Smart Business Soft is a consulting company for ERP system implementation, created by Alexander Tsvetanov and Ivaylo Demirev. This is the first project out of the pilot startup program that ERP.BG created to support entrepreneurs in the field of business software.

 

 

The company received from ERP.BG everything necessary for development of their business - from office space, through equipment and licensed software, to mentoring and other forms of support. Preparations for the launch of Smart Business Soft lasted about a year, and the company currently works independently on projects provided by ERP.BG, as well as on projects jointly with us.


Alexander Tsvetanov and Ivaylo Demirev know each other from the University of National and World Economy (UNWE) and also work together on another joint project - online supermarket Marzelivo.com. Prior to that, each of them had been attracted by the segment of business software individually. At UNWE, they met Dr. Natalia Foutekova, who was an assistant at the university, as well as a managing partner at ERP.BG. Soon after, she invited them to become partners of ERP.BG, which needed more deployment teams.

"By joining the partner program, we got access to assets that would have taken us years to afford them. But most importantly, we were trained by the best employees of ERP.BG, and we could ask questions and receive professional answers at any time.“ - said Alexander Tsvetanov










 

"When the opportunity to join the partner program of ERP.BG emerged, Ivaylo already had three years of experience in implementing similar systems, and I - one year. Having in mind the dynamic development in the industry and the growth of ERP.BG throughout the past year, we decided it was a good opportunity to start a consulting firm specialized in ERP system implementation. By joining the partner program, we got access to assets that would have taken us years to afford them. But most importantly, we were trained by the best employees of ERP.BG, and we could ask questions and receive professional answers at any time," said Alexander Tsvetanov.

During the initial training period, they were introduced to best practices in the implementation of ERP systems.

 

"We had the opportunity to closely follow the development of projects, their stages, the difficulties at every stage and the decisions that brought these projects to a successful end. At one point, we took different ways in our training, with one of us specializing in implementation, and the other - in sales. So together we formed a good team ready to develop a project from the first to the last step," added Ivaylo Demirev.


In June 2015, they started with a separate contract, which included deployment in 2 companies. Very soon, the number of their projects reached 9, which is a definite success for a startup in the field of consulting and implementation of ERP solutions.
