Pre-sales and implementation time is something that is of great concern not only to partners but to the Dynamics AX Partner Productivity team, part of the development group in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

To take advantage of the increasing license sales that have accompanied the new release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 partners will need to either hire more Microsoft Dynamics AX consultants …or reduce implementation time. The Microsoft Dynamics AX Partner Productivity team has a charter to reduce the time partners spend on implementations and wish to offer assistance.

Would you like:

  • more support during pre-sales, diagnostic and analysis activities
  • better developer content, end-user instructions, and pre-configured data
  • tools to capture best practices to on-board new employees faster and reduce risk during implementation
  • to spend a larger percentage of your time providing customers value-added services that allow you to differentiate yourself from your competitors
  • reduce time on inefficient tasks during implementation and charge your customers in full for your efforts 

If you are a partner and have answered YES to any of these questions, please connect with the Microsoft Dynamics AX Partner Productivity team by emailing us at daxppext@microsoft.com. The team has prepared a short survey requiring partner input to understand how your time is spent. The Microsoft Dynamics AX Partner Productivity team will use the survey results to develop tools and content to ease major pain points resulting in shorter implementation cycles.

The, soon-to-be-released Microsoft Dynamics Implementation Model and the just released Rapid Configuration Tool for Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 are examples of tools we are working on.

The Microsoft Dynamics AX Partner Productivity team would like to engage with as many partners as possible, so please Help us help you!
