first began working
with municipalities that included municipal
electric, gas, or water systems by providing strategic
planning, management and operational assessments, and information technology implementation. Our services
in this area have expanded to include human resources, information technology support,
and other services.
primary focus in this industry is the implementation for Enterprise
Resource Planning (ERP), manufacturing systems and other forms of information technology. Clients
that have been struggling for many years to successfully implement
these systems have learned to call on us to achieve their objectives.
Additionally, these projects often expand in scope to include operations review and improvement efforts.
Our firm developed due to the need for regulatory
commissions to get a better understanding of the electric, gas, water and
telecommunications entities that they regulated. We built a successful business providing
management and operations review (audit) services to regulatory commissions across the
country. With the advent of deregulation, our services in this area are increasingly in demand.
A natural extension of our regulatory commission and management
and operational review experience was to work directly for the electric,
gas, water, and telecommunications companies. Schumaker & Company developed a
unique blend of industry knowledge and hands-on management experience making us experts in the
management and technical aspects of electric, gas, water, and
telecommunications operations, as well as relevant regulatory proceedings. This combined
knowledge base makes our firm uniquely qualified for the most complex and demanding assignments.
