Columbus IT France, Netherlands & Norway Now Live on Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0!
This pilot implementation project is part of the Technology Adoption Program (TAP), and Columbus IT is among only 9 other customers in the world taking part in this program. The goal for Microsoft was to get customers live on the application before it is launched to the market, and the main goal for Columbus IT to participate in the TAP program was to become the first partner in the world with the greatest knowledge about Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 and to support their closest relationships with Microsoft. Implementation in these countries was started less than 7 weeks ago, and covers the following modules: General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Account Receivables and Project. The application is very close to the standard implementation with minor adjustments not exceeding 100 hours. All countries are running on one hosted solution running on TDC hosting servers, and more countries will be included in the roll-out pipeline. Spain and Germany plan to go live in July and more countries will continue with further implementations beyond. The final goal is to have all countries in the group running on the new Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 application.
