Top 7 Reasons to Buy Dynamics AX

Top 7 Reasons to Buy Dynamics AX from Rand Group

Congratulations! You have finally made it to the end of your software selection process and have chosen to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX.

It wasn’t an easy decision. You took the time and spent the energy to fully research, plan, and evaluate several competing business management solutions, trying to figure out which solution would be the best fit for your needs. After months and months of deliberating and demos, you made the decision to go with Dynamics AX because it is a global enterprise-class ERP solution with a large functional footprint that supports complex integrations.

So, where do you go from here?

Alas, the software selection process is really only the first mountain of many you have left to climb. The next mountain you need to consider is implementation. How you are going to successfully install and adopt the solution you have chosen? There are a lot of factors that contribute to your success but it all starts with the right partner.

Why is Having the Right Partner Important?

We have all heard the ERP implementation horror stories. The ones where the client ends up over budget, out of scope, and no further ahead than they were before. Gartner estimates that between 55% to 75% of all ERP projects fall in that category, failing to meet expectations and deliver a real return on investment.

The main reason why ERP implementation projects fail is because of partner incompatibility. When you choose a partner to implement and support your ERP solution, you are essentially handing the keys to your business over to them. Some companies (and some partners for that matter) think that a partner is only there to setup your system, provide the proper documentation and then move on. And that way of thinking is what leads to those high failure rates.

As the solution architect, your partner is responsible for everything from project planning and deployment to employee adoption and support. There are thousands of partners to choose from in the Dynamics ecosystem alone so your decision should start with a similar analysis as your software selection process. Instead of thinking about what functionality you need, think about what you need a partner to provide and how they will fit in with your company. How big is your IT team? Do you have specific industry requirements? Do you want to work with a local team?

Why Choose Rand Group as Your Implementation Partner?

It may start at the software selection stage or at implementation but either way, the relationship you have with your partner never really ends.
