Introduced with AX 2009, the Global Address Book (GAB) allows for better management of your “parties” (Customers, Vendors, Employees etc…)
Essentially, the GAB lets you “link” parties together. So, for instance your company does business with the same customer from several AX company accounts, the customer needs to be created in each, but the records can be linked together through the GAB –This way, updating address or contact information will be synchronized for the customer all through your organization.
SAGlobal has recently introduced a new feature into our ProjAX (now known as Projects+) extensions for the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Service Industries ERP solution called Qualification Tracking. ProjAX (now known as Projects+) is SAG’s family of vertical extensions for Microsoft Dynamics AX that we’ve developed to further extend the out-of-the-box functionality to meet the unique needs of several vertical markets that we pursue.
This particular feature is targeted at the Architecture & Engineering (A&E) market, and it allows these firms to track their qualifications and experience related to certain work that they might be bidding on. Many business development proposals that A&E firms generate are what are known as a Qualification-based Proposals. In essence, these organizations submit proposals that answer key questions around what qualifications they have to perform the work that is required.
ERP happens at different times and for different reasons. However, what is always the same is that at some time every successful business reaches a point where a common business system becomes a talking point.
