Faced with only limited reporting capability from the incumbent Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP system, BTI set itself the challenge of finding a solution that would deliver real out-of-the-box BI reporting with a traditional finance perspective.
Martin Pitson, BTI’s Vice President of IT and CIO, explained the background to the decision to implement PrecisionPoint in 2012: “We initially looked at the software in 2010, but the only option at that time was to acquire the software with a traditional licensing model. We didn’t choose to go with them because of our limited internal resources to implement a project of that scale. When a managed on-premise model was introduced, we were excited to be able to implement the solution cost effectively, and within days of signing the contract.”
“From my perspective, the change to the managed model was the key to us selecting the PrecisionPoint solution,” Martin says.
