Paragon Software’s Implementation of ERP System Upgrade Prepares WiTricity Corporation for Product Commercialization

WiTricity knew that as it prepared for the commercialization of its technology, it would need more functionality than QuickBooks could deliver. As it took on inventory, an inventory control process would need to be implemented along with a sales order process. But since the company was just beginning to manufacture and sell product, one of the biggest questions that needed to be answered was what the chart of accounts and general ledger would look like. Would they be selling licensing for medical devices, product for the automotive industry or royalties for another industry?

“Paragon helped us to think about and set up a chart of accounts that would work for us today as well as down the road,” commented Eileen Sickler, controller for WiTricity Corporation. “They have tremendous experience and knowledge in this arena so they know just what questions we needed to consider.”
