“I can definitely recommend Dynamics 365 Business Central. It’s a great product and does everything we need. We had a very good relationship with our implementation team, and we’ve already recommended them to other companies we work with.”

Park Sheet Metal finds security, efficiency and room to grow by moving to Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Park Sheet Metal produces custom metal components and assemblies primarily for the automotive industry. They have a broad customer base with many big names, such as Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Lotus, Nissan, and Volta.

The challenge.

Since 2017 the company has doubled in size. Their current system was no longer being supported, and they were already struggling with manual processes and were struggling with the lack of reporting it was providing.

Working from 4 different facilities, and with many remote workers, security was a key consideration in their new system. So looking for a new more advanced system that was securely hosted in the cloud instead of on their own servers was key.

The solution.

Having used Dynamics Nav in the past, they we interested in Business Central due to the familiarity of the Microsoft interface and functionality. “Microsoft supports their products, continually releasing feature updates, bug fixes, and security patches, which is important when you need to depend on a system for years to come.”

The team was impressed by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central during their evaluation, and also recognised that moving to a modern, cloud ERP solution would greatly improve their data security and easily connect all their facilities and remote workers.

Productivity gains, increased security & seamless Go-Live.

Business Central has given Park Sheet Metal a new future proofed system to power their business. With automation to increase productivity that was slowing them down, allowing them to manage their full sales cycle from multiple locations as well as with contractors, and all powered by the latest Microsoft Cloud security.

And best of all, the seamless transition to Go-Live meant there were no issues with their customers or down time when they swapped to the new system.

“In our old ERP, we would post a purchase invoice with a reference number to help us locate the scanned copy in a separate system. Now, in Business Central, when we enter the invoice data, we scan the original at the same time. Everything is stored in one place. If an auditor requests supporting documentation, it’s available.”
“We sell thousands of parts and include pictures of each product on various documents, like packing lists. With Sage, we exported a document and manually added the pictures. Now, with Business Central, the component pictures can be included in all documents, ensuring accuracy and saving us time.”
“ We’ve been really happy with Bam Boom Cloud. We changed a lot of our requirements during implementation because, as we tested the new process, we found that it would work for one customer but not another. So they worked hard to ensure the system could handle both methods for us. ”
“ Most of our customers didn’t notice the change. If you can carry out a full ERP implementation without affecting day-to-day operations, you’ve done it right. I think this was the ultimate measure of success for our ERP project. ”
