Dennis Sands is the Founder and CEO of First Call Consulting. Over his 20 year career in the SAP field, Dennis started and ran 4 successful Managed Services organizations.

So, about 8 years ago he started First Call consulting, specializing in providing small and mid sized companies using SAP short term help for support and projects. Dennis has worked very hard over the last 8 years and one of the things he is most proud of is winning SAPs highest award for Customer Service, confirming First Call’s high quality of service and our extreme focus on customer satisfaction.
