"Microsoft has always been an essential part of our growth strategy," states Peter Weiss, CEO of a-solutions. “Ever since our genesis in 1999, we have been committed to Microsoft, building deep expertise in the MS Dynamics AX space,” Weiss adds. The company trains their employees in a dedicated academy with the right skill-set to be the ‘most trusted advisor’ when it comes to AX.
a-solutions delivers every component of the Application Lifecycle on AX, from the implementation and sustenance to optimization through their Global Delivery model. With offices in Western Europe (Copenhagen), Central Eastern Europe (Vilnius), GCC (Dubai), and Africa (Nairobi, Kenya and Lagos, Nigeria), a-solutions’ team is capable of handling implementations all over the world. “Our global delivery model truly steps up when we have to deliver to our enterprise clients who have sites spread across the globe,” says Weiss.
In the AX space, a-solutions has specifically designed their portfolio around four key verticals—Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), professional services, distribution, and retail. "Financial services organizations are fast realizing the value we deliver with MS Dynamics around their complex financial processes,” says Weiss. When the Danish mortgage credit institute, BRFkredit, decided to transition from SAP to Microsoft Dynamics AX, they approached a-solutions to rule out the risks of poor AX implementation. BRFkredit wanted to incorporate .NET support and include over 120 users of multiple types at the end of the implementation phase. The adept consultants of a-solutions, with extensive industry experience, made themselves fully available onsite to see this transition through. As a result, the client significantly reduced the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and gained a premium implementation of Dynamics AX.

“We have always kept a close watch on Microsoft’s technology initiatives,” says Weiss. “Ever since Microsoft unveiled the ‘mobile-first cloud-first’ strategy in 2014, we have been transforming our technology and consulting practice to meet market demands.” a-solutions is one of the few Dynamics AX partners to offer a cloud-based payroll solution completely embedded inside AX. The company has adapted the Payroll solution to meet GCC and WECA (West, East and Central Africa) financial requirements. “We are also investing in our key verticals around Azure Internet of Things (IoT) technology to offer enhanced business value to our clients on their AX platform,” confirms Weiss. These investments in business domain skills for process consulting are innately embedded in a-solutions' implementation and optimization offerings.
The company employs a flat structure within their work culture with an ‘open door’ policy among employees. “We encourage our people to take responsibility and grow as we firmly believe that individual growth gives rise to the collective growth of the organization,” says Weiss. “We have more than 14 nationalities working together at a-solutions to deliver a common vision.”
With strategy and vision, a-solutions is expanding its customer base into Kenya and Nigeria. These expansions are supported by a dedicated AX helpdesk, for a-solutions' clients that span multiple time zones and 12 languages. Surging ahead, the company will continue to infuse progressive technology trends within their services, while maintaining a deep commitment toward their clients and a dedicated partnership with Microsoft.
