Hitachi Solutions Europe has announced the launch of a new cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics AX based ERP solution for mid and large scale professional services organizations. The company’s ‘Essentials for Professional Services’ is an optimized, pre-configured application, based on best-practice industry templates.
This global solution is a complete, industry-specific ERP suite, delivered and supported with Microsoft Dynamics expert consultancy from Hitachi Solutions Europe. According to the company, employment time would be reduced by at least 50 per cent compared with traditional ERP implementations, and customers would benefit from reduced operational costs and improved total cost of ownership (TCO).
Hitachi Solutions Europe’s ‘Essentials for Professional Services’ is available through the Microsoft Azure cloud platform on a per-user, monthly subscription basis. Customers avoid up-front costs, and new users and functions are added, and paid for as needed. Hitachi Solutions Europe provides the entire solution, including services and ongoing support, for a single monthly payment, delivering predictable ERP costs over the long term.
Essentials for Professional Services delivers project and resource management, project accounting, time management, billing and invoicing, and expense management functionality. Users would gain deep insight through pre-configured industry dashboards, KPIs and Power BI reports, to manage, assess and drive profitability. It can be used on the move, on any platform, by staff in the field or in the office, to optimize business productivity.
“We believe in a tailored, industry-specific approach to ERP,” said Steven French, Executive Vice President, Hitachi Solutions Europe. “Essentials for Professional Services has been designed to help our customers overcome issues like revenue leakage, accurate and timely billing, and transparent, effective resource management. Essentials can be put in place quickly to start improving business decision making and we work alongside our customer’s organization to tailor the solution, as one size doesn’t fit everyone.”
