Aston Martin implements Microsoft for accounts

Car manufacturer Aston Martin implemented an ERP system from Microsoft when it required a new accounting system

Car manufacturer Aston Martin implemented an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system from Microsoft when it required a new accounting system.

The company has implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX to work across its accounts and replace spreadsheets and unconnected databases.

This has enabled the company to put its customer accounts into particular groups to ensure they are managed in a particular way.

Bradley Yorke-Biggs, strategy and IT director at Aston Martin, said the software will sit at the centre of the business. 

“It works well with all our systems, providing us with an accounting platform that allows us to manage all the business challenges and opportunities,” he said.

“We have been able to get financial data generated quickly, our cash flow management processes and aged debtors reports are rapidly processed, and it gives us much greater efficiency in reporting.”

Microsoft partner eBECS supported the Aston Martin implementation.

The car manufacturer is currently considering moving systems to the cloud, for which it is evaluating Microsoft Office 365.

“With the full implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, we will have a far more accurate and resilient product structure and engineering change management environment,” said Yorke-Biggs. “Currently this is a manual process, but this will bring with it an electronic change management capability, which is a big leap for us.”
