Case Study

Cloud-Powered Clean Energy Generation with Dynamics 365

A Microsoft Dynamics 365 Success Story for Energy Companies

Microsoft Dynamics Case Study for Renewable Energy Company

Companies trying to absorb multiple acquisitions face a systemic internal challenge: to mold and meld legacy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems into a single, unified whole across the enterprise. With the help of Sopris Systems, this company, which represents a large portfolio of operating companies in the clean energy space, was able to create a simple, singular, cloud-based platform to integrate its global enterprises.

Consolidation of Software and Vendors

The company turned to Sopris and Microsoft for the consolidation of software from multiple vendors—including SAP, Oracle, NetSuite, BPC, Great Plains, and Timberline—on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 cloud-based platform.

A Dynamic Cloud ERP Platform to Support M&A activities

Sopris was positioned to deliver a single, integrated ERP solution — and simplicity was the watchword. The client needed a more cost-effective, easier-to-use, and agile platform to support its M&A, wherein companies move into and out of the portfolio on a regular basis. The requirement was to support a wide range of business activities across territories while lowering IT costs across the board, to standardize on a single platform, and to eliminate multiple data sources.

Enabling Enterprise Analytics and Collaboration

The need to improve intelligence across the portfolio was paramount. Their range of sustainable activities generates reams of data, and the Sopris Dynamics 365 implementation delivers information in an actionable form—another plus for the consolidation process within the company.
