Waltham, MA (PRWEB) August 20, 2008
Crossroads Partner, Inc. announces it has entered into an agreement with Rodman Construction, Inc. to establish an Equipment Management and Construction enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution based on Microsoft Dynamics AX.
"This agreement further strengthens our commitment to the Construction and Heavy Equipment sector and extends our growth into the southwest region of the U.S.," said Einar Ulfsson, Chairman and Co-Founder of Crossroads Partner. "Having a Construction Industry leader, like Rodman, choose our vertical solution over the competition is a fantastic payoff for all the hard work invested in creating this world class solution. Rodman senior executives have significant experience with other ERP solutions and were committed to finding the right partner. For that reason, we are extremely proud Rodman chose Crossroads."
The Rodman project is focused on defining and updating standard business processes to support the implementation of a world class ERP system to manage operations from end to end due to continued growth. To do this, Rodman chose Crossroads Partner to implement Dynamics AX 2009 and the Annata IDMS heavy equipment management tool.
As part of the business process update, Crossroads will develop specific construction functionality called Crossroads Partner Construction (CPC) for AX, which consists of Fleet Management, Construction AIA Billing, Microsoft Project Server, Microsoft Performance Point Business Intelligence and Microsoft Mobile Handheld system with GPS location. Rodman will integrate Microsoft SharePoint into the Dynamics AX solution providing user collaboration for 2000 Rodman users.
Central to Rodman's selection of Crossroads Partner was their expertise with Annata IDMS. The Heavy Equipment Management capability of Annata IDMS, developed exclusively for the Heavy Equipment and Automotive industry, is certified by Microsoft, and provides deep equipment management, warranty and service capabilities which are necessary to control equipment costs.
Craig Porter, Chairman, Rodman LLC, said, "When Crossroads sent us the solution certification, we knew we had chosen the right solution; IDMS."
