Several weeks ago we wrote about the Ferranti-Microsoft Global Collaboration for Utilities. Last week our partners Avanade and Ferranti announced their partnership to deliver innovative enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, based on the Microsoft platform, to help Utility companies around the world cut the cost to serve and improve overall customer service.

The AX 2012 difference is an ERP solution that empowers people to anticipate and embrace change with agilclip_image001ity made possible by a unified business process repository, model-driven architecture, and simplicity that comes from a familiar user experience and built-in collaboration tools. This makes for a better fit for the needs of the business, more value and a solution that users will love!

Of course, having a great solution is one thing but having capacity and scale to deliver globally is what customers need and this is precisely what the Avanade/Ferranti partnership will deliver. You can read the press release and listen to Avanade and Ferranti discuss their partnership in a video here.

We believe that with Ferranti‘s deep domain expertise together with Avanade‘s global reach and Cloud services will be a game changer for Utilities. - Jon C. Arnold.
