ABOUT RSC      

Shortly after university, Steve Reiff and Phil Sandstrom met while working at the Portland, Oregon office of Arthur Young & Company (one of the then “Big-8” auditing and consulting firms).  After a few years of interesting and varied projects in Arthur Young’s management consulting group they formed a startup consulting and software company named Sandstrom, Reiff & Company in February of 1984.  This company grew and morphed into SRC Software, known for its unique spreadsheet-based budgeting and planning applications and superior customer service.  In 2005, with hundreds of employees and thousands of customers throughout the world, SRC Software was sold to Business Objects (who was acquired by SAP).

During the twenty years of managing SRC Software, Steve and Phil learned how to organically grow a best-of-breed services company throughout North America and in Europe and Asia.  This hands-on experience in all aspects of running a profitable, robust company extended to their project work with their customers.  The installation of a new budgeting or planning application involves close interaction with the customer to optimally design their application.  This consultative approach to customer service became a trademark of SRC’s commitment to excellence.  Steve and Phil have in-depth experience in many industries including banking, healthcare, hospitality, and manufacturing.

In forming RSC Consulting, Steve and Phil will utilize this experience to provide some of the most difficult, yet valuable, consulting services focused on key aspects of planning, reporting, and analytics.

So, where did “RSC” come from?  Well, long ago, Steve felt that the original company name should have been Reiff, Sandstrom & Company.  R comes before S and he is the “senior” founder (by a few months) rationalized Steve.  However, Phil and both of their wives voted for Sandstrom, Reiff & Company – “it just sounds better”.  After 20 years with SRC, our new company will have Steve’s name come first, thus Reiff, Sandstrom & Company Consulting, LLC.  Fair is fair, after all...
