We understand that, in order to thrive, your business needs to achieve a single 360 degree view of your information. Employees across all functions need to be able to rely on this and apply it to their specific responsibilities, eliminating manual processes and the hassle of paper records and spreadsheets. You want more accurate data, better visibility, and more integrated information — but implementing an ERP system to deliver this means significant and complex change to business processes.
We recognise that you want to use the power of unified information to make better business decisions, increasing efficiency and breaking down barriers between business units while delivering in-depth insight into company operations and performance.

It’s an agile approach to ERP implementation that enables earlier testing in the project lifecycle, reducing risk by delivering early business validation within sprints, eradicating delays.
Essentials’ pre-configured tools deliver your business requirements out-of-the-box, removing the need for lengthy process analysis and design, and drastically reducing ERP solution customisation. This high degree of pre-configuration cuts the total cost of solution ownership and makes upgrades easy.

We liked Hitachi Solutions’ approach because they challenged our thinking, came up with new ideas and were incredibly knowledgeable about Microsoft Dynamics.
