Eleanor Mullaney began working for Cornerstone Consulting Inc. in 2001, as a Marketing Director. At that time, Cornerstone did not have a team of marketing professionals on staff. So, Eleanor planned, organized, coordinated, and oversaw all marketing and advertising campaigns, promotional activities, community development initiatives as well as assets and collateral. She communicated effective marketing messaging in various media formats. Understanding that software and technology trends rapidly changed, she made maintaining a current, working knowledge of the various industry associations, trade groups, and media outlets a top priority.

As “the Internet of Things (IoT)” evolved, Eleanor defined key marketing metrics for inbound marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), website content, social media activities, product penetration and enhancing customer satisfaction. Eleanor wrote content for the: corporate websites, company newsletter, press releases, and (eventually) Cornerstone’s company blog. She was an early adopter of social media and created company profiles to engage the community. Even though she was a “one woman operation”, the website content management and social media work she performed not only brought in more local Tampa Bay ERP software business, but attracted leads from all over the United States.

Utilizing creativity to achieve goals has always been part of Eleanor Mullaney‘s nature. As a child, her leadership skills, commitment to teamwork, and zeal to help others was evident in her involvement in numerous activities. During her youth, Eleanor sang in district choirs, played classical music for piano recitals, and even served as the lead conductor for an orchestra when she was only in sixth grade. In addition to participating in school plays and musical productions like Free to Be, In seventh grade, when she made the Varsity teams for field hockey and lacrosse, it was evident that she was a natural athlete. She played on many teams including: basketball, softball, swimming, and also won many awards as a gymnast. As her Uncle, Joe Mullaney,  was a famous college and NBA coach, Eleanor had the privilege of attending many phenomenal basketball games. She spent many summer days water skiing, and racing her hobie cat catamaran on Damariscotta Lake, in Maine. During the winter months, Eleanor enjoyed snow skiing in the Poconos, PA, Lake Placid, NY, and at many other ski resorts on the East Coast. In addition to being creative and athletic, she was involved in student government, tutored children, and organized a variety community service groups throughout her young adulthood. She even founded an outreach program for kids while at Moore College.

When Elle’s not applying her leadership skills to help executives streamline their operations, she celebrates the artistic side of her life. As a trained classical pianist, singer, dancer (i.e. salsa, west coast swing and cha-cha), commissioned portrait artist, improv comedy group member and writer, she has an absolute blast sharing creative endeavors with others in the community. It is interesting to note that Eleanor Mullaney’s Dad’s Grandmother was a Cassidy. Some of Eleanor’s famous cousins are Jack, David and Shaun Cassidy. Eleanor jokes that her love of the theater “runs in the family”. Recently, Elle was cast in the role of Tanna, for the stage adaptation of the movie, Plan 9 From Outer Space. She was also offered a role in a local production of Miracle on 34th Street.

From classical to hip-hop, Eleanor loves all kinds of music. Interestingly, if you ask her what her favorite rock band is, she’ll tell you that it is Boston. She has the greatest respect for Tom Scholz (and his wife, Kim), Gary Pihl, Tracy Ferrie, Curly Smith, and the rest of the band not only for the fabulous music they share with all of us, but also how much good they do in the world.

Elle believes strongly in helping others and giving back to the community. She gives 10 % of her salary to worthy causes. Eleanor devotes a lot of her personal time to raising awareness, generating support, and participating in events that raise money for many worthy causes. Recently, Eleanor raised funds for breast cancer awareness and research by participating in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Treasure Chests 5k. She has also raised funds, volunteered, and attended the Florida Suncoast Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

The Beginnings Of ERP And How It Has Evolved

The Year 2000 problem (also known as the Y2K problem, the Millennium bug, the Y2K bug, or simply Y2K) was a problem for both digital (computer-related) and non-digital documentation and data storage situations which resulted from the practice of abbreviating a four-digit year to two digits.

In 1997, The British Standards Institute (BSI) developed a standard (DISC PD2000-1) which identified two major problems that existed in many computer programs.

First, the practice of representing the year with two digits becomes problematic with logical error(s) arising upon “rollover” from x99 to x00. This has caused some date-related processing to operate incorrectly for dates and times on and after 1 January 2000, and on other critical dates which were billed “event horizons”. Without corrective action, long-working systems would break down when the “…97, 98, 99, 00…” ascending numbering assumption suddenly became invalid.

Secondly, some programmers had misunderstood the rule that although years that are evenly divisible by 100 are not leap years, if they are divisible by 400 then they are. Thus the year 2000 was a leap year.

Companies and organizations worldwide checked, fixed, and upgraded their computer systems. That led to scrutiny and rearrangement of ERP systems. Information Technology (IT) companies experienced rapid growth in the 1990s because the year 2000 problem and introduction of the Euro disrupted legacy systems. Many companies took this opportunity to replace legacy systems with ERP. The rapid growth IT companies experienced from ERP implementations was followed by a slump in sales after these issues had been addressed.

ERP systems initially focused on automating back office functions that did not directly affect customers and the general public. Front office functions such as customer relationship management (CRM) dealt directly with customers, or e-business systems such as e-commerce, e-government, e-telecom, and e-finance, or supplier relationship management (SRM) became integrated later, when the Internet simplified communicating with external parties.

“ERP II” was coined in the early 2000s. It describes web-based software that allows both employees and partners (such as suppliers and customers) real-time access to the systems. The role of ERP II expands from the resource optimization and transaction processing of traditional ERP to leveraging the information involving those resources in the enterprise’s efforts to collaborate with other enterprises, not just to conduct e-commerce buying and selling. Compared to the first generation ERP, ERP II is said to be more flexible rather than confining the capabilities of the ERP system within the organization, it is designed to go beyond the corporate walls and interact with other systems. “Enterprise application suite” is an alternate name for such systems.

As a trusted partner of SAP since 2005, Cornerstone continues to provide SAP Business One ERP business management software and related technical services to small and midsized companies within the wholesale distribution, manufacturing, and online retail industries.  The flexibility of SAP Business One (SAP B1), when combined with the customization expertise of Cornerstone Consulting, allows a company to implement a totally integrated ERP business management solution, designed to meet its specific business needs. Now, instead of your employees adapting to the software, with SAP Business One’s fully integrated accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), inventory tracking-control-management, and material requirement planning (MRP), the system can adapt to the needs of your business.

The Cornerstone Consulting staff understands that business owners do not have time to learn the intricacies of a complicated software program in order to effectively and efficiently operate their enterprises. If time is money, then wasted time is wasted money. SAP Business One has many benefits to offer including instant, “real time” access to information from finance, manufacturing, and sales departments. In addition, users of SAP Business One can make more informed decisions by generating accurate, up-to-the-minute analytics with the built-in Crystal Reports. The system also has automatic “workflow alerts” which provide users with warnings based on individualized business rules concerning data. This permits immediate action in the event of an emergency. Such an “early warning system” allows businesses to anticipate problems and concerns ahead of time, which can save both time and money. Further, the platform is designed to be a mobile ERP solution and can run on iPads and iPhones.
