Dynamics AX Support partner: 6-point checklist before choosing the right one

Visit Website View Our Posts

Microsoft Dynamics AX has been a trusted ERP for organizations worldwide. With its numerous features like financial management, employee management, supply chain monitoring, sales and marketing, and project management, Dynamics AX has been the market’s favorite for over two decades.  

Choosing the right ERP software that fits your business is essential. Equally important is the right implementation partner for a competent, successful, and steady implementation process. Remember that it is a huge investment; you would not want unforeseen roadblocks. A certified and experienced Dynamics AX support expert will understand your business goals and help you build customized ERP software according to your unique requirements. 

Here is a seven-point checklist to help you pick the right (and best) AX support partner: 

1. TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE: Are they equipped with a technically sound team of experts? An experienced and expert Dynamics partner should know Dynamics AX thoroughly— its capabilities, user interface, and customization options. Top partners will demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of these coupled with deep experience.  

2. INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE: Do they have multiple years of domain experience? Your partner needs to align with your goals and have a sound understanding of your business needs. They must be able to identify challenges—even ones you may have overlooked—to avoid problems specific to your industry. 

3. THE PARTNERS’ TEAM: Do they have good work ethics? Ensure that you and your partner are on the same page regarding your work values before establishing a partnership. In addition, look at their range of services and how they align with your goals. 

4. TRACK RECORD: How wide is their customer base? Choosing an implementation partner who has worked with clients from across the globe and has completed projects across several industries is better. 

5. ONGOING SUPPORT: Will they be around when in need? Technical issues such as upgrades, bug-fixing, and user training are bound to occur after a Dynamics AX implementation. Choose a partner who commits long-term to guide you before, during, and after an ERP implementation with dedicated support. 

6. SCALABILITY: Future-proof ERP software? Choose a partner capable of scaling your operational system, predict possible challenges and hurdles that might hinder your growth, and implement Dynamics AX that will be efficient over time. 

Dynamics AX users enjoy numerous benefits, yet, there are drawbacks as it has become a legacy product with outdated features. Microsoft has dropped support for Dynamics AX since 2018 and rebranded it to Dynamics 365 Finance (formerly named Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations). Though  Dynamics AX achieves sales, procurement, production, and business-oriented tasks, the ability to remain agile and responsive to market demands is prone to diminish quickly. Meanwhile, Dynamics 365 Finance brings many more benefits with new features and capabilities and is the recommended path forward.
