Business SituationIn 2006, Monaco Telecom engaged in an extensive corporate reorganization. Its objective was to improve performance levels and broaden its line of products and offerings. It made substantial investments to improve its services in 2007, and will continue doing so in 2008 and beyond. As part of these reorganization efforts, the company decided to replace an aging legacy finance tool with an integrated ERP system that would be flexible, easy to use and easily scalable.
SolutionMonaco Telecom chose Microsoft Dynamics AX with the help of Avanade. It was seen as the best value proposition considering the various requirements involved. Included in the solution were Retail Pro, to manage sales in the company's retail outlets, and ReQ Logic, to manage the purchasing approval cycle on the corporate Intranet.
The company initiated the project in mid-November 2006, and conducted a rollout August 2007. "Avanade and Dynamics AX turned out to be the perfect mix, to make the implementation a success,” according to Jean-Philippe Grison, Program Manager. “Avanade has been very skilled at designing a detailed implementation plan. The Avanade team showed strong commitment and dedication throughout the project and, most notably, during the rollout phase. Also, Avanade showed a deep finance knowledge, which proved to be a strong asset.
ResultsWith Dynamics AX, Monaco Telecom can grow its business successfully in a highly competitive international telco marketplace. It’s backed by a robust, efficient and flexible ERP system that will scale up with the company. "Microsoft Dynamics AX has enabled us to put in place the foundation of an integrated finance function that will support us through future evolutions of the company,” concludes Frederic Pinchaud, Finance Director at Monaco Telecom. In addition the company has realized these benefits.
