Todd Richards of Entertainment Lighting Services Inc. – Sage Customer Award Winner (Innovation)

Todd Richards, Chief Financial Officer for Entertainment Lighting Services, Inc. discussed his business and shared some thoughts about the Sage Summit customer conference here in Atlanta this week.

Entertainment Lighting Services rents and sells lighting equipment used to support television, theatre, film and red carpet media events. A time-elapsed video of ELS assisting with setup of the Late Nite with Conan O’Brien stage is available here.

Entertainment Lighting Services received a Sage Customer Award this week in the Innovation category for its use of Sage MAS 500 Enterprise Resource Planning. Noteworthy among the company’s accomplishments with Sage MAS 500 are reducing inventory shrinkage by 50% and month-end closing process from four weeks to five days.

Richards says one of his most memorable experiences with Sage is the amount of time he doesn’t have to spend with support, and when he does need something he appreciates the knowledge of his Sage business partner, Information Integration Group, Inc.

As for Sage Summit, Richards has benefited from the general business sessions this year, having focused on attending specialized classes last year. He also participated in some round table discussions this year which were helpful for networking with other Sage customers and hearing how they are managing  business challenges similar to his own.
