enable them to continue to see success.”
