Qatar's Construction Development Company (CDC) has selected Levtech Consulting to deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX to automate business functions across all of its operations.

The construction and development company offers products and services across all parts of a construction project value chain, and as such required a comprehensive ERP that would facilitate the seamless flow of information between different departments and help in coordinating resources and activities across the organisation.

CDC was also looking for a solution to optimize inventory costs, improve project controls and to have accurate data for decision making.

"Any disconnect can cause operational inefficiencies and affect our organisational performance. Hence it is critical for businesses to gain insight to effectively control and manage every component of the operations like finance, project accounting, budget control, procurement, human capital and inventory management, with powerful dashboards and reporting," said Peter Sholy, general manager, CDC

"Microsoft Dynamics is a comprehensive, end-to-end solution that highlights opportunities and insights to help contracting companies overcome challenges. At Levtech, we have a clear understanding of processes within project-based industries, and this has helped us leverage several unique features of Dynamics AX, such as the seamless interface with Microsoft Projects, powerful timesheet management, and deep automation of finance, supply chain and HR operations. We have also built critical, industry-specific features such as integration with an estimation tool like Candy CSS, integration with Primavera for resource scheduling and billing, subcontractor management with payment certificate process, budget control across the modules and project-related reports and dashboards. This will definitely help CDC maintain control over their projects and budgets, reduce costs, boost productivity and ultimately, achieve business growth," added Sekhar Ramarao, regional manager - Consulting & Presales, Levtech Consulting.

The project is expected to go live by July 2016.
