Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Dynamics AX)

Microsoft Dynamics AX is well suited for medium to smaller branch offices or operations where SAP products are not suitable due to lack of resources. It interfaces well with SAP for data configuration to have seamless transactions with our main ERP and BI teams, yet still allow smaller branch and satellite offices to do their job. For larger facilities (500 or more employees) we find Microsoft Dynamics AX to be limiting in features and robust role assignments as well as granular workflow to cover the entire operations in manufacturing and refining.

QAD

If you're setting up operations where you have to manage manufacturing builds from raw components to finished goods, I would recommend QAD. It's nice to have subassemblies part numbers for your builds and enter in the number of accepted quantities and rejects. QAD is very helpful if you have a lot of parts floating around. I would not buy QAD if you only have to manage less than ~20 parts... just use Excel.

Pros

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Dynamics AX)

  • Pricing: Microsoft Dynamics AX gives us good flexibility in how we price our products.
  • UX: Microsoft Dynamics AX has a good user interface to put valuable information on the screen for users.
  • Inventory Management: Microsoft Dynamics AX does a great job at giving us insight into our inventory.
Caleb Unruh | TrustRadius Reviewer

QAD

  • The QAD Enterprise application is great, we only started using this application a few years ago. The Master Scheduling Workbench has been a great improvement to our daily operations.
  • The Web-based QAD Supplier Portal has also been implemented recently in our company and has been a huge help to our purchasing and materials department.
  • The QAD support that we receive has helped our company grow and is a major asset in upcoming projects.
Amanda Bell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Dynamics AX)

  • MRP can be slow to adapt to changes in actual production or supply chain transactions.
  • Setting up number sequences seems a trivial matter, but these numbers ID transactions once they are in the ledger and are key--easy to miss this point in the implementation process.
  • Bank rec being easily automated and able to quickly plug into a bank back end to get data is not the best.
  • Payment processing can be 'clunky' based on checks, ACH, Wires...as some of these items are not triggered out of the box in AX, bur are easily added --talking ACH and Wires specifically.
Jay Omdahl | TrustRadius Reviewer

QAD

  • Needs more flexibility to add/configure new indexes (if using the Progress Database) as the current indexes on key tables like transaction history are not helpful
  • Need a better support system for the TMS/Precision interface
  • Need better KnowledgeBase articles to understand the innerds of Pricing functionality

Microsoft did a reasonably good job supporting the deployment efforts to multiple factories and ongoing stabilization. I don't think that MES was intended for the large enterprise volume and complexity levels our operations required.

Some rough spots, but ultimately worked out. The contract didn't appear to be structured to support the level of overlapping facility deployments required to meet timeline commitments. Merging cultures on the program was also challenging. Overall, not an easy implementation by any stretch. Everyone did the best they could.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Dynamics AX)

Microsoft Dynamics AX is more user friendly compared to our old ERP system.With the growth of the company, the old way to generate from the old ERP system is too slow and not competent enough.We need to get the data as fast as possible.We need to get the consolidated data in an easier way.That is why we switched to Microsoft Dynamics AX.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

QAD

QAD stacks up well against other similar software that I have used. All in all the ability to add or subtract modules from QAD is a great advantage in having a flexible system that you can start with and adapt as your needs changes. This allows for small companies to use QAD and not just limit it to bigger companies.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Dynamics AX)

  • Automated art approvals - We were able to save the company thousands of dollars a year by eliminating an employee to send art approvals out. Not only eliminate an employee but are now able to send thousands more emails at a time.
  • With AX our agents are able to see exactly where an order is in the building. Our process flow is extremely strong with AX on our side.
Geomar Morales | TrustRadius Reviewer

QAD

  • QAD has made it easier for the operations engineering team to narrow down processes where reject rate relates to the highest cost so that they can solve those issues first.
  • QAD has made it easy for the production team to print work orders and track daily builds. This saves a lot of time from the old method of tracking in Word docs or Excel.
  • Sometimes QAD needs a lot of maintenance on the back end so we had to hire a full time employee to manage the data systems.
