Leading contract research organization goes live on Microsoft’s flagship ERP software platform

SEATTLE, WA – JUNE 10, 2013

sa.global, the leading global provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solutions for project-driven organizations, has announced a recent client go-live on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This client is a Top 10 preclinical Contract Research Organization (CRO) with offices in the United States and Europe. sa.global worked with this organization to deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 as the organization’s new global ERP software system.

This CRO provides product safety toxicological research, bio-analytical, and formulation services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, agrochemical, and food products industries, as well as manufacturing support for clinical trials. They have over 1,000 employees supporting operations in Europe and the United States.

Used by over 17,000 organizations around the world, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is Microsoft’s flagship Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software platform. With modules for Financial Management, Project Management & Accounting, Customer Relationship Management, Human Resource Management, and Supply Chain Management, Microsoft Dynamics AX is capable of helping project-driven organizations manage their finances, projects, clients, and resources all in a single easy-to-use system.

“We’re very excited to have completed our initial rollout of Microsoft Dynamics AX”, explained the client’s Director of Information Technology. “Dynamics AX will provide our business with a global platform that will improve our visibility across our international operations, drive business process efficiencies, and put critical information in the hands of key decision makers. The team from sa.global was instrumental in helping us design the best possible global solution and in determining how to best leverage the capabilities in Dynamics AX to meet our business requirements.”

This CRO is now using Microsoft Dynamics AX for their financial management, project accounting, human resource management and procurement activities. In addition to implementing the core Dynamics AX project accounting functionality, sa.global implemented the Advanced Projects solution for Dynamics AX from Adeaca Corporation. Advanced Projects is a best-in-class project and portfolio management solution that is embedded in Dynamics AX, providing project-based businesses with a powerful suite of tools to manage even their most complex projects.

“This successful go-live is the culmination of a great deal of hard work on the part of both of our organizations”, said Rita Clinton, US Country Manager for sa.global. “We’re confident that Dynamics AX will provide our client with a strong platform on which to further grow and expand their business well into the future, and we look forward to continuing our partnership moving forward.”
