Business Challenge

When we started the project, our client being one of the largest oil & gas companies in the globe with Dynamics NAV implementations across 47+ countries, 9 regions, spanning from version 4.0 to 2009, were facing a lot of challenges where our team brought in our years’ of experience and subject matter expertise to help them have streamlined business processes and a smooth digital transformation journey. Some of the challenges were:

  • Integration with eAviation Business
  • Streamlining of the Support function
  • Infra Upgrades

Solution

OnActuate deployed a team of experienced ERP and technology consultants to address the challenges and brought the project to a point where the overall release process is streamlined, Deliveries are robust and turnaround time is reduced many folds by using DevOps and best practices for Quality and release management.
