Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
Hitachi Consulting, a leading provider of IT consulting and management consulting solutions and services, today announced its client Tesco Corporation (TESCO), a global leader in the design, manufacture, and service of technology-based solutions for the upstream energy industry, was named 2012 Microsoft Dynamics Customer Excellence Award winner in the Global Business Excellence category. TESCO was recognized for its measurable success and business efficiency across multiple countries, currencies, languages, and business processes using Microsoft Dynamics®. TESCO will be honored by Microsoft executives at a special awards luncheon during the annual Convergence 2012 conference on March 20 in Houston.
To continue to be a major player in the energy industry, TESCO had to be able to respond quickly to market demands, take advantage of global opportunities, and meet the needs of its international clients. When TESCO expanded to Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, its legacy ERP system could not keep up with the growing global requirements. The company needed a single, integrated system with multi-site capabilities and global scalability as it further expanded into new markets.
In Microsoft Dynamics AX, TESCO found the innovative technology to fully consolidate and support its global business strategy. Microsoft Dynamics AX allows TESCO to standardize and streamline operations and have a single point of contact to manage and access the critical data that runs the company. Additional benefits of using Microsoft Dynamics AX, in combination with field service automation from Hitachi Consulting, include:
- Cut software and implementation costs by 50%
- Improved global inventory visibility
- Lowered total cost of ownership to support TESCO’s manufacturing and service growth, domestically and internationally
- Increased revenue growth with better visibility into planning and utilization of tools, assets, and inventory
- Reduced administration and training costs with easy to use interface and end user reporting tools
“We are honored to receive this Customer Excellence award from Microsoft,” said Scott Turner, general manager of IT at TESCO. “It validates the hard work we have done with Microsoft Dynamics AX and Hitachi Consulting to continue to transform our business operations and become a true global leader in our field.”
“Congratulations to TESCO on their Customer Excellence win. It’s exciting to see them recognized for their innovation and strong commitment to Microsoft Dynamics,” said Mike Gillis, senior vice president of Hitachi Consulting’s Microsoft Global Alliance. “We are also proud to have played a part in helping them plan and deploy their award-winning solution, and help them achieve their global business goals.”
Established in 1997, the Customer Excellence Awards are presented in nine categories and are designed to recognize and celebrate Microsoft Dynamics customers who have achieved notable accomplishments using their Microsoft Dynamics solutions.
Microsoft Dynamics is a line of financial, customer relationship, and supply chain management solutions that help businesses work more effectively. A Microsoft Gold Partner and multiple Microsoft Partner of the Year winner, Hitachi Consulting specializes in the implementation, customization and support of all Microsoft Dynamics solutions.
Hitachi Consulting will be showcasing its Microsoft Dynamics successes and solutions in booth #1853 during the Microsoft Convergence 2012 show March 18-21 in Houston.
