Leading multi-disciplinary A/E/C firm to implement next generation Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP software system to provide platform for continued growth and expansion

Seattle, WA – May 4, 2016

sa.global, the leading global provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solutions and services for Architecture/Engineering/Construction firms and other professional services organizations, today announced that Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson (JMT) has selected Microsoft Dynamics AX as their new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software platform. sa.global and JMT are now working together to replace several of JMT’s existing business systems with a new integrated ERP and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform based on Microsoft Dynamics technology. The Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation is being led by Microsoft partner, AEC360.

Headquartered in Sparks, MD with offices across the United States, JMT is a 100% employee-owned firm that provides a full range of multi-disciplinary engineering, architectural, and related services to public agencies and private clients. JMT has more than 1,300 professionals including engineers, architects, planners, environmental scientists, surveyors, construction inspectors, designers, CADD technicians, and GIS and information technology specialists. JMT provides planning, design, surveying and mapping, construction inspection, and environmental consulting services in markets that include transportation, building and facilities, water/wastewater/utilities, energy, IT, and federal programs.

“At JMT, we’ve been experiencing rapid growth as we look to expand our business into new markets and geographies, as well as to achieve the scale that we believe will optimize our ability to serve our client base into the future,” explained Bill Smith, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for JMT. “Our legacy software systems were no longer able to support this growth in an efficient manner, so we set out to evaluate new enterprise software platforms that would take us into the future. After reviewing a number of alternatives that included both traditional ERP providers and niche A/E/C solutions, we selected the new Microsoft Dynamics AX based on its proven scalability, its flexibility to accommodate unique and changing business needs, and its ability to leverage many of the other Microsoft technologies that we use every day. We chose sa.global as our implementation partner based on their experience in the A/E/C industry and their ability to understand even our most complex business requirements.”

Used by over 20,000 organizations around the world, Microsoft Dynamics AX is Microsoft’s flagship Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software platform. The Service Industries version of Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a comprehensive industry solution for project-driven organizations, which sa.global has further extended with their ProjAX industry solution for A/E/C firms. The combined solution will allow JMT to manage their finances, projects, clients, and resources within an integrated platform.

JMT will implement the newest release of Microsoft Dynamics AX, which was developed using a number of next-generation technologies. The new Dynamics AX offers a fully mobile-enabled HTML5 user interface that runs on any platform, any device, and any form factor. Dynamics AX drives productivity and improves visibility through tight integration with Microsoft’s newest technologies such as Office365 and Power BI, and was architected to be natively deployed on the Microsoft Azure cloud, or as a traditional on-premise implementation where desired.

“We’re thrilled to welcome JMT to the sa.global and Microsoft Dynamics AX family”, explained Oli Gunnarsson, CEO for sa.global’s US operations. “We’ve worked very hard over the years to align ourselves with leading A/E/C firms like JMT, and look forward to bringing our industry expertise to this critical business initiative. We’re confident that we’ll be able to add distinct value to JMT’s business, while helping them implement a modern technology platform that they can leverage to manage and grow their business for many years to come.”
