We firmly believe that choosing the right partner is just as important as choosing the right ERP solution. That's why here at ProjectLine we focus on the human side of ERP – putting your people first to create technology solutions that truly work for them.
As a leading Canadian ERP partner for over 15 years, we know ERP inside out. In fact, we've been through an implementation ourselves. You might say we test the solution every day.
Our ERP experts have a depth of industry knowledge, a keen understanding of business process, and deep technological expertise that uniquely positions us to understand your business almost as well as you do. We’re here for you every step of the way – through implementation and beyond. Our goal is to transition you to an ERP solution with the highest level of empathy, consideration and fit.
From the onset of your ERP project, we implement the human touch. We go the extra mile to put ourselves in your shoes and understand the critical factors in your business. We work with you to manage risk and keep to the timeline that suits you best. Throughout every stage of the project, we keep in regular contact to ensure you have plenty of opportunity to provide feedback and recommendations.
Our work doesn’t end with implementation. We work with you to ease the transition for your people through dedicated training sessions and ongoing learning opportunities. And as changes arise in your business, we’re here to help you find new solutions that enable your business to thrive.
The first thing we implement is the human touch. Before you invest in us, we invest in you. Prospective customers appreciate that we go the extra mile to meet face-to-face and deliver an insightful, customized and highly engaging presentation that speaks uniquely to them.
We bring empathy to technology to serve your aspirations. We never lose sight of the fact that we build ERP solutions for people first. In the service of technology, we will never ignore culture and humanity.
We work backwards from what success looks like for you. Before we tailor our solutions, we open up every last wall. We put ourselves in your shoes and go deep to understand the critical factors in your business to create an ERP implementation experience, customer journey and end product that will exceed your expectations.
We have the IP to customize with intent. If we don’t have the ERP solution that fits your needs, we will source and rigorously evaluate the best third-party software for the job. In the absence of the perfect solution, we’ll build one for you ourselves.
We look at success futuristically. With a keen eye on technological and business trends and innovations, we look ahead to understand where your industry is going and what your business will need, not just tomorrow, but 10 years from now. Our software solutions are engineered to anticipate and evolve with the times.
Our leadership group brings a broad range of experience that guides us in creating the optimal ERP experience for our customers.

It’s August 15, 2001 – our shareholders, all former colleagues, were sitting around a kitchen table discussing their future paths. Did they part ways and each move on to new opportunities? Or did they band together and start a new venture of their own?
The very next day, a hot sales lead came their way, almost by accident. And so, over the course of the following weekend, they selected a company name, rented office space (in the form of a converted hotel room) and created a website. Just like that, ProjectLine Solutions was formed. Less than a month later, we landed our first contract developing one of the first web-based enterprise applications in the mining industry. We even provided our customer with the ability to print from the web – a major innovation at that time!
Things moved quickly in the early days and we’ve kept up the same pace ever since. We started out as a custom software development company with a team of four. In 2004, we had the opportunity to become an SAP Business One reseller. At another crossroads, our shareholders had a decision to make. Did we continue with the custom development business? Or did we branch out into the ERP market? Maybe it was crazy, but we’re an ambitious bunch, so we chose to do both. And in just four short years, we achieved SAP gold partner status, which we still hold today.
Fast forward to present day…we've maintained both sides of the business and expanded our ERP solutions to include NetSuite - the #1 cloud ERP for growing businesses. We're one of the few Canadian ERP partners that has the development expertise to extend ERP software beyond standard expectations and create truly powerful technology solutions.
With locations across Canada, we’re now a team of nearly 40 and we're driven by our vision to be the undisputed leaders in creating the optimal ERP experience. That nimble, ambitious small business mindset that got us started is still central to how we work – it's what keeps people at the center of everything we do.
At ProjectLine, we’re all about people. Our focus is on delivering solutions to our customers that bring technology and people together. We look for team players that embody that sentiment and are driven to help other small and mid-size Canadian companies thrive. Sound like you? Apply to join our growing team!
