San Joaquin RTD
Finance Manager: Virginia Alcayde
I was surprised at the personal interest Nancy Schafer and her staff took in the City of Little Rock. Throughout the past two years, the Schafer Team has shown over and over again their concern that the result of the software project be a success for us. They worked extra time, late nights, and into the early morning because they wanted to do a good job for us. Their knowledge and advice were crucial to the success of contract negotiations because they knew what was important to us.

Finance Director: Robert K. Biles
The Schafer Team offer a broad base of expertise and practical application challenging us to think “outside the box”. They have been readily available to advise, interpret and expand our vision. They are flexible, often working on our behalf many 10-12 hour days and adjusting time lines to facilitate our holiday and personal conflicts. Many times during our project, they have been able to positively redirect our focus as they observe the project objectively.
Executive Finance Director: Paula Wingfield
An integral part of our implementation team was Schafer Consulting. Their consultants were very responsive to our needs of maintaining a tight schedule and working with the software vendor as well as our internal staff to ensure success. Schafer Consulting oversaw the project from a high-level project management point of view while being very well versed in the details of the software for design and user training purposes.

We find the Schafer Team to be extremely knowledgeable in issues that are unique to government agencies. They possess excellent organizational skills needed to manage a project of this magnitude and are dedicated to keep us on track. Their experience as former Finance Managers for various government agencies allows them the ability to give us real life versus “textbook” solutions and also provided a high degree of sensitivity to our needs.
Accounting Manager: Stephen L. Smigiel
We are truly grateful and satisfied with the partnership that we have developed in the last 3 years …. WOW! Look where we have come from and where we are today. We would not have done it without the Schafer Team.
Director of IT: Todd Enlow
Schafer Consulting was very professional, thorough and timely throughout the project. Members of the project team were well qualified and provided well thought-out and helpful answers to our questions. Even though we probably required more time beyond Schafer’s initial project plan, all services were delivered within the project budget, and no unanticipated fees were charged. The team demonstrated an enthusiastic and personal interest in our project, going beyond normal expectations.
Salt Lake County
Director of Accounting & Operations: Steve Spencer
The Schafer Team appeared to be with us around the clock even on days that they were not in New Orleans. I was working late one night and sent an email off to one of the team members, expecting to hear from them sometime the next day. I got a response within five minutes and the consultant promised to have a file to me within half an hour. Their knowledge of the political, financial, staffing and governmental challenges proved invaluable to getting our project off the ground.

Working with Schafer Consulting was a joy. Not only were they razor sharp in their knowledge of CIS, utility billing systems, and the industry, but they carried their knowledge in a completely neutral but insightful manner. Nancy Schafer and her staff’s customer service was first rate, and I’m convinced their guidance led to not only an exceptional software provider but a successful 12 month implementation and Go Live of the City’s Utility Billing system. We are very pleased with the outcome of our project and it all started with Schafer Consulting’s thorough vendor evaluation, and selection process.
City of Gresham
FMS Director: Bernard Seeger
Schafer Consulting helped us select and implement a new finance system. We were using a 15 year-old legacy system and had no clue what features or options were available in the newer software packages. Their knowledge, support, and expertise were key into helping us select the product that was best fit for us. Additionally they helped prevent us from making some the common mistakes many companies make during selection and implementation saving us time and money and a lot of frustration. Our project completed early and under budget and we have been very happy. I would highly recommend Schafer Consulting!.
