Dynamics AX

An ERP platform for efficient,
agile and innovative businesses.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions are created in order to significantly improve the capabilities and efficiencies of a number of key departments within enterprise organisations, including IT, Finance, Sales, Retail and Manufacturing.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP software, Dynamics AX, gives organisations the ability to better manage and simplify day-to-day operations and respond to changes in an agile way. With short implementation times, whether in the cloud or on-premise, Dynamics AX gives businesses the tools to thrive in their marketplace, with these benefits:

  • The ability to meet business requirements with purpose-built solutions tailored to a range of different and unique industries.
  • Unified natural models that represent your business structure, policies and processes will facilitate responding quickly to new opportunities.
  • An interface that looks and operates like the well-known Microsoft Office makes it easy for new users to access data.

Dynamics AX by Sector

Retail

Creating true omni-channel experiences involves more than simply offering several sales channels to customers. Dynamics AX incorporates bespoke retail functionality to support vital functions including Finance, Procurement, Merchandising, Supply Chain and Distribution. Set-up and configuration elements like range, price and offers, through to front-end sales via POS or online, are catered for in a comprehensive solution which negates the need to integrate any third-party technologies. The benefits include:

  • The ability to operate integrated e-commerce platforms, thanks to a central information area which collates customer behaviour and buying patterns from all sales channels.
  • Detailed sales tracking and reporting by product, category, region, store, channel or any other metric relevant to the business. Dynamics AX records all information related to each and every transaction.
  • Reduced time to market for new online channels or stores. The structure of AX involves creating small items, inputting information for range and products, as well as inputting information prices and logistics information at a central level.
  • Leveraging the capabilities of mobile POS for tablets and smartphones to create additional “tills” for line busting and pop-up stores. Dynamics AX increases the footprint and reach of physical stores with the use of more flexible and customized technology and also maximizes revenue during peak seasons such as Christmas or at events such as festivals.

Public sector

Dynamics AX includes a range of flexible features designed specifically for public sector organisations, which help them to improve budget management and overall accountability, transparency and performance in a more operationally-efficient and agile way. The three core benefits include:

  • Access to real-time information, tasks and business processes that can be tailored to roles right across the organisation, including lists of unified work queues, visualised tasks, business processes and reports, KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and other information, customised to each user;
  • Simplified data access with other familiar Microsoft programs including Word, Excel and SharePoint; and
  • Improved productivity and management information based on a user experience that again can be tailored to roles and consistent in all enterprise portals and each client’s Windows interfaces.

For transparency and budgetary control, role-based security can be implemented with online capabilities through the native feature, Financial Dimensions, which helps teams to build budget and control simulations with different levels, variables and hierarchies. Accounting forecasts and actual expenditure can be produced to give stakeholders visibility of financial commitments, and advanced reports can be generated in line with the specific accounting requirements that public bodies are bound by.

Manufacturing

The tasks of managing manufacturing processes, lean manufacturing, discrete manufacturing and manufacturing product configurators is made easier when using Dynamics AX across the organisation. Built using applied knowledge of each business’s supply chain and manufacturing lifecycle, the solution provides a robust framework to assist with production planning from the data sheet of each product. Companies in the manufacturing sector can benefit from:

  • Management of automatic cost production orders generated from product data sheets (BOM (Bill Of Materials) and Roadmap), to better forecast the cost of each product
  • Improved quality control during each stage of the production process, right from the point when raw materials arrive on-site; and
  • Advanced inventory management for both the full range of raw materials and finished products, as well as optimised inventory using either the FIFO (First In First Out) and FEFO (First Expired First Out) management methods.

Service

The success of many businesses is based on effective project management, resource management and communications, enabled by comprehensive, adaptable business applications. These applications, when configured to the individual business, can reduce overall costs and increase client and customer satisfaction. The benefits of Dynamics AX for service providers in this industry are:

  • The ability to offer an improved range of truly client-centric services, which can be further upgraded and adapted based on the increasingly high standards that customers demand; and
  • Real-time management information covering every aspect relating to their clients combined with the right features to enable them to deliver results that exceed client expectations.
