Ducks Unlimited Increases Return on Conservation Mission

Ducks Unlimited

As is the case with most nonprofit organizations, Ducks Unlimited needs to drive high end-user productivity and streamline business processes in order to keep operational costs as low as possible.

After a competitive RFP process, Ducks Unlimited resolved the challenge by partnering with Sopris Systems to deploy the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP platform that can be accessed via a web-based, intuitive user-interface. Sopris also provided project management and technical installation expertise as well as training to help minimize employee stress over using new technology and to speed acceptance of the new system.
