Best practices for implementing Dynamics AX and JunctionFB for dairy
Many dairy companies continue to operate older or outdated information technology systems, with varying degrees of success. However, others have implemented Microsoft Dynamics® AX 2012 and JunctionFB, with the potential to enhance operational efficiency, ease margin pressures, manage complex pricing and unique dairy financial processes, facilitate regulatory compliance and promote a more responsive supply chain—both inbound and outbound. These capabilities can position forward-thinking companies for increased profitability and growth.
Dairy companies often take a measured approach when implementing a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or upgrading to a new release. Organizations typically fear the consequences of a costly or painful ERP implementation that is sometimes heard from peers or in the media. However, through an extensive track record of successful ERP implementations at dairy companies, RSM US LLP has developed a listing of implementation best practices and a road map to avoid common issues.
