Extending ERP to Project-Driven Companies™

The world is shrinking, and your competitors are no longer just in the next town. They’re also continents away and they are aggressively going after your business here at home. To win in a global economy, it is not enough to build a great product. You must also do so cost effectively and still make a profit. This is survival of the fittest, and for your business to grow, you have to be the best of the best.

Problem is, your information systems have not kept pace. With several projects underway at once, it has become much harder to track your progress, recognize when delivery risk is no longer manageable, or spot future cost trends that threaten your profitability. Poorly managed resources and budgets can turn what appeared to be profitable projects into a string of unfulfilled client expectations, cost overruns, and cancelled contracts.

Advanced Projects® for PME will help you with:

  • Standardized framework to unify project driven business operations
  • Enhanced visibility into global operations for more consistent results
  • Optimize manpower and equipment and increase utilization
  • Facilitate collaboration across organizations and with vendors and suppliers
  • Create consistency in your project quoting processes
  • Accurately predict budget variance and financial performance of your complete project portfolio

Why choose Advanced Projects® for PME?

Most commercial project solutions live outside of the central ERP system and offer only minimal integration, a competitive disadvantage to any project-driven company. Business success is heavily dependent upon clear visibility into delivery operations, and that lack of real-time integration can mean the difference between business success and crushing failure. Advanced Projects® for PME is natively embedded within Dynamics AX with zero-latency integration from budgets to actual costs to inventories to bid rates. Executives that need real-time insight into global operations require the most modern and integrated operations management platform on the market. We call this integrated approach Enterprise Project ERP™.
