Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Customer Profile

Easy Greens Farming and Farm Produce provides farming services, horticultural specialities and fresh produce to the community. The business is located at Plot 149 Springbokstreet, Waterval Pretoria, Gauteng.

Business Situation

Easy Greens Farming and Farm Produce required the implementation of a flexible and efficient ERP solution to streamline their financial and procurement operations.

The company chose Strategix to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV following a period of scoping and business process evaluation to meet its specific needs.

Business Solution

The implementation consisted of financial and procurement modules in line with the requirements set out during the proposal phase.

Strategix has also developed a customised farming operations module with a specific focus on cost management of critical agricultural expenses.

The module includes functionality to account and report on financial transactions for various partnership agreements specific to the client in the agricultural industry.

Benefits and Results

“We believe that the selection of an implementation partner is as important as the product selected,” said Emile Marais, CFO Easy Greens Farming and Farm Produce.

Critical factors for the success of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV customised implementation, in this case, depended on Strategix’s ability to:

  • Select a team with appropriate product technical knowledge
  • Analyse business processes and recommend the most capable system solutions to facilitate the envisioned business process
  • Support the documentation process and change requests
  • Setup the NAV software solution to align with the client’s requirements

 “Strategix Leadership provided hands-on technical input throughout the project and used the same team of system developers for the initial project proposal and ultimate product delivery. It was one of the items that differentiated them from similar service providers,” concluded Marais.

Easy Greens Farming and Farm Produce is now in the process of evaluating options for the second phase of implementation requirements with Strategix.
