Logan Consulting provides guidance and support for an international transportation and logistics company’s implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012’s financial modules.


The Client

Our client provides services such as freight forwarding and logistics management. Their services include transportation insurance, warehousing, distribution, and both air and ocean freight transportation. The company is headquartered in Wisconsin while their holding company is headquartered in Denmark. Our client was established in 1971 to support their parent company. Our client has offices in six countries and partners in over 100 countries.


The Opportunity

The Denmark location has been running Microsoft Dynamics AX for many years and went through an upgrade to 2012 R3 in 2017. In order to streamline our client’s reporting and processes, the holding company decided to bring the client onto AX.

Since the parent company had already implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX, but all of their resources are in Denmark, they engaged Logan Consulting to assist in the implementation.


The Solution

Logan Consulting was chosen to support the implementation of Financials in the US, with Denmark employees assisting in the configuration. An aggressive time line was set to meet a clean cutover at the end of the year. A project plan was put together to implement Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Cash and Bank Management, and eBanking. Additionally, integrations were designed to bring in daily invoices being created in other software systems.


The Results

The corporate goal of combining all legal entities into one ERP system was achieved by implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX in the US.  Additional benefits include:

  • Combined corporate reporting
  • Automated electronic banking using eBanking software to reduce time spent on bank reconciliations, positive pay and ACH transactions.
  • Increased efficiencies through improved user interface inherent in Microsoft Dynamics AX
  • Process improvements in all areas with the increased functionality that Microsoft Dynamics AX provides.
