Innovative Approach to ERP Reduces Application System Costs by $650K

Rex Moore

In an industry steeped in tradition, new ideas can give a business a tremendous advantage. Rex Moore, a large-scale electrical contractor, had begun to implement a market-changing idea, and the company’s success led the senior management team to reforecast their needs for the future. The team then saw another opportunity to break tradition—use a different ERP system that fits the needs of the new way Rex Moore wanted to do business. With the help of Sopris Systems, Rex Moore chose Microsoft Dynamics AX to accelerate their business toward the future.

“Microsoft Dynamics AX makes our organization run better and stronger. The work we’re doing here by deploying this system will have a big impact on our future success. Our kits are what really separate us from the competition, and Dynamics AX compliments rather than hinders that strategy by supporting all the preplanning and organization that goes into this methodology.”
