OnPoint Team

We are a customer-focused organization. Our strategy is to understand your business, and then utilize current technologies so that you achieve your goals.

OnPoint's History

Founded in 1989, OnPoint Software Consulting, Inc., began as a CPA firm headed by Mike Pieczynski, who brings over 25 years’ experience working with construction, real estate, service companies, and corporate owner/developers. For nearly 20 years 100% of OnPoint’s focus has been on helping construction companies maximize profits with processes and effective use of construction accounting, project management, and field operations software.

After an 18-year relationship as a key contractor to Sage Timberline Professional Services Group, Mike and his team felt there needed to be more focus on helping construction and service companies manage profits and grow with their construction software. Today, OnPoint continues to assist existing Sage 300 CRE users get more from their current software, and is also an authorized reseller of Viewpoint’s Spectrum® and Vista products, delivering solutions to the construction and service industries using the latest emerging technologies.

As owner of OnPoint Consulting, Mike works closely with OnPoint Business Development, consultants and Client Care on ongoing projects. Additionally, Mike works with all aspects of software publisher relationships as part of OnPoint’s “Trusted Advisor” initiatives for clients and prospects.

After an 18-year relationship as a key contractor to Sage Timberline Professional Services Group, Mike and his team felt there needed to be more focus on helping construction and service companies manage profits and grow with their construction software. Mike left the longtime relationship with Timberline Corporate to be available directly to end users, Timberline dealers, and other consultants. A few years later Mike and his team began looking for next-generation software, eventually starting a relationship with Dexter + Chaney (now Viewpoint). In 2014, Mike started working with Spectrum, becoming certified in 2015.

Prior to OnPoint, Mike served as a CFO at a construction company in Missouri, and before that as the administrative partner of Renshaw and Pieczynski, CPA’s, focusing in the construction industry.
