World-Class ERP and Operations for Energy Utilities Company

A Microsoft Dynamics 365 Success Story for the Energy Sector

Digital Transformation Case Study for Electric Utility with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Azure Cloud

Outdated, on-premise solutions were stifling performance, limiting flexibility to evolve and driving a high cost of ownership. It was time for a change. They chose to partner with Sopris because of their deep experience in the electric utilities market, strong technical expertise, change management skills and endorsement by Microsoft as a leading Microsoft partner. 

Comprehensive, Integrated Business Operations

Sopris implemented Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations on Microsoft Azure hosted infrastructure inclusive of core financial management, payroll processing, purchasing and contracts and human capital management in a managed services environment.

In their new environment, business process owners can manage their own data, substantially increasing efficiencies and enabling data driven decision making. Dashboards with drill down capabilities provide management with at-a-glance awareness of performance while creating audit controls for overall business continuity, financial accountability, and transparency.
