Fujitsu Offers FUJITSU Industry Solution for Microsoft Dynamics® AX, for Fast, Low-Cost ERP Setup Overseas
Broad selection of options, including three industry-specific solutions and cloud capable of utilizing the latest Microsoft Azure features
Fujitsu has announced that from today it will begin to roll out three new solutions for FUJITSU Industry Solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX to help Japanese companies quickly and inexpensively deploy ERP systems at their overseas locations as they expand outside Japan.
For Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft’s globally integrated ERP solution, Fujitsu will now offer a sales and service company solution, a cost management and analysis solution, and an automobile supplier solution to address specific industries and work processes where the needs of overseas locations are highest. These services will be offered on premise and through FUJITSU Cloud A5 for Microsoft Azure, a Fujitsu cloud service that enables use of the latest Microsoft Azure features.
This will enable customers to quickly and flexibly build optimal ERP systems for their business outside of Japan to meet the increasingly diverse needs of their customers.
To quickly get their businesses at overseas locations up and running, Japanese companies have an increasing need to quickly construct small-scale systems that are suited to each of their overseas locations and that reduce operational burden on local offices.
In 2014, Fujitsu entered into an alliance with Microsoft Japan Co., Ltd in the ERP field in Japan, and since then has conducted sales of Microsoft Dynamics AX licenses and constructed systems for numerous customers.
In line with the business environments and ICT policies of customers that are expanding their businesses globally, particularly in Asian countries, Fujitsu is now offering FUJITSU Industry Solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX in a cloud environment with three types of solutions, enabling customers’ ERP systems to be extended to their overseas locations quickly and inexpensively.
Features of the New Services
1. Three industry-specific solutions
Fujitsu will offer three types of solutions to meet the high demands of Japanese companies in their overseas regions and industries/business conditions.
(1) Solution for Sales and Service Companies
Building on the company’s own know-how with overseas expansion, Fujitsu is providing this solution with business processes localized for each country to overseas sales companies and to firms contracted to handle overseas services. This enables companies to streamline bidding, project management, and sales activities.
(2) Solution for Cost Management and Analysis
This service centralizes management of budgets, results, and simulation data to improve management quality, and provides meaningful information for business analysis and profit management. This helps process-industry companies around the world with precise cost and profit management.
(3) Solution for Automobile Suppliers
This service implements features needed for transactions between auto suppliers and auto makers, including order acceptance and shipping-related functions (order intake, production planning, shipment planning, shipment inspection, payment management), and helps companies use transaction data effectively and run their business processes efficiently.
2. Enable use of Microsoft Azure’s latest features
The three new solutions will be offered on premise and through FUJITSU Cloud A5 for Microsoft Azure, which enables use of the latest features in Microsoft’s Microsoft Azure. In addition, the solutions also enable use of value-added services, such as Fujitsu’s own cloud-based, high-quality support services, software services, and integrated monitoring and operations services. Customers will be able to use hybrid configurations that are combined with the on premise or private cloud-based mission critical systems of their headquarters in Japan.
3. Local deployment and support network
In addition to Japan, this solution will also be available from local Fujitsu Group companies in Singapore and Thailand. This allows customers to feel secure in receiving local service in the Asia region as well. In addition, customers may also utilize the FUJITSU Cloud IaaS Private Hosted LCP cloud platform, which is Fujitsu’s datacenter environment in Singapore.
