Canco Cranes and Equipment LTD is a leading manufacturer of overhead cranes and material handling equipment. For more than 35 years, the North Vancouver company has been engineering, building, installing, and servicing equipment for customers around the world. For more than a decade, Canco Cranes has relied on one ERP solution – Sage 300 (formerly Sage ERP Accpac) expertly supported by BAASS Business Solutions.

Canco Cranes has relied on Sage 300 since it was a DOS product. “When we were preparing to upgrade to the Windows version back in 2002, we engaged BAASS Business Solutions,” recalls Craig Hammond, sales representative for Canco Cranes. “They came in and did a full business assessment. They tailored their proposal to our business needs and showed us where we could go with the product. For the past ten years we have relied on BAASS Business Solutions to support our system, advise us on its best use, and to keep our system current.”
