Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd., a leading provider of global industry solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM and the US Reseller Partner of the Year, today announced BUILD//AX, a new add-on solution designed to maximize the benefits of Microsoft Dynamics AX for the construction and engineering industry.

As a component of the company’s new Enterprise Productivity Suite, the new BUILD //AX solution is an end-to-end package of capabilities that streamlines systems and processes; provides business visibility and insight; and supports business promotion, job execution, field operation, and workforce management. Other benefits include tighter control of resources and improved accounting, reporting, and compliance.

BUILD //AX manages the entire lifecycle of complex construction and service jobs effectively and productively – from pre-construction through closing. Built on a Microsoft Dynamics AX technology platform, BUILD //AX provides an integrated, centralized system that enhances the construction and engineering value chain and allows quick and efficient reactions to the ever-changing construction industry.

“The construction market is dynamic and businesses face challenges such increased competition, lower price demands, growth through acquisition, and dwindling customer loyalty. Hitachi Solutions addresses these issues with BUILD //AX and helps clients take back control and better manage their entire construction and engineering lifecycle,” said Salim Faroukh, Senior Director-Industry Strategy, Hitachi Solutions America, Business Solution Group.

BUILD //AX offers Microsoft Dynamics clients:

  •     Lifecycle management of a construction project in one fully integrated system
  •     Real time job costs including labor, equipment, material, subcontract and others
  •     Job site mobility
  •     Optimal scheduling of labor, equipment, and other resources on projects
  •     Safety tracking
  •     Accurate and flexible billing options and formats
  •     Interactive reporting and business intelligence to track health and profitability of projects
