Current and Past Cleo/EXTOL Engagements -- Updated: August 1st, 2022

Background of Sean Hoppe:

When Sean left EXTOL he became an end-user he found himsef scouring the internet for tips and instructions. When he came up empty handed, he knew he was not the only individual in the same situation as himself.

Since 2006 our group has been assisting future, current, and past customers via our website instructions, news releases, downladable tech memos and youTube videos. With hundreds of FREE postings available, we consider ourselves the de facto CLEO/EXTOL knowledge base

We strive to provide great value in our free on-line postings. If organizations' Cleo users, directors, managers and business users find great value on our websites, they will see that we espouse the same virtues wtih our Cleo on-site/remote services.

Cleo/EXTOL Experience:

The founder, Sean Hoppe, has 24+ years experience performing Cleo/EXTOL implementations for financial firms, manufacturers, distributors, logistics and healthcare companies.

For 7 years Sean was member of EXTOL International in Pottsville, PA. While at EXTOL, Sean held roles in the services/implementation group, development and technical support providing level 2 and 3 application support.

In addition to implementation experience, Sean has been using EXTOL products for 14 years as an Cleo/EXTOL client. This experience can make a difference when it comes to resolving with day to day issues, system architecture, and error resolutions.

Cleo Case Studies:

We highlight our accomplishments with our sister website
Our Cleo Clarify Case Studios show how we approach assisting organizaztions with leveraging Cleo Clarify.
The Cleo EDI Integrator Case Studios document how we roll-out services with EDI Integrator clients.

Cleo Services: Remote/On-Site

We provide remote and on-site services at a fraction of the cost our competitors. Depending on the project particulars: length, complexity, and etc; we work with organizations to make the determination if we should be on-site with their Cleo end-users and stakeholders (ie. Business users/analysts).

Being daily avid users of the Cleo suite of products, we bring a unique in-site during all implementations. We can assist as a part-time resource, or as a full-time resource; we adjust as organizations scale-up and scale-down

The training our group offers is specialized where we walk Cleo customers thru their set-ups and current projects. During the training we review where and how best practices can be used.

The Sean Hoppe Consulting Group Difference between us and other firms

Us and the Rest:

Better Value with a Better Price: When customers compare our prices to the level of service, we win hands down. We do not have the bloated infrastructure where customers have to pay the salary of a President, Salesman, and Services Director.

We Will Show Up Location: For projects that are long in duration (6+ months) we will offer to come on location. This type of interaction enhances the Clarify's customer experience, by working side-by-side with our Cleo trained experts.

Investing in Education: From the moment our customers visit one of our many websites, we are constantly staying abreast of new Cleo/EXTOL methods and functionality. Between our constantly updated EverythingCleo Twitter Feed, our Cleo/EXTOL Blog, EBI 3 Tech Memos, and Clarify Tech Memos, we keep our customers educated about new techniques and methodology.

In addition to creating free documentation and free posts, we offer free Cleo Clarify YouTube Videos. We find the best Clarify user to be the informed Clarify user.

NO Sales People: We are tech people just like you. We understand your challenges and we wear multiple hats just like you. We can help you resolve your Cleo/EXTOL issues and help with you project planning, without the selling. With NO SALES people, we are able to pass the savings to our Cleo customers.

Exclusively Support Cleo/EXTOL: In today's world it is hard to be an expert in everything. Where some firms tout experience with EVERYTHING; we broadcast our exclusive Cleo/EXTOL experience and the inter workings of their solutions.

Implement Best Practices: Organizations looking for Cleo/Extol consultants dedicate time and money to find/utilize outside assistance. Being in a single location with experienced Cleo/EXTOL users, we have a great internal support structure that allows us to support each other, promote quality control, and ensure end-users we are not learning the product on the customer's dime.

We Dominate our Space: We show current and future customers how to empower themselves with Cleo products for FREE; not many companies can make this claim. We have been giving away free tips, advice, error resolutions and free consultations since 2006. We don't get paid for our FREE instructions, tips and articles; we enjoy assisting fellow Cleo users.

Authentic: What you see is what you get. We are working day in and day out using the Cleo suite of products. We do not hype other products. We do not sell services that are not needed.

Cleo/EXTOL Resources:

We employ and contract former Cleo, EXTOL employees who know and use Cleo solutions and apply best industry practices. Combined we have 45 years experience of using EXTOL/Cleo solutions in the form of support, training, and development. Our full-time employees and contractors are customer centric.
