About the Client

Ahresty Wilmington Corporation was founded in 1988 and is located in Wilmington, Ohio. They have grown steadily as a casting manufacturer, machined and assembled castings, while staying on the leading edge of technology.


The Challenge

At Ahresty, company growth was outpacing the capabilities of their customized Microsoft Dynamics SL solution. The procurement processes were very manual, requiring the transfer of paper forms from start to finish. Additionally, the Inventory costing system required manual intervention and multiple integration points. The team at Ahresty desired a modern ERP solution to automate processes and connect their mission critical operational systems.


The Solution

Ahresty selected Microsoft Dynamics AX to manage financials, product master, sales and marketing, inventory, transportation, and procurement. The team at Ahresty enhanced financial report development with Management Reporter. Ahresty leveraged Dynamics AX workflows to streamline multiple processes, including AP Requisitions and Invoices. Implementation of advanced processes for procurement and financials further reduced manual steps. The AX platform provides an integration platform to ensure seamless transaction sharing with their industry standard EDI and Shipping solutions.
