Customers and References
The selection of customers and references below has been chosen to illustrate the breadth of the companies that benefit from using Annata 365 for Dynamics.
An American Manufacturer of Vacation Vehicles
This is a company with over 600 employees and almost 600 retailers. Several of its departments previously used three heavily customized, inflexible ERP systems. Its goal was to eliminate as many systems as possible and gather as many processes as possible into one single system. The solution was Annata 365 Dynamics, where the company could consolidate its processes for manufacturing, retail outlet, and spare parts and warranty management in one platform. The company appreciates that the workload for handling warranty claims alone has been reduced by half since switching to Annata. There has also been a significant decrease in incorrect or excessive warranty payments.
Brimborg—A European Vehicle Distributor and Dealer
Brimborg has a long history with Annata and is making full use of the system. Annata 365 for Dynamics is the only system it uses to manage imports, distribution, sales, and service for several vehicle brands. Business processes for both ERP and CRM have been optimized and digitized through an extensive modernization of both back-office processes and the user interface.
In only five months, Brimborg managed to move all processes for managing imports, distribution, sales, and after-markets from older systems to one single platform. This was all successfully done despite the fact that Brimborg distributes cars and other types of vehicles for more than 10 different brands (Volvo Cars, Ford, Citroën, Mazda, Volvo Trucks, Volvo Bus, and Volvo CE, etc.).
All our DMS-processes are supported just as well—or even better—by Annata as by our previous systems. From day one, Annata has had a very positive effect on all daily routines in the organization. Service times have been reduced incredibly, since all necessary information is only a click away.
Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE)—Heavy Machinery
Volvo CE was looking for a DMS system that would increase the efficiency of all its processes throughout Europe. The previously customized and internally developed systems had been used for over 20 years and had been outdated for quite some time: It was time to switch to a modern ERP system.
Volvo CE chose Annata as its end-to-end solution for Central Europe and plans to eventually implement the system globally. Thanks to Dynamics 365 and the Annata solution, Volvo is now able to digitally transform the whole customer experience and increase digital customer engagement at the same time.
