Mining Technologies International Inc. embarks on a new partnership with AX-iom ERP Inc. and Microsoft Dynamics AX Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software Solution.
MISSISSAUGA – AX-iom ERP Inc., a leading Canadian ERP reseller and Microsoft Dynamics AX partner, announced today that Mining Technologies International Inc. (MTI) has selected Microsoft Dynamics AX as its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. Located in Sudbury, the heart of the Ontario, Canada mining community, MTI is a manufacturer committed to supplier partnerships that deliver innovation. Its purchase of Microsoft Dynamics AX, a leading edge ERP software technology, demonstrates MTI’s dedication to operational excellence and improvement through innovation.
MTI operates four manufacturing facilities producing a wide range of mining equipment and high quality drill string components. Known in the mining community as a ‘one-stop solution provider’, MTI had to find an ERP solution that could not only easily scale to meet its rapid growth, but also effectively handle a multi-company environment. The strength of these two major influencers alone placed Microsoft Dynamics AX ahead of the competition. In addition, MTI required an ERP solution with strong manufacturing capability that would allow them to:
- Streamline their supply chain operations to get equipment, products, and repair parts to the customer without compromising time, quality or price,
- Gain operational visibility across their entire organization to enable confident decision making,
- Manage mixed-mode manufacturing with integrated production and materials resource planning.
These capabilities and the familiar look and feel of a Microsoft solution were the final factors in their selection of Microsoft Dynamics AX. Tim Smith, Corporate Controller at MTI adds, “AX-iom proved to us that Microsoft Dynamics AX was a superior solution and equally important, they took the time to properly understand our needs and build relationships with our people. We are confident that AX-iom has the right people to make our ERP implementation a success.”
AX-iom ERP Inc. will be delivering the software implementation to MTI using its comprehensive team of financial, manufacturing and technical specialists. AX-iom provides ERP implementation services to discrete manufacturing organizations, focusing on best practices that add value through process improvement. Brian Freeman, Project Manager for the MTI project noted, “MTI is a great organization to be partnered with. We can see the benefits that AX-iom and Microsoft Dynamics AX can offer, and we are excited to take them to the next level in terms of their corporate growth and development strategy.“
