I like to deliver sensible solutions, meeting the clients goals and timescales. I would like to gain early exposure to AX7, the next release of Dynamics AX due Q1 of 2016.

AX2012 R3 - International Roll-Out Acting as the Lead Functional Consultant and Interim AX Project Manager role, to manage the deployment of a close to standard AX intercompany solution with the UK into 4 countries Spain, Italy, France and Germany. This involved partner selection and ongoing management. AX2012 R3 - Lead Consultant (Interim Project Manager) Initially working as a Functional Consultant on the project in the Sales & Logistics area, I was asked by the client to take on-board the Implementation Lead role (Interim AX Project Manager role) when their in-house PM resigned, prior to developments being delivered to them by the partner. I introduced Microsoft Lifecycle Services into the project and guided them through the testing, training and UK go-live of this AX2012 R3 implementation that involved integrations with Magento (Web) and JDA RedPrairie (warehousing) applications. AX2012 R2 I supported the Logistics, Production and Repair Tracks working as the internal functional consultant with the end user business process owner. My role is to assist both the end user and the reseller to ensure that the right solution is designed, developed and tested to ensure the project success.

I worked on the Supply Chain/Logistics areas of the template, liaising with the end users ERP specialist.The template was initially developed internally with no reseller support. This was a great opportunity to get an early exposure to AX2012 and to get to grips with some of the new functionality at that time. (AX2009) - AX Project Manager I was the internal IS & AX Project Manager managing the relationship between the end user and the reseller. My role was to manage the implementation, ensure that the business goals were achieved and that the right solution was created.

Supporting the sales & logistics streams with general onsite AX support in the run up to the go-live of their solution.
