Upon completing the development of templates that interface EDI400 software with that of JD Edwards, Lawson's, SAP, MAPICS, BPCS, and other software packages, Mr. Spurlock established the Professional Services division where, as the National Director of Professional Services, he was responsible for establishing the EDI400 department and growing it into a department generating $1.2M in revenue. During two decades in the consulting industry, Mr. Spurlock has acquired in-depth knowledge of the supply chain - from manufacturing to logistics and retail. In addition, he brings experience in insurance and workers' compensation to the table. Mr. Spurlock's longstanding relationship with the supply chain software companies whose applications enable electronic business transactions and his breadth of experience in the field of EDI systems development uniquely qualify him as an expert resource for B2 Integration's clients.
