“Ulteig places a high value on the role of innovation and technology in helping us perform at the highest levels.” explained Nick Ingolfsland, Vice President of IT and Business Services for Ulteig.”  When our legacy software provider announced the sunsetting of our current system, we set out to find the best cloud business platform that would support our business for the next 10 to 15 years and beyond. After an in-depth evaluation of potential options, it was clear to our team that Microsoft Dynamics 365, aec360, and the Microsoft cloud would best meet our needs and add the most value to our business over the long-term.”
