High-tech manufacturer achieves operational efficiency with 68.8 percent reduction in manpower needed for account management work
4-page Case Study posted: 05/15/2013

With its 2020 Vision for the Keihin Group, Keihin Corporation aims to expand globally by promoting various initiatives such as the development of information infrastructure that links offices worldwide, and achieve its goal of becoming a truly independent system parts manufacturer capable of competing with mega-suppliers on products and technology that contribute to the global environment.

It leveraged on “Management Consulting”, a corporate technical support service provided by Microsoft Premier Support team. Through Management Consulting, it was able to identify issues in its business which led to a breakthrough.

Central Bucks School District   1 reviews
Pennsylvania's Third-Largest School District Increases Efficiency by 80 Percent
4-page Case Study posted: 03/08/2012

Pennsylvania’s Central Bucks School District needed a more flexible software system for managing its operations. For more than 20 years, the organization relied on a legacy system. However, this system lacked the built-in capabilities to enable Central Bucks to efficiently adapt and streamline core processes, such as budget administration and purchasing. After evaluating several enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, the organization opted to implement K12 Enterprise from Microsoft partner K12 Enterprise. This solution tailors functionality in Microsoft Dynamics NAV to the unique challenges of K-12 school systems. Now, with a flexible, powerful system built on Microsoft SQL Server technology, Central Bucks has strengthened compliance through better reporting and increased the efficiency of key processes by up to 80 percent.

Salt Lake City Reduces Plan Review Process Time up to 50 Percent; Spurs Economic Growth
4-page Case Study posted: 02/29/2012

Salt Lake City was one municipality among thousands in the United States to be hit by the recession. But it was one of the first to respond by streamlining its building permit process. Making that process faster, simpler, and easier for real estate developers would attract more of them to the city, officials reasoned. So, the city adopted a Microsoft technology–based solution featuring a document management interface that was tailored for the permit process by provider Avolve Software. The results: The time required for the process has been reduced by up to 50 percent, potentially shaving days or weeks off the typical schedule. Even the carbon footprint generated by the process has been reduced. Salt Lake City now points to businesses—from a major retailer to a global manufacturer—that have launched or expanded in the city as a result.

4-page Case Study posted: 07/18/2011

Chicago-based Dutch Farms has 160 employees and distributes a private-label line of dairy products and eggs and a range of refrigerated and frozen foods.

Since deployment, the company has grown its revenue by 25 percent without needing to add staff to back-office positions, gained comprehensive insight and control over operations, and sharpened its competitive edge with both small and large retailers alike.

Daily Mail Group Replaces Existing Middleware with Simpler Orchestration Layer
4-page Case Study posted: 07/04/2011

United Kingdom publisher A&N Media was finding that its existing business integration and management environment required a skills base that was not in line with its decision to standardise on Microsoft technologies. In addition, there was greater internal development capacity in using Microsoft middleware and the Microsoft .NET Framework. The IT team deployed Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 to integrate disparate systems, enhance end-to-end connectivity, and exchange data more quickly. As a result, A&N Media has achieved its consolidation objectives, improved the supportability of its integration platform, and seen significant performance gains in data capture and aggregation. In one test run, the new solution is exceeded targets by more than 600 per cent and by 64 per cent in a second example.
