Dell services has released its Microsoft Dynamics for manufacturing solution to help companies increase efficiency, lower costs, reduce IT footprints and decrease downtime, according to a Dell statement.
“We’ve been a Microsoft Dynamics software provider for some time, but today we’re announcing the addition of a full service and consulting component to our offerings based on our internal, hands-on experience with the solution,” said Mike Gauthier, Dell services’ Microsoft Dynamics AX practice manager.
Dell said the solution helped its manufacturing eliminate the need for almost 2,000 servers and 70 applications and saw an estimated 75 percent reduction in factory IT footprint.
“With Microsoft Dynamics AX, we could roll out one factory at a time, and didn’t have to worry about changes to our core financial and HR and server management and all of the other upstream systems that we didn’t want to touch,” said Matt Griffiths, IT executive director of Dell manufacturing systems.
The company is adding Microsoft Dynamics services and support to its re-seller offerings for manufacturers.
“After applying Microsoft Dynamics AX to our own manufacturing process, and realizing how impactful the solution can be, we knew we had an opportunity to help our manufacturing customers experience the same benefits,” Gauthier said.
Microsoft Dynamics AX offers the following services:
· Multiple software licensing options for Microsoft Dynamics
· Deployment options including on-premise and cloud based solutions
· Infrastructure assessment, design and support services
· Business process re-engineering and organizational change management
· Application configuration and implementation
· Custom application development
· Managed services and ongoing support
According to Dell, the solution works to provide manufacturers complete visibility into their global supply chains, help optimize business systems based on changing demands and increase the efficiency and simplicity of the entire manufacturing process.
