"We can provide information to our executives, marketing group, and project managers that we were unable to before… This reporting toolset will help us grow as the economy recovers."- Marcy McCoy, Controller, MacKay & Sposito


Engineering consulting firm MacKay & Sposito serves public-sector, commercial, industrial, and residential customers in Washington and Oregon. Economic challenges and increasing competition and budget pressure on private-sector and public-sector projects require the ability to track detailed project performance and to measure company performance against specific goals.

Microsoft Dynamics SL case study
After the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics SL, the company came to rely on its financial and project management capabilities to help align its business management, accounting, and operational functions. As a result, MacKay & Sposito's executives can measure performance in specific segments of the business and redirect business development efforts to ensure that the company meets its goals. Project managers exert precise control over time and billing and track resource utilization at a detailed level to optimize profitability and cash flow.

Customer Profile
MacKay & Sposito provides a full array of consulting services, including civil engineering, planning, land and construction surveying, landscape architecture, and construction management and inspection.

Business Situation
Because project management and accountingpractices did not align, the company lacked the ability to track and report on performance at a meaningful level.

With help from Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Synergy Business Solutions, MacKay & Sposito configured its implementation of Microsoft Dynamics SL to reflect the way the company does business.
