The market for Dynamics AX is rapidly growing, mainly due to its flexibility and affordability as compared to other tier 1 ERP
products. As reputable experts with a unique skillset in the Dynamics AX world, AXSource earns a top spot among their global competitors for successfully assisting and implementing complex Dynamics AX solutions for clients and partners alike.
ERP at its Best
AXOQCS™ is built on Microsoft’s Dynamics AX ERP which seamlessly bridges the regulatory, quality, and compliance gap currently present in standard ERPs. Life sciences companies are under intense scrutiny to be compliant with multiple industry standards like Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). Yet after purchasing expensive ERP systems for the company’s operations, it still doesn’t help with ensuring compliance set by various governing bodies across the globe. Companies have to either build the necessary software/system for their requirements in-house,or purchase additional software making it quite costly option for the company.
With AXOQCS™, Microsoft Dynamics AX becomes the only tier 1 ERP that covers regulatory and quality requirements of life
sciences and pharma companies. Small to mid-size life sciences companies usually cannot afford a complete ERP solution and they either rely on a mix of different software together, or mix software with paper based processes. Dynamics AX is a flexible solution and with AXOQCS™ as an add-on, it instantaneously creates an affordable all-in-one solution—making it easier to afford a top tier 1 ERP.
