Michael P. Ralph

Senior Business Process and ERP Management Consultant

Mike is a senior business process and ERP management consultant at Sisterson. With more than 35 years of hands-on, diverse experience, he provides clients with project management services in the areas of ERP and business information systems. In addition, Mike has worked with clients to optimize business process and better utilize existing application tools.   

Mike joined Sisterson in 2000. He began his career as a cost accountant for a mid-market manufacturer and migrated to accounting system selection and implementation consulting work with a big four accounting firm. He also worked for a local technical staffing company as Manager of Business Information Systems helping the company with selection and implementation of a new ERP system.

He is positioned to help clients improve internal business processes and move towards the goal of "single point of entry,” eliminating clerical waste where the same information is entered into multiple entry points that includes inefficient usage of the spreadsheet environment.
