Wanted to share this great post by Microsoft on the Microsoft Brightside of Government Blog. Check it out!When process meets public sector – join us for the launch of Dynamics AX 2012
It’s no secret that state and local governments are facing economic uncertainty, and as a result many are working to identify ways to make their business processes more efficient and simplify operations. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a powerful tool for this purpose, but many government agencies are stuck with ineffective ERP systems that aren’t designed with public sector needs in mind. That’s why we’re really excited about the upcoming global launch of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. During this free 90-minute online event, you can hear directly from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer-as well as other executives, customers, and analysts-about the latest innovations in Dynamics AX 2012.
One great example of a local government that has adopted Dynamics is the City of Redmond, a smaller city that strives to provide a full range of services comparable to a large city. With an eye toward the future, Redmond’s Mayor John Marchione and his leadership team developed a visionary technology plan that included overhauling their financial management tools. Redmond recently deployed Dynamics AX 2012 to replace an inflexible ERP system that couldn’t accommodate the way that the city’s departments and staff worked.
Using Dynamics as a foundation for its broader technology initiatives, Redmond streamlined operations, empowered employees with meaningful data, simplified its workflow for business licenses, added new service management and fleet maintenance systems, and automated the process of developing and maintaining the city council agenda. All of these improvements are creating a direct impact on how well the city serves the community, communicates with residents, and enables citizens to interact with the city (to hear more about Redmond’s story, check out the full case study).
So what does this mean for other public sector agencies? One of the great results of Redmond’s implementation is that,during the development of Dynamics AX 2012, more than 700 requests and suggestions by City of Redmond employees turned into functionality that is part of the solution. For example, Dynamics allows state and local governments to anticipate and adapt quickly to changing demands thanks to a unified process repository built on government best practices. Since it works likeOffice, you can also take advantage of a simple, familiar user experience and integration with your existing technologies.
