Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd., a leading provider of global industry solutions based on Microsoft Dynamics AX and 2014 Microsoft Dynamics Global Partner of the Year, today announced the launch of EQUIP//AX, an equipment production and management solution for manufacturing firms using Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Powered by Microsoft Dynamics AX, EQUIP//AX, Hitachi Solutions’ equipment management solution for manufacturing delivers the key functionality needed to easily and efficiently manage equipment throughout the entire process.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this solution to our existing and potential clients. Heavy equipment manufacturing organizations using or looking to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX will have the equipment tracking they require with this added module,” said Hal Howard, chief technology advisor, Hitachi Solutions America.

EQUIP//AX allows organizations to gain visibility into the total return on investment of the equipment during its lifespan. Beginning with the manufacturing information gathered through the production process and continuing through sale, rental and retirement, organizations can manage equipment from purchase to decommission. During the equipment’s life, organizations can track cost and revenue related to warranties, extended warranties, and service performed. This total visibility enables one to determine if rework or preventative maintenance can be made that will increase the value of the equipment.

“This solution will enable us to better serve our customers in the industrial equipment industry, which is a key area of focus for us,” said Salim Faroukh, vice president industry solutions, Hitachi Solutions America. “We are looking forward to working with our clients to help them realize the benefits of this innovative solution.”

Hitachi Solutions EQUIP//AX solution provides a fully integrated business application that covers:

  •     Equipment registration
  •     Associating equipment to inventory item, asset, service, object, etc.
  •     Equipment release and quality check process
  •     Building component structure and version control for equipment
