Resellers should closely examine the potential of Microsoft Dynamics, with a new version set to be launched here next year, to catalyse business process change and reduce data volume, says Sandie Overtveld, Dynamics ERP’s Asia Pacific partner director.
Overtveld, speaking at a two-day Intergen Dynamics Day in Wellington earlier this month, gave partners an update on the product roadmap for Dynamics AX, NAV and CRM.
He adds partners have an opportunity to promote Dynamics when consulting on Windows 7 upgrades.
“Partners looking to upgrade customers to Windows 7 can market Dynamics as well. It already integrates with the operating system.”
From next year, the software will include a refreshed interface to increase usability and integration with Microsoft Office version 14, says Overtveld.
He adds a new version of Dynamics AX is due locally within the next 12 months.
Intergen Dynamics practice principal Simon Bright says his company has already signed customers for AX 2009, including Ports of Auckland, and says it has commenced a project for Les Mills International.
Bright was pleased with the turnout for the Dynamics Day event, with 100 people attending.
“Intergen is committed to supporting the Dynamics product range. This is one of a number of activities we have planned for customers to get the most out of these solutions.”
One of these activities is passing on the knowledge from AX-Pact, a global website designed to help deliver AX projects. In September, the company became the sole local member of AX-Pact as it selects just one partner from each country.
“The AX-Pact partnership gives us access to the best delivery teams, available to execute multinational implementations of Dynamics AX. We were selected not because we were the largest provider, but because we have demonstrated success in a short time with AX and have existing relationships with some of the European partners,” says Bright.
AX-Pact selects just one partner from each country.
