Every organization that embarks on an implementation of a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, does so with trepidation and fear of failure. The project takes time, requires focus and is sometimes disruptive to daily operations. In a recent presentation at Convergence, Microsoft’s annual Dynamics community conference, 3 CFO’s talked about their experience selecting and implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX.
Each of the presenters discussed their journey and cited common business improvements from a fully integrated system like quicker revenue recognition, improved confidence in inventory balances and improved reporting capability.
These CFO’s compared their experiences and all agreed to 5 specific points that contribute to the ongoing success of Dynamics AX in their organizations:
Keys to their success
- They found a partner organization that they trusted
- They had a strong Project Manager who is focused on results
Dynamics AX vs other ERP solutions
- Dynamics AX delivers one version of the truth
- Dynamics AX corrected all prior errors of SAP and Oracle implementations
- Functionality gaps are filled by solutions developed by Dynamics ISVs
As a professional services firm with 20+ years of experience specializing in Dynamics ERP and CRM implementations we couldn’t agree more with what these people stated was the single most important contributor to their project success – having a passion for the solution!
So when your organization is ready to start down the road of a new ERP implementation, make sure key resources have the passion required to see the project through. Have the right people in place who believe in the vision and you are more likely to succeed.
