Springfield, MO, June 12, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Michael Burlew, regional managing partner of BKD, LLP’s Initiative and Subsidy region, is pleased to announce the establishment of BKD’s Sage ERP X3 practice.

Sage ERP X3, from Sage Software, is an efficient and intuitive multi-language, multi-currency and multi-location business management solution for mid-size and enterprise organizations. From financials to manufacturing and distribution, Sage ERP X3 helps boost business performance by giving extensive functionality and full data integration where companies need it most.

“BKD is known for providing industry leading software,” said Burlew. “This all-in-one solution from Sage Software will help us offer cutting edge technology to organizations looking to grow their business.”

Tim Beranek, BKD partner, heads up BKD’s X3 practice. Tim has more than 20 years of accounting and technology experience and helps evaluate and recommend technology solutions, prepare strategic technology plans and manage solution implementations. Before joining BKD, Tim worked for a St. Louis-based software development company where he was responsible for developing system implementation plans.

“From an end-user and ERP implementation perspective, I am excited about the complete, native functionality of the X3 design & architecture,” said Beranek. “X3 reduces the reliance on third party bolt-ons to deliver client’s required functionality and positions BKD to serve clients and grow our technology practice.”
