Finding the right implementation partner with the experience and expertise is not enough. Businesses have the option today to choose from vendors who go the extra mile and offer more.Microsoft Dynamics AX has been a dependable solution for enterprise businesses and for fast-growing mid-sized companies. If you are perusing through the list of Microsoft Dynamics AX ISV vendors, there are three aspects you have to consider before making a decision.

  • Do they have the relevant expertise to implement the solution quickly and safely?
  • Do they offer additional value to help streamline operations and extend the capabilities of Dynamics AX?
  • Do they own an IP that is relevant to your industry and unique business needs?

 

Find a Microsoft Partner who can do more

Implementing Dynamics AX is not enough. Most companies today have disparate systems that are spread across the globe, different business entities, or use different systems for different functions within the same business entity. What you need is a Microsoft Partner who knows how to make these systems talk to each other to ensure a smooth flow of data across different systems and streamline operations. By doing so, you give decision-makers a consolidated view of the business in real-time to help them spend less time trying to find the information and more time in gaining insights from the data.

Your Microsoft Dynamics AX ISV partner should offer speed

How long does a typical Dynamics AX implementation take? Depending on the complexity of the system, you are looking at timelines that can last for months or over a year in some cases. While most Microsoft Partners offer some form of a speedy implementation, you need to ask just how quickly can they deliver?

With sa.global’s rapid implementation toolkit – sa.go! you will see the implementation delivered in weeks which would otherwise have taken months.

How do we achieve these super-fast implementations? sa.go! was developed after learning from hundreds of implementations across the globe, and all these implementations are focused on Microsoft solutions. The toolkit comprises automated test scripts, industry-specific configurations, and more

Since sa.go! has everything pre-configured for each of the focus industries, all you need to do is plug in your data. With sa.go! you get 80 percent of the work pre-packaged and out-of-the-box. This will help the implementation team spend less time on the standard work and focus more on customizations and deriving more value from the system for your business.

A good implementation includes oversight at every stage

When do you find out that something is not working? If the only time you hear bad news is when the work is delayed beyond acceptable timelines or the issue is beyond the capacity of the team to handle, it’s too late

What makes an implementation project successful is the adoption of a proven methodology with a robust governance structure. The project should have bucketed stages that identify the tasks and people responsible. Your leadership team should have clear visibility on the progress of the work to identify potential bottlenecks and resolve issues before they become too big.

sa.global’s ACCelerate methodology ensures a clearly defined structure and activities mapped for every stage.

Having the right structure in place is just the first step. The implementation partner should be prepared for changes and aim for continuous improvement to incorporate any change. That is why sa.global has evolved sprint cycles to remain flexible to changes and respond to them efficiently.

While Dynamics AX continues to be a popular ERP solution, businesses are taking the next step and becoming future-ready with Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Does your Microsoft Partner offer add-on functionality?

How do you manage customizations for your Dynamics 365 implementation? Is it necessary to make all these adjustments inside the ERP? Is there a better way?
