Dean Machinery Co. last week announced its partnership with Tectura Corp., a worldwide provider of business consulting services, to implement NAXT, a solution developed on Microsoft Dynamics AX technology exclusively for Caterpillar dealers, which will allow the company to plan and manage business operations throughout its seven locations.
NAXT streamlines and consolidates a dealer’s computer system requirements on a single platform supporting all departments, including finance, accounting, human resources, equipment sales, equipment rental, parts (new, used and tear-down), service and power systems. The solution enables improved business process and business intelligence, integrates with Caterpillar systems, and is capable of interfacing with many leading OEMs and financial institutions.
“The NAXT solution represents another step in our quest to take our business to the next level,” said Lori Dean, president of Dean Machinery. “As is our newly opened headquarters facility, our new Microsoft solution will be an important tool for us to provide the best possible customer experience and will provide our entire Dean Team visibility to all of our customer data. We chose Tectura as our partner on this journey based on their deep understanding of our industry, coupled with their knowledge and delivery skills related to NAXT and Microsoft Dynamics AX.”
In addition to Dean Machinery, Tectura has implemented solutions at Caterpillar dealers in the United States, Europe and Southeast Asia.
Dean Machinery Co. is a Caterpillar dealership that serves northwestern Missouri and eastern Kansas. The company employs 320 people in 7 locations including its new headquarters campus in Kansas City, Mo.
