Company Says Lean Manufacturing Functionality, Supply Chain Expertise, and Good, Old-Fashioned Trust Were Their Top 3 Decision Criteria
Peachtree Corners, GA — I.B.I.S., Inc., a provider of Microsoft Dynamics supply-chain solutions to the midmarket, is pleased to announce that Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics, product manufacturer and service provider to the general aviation industry for avionics systems, instruments and power solutions, has chosen I.B.I.S., Inc. to help them implement Microsoft Dynamics AX as their lean manufacturing and supply-chain optimization platform.
Mid-Continent embarked on a comprehensive, six-month due diligence project before selecting Microsoft Dynamics AX to be their companywide ERP system. “We knew that we needed a single, integrated system to manage all of our business processes, including Finance, HR, production, distribution, and customer management,” said Cindy Highbarger, Vice President of Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics. “After a thorough evaluation of each of the leading ERP systems, we were pleased to find that Dynamics AX met all of our requirements.”
As with most fast-growing midmarket companies, Mid-Continent was looking for a solution that would accommodate their current and future needs. “In addition to a flexible ERP system, we needed a consulting partner we could trust to stay ahead of the technology curve and guide us through both the near-term and long-term change efforts,” stated Tara Crain, Manager of Information Technology for Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics. “One of the many things that proved to us we could trust I.B.I.S. was the way they handled the evaluation process. They were committed to helping us do what was best for our business, whether it meant working with them or not. We were impressed from the start with their deep industry and technology expertise, but knowing they had our best interest at heart may have been the tipping point in our decision process.”
