Microsoft Dynamics AX Overview

Microsoft Dynamics AX software is the most prestigious choice from the Microsoft inventory of end-to-end business systems. It is a truly modern, fully integrated, adaptable, three dimensional business management system which uses modern technologies to help you and your staff make confident and informed business decisions. Dynamics AX hosting can take place in the cloud, or on premise - you can decide.

It incorporates key functionality to visualise your entire operation from sales order entry and configurations, through to the invoicing of goods dispatched. The Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) Software will automate critical business processes, automatically record Bill Of Materials (BOM), improve upon operational efficiency, streamline procedures and eliminate manual data re-entry and error meaning your time and resources are not wasted.

Connect all of your sites and encourage supply chain collaboration through a ‘single instance’ of Microsoft Dynamics AX allowing for independent operation but with ‘group’ level analysis. When production is conducted within many sites, Microsoft Dynamics AX lets you manage production and workflow across the entire enterprise with its impressive Production Planning Software features. 

MS Dynamics AX from Syscom unifies the manufacturing process into one multi-site operation and provides high quality business intelligence.   

Microsoft Dynamics AX is one of a limited number of truly global systems that provides multi-site, multi-lingual, multi-currency capabilities for more than 40 countries including software tools to local tax and regulatory requirements with a full suite of financial tools and ledger management.

Additionally, the object-oriented architecture of Microsoft Dynamics AX is different than many of its competitors because it can scale up to support large distribution businesses, and scale down to support the specific needs of smaller companies. This means that you can adapt and upgrade your ERP system over time with less risk and expense. 

However, when applied specifically to how an industry operates or the circumstances in which they work, there will always be nuances and specific functions that are not standard. Syscom, having recruited all of its staff from the industries we supply, has taken this impressive product and specifically adapted it with the functionality of software already used within the industries kept in mind.
