Levtech Consulting deploys Microsoft Dynamics AX at Simba Toys
18th June 2015
Manufacturer and distributor of international toy and stationery brands, Simba Middle East has gone live with their ERP system, Microsoft Dynamics AX, in the Middle East. The renowned ERP solution was deployed over the last 6 months by leading Microsoft Dynamics partner, Levtech Consulting.

The consulting firm engaged with Simba Middle East to study and automate processes across finance, supply chain, warehousing and sales, covering seven entities in the MENA region and India.

Based on Microsoft Sure step project methodology, the project initially started with a set of process workshops which involved key operational members from Simba Toys, and senior consultants from Levtech Consulting. Based on the same, Levtech Consulting delivered a Functional Requirements Document (FRD) which detailed the processes and activities at Simba toys, thereby setting the tone for the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics AX. The project then went through a series of processes including configuration, design and development, pilot testing and user trainings to map the processes on to the ERP system and empower users to utilize the features within Microsoft Dynamics AX. In line with the initial project plan, Levtech Consulting was able to move Simba Middle East on to Microsoft Dynamics AX in less than 6 months of intense implementation activity.

We are delighted with the successful deployment of Microsoft Dynamics AX at Simba Middle East. With expanding regional operations and a growing team of professionals, it was important for us to standardize our processes to enable sustainable organizational growth. At the same time, it was also critical that we have a highly simple system to provide high user adoption levels and a steep learning curve. We chose Microsoft Dynamics AX due to its high ease-of-use and depth of functionality. The ERP was deployed by our consulting partners, Levtech Consulting, who did an excellent job of understanding our processes and consultatively deploying industry best practices through Microsoft Dynamics AX. We especially appreciated the smooth and highly efficient transition from our old system towards Microsoft Dynamics said Mr. Christian Johansson, Financial Controller, Simba Middle East.

After a grueling 6-month implementation, we are delighted and extremely satisfied with the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics AX at Simba Toys. Though there were some challenges in areas such as data management and user requirement mapping, we were able to address most system needs through the robust functionality available within Microsoft Dynamics AX, backed by well-tested customizations for certain localized requirements. We also had a fairly demanding timeline to complete the project, which we quite comfortably achieved. I would also like to mention that we were strongly supported by the core team and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Simba Toys. We look forward to expanding and optimizing our current deployment of Microsoft Dynamics AX at Simba Toys, added Shajith Kumar, Director – Professional Services, Levtech Consulting.

Further to the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics AX at Simba Middle East, Levtech Consulting is currently working on creating an Apple iPad -based sales catalog solution, which integrates with Microsoft Dynamics AX for inventory levels and prices. Levtech Consulting is also deploying Targit BI to provide a flexible, dashboard-driven Decision Support System for Simba Toys.
