Differentiating ALKU from the competitors is the company’s internal philosophy and a proactive approach to identify the best resources and consultants in the market place. “We understand the advantages of bringing individuals with different backgrounds, cultures and ideas together. Embracing diversity helps us build creativity, understand our marketplace, and be more competitive,” says Mark Eldridge, CEO & Founder, ALKU. This very philosophy has helped the company to grow by over 100 percent, time and again.

ALKU’s dedicated teams specializing in SAP and PeopleSoft, partners with clients and consultants to drive success in implementations, upgrades, production support, proof of concept work, and project management. The expertise showcased by ALKU has proven to create greater traction in industries such as manufacturing and energy, among others. For instance, a client of ALKU in the energy sector, while in the beginning stages of SAP Implementation, was seeking to work with a firm that could provide resources over a long term run extending through the entire SAP gamut. The client was following a diligent competitive process with price as a determining factor, to engage with the firm. ALKU soon became the preferred choice of the client as it demonstrated a strong track record, effective references as well as its ability to deliver key resources on time, every time. “This has been a great achievement for us since the client chose us over our competitors who have been there in the market for longer time than us,” says Dave Bruner, VP of Business Development & Founder, ALKU.

Going forward, ALKU envisions serving its clients in a more expert focused way by aligning its internal resources as well as its consultants along the industry lines. “We will focus on continuing to gain expertise in niche requirements and build expert teams to serve on those lines,” says Eldridge.
