CymSTAR, a simulation engineering and manufacturing company, needed to upgrade from AX2012 to Microsoft Dynamics 365 to retain their ERP system supportability. They also wanted to integrate budget and forecasting modules to improve project management, forecasting and resourcing.
Columbus helped the company migrate to the cloud and integrate Microsoft Dynamics 365, as well as remove an inventory customization that was affecting inventory visibility and control. The implementation was completed ahead of schedule and 15 percent under budget, and CymSTAR considers this ERP migration the most successful in their history. The company plans to engage with Columbus on a second phase of improvements.
