“As sa.global has continued to expand our global footprint and our volume of multi-national client projects has increased, it has become critical that we utilize an integrated global project management platform that will help our distributed team better collaborate and execute our projects in a consistent manner,” explained Brian Lounds, Group CFO for sa.global. “Microsoft Dynamics AX™ provides an industry solution that has allowed us to automate and streamline key project-related business processes such as time and expense management and billing. And because it is deployed in the cloud, we’re able to minimize the overhead associated with maintaining our ERP system. Fortunately, our experience implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX™ for other global professional services organizations has made it possible for us to be a successful early adopter of this technology as part of Microsoft’s TAP program.”
