US Lighting Tech ( has chosen Olive-3 Technologies to bring the power and efficiency of Microsoft Dynamics AX to its business and IT systems by taking advantage of Olive-3’s domain expertise in Hi-Tech manufacturing. The new technology and process infrastructure will handle key business processes, including procurement, customer relationship management, supply chain management, inventory management and order-to-cash cycle.

Based in Irvine, Calif., US Lighting Tech (USLT) provides a full line of induction lighting products to meet their customers’ needs in manufacturing, infrastructure, utilities, tunnels bridges, medical and military application areas. The complexity of the company’s supply chain – which includes engineering, sales and final assembly operations in the US, and a vast network of suppliers across the globe – requires standardized and tightly integrated sales, manufacturing and financial processes, and a flexible technology infrastructure. Additionally, USLT aims to improve the speed of transaction processing and respond quickly to new opportunities by integrating financial and planning processes on a daily basis.

“What we needed was more than just an accounting system and a software reseller,” said Won Yang, COO of US Lighting Tech. “We were looking for a partner that understands the manufacturing and supply chain challenges of our business and that can offer a solution to overcome these challenges without breaking the bank. Olive-3 delivered a great road-map to implement best-in-class technology and processes in multiple phases, so we transition into this new infrastructure without interrupting our current business. They have also demonstrated their deep domain expertise in manufacturing and the flexibility of Microsoft Dynamics AX during a pilot deployment phase. This gave us a lot of confidence to move forward with the road-map that will support our fast growth and future success.”
