Microsoft Dynamics AX

Re-implementing was easier than an upgrade

Upgraded/Reimplemented Dynamics AX2012 R3 from an earlier version. We did not use the Microsoft upgrade scripts for code or data, so it was more of a reimplementation than a true upgrade. We tried to go with standard functionanlity as much as possible. Existing customizations were reviewed and re-implmented against AX2012 R3 codebase if deemed necessary. Some integrations were upgradable but others had to be redone.

Successful ERP Project

The ERP implementation was a greenfield effort so complexity was reduced simply because we were not replacing any significant legacy applications. The primary driver for us was scalability and transaction throughput for our light manufacturing and order operations processes. We completed the implementation in 9 months (ran over by 3 months).

Benificial to small/medium sized business (SMBs)

Pertinent to my role, this software was to assist the financials of the company for all departments - company wide. This software helps compartmentalize numbers that assist in making macro-level decisions (KPIs). Not to mention, the software is highly customizeable and very user-friendly. I cannot speak on behalf of implementation, but from the marketing arena of our business model, NAV is a headquartered solution for the vast majority of our monetary decision-making. In my opinion, this software would ONLY be benificial to small/medium sized business (SMBs).

Microsoft Dynamics GP

Initial implementation was easy, integration of transactions is ongoing effort

GP works well out of the box and provices a service for integration of most transactions. Needed to use a third party tool (SmartConnect) to make the integrations easier to manage.

AX ERP Implementations are difficult when it is highly customized

It was a very difficult process implementating AX ERP.

Full Featured product with manageable customization process; 3rd party support is tough

3rd party support was terrible; drove extended implementation and cost.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Vendor industry knowledge is great. They are a small company and lots of mods required.

The NAV implementation is proving better managed than our cloud based software (Infor SXE) which we are currenty implementing on the other side of our business. Our NAV reseller is knowledgable but not large enough to handle our future needs.

Microsoft Dynamics GP

Upgrade went well, but be aware of potential issues.

The experience went well through the guidance of a Microsoft Partner. We established a baseline of success and an acceptable risk factor. We did run into a couple snags while upgrading the back-end SQL database versions. This was done prior to upgrading the application. We did have to rely on backup files to get through this process.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV

NAV Helps Us Run Our Business Better

It was a pain in the a** but we got through it.

Microsoft Dynamics GP

Great for Finance, May Need Additional Supplementation

GP is a solid financial ledger, but lacks native functionality for many of our most important business processes. Because of this, we have needed to integrate this system with numerous other tools, which has added a lot of complexity to managing our environment.
