Dynamics NAV vs AX – It’s all about the add-on’s required

With complex business requirements in Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) or Manufacturing, it’s absolutely critical to understand the true differences between two of the best ERP solutions, Dynamics NAV and AX.  Understanding the nuances between the two ERP systems will help your business better see ROI and tangible workable benefits of ERP.

The Most Critical Step In ERP Implementation

October 21, 2015 / 0 Comments / in ERP Implementation / by Mike Miller



As CFO, part of your job includes evaluating and advising on the impact of long range planning, along with introduction of new programs and strategies to ensure credibility of the Finance group by providing: timely and accurate analysis of budgets, financial trends, and forecasts. One of the best ways to ensure credibility of budgets, financial trends, and forecasts is to implement an ERP system.

When you're choosing an ERP solution, it's also important to consider the solution provider in order to ensure a successful ERP implementation. By working closely with an experienced ERP vendor, you’ll have all the support you need during and after system implementation. When unexpected errors occur or misunderstandings arise, having an expert by your side is critical. Stability, market presence in region, past successes, expertise, adaptability, and innovation are important considerations to ponder when selecting your vendor.


Their Dynamics AX implementation quote is twice that of Clients First!

Why is your competitiors quote so much higher? Is Clients First missing something in the quote? Are they not as competent?  With these questions becoming critical points of concern with a prospect we’ve been pursuing for some time. 

With over 15 years of successfully implementing Microsoft’s Dynamics AX (formerly Axapta), we’ve seen the product misaligned by the competitors and even other Dynamics partners.  We have also seen it develop from its inception in 1998 to a full featured enterprise ERP solution and with the AX 7 release later this year it is written in the latest technology, HTML 5.  This is an exciting product to sell and support! 

While we see AX as Microsoft’s leading ERP solution, along with being the most technologically advanced and feature rich of all the Dynamics offerings, it’s also surprisingly scalable and affordable. We have successfully placed AX with a small manufacturer with sales of three million in annual revenue, and also for one of the world’s largest turbine repair enterprises with a global presence.  So where does all the confusion come from?


Dynamics AX is more scalable than you’re being told

AX & Clients First Can Configure Your Smaller Manufacturing Plant for Growth

For everyone out there who has been told Dynamics AX is too: big, expensive, and complex -think again! Clients First successfully placed AX with a manufacturer doing less than three million in annual revenue.  While the company was small, their system requirements were that of a considerably much larger business.  This company’s selection and successful implementation of Dynamics AX is a perfect example of both the affordability and scalability of the ERP solution.


Microsoft’s Dynamics AX is a lot more affordable than you’re being told

A lot more affordable…

Clients First has been selling and successfully implementing Dynamics AX (previously known as Damgaard Axapta) for over 16 years now.   Our customer base that we have implemented and continue to support have revenues that range from 10M up to 3B with employee counts from 30 to 15K.  These are smart companies that understand the value of this solution and Clients First as an implementation partner.  Microsoft added the solution to their ERP product line in 2001 and has since invested a great deal of time, money and effort in the product improvement over the years.
