Microsoft: Signs You’ve Outgrown Your ERP (eBook)

Artsyl Customers Get More Value from Microsoft Dynamics, Other ERPs with End-to-End Process Automation for P2P, O2C and More

February 07, 2018

A recent ebook from Microsoft explores the signs that your accounting software or legacy systems are putting your business at risk - and why Microsoft Dynamics should be your new ERP system.

“The Business Owner’s Guide for Replacing Accounting Software” (available for download here), the following symptoms point to the need for a new ERP:

  • Too much time wasted dealing with multiple systems that can’t talk to each other.

  • Manual processes are error prone and can’t keep up with increasing demand despite added headcount.

  • Creating and configuring reports it too complicated, and often doesn’t provide the information we needed.

  • Incomplete or incorrect information creates customer dissatisfaction and lost sales.

  • Increasingly stringent compliance and security concerns are unresolved.

  • Productivity is lost spending valuable time switching back and forth between multiple applications and disconnected systems.

Whether you rely on Microsoft Dynamics TODAY, or you’re dependent on a legacy ERP that is slowing down your business, Artsyl Technologies provides a platform that helps companies with data- and document-dependent processes to automate and accelerate their operations painlessly.

As a result, you can get MORE mileage and value from your existing ERP, OR future-proof your investment in your next ERP system to maximize efficiency and ROI.

Leatherman Tool Grows Their Business and Gets More Out of Their Dynamics ERP with docAlpha

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations customers like Leatherman Tool get more out of their ERP system and set themselves up for future growth and efficiency gains by automating their business processes and achieving more timely access to accurate data.

Companies can achieve BOTH greater data/process visibility AND improved efficiency by relying on systems like the docAlpha digital transformation platform. Designed to intelligently extract data from business documents like invoices and orders, docAlpha converting plugs into ecisting ERP/ECM systems to validate extracted information, then provides the workflow tools necessary to automate document handling, data entry and process workflows.

In 2012, Leatherman® was laying the groundwork for a financial process to achieve better visibility and control over its business expenditures. Around that time, IT Director Travis Pierce on board to help the company to modernize the tools and processes they relied upon to achieve those goals.

According to Pierce, Leatherman® previously had invested in tools to streamline operations, like Artsyl Technology’s docAlpha Smart Process Platform that helped to intelligently capture data from vendor invoices. The trouble was that the underlying ERP system and supporting workflow automation they had historically relied upon wasn’t able to keep up with the pace of their business.

“Our prior ERP system was 20 years old and included a lot of customization,” said Pierce. “The old system didn’t provide the flexibility we needed to grow our company and supported added shipping or manufacturing locations.”

To better position itself for growth, Leatherman® decided to migrate to Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. Rather than abandon a supporting system like docAlpha, which had proven its value in eliminating manual data entry and document filing, Leatherman® turned to Artsyl Technologies to deliver integration with Dynamics AX. The result would be an end-to-end automated AP process automation, with docAlpha delivering intelligent capture of data from vendor invoices to inform business rules that would drive the Dynamics AX workflow process.
