Securitas is a world-leading provider of bespoke security solutions with offices located worldwide. Securitas Ireland were looking to move away from their legacy on-premise accountancy package and migrate their systems to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud Managed Service offered by Sysco. Microsoft Dynamics 365 allows Securitas Branch Managers to increase visibility of their supply chain, control the purchasing processes and maximise revenue opportunities – remotely and on any device.
Sysco’s Azure Managed Service practice are responsible for supporting the entire solution in the Cloud.
Shane Lambert, Financial Controller of Securitas Ireland commented, “The Microsoft Dynamics 365 system has made Securitas more efficient and effective in how we work. The great thing about Dynamics 365 is that it can be tailored to your business needs and Sysco have been great in delivering exactly what we needed from day one. We have already seen improvements in our cashflow and we will see further improvements down the line in our controls and processes.”
Niall Morgan, Microsoft Dynamics ERP Commercial Lead at Sysco Software Solutions added, “Securitas Ireland have seen huge efficiencies in all areas of their month end processing, including the emailing of customer documents and the electronic payment of vendor payments”.
Niall continued, “In addition, Securitas have invested in the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform with Sysco’s own Azure Managed Service team taking responsibility for the hosting, support, uptime and backup of their Microsoft Dynamics 365 system and providing a ‘one stop shop’ service”.
Shane Lambert continued, “Sysco have been great to work with from the start, the support we receive from the guys is second to none. The project went smoothly and that was down to their knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the experience they have gained in our industry.”
Karl Donnelly, Microsoft Azure Cloud Lead at Sysco Software Solutions added, “Securitas are now Live on Sysco’s Microsoft Dynamics 365 Azure Managed Service Infrastructure. The migration to the cloud and the project itself was very smooth one with Securitas already making use of the scalability and high availability of features which means zero downtime whilst production servers are being updated. This empowers Securitas to concentrate on what matters most – their business.”
Additional benefits will be seen later in the year when Securitas integrate their Service Contracts in Microsoft Dynamics 365 with their industry specific chosen workforce management solution.
