ZAP Rescues a Distributor’s Dynamics AX Installation with New Business Intelligence Solution

VIS is the service arm for a group of import and distribution companies based in South Carolina. Members of this group supply large wholesale retailers such as Costco, Northern Tool and many private label tooling companies such as Sunex. The core business across the majority of the group is import and distribution of professional automotive tools and engines.

VIS completed a corporate-wide Microsoft AX install in January 2011. After completing the install, management wanted daily and strategic reporting, but reporting was difficult to obtain because of the volume and complexity of the data as well as having separate AX cubes. Initially, data was exported to Excel and then distributed to various employees within the organization. Despite the money spent, the reporting still wasn’t what they had hoped. Management felt that the investment in AX was a failure. A solution was drastically needed.
