Miami, Florida – JANUARY 29, 2013 — XAPT Corporation, a global Microsoft Dynamics partner, is pleased to announce the ERP Implementation project kick-off with Whayne Supply/Walker Machinery. XAPT will implement Microsoft Dynamics AX2012 for Equipment Dealers, which will allow the company to plan and manage business operations throughout its 27 locations.
Microsoft Dynamics AX2012 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 and lifecycle management, Equipment Rental, Parts (new, used and tear-down), Service, and Power Systems. The solution enables improved business process and business intelligence, integrates with Caterpillar systems, and is capable of interfacing with many leading OEMs and financial institutions.
