"Sappi was able to deliver this project on-time and on-budget, and Andrew Lavespere was a big reason why we were successful. He successfully leveraged available (and meager) information about the brand-new 5.0 release, and got us up and running. He showed flexibility while working with a wide range of IT folks: systems and applications. When he needed help, he was able to draw on other SAPP resources to get quick and decisive answers. He was also able to successfully train both systems and applications people so we could function on our own after he left. Should Sappi ever need additional SAP consulting services, I would welcome Andrew back." April 9, 2002
