Ignify customer ESI Enterprises’ use of Microsoft Dynamics AX has been cited as an important financial software success story in the Technology Evaluation Center’s (TEC) Financial Software Packages for Medium and Large Enterprises Buyer's Guide.
“Microsoft Dynamics AX gives us the tools we need to provide any information needed by the customer in a timely way,” said Gary Godman, VP, Information Technology and Services of ESI Enterprises, in the case study.
A major distributor and contract manufacturer serving North America, Canada, and Mexico, ESI Enterprises works closely with customers to provide consumer durable products at low prices, with an emphasis placed on offering branded consumer electronics, appliances, housewares, sporting goods, toys, and other general merchandise. The company actively seeks opportunities to purchase a variety of consumer products from a variety of sources, and using a skilled team of buyers with global connections, ESI Enterprises frequently seeks out specific products desired by clients.
Previously using an outdated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that could not adequately support the company’s technological or business growth, ESI Enterprises experienced disconnected manual systems that created processing inefficiencies and a lack of data insight. After evaluating multiple software systems, ESI Enterprises found that Microsoft Dynamics AX’s platform flexibility would provide a solid, adaptable foundation for growing with the company’s business development.
By creating a system that made inventory management, warehouse and delivery information, and financial data transparent and instantly accessible by system users, ESI Enterprises benefits from greater visibility of crucial business processes and the ability to strategize more effectively.
In regards to the company’s financial processes, the financial analysis and reporting capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX allows ESI Enterprises’ team to gain a consolidated overview of data that allows them to more effectively evaluate the financial health of the organization. With analysis services, reporting services, key performance indicators (KPIs), Management Reporter, Excel, and the system’s seamless integration with many third-party tools, the quality of analysis that the ESI Enterprises finance department delivers has improved with increased visibility and greater data access.
“With Microsoft Dynamics AX, distributors gain a comprehensive, scalable solution that provides real-time connectivity across the company, as well as the tools for sustaining and growing business in different channels,” said Sandeep Walia, CEO of Ignify.
