Green Future Innovations, Inc. (GFI), a joint venture corporation by and among Filipino and Japanese partners, recently deployed Microsoft Dynamics AX to ensure that its company received the best solution in the market to support the daily operations of the corporation.
GFI is a corporation that aims to contribute to the domestic supply of renewable energy and is fully committed towards a green and sustainable development through its ethanol plant located in San Mariano, Isabel. The company wanted a solution that everyone will be most comfortable with, having an interface that can be easily understood.
GFI immediately acted on the situation to address the problem and made sure to evaluate and deploy the best Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, which will ease their business productivity in the long run. “Given there are many Financial and Enterprise Resource Planning solutions in the market, our company had to make sure that we purchase a business application and solution that will grow with us,” said Leonides Tolentino, AVP for IT, Green Future Innovations, Inc.
After some evaluations, analysis and studying, GFI then chose Microsoft Dynamics AX and created a database on the Microsoft platform, allowing employees to customize and assign levels of access for different users.
“Microsoft Dynamics AX helps manage the complex business services and transactions within the organization and provides the business insight to further compete and work more effectively and efficiently,” said Lyn Reyes, Business Lead for Microsoft Dynamics, Microsoft Philippines.
Microsoft Dynamics AX is an ERP solution package designed to streamline processes across the corporation’s business services, human resources, financial and supply chain. Microsoft Dynamics AX provides real-time insight into manufacturing processes to raise production efficiency and at the same time, reduce overall operational costs. As the solution offers a service-oriented feature, it allows corporations to adjust and fit the ERP solution to their business needs.
The deployment and implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX provided GFI with a stable and reliable IT infrastructure that contributed to the significant increase in business productivity and cost-effective means. With the implementation of the Microsoft Dynamics AX, GFI now has a picture of the day-to-day financial-related transactions within the company.
“We were able to create different user groups on the different Microsoft Dynamics AX modules that we have, ensuring that users are allowed to access features and functionalities and view only those data that are specific to them,” emphasized Tolentino.
The company is confident that the underlying development tool is easily understood and that talent acquisition will be easier for GFI. “We are confident that we will be able to monitor critical transactions in order for us to ensure that this has a positive impact on our cash flow in terms of responsible fund management and allocation and be able to determine key areas that need improvement,” Tolentino shared.
GFI has also already created a working committee with representatives coming from its finance, accounting, operations and IT departments who will work out the roadmap to extend the functionality of Microsoft Dynamics AX to support the company’s system in agriculture, manufacturing, and human resources. According to Tolentino, Microsoft has been working hard through the years to seamlessly incorporate all its business applications with security and ease of management in mind.
“We are looking to enable all our mobile and remote users to connect to our company and access the necessary information whenever and wherever they are. Given the advanced information on the direction of product life cycle of MS Dynamics AX, we are assured that our investment is protected and that support updates will be available for us,” concluded Tolentino.
