Essential Software Solutions

What we do and why it matters

With more than 45 years of experience in the business solution business, we know just what you need.

The ESS team is made up of two dozen talented individuals with a wealth of certifications (including CPA, CPIM, BSc, Computer Science and BBA) and real-life manufacturing experience to overcome any enterprise technology challenge that may come our way. Over our many years of service we have built a reputation for delivering business benefits that are significant, verifiable and as promised, on time, every time.

At ESS, we empower business with the tools to improve existing workflow, introduce cost savings and identify opportunities to grow revenue.

Implementing a new ERP or software solution for your company doesn’t have to be something that you dread.

Dedicated to our customers

One of our key differentiators other than being around for the past 40 years is the experience and expertise our people bring to the table. Not only is our internal retention rate strong – but it’s our true understanding of manufacturing that makes us stand out from the competition. Two of our ESS mfg. consultants have earned the CFPIM designation, (Certified Fellowship in Production and Inventory Management) from APICS and are APICS Certified Instructors. Less than 3% of men and women who earn a CPIM designation worldwide qualify for the “Fellowship” designation. They regularly present at these meetings, as well as continue to lecture the accredited APICS courses at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, (BCIT). The ESS Implementation Team is first and foremost focused on manufacturing, operations, inventory management and distribution, leveraging proven technology and processes to make our customers more competitive and profitable

Our Vision and Mission

At ESS, we leverage technology as a tool to help our customers to what they do BETTER, and more efficiently.  We help accelerate sales and business processes.

We are committed to providing the absolute best advice, leadership and training to ensure your business will withstand the test of time and competition.
