Replacing ERP system is expected to result in reduced expenses while improving sales, supply chain and financial management.

 

REDMOND, Wash. — Oct. 9, 2006 — Microsoft Corp. today announced that Network Equipment Technologies Inc., or NET, (NYSE:NWK), a global provider of multiservice network exchange solutions for government and enterprise clients, has chosen Microsoft Dynamics™ AX to more effectively manage the company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) activities.

NET, which has approximately 250 employees and 30 offices worldwide, selected Microsoft’s business management solution to streamline its sales transactions and financial systems as well as improve processes with its supply chain and contract manufacturing facilities. NET expects the new implementation will also result in significant cost savings related to system maintenance and ongoing enhancements. The company intends to implement the new ERP system at the start of its new fiscal year, which begins April 2007.

“The decision to move away from Oracle ERP software to Microsoft Dynamics AX was a straightforward business decision for NET,” said Talbot Harty, chief information officer and general manager of Voice and Mobility Solutions at NET. “For us, the product cost was less than the cost of one year’s maintenance for our current system. In addition, it’s easier to configure, it’s familiar to our people, and it’s nimble enough to adapt to the changing needs of our company.”
