Cumulative Value Proposition Provide Utilities with Expertise on a Scale Not Seen Before
April 8, 2019 – Austin, TX – TMG Consulting is moving forward with joining forces with Enterprise Solutions Consulting, LLC (“ESC”), a Rochester, NY based Utilities Enterprise IT Implementation and Managed Services firm with international operations in India, Oman and the Philippines. TMG has long been viewed as the utility industry’s most reputable, full-service and independent utility advisory and implementation support consultancy firm. ESC is a proven partner in the utility/energy industry focused on customer centric information systems including CRM, CIS, Field Operations, Asset Management and Meter Data Management applications. The combined organization stands alone as the preeminent independent technology advisory and client-side professional services firm serving the utility industry today.
Our team will enhance the success of utility clients’ IT projects by leveraging the best, cumulative methodologies and practices gained over TMG’s 27 years serving both investor-owned and municipal utilities and ESC’s ten years of providing implementation services and hosting full production deployments of mission critical applications. The combined resumes boasts more than 300 utility organizations and 500+ projects.
“Success in our business is about people, experience, methodologies and innovation; ESC and TMG lead the industry in these four areas,” said Mario Bauer, CEO of the combined organizations. “We are currently working with over 20 utilities with a variety of planning, procurement, oversight, client-side professional and managed services. The future is promising for TMG, with our healthy pipeline and our ever-growing pool of the most talented people in the industry joining our organization. We continue to onboard coveted industry professionals which is a testament to our organizational culture and a true benefit to our clients and the industry.
“One of our biggest growth areas has been in the professional services arena and we decided to acquire ESC, a market leading global services team to complete our offering. Pam Glanvill, COO of the organizations, has been instrumental for TMG’s exponential growth in our professional services practice, and her leadership combined with Bauer and Kumar will continue with the combined forces. We are excited for our future and look forward to providing independent Advisory Services and Professional Services for investor-owned, municipal and cooperative utilities, and the vendors who serve them, for many years to come.”
With market changes, such as cloud adoption of customer initiatives and more agile approaches to implementations, TMG’s senior leadership felt that ESC’s experience with early adopters of Utilities on Cloud would enhance the company’s market leading position. TMG is currently supporting more Cloud CIS projects than anyone in the industry, including SaaS and PaaS for tier-1 CIS solutions across utilities of all sizes.
The senior leadership team of both these organizations is highly respected in the industry and many are frequent contributors to industry events and publications. The underlying support team is equally talented and respected.
According to Bauer, “In our industry, people make all the difference and we have the best Advisory Professionals available in the market today. We have added a significant amount of talent to our team over the last 18 months and will continue to do so. Our clients desire highly skilled, independent advisors who can help them solve their most complicated technology and business decisions without unnecessary bias toward specific products or downstream services. Along with that, our clients look to us to help them execute these plans and initiatives in an efficient and effective manner from a professional services perspective. Joining forces with ESC allow us to expand our professional services offerings and helps us realize our vision of being the leading advisory and services provider in the utility industry. The acquisition of ESC allows us to expand our offshore, cloud and managed service offerings as well.”
According to RJ Kumar, CEO and President of ESC, “This union is extremely positive for us and our clients; we are thrilled to be joining forces with TMG. By more than doubling our size means that significantly more utilities benefit from our combined experience and expertise around mission critical systems.”
