Sydney Microsoft partner Sable37 has deployed Dynamics 365 for food processing and packaging equipment manufacturer TNA Solutions, replacing its legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
TNA, which is based in Sydney, provides start-to-finish food processing and packaging solutions and employs 600 staff across 30 countries. Its offerings include materials handling, cooling and freezing, distribution, and end of line solutions.
“Overhauling our ERP system is a significant project for the business. It was equally critical to have the right platform and the right partner. We were not looking for a vendor to come in and replace a system but a company willing to partner with us on the journey to growing our business,” TNA chief information officer Pravin Singh said.
“Sable37 demonstrated their extensive experience with the platform and delivering value to businesses in our industry, and this assured us they were the right partner for us.”
The company said its decision to move to the cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics 365 was to provide a single, secure stable environment to help manage the end-to-end manufacturing process, helping executives make decisions.
A spokesperson for Sable37 told CRN that it replaced an old version of on-premises Microsoft Dynamic AX, deployed by a different reseller.
TNA will also integrate its existing customer engagement solution (CRM) with the new ERP in the future, enabling its sales team to coordinate with the rest of the business, capture leads and make offers to customers.
“We are excited about providing the business with critical information around cash flow, business processes, targets, all from a single system. Microsoft Dynamics 365 delivers all of this functionality out of the box and that’s going to be such a significant change for the business,” Singh said.
“The reporting capabilities of [Microsoft Dynamics 365’s] Power BI and the visibility that offers to our teams is unparalleled and it will propel our growth plans. For a global business like ours, a cloud-based software that transcends borders enables our staff to access one single source of truth, so they are no longer working in silos or reliant on manual processes.”
