Project management integrated with Dynamics AX
Scandinavian based Axdata is specialised in delivering the Microsoft produced ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics AX, document management solutions, SharePoint and Business Intelligence. Axdata will now be integrating Microsoft Dynamics AX with WorkPoint 365, affording their customers to make use of Office 365 and SharePoint via Microsoft Dynamics AX as a natural part of the business process.
“A lot of companies have bought Office 365 without taking the full advantage of SharePoint as it relates to project management. We believe it is very attractive to our customers to receive turn-key solutions such as WorkPoint 365, integrated with Dynamics AX,” says Trond Johansson, CEO, Axdata.
New opportunity for ERP customers
Axdata’s specialty is businesses in the production, engineering, and service industries, who have a large documentation load and challenges with managing information. In this setting, WorkPoint 365 and the on-premise version of WorkPoint is a great tool for structuring information, documents, and processes atop SharePoint, Axdata believes, and points to the challenges of businesses with SharePoint development.
“The challenge with SharePoint is that it is an empty frame, requiring extensive knowledge about the tool itself, and how it works, before even beginning. If your start is not perfect, it can be costly and challenging to add new functionality to a SharePoint site, or quickly and easily update all existing libraries and sites with the same functionality, ” Trond Johansson explains.
In this scenario, WorkPoint as a standard solution plays an important role:
”WorkPoint has great potential, because it allows the company access to a set of industry-adapted standard modules, which from the very beginning covers about 80 percent of all the needs for quality assurance, contacts management with document and email management, as well as management of workflows and processes , all at once, as opposed to developing solutions from the ground up. As a consequence, our customers will already be off to a very good start and we only have to adapt that last 20 percent.”
International customer portfolio
Founded in 1997, Axdata today employs 50 people in Norway, Denmark, and Australia with a customer portfolio in Scandinavia, Europe, USA, Canada, South America, and Asia.
Axdata became the Norwegian Microsoft Dynamics partner in 2011, and also belongs to the Microsoft Presidents Club, representing the top five percent of Microsoft Partners on a global scale.
