FARMINGTON HILLS — The TM Group, provider of Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM products and services since 1984, Tuesday announced a move into a new headquarters in Farmington Hills.
The new office allows all of its employees in eastern Michigan to be located in consolidated suite, and gives them growth room and improved customer service.
Designed to foster inter-team collaboration and increase productivity, the new headquarters incorporates TM Group’s executive management, sales and marketing, client support services, consulting and development.
Having been headquartered in Farmington Hills for 25 years in two previous locations, the new 6,700 square feet suite at the Farmington Hills Corporate Campus is located at the southeast corner of 12 Mile and Halsted Roads.
The TM Group equipped their first floor suite with new work centers, furniture and a state-of-the-art VOIP communications and conferencing solution.
“This move fosters collaboration and boosts productivity for the entire team which was split into two separate suites at our prior location,” said Ken Jacobsen, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Thanks to our new communication system and consolidated and enhanced server control room, we will be able to continue our growth while reducing our costs.”
The new office includes a reception area, sixteen offices, four conference and meeting rooms, a training room, a library, a media room, and a large contemporary kitchen. Additionally, they created a “refresh room” including such amenities as a large screen television, stereo, blue-ray player, Xbox, refrigerator, reclining sofa and recliner – all designed so the team has a place to relax, unwind and de-stress.
All of the offices have wood framed doors with glass inserts, allowing natural light into the suite for the workstation area and interior offices. This provides an energetic and ecologically improved work environment and reduces energy costs.
So far, the company says, the plan is working. Thanks to the new communication and conferencing system and extensive conference and meeting facilities, The TM Group will be able to cut its communication costs, improve corporate-wide communication and expand their collaborative environment.
“May began our 29th year as a highly successful Michigan-based business technology consulting firm — a tremendous milestone of achievement and a great time for us to consolidate in this new corporate headquarters,” said Judy Thomas, TM Group president. “We are one of only a handful of Microsoft Dynamics partners worldwide who have nearly three continuous decades with the same management team, product family, and with the most tenured team of certified Dynamics consultants in our area. We made a special effort to provide a more updated environment for our team and a welcoming environment for our clients, prospects, and visitors.”
Ms. Thomas added: “I cannot fully express how proud I am of our team’s longstanding dedication to staying at the forefront of our industry for both Microsoft Dynamics product expertise and exceptional customer service. We are especially proud of our loyal clients, and in searching for new corporate offices, we wanted a beautiful space and amenities that reflected our strong commitment to excellence for both employees and clients alike. We were very fortunate to have worked with some fantastic Michigan partners such as Ultracom, The Synergy Group, Kojaian Management, Kentwood Office Furniture, Artiste Furniture Restoration and Art Van Furniture to help us realize our dream.”
A regional sales and consulting office will remain in Grand Rapids, in its current location of 1514 Wealthy St., Suite 246.
