Advanced Project Management

AXtension® Planning & Control

by AXTENSION

Solution Overview

Planning is not about moving tasks in time. It’s about your organisation to act as a team. Each change influences cashflow. Each risk and opportunity impact margin. The availability of valuable knowledge and skills are required at the right time and at the right place. Your supply chain needs to act within the given timelines and communicate pro-actively. Decentralisation of invaluable information in people’s minds and systems is a liability that comes with huge overhead expenses. AXtension® offers full project management capabilities with AXtension® Planning & Control as part of your Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance & Supply Chain Management environment to guarantee a single point of truth that influences your entire organisation. There are three industry flavours of the solution: for Architecture, Engineering & Construction, Professional Services, and Manufacturing.
