Announcing the retirement of one of SK Global’s most beloved team members – Ralph Spice.

Ralph Spice

Ralph has been the voice of our support desk for products running on Microsoft Dynamics SL (eBanking, Project Work Order, Work Order Procurement, and Shop Floor Control) since the early days of Sandler*Kahne Software (SK Global’s predecessor). We get many, many comments from our SL customers that they absolutely love Ralph!

A Little History:

Prior to Rick Sandler and Tim Kahne founding Sandler*Kahne Software (SK) in 1994, Rick & Ralph, both having backgrounds in consulting with manufacturers, collaborated on a few manufacturing engagements. After SK launched Work Order & Project Work Order for SL (then Solomon), the next project on the table was Shop Floor Control w/Capacity Scheduling. Rick asked Ralph to collaborate on the design of the module. Although his initial relationship with SK was as a consultant, he soon became SK’s 3rd employee.

As SK launched the eBanking Suite for Solomon, which was the natural evolution of Tim’s AP Direct Deposit, Ralph quickly mastered that product…and the rest is history.

Over the years, as we attended SL events, we were consistently asked “where’s Ralph?” They wanted to put a face to his name and voice. We always kidded Ralph that he was like Mr. Wilson on Tool Time (starring Tim Allen)…the neighbor we always heard but never saw!…

Wilson From Home Improvement

When Sandler*Kahne Software evolved into SK Global Software (SKG) on January 1, 2015, Ralph continued to support our SL customers. As Microsoft Dynamic F&O fueled the expansion of SKG, our SL customer base continued to grow. Ralph single-handedly kept up with the support of our SL customers.

Ralph – thank you for all your contributions over the years. We wish you all good things in your retirement years!
