About Us

Delivering 100% Independent Advice & Consulting in ERP and Digital Transformation 

Australia & NZ’s #1 Independent Experts in ERP, Enterprise Software and Process Improvement.

Solution Minds Consulting (SMC) is Australia and NZ’s #1 independent consulting company specialising in ERP, Enterprise Software, Digital Optimisation and Business Process Improvement

SMC’s CEO and Founder – Jamon Johnston – worked for 11 years with global consulting organisations Andersen and then Deloitte Consulting, where he was a Director providing strategic advice and delivering large scale ERP implementations. Jamon realised the market was in desperate need of a truly 100% independent consulting firm that provided ‘Big Consulting’ type services at better value with a more specialised focus. In 2006, SMC was formed to address a serious problem affecting all industries – biased advice, vendors taking advantage of inexperienced organisations and far too many failed projects. 

SMC’s purpose is to ensure your ERP or digital transformation is a success and reduce the enterprise software industry’s unacceptably high failure rates, project by project.

The SMC team has successfully delivered 250+ business process and systems improvement projects and love working with clients to:

  • Conduct strategic reviews to align stakeholders and develop a clear roadmap for an ERP or digital optimisation journey
  • Rapidly map, analyse and improve business processes
  • Define business requirements for new systems using our extensive database 
  • Select the best enterprise software for our client’s needs, applying deep knowledge of the Aus. and NZ technology market and broad industry experience
  • Develop compelling business cases for change 
  • Set projects up for success through our unique implementation planning and readiness offering to minimise risks   
  • Lead and manage implementations of new ERP and enterprise solutions
  • Help clients accept new systems and ways of working to achieve high levels of productivity through pragmatic organisational change management
  • Independently review projects and recommend remediation activities
  • Conduct post implementation reviews to assess degree of success and ROI
