An international medical waste removal services provider completed a successful Dynamics AX implementation in Europe with Logan Consulting providing business process and AX functional expertise both remotely and on site.


The Client

This compliance company specializes in collecting and disposing regulated substances throughout Western Europe. In addition to the waste collection service in Ireland, the company also has a compliance program that consists of training, consulting, inbound/outbound communications, ambulatory, data reporting, and other regulatory compliance services throughout other European countries. It also has service offerings in Pharmaceutical returns and disposal, hazardous waste management, communication solutions, containers, mail-back, and associated products. As of February 3, 2017 this corporation has a market cap at approximately $6.5 billion.


The Opportunity

As a publicly traded multi-billion dollar corporation, the executives of the company are constantly looking into expanding its services and reach across the globe. In order to introduce their European processing centers to new work streams and business processes, the corporation required an ERP system that could be quickly implemented, require minor customization, and provide leading edge financial capability to a strong financial team. The new ERP system would support a light version of Trade and Logistics, replace a legacy system (ExChequer) and maintain integrations with home grown solutions until the other European entities are ready to replace them with Dynamics AX.

The medical waste disposal corporation engaged Logan Consulting to assist them in implementing Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Purchasing/Inventory/Sales in Ireland.


The Logan Consulting Solution

This international corporation selected Microsoft Dynamics AX as its worldwide ERP choice, and had previously implemented AX’s financial modules. Once the financial phase was completed, they engaged Logan Consulting to lead the Purchasing/Inventory/Sales implementation and lay the foundation for future sites and countries. To support this goal, Logan Consulting developed an approach to uncover all of their requirements for Trade and Logistics. This exercise determined what was necessary for their core business, and it allowed the business to seamlessly implement an AX model once other countries were brought on. The exercise captured 80% of total requirements. Together the representatives from the internal team and Logan built a plan that led to the successful implementation of Purchasing, Inventory, and Sales in Ireland.


The Results

By implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX in a manner that allowed the business process to dictate the design and configuration of AX, the international medical waste management company was able to recognize the following results and benefits:

  • Simplify the Purchase Requisition process
  • Create approval limits for employees
  • 360 degree view of the inventory
  • Reduce the amount of time it took to pay vendors
  • Workflow to multiple employees prevented invoicing bottlenecks
  • Purchase orders were maintained in the same database as financials
  • Inventory transactions provided the floor with anticipated receipts
  • Utilized AX out of the box functionality to reduce time and spend on initial customization
