Houston—March 20, 2013—Cost management and profitability solutions provider Acorn Systems Inc., a Microsoft Managed Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner, now provides Microsoft Dynamics AX customers with a new integrated solution. Designed to drive even greater profitability and cost efficiency from their ERP investment, Acorn’s Total Profitability for Microsoft Dynamics AX is available immediately to Microsoft Dynamics AX resellers and customers.
A Microsoft Managed ISV Partner for eight years, Acorn recently signed a global strategic collaboration agreement with Microsoft to drive mutual innovation and solutions for manufacturing and other industry verticals.
“We are excited to welcome Acorn as a member of the Global ISV program,” said Doug Kennedy, Vice President of Partners for Microsoft Dynamics. “Their long history of delivering value through profitability and cost management solutions aligns directly with our goals for the initiative. Acorn, in combination with Microsoft Dynamics AX, allows our customers to drive more profitable volume and truly understand and manage their operations.”
An easily configured, highly flexible modeling and calculation solution, Total Profitability for Dynamics AX combines Acorn’s ability to drive real business insight with the proven backbone of Microsoft Dynamics AX.
“Our goal is to deliver true visibility into the business operations of today’s complex enterprises, delivering insight into customers and products, understanding which are making or losing money and why,” said Jerome Patterson, Chief Marketing Officer, Acorn Systems Inc. “A simple premise, but one that has been stuck for years at a gross level and not taken into account concepts like cost to serve and net landed cost,” says Jerome Patterson, Chief Marketing Officer of Acorn.
“We will make Microsoft Dynamics AX customers more profitable and allow partner resellers to further delight and deliver value to their strategic clients,” he continued. “Basically this Acorn integrated solution is getting back to the basic premise of ERP – to drive profitability and cost efficiency,” Patterson concluded.
Joint customers of Total Profitability for Dynamics AX will understand the true operating profit of customers and products, including the ‘cost to serve’ and ‘net landed cost.’
“We are excited about the potential of the Acorn solution to truly transform the business value our clients see from their investments with Microsoft and our company,” said Luc Van Aelbroeck, Managing Partner of Delaware Consulting. “With Acorn, we know we can drive profitable volume and outpace the competition.”
