Miami, Florida – JULY 11, 2013 — XAPT Corporation, a global Microsoft Dynamics partner, is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Briggs Equipment. XAPT will implement Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers, a solution developed with Microsoft Dynamics technology exclusively for heavy equipment and material handling dealers, which will allow Briggs Equipment to plan and manage business operations throughout its 40 locations in the US and Mexico.
Briggs Equipment, headquartered in Dallas TX, the largest distributor of industrial equipment in North America, made the decision to deploy the XAPT/Microsoft solution, as part of an effort to support their future growth. Brian Evans, Director of IT for Briggs Equipment explains, “Briggs has successfully utilized the Minitrac dealer system for over 25 years. As a result of recent acquisitions and growth, it became obvious that we needed to migrate to a modern platform that will allow us to expand our system functionality and user base for multi-country operations. We turned to the experience of Ultra Consultants to guide us through their diligent process of evaluating and selecting the right system and technology partner for Briggs Equipment.”
Briggs Equipment ultimately turned to global Microsoft partner, XAPT Corporation. “Our vision in partnering with XAPT is to ensure Briggs has another 25 years of successful information system technology for our employees, customers and suppliers as we service our industrial and construction equipment markets.” Comments Mike Winemiller, President, Briggs International.
Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers streamlines and consolidates a dealer’s computer system requirements on a single platform supporting all departments, including Finance, Accounting, Human Resources, Equipment Sales, Equipment Rental, Parts, and Service. The solution enables improved business processes, business intelligence, and is capable of interfacing with many leading OEMs and financial institutions.
“We are humbled and honored with Briggs’ selection of XAPT as their trusted business partner,” said Christopher Kohart, Executive Vice President, XAPT Corporation. “Briggs reputation in the Material Handling marketplace is unrivaled and we have spent the last two years gaining deep insight into their business model. We look forward to a successful project with the Briggs team as they are extremely well prepared to embark on this endeavor.”
