Essentials for Professional Services has been designed to help our customers overcome issues like revenue leakage, accurate and timely billing, and transparent, effective resource management.

Hitachi Solutions Europe, Ltd. today announces a powerful new cloudbased Microsoft Dynamics AX based ERP solution for mid and large scale professional services organisations. Essentials for Professional Services is an optimised, pre-configured application, based on best-practice industry templates.

This global solution is a complete, industry-specific ERP suite, delivered and supported with expert consultancy from the leading Microsoft Dynamics specialists – Hitachi Solutions Europe. Deployment time is reduced by at least 50 per cent compared with traditional ERP implementations, and customers benefit from reduced operational costs and improved total cost of ownership (TCO).

Essentials for Professional Services is available through the Microsoft Azure cloud platform on a peruser, monthly subscription basis. Customers avoid up-front costs, and new users and functions are added, and paid for as needed. Hitachi Solutions Europe provides the entire solution, including services and ongoing support, for a single monthly payment, delivering predictable ERP costs over the long term.

Essentials for Professional Services delivers powerful project and resource management, project accounting, time management, billing and invoicing, and expense management functionality. Users gain deep insight through pre-configured industry dashboards, KPIs and Power BI reports, to manage, assess and drive profitability. It can be used on the move, on any platform, by staff in the field or in the office, to optimise business productivity.

“We believe in a tailored, industry-specific approach to ERP. Essentials for Professional Services has been designed to help our customers overcome issues like revenue leakage, accurate and timely billing, and transparent, effective resource management. Essentials can be put in place quickly to start improving business decision making and we work alongside our customer’s organisation to tailor the solution, as one size doesn’t fit everyone,” said Steven French, Executive Vice President, Hitachi Solutions Europe.

Essentials for Professional Services is available from Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
