m-hance migrates Bolero International’s on-premise ERP solution to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
m-hance, a leading Microsoft Gold Partner, was selected by Bolero International to migrate its ERP solution from Dynamics GP to Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Bolero International is an organisation that has strong trading, finance, and maritime expertise. It has awarding winning technology and legal frameworks that deliver digital solutions across the entire supply chain. Its goal is to digitise trade and seamlessly connect communities. It has built a solid reputation; becoming a market leader in its field and a driving force for global trade.
Bolero International had been using an on-premise version of Dynamics GP. The company started to find challenges while using this older version of Dynamics GP and needed a more modern version that was better suited to its needs and was able to fulfil the organisation’s future requirements. As m-hance was already a reliable supplier for Bolero International, it was an easy decision for the team to approach the software solutions provider for a discussion on transitioning its ERP system. After in-depth conversations, the decision was made to upgrade Bolero to the new ERP cloud-based solution from Microsoft; Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Gary Baker, Operations Director at m-hance said: “We were delighted when Bolero International approached us to conduct this project. They had been very happy with our services over the years and thought highly of the working relationship that we had built with them. When needing to appoint an organisation to help them move forward, they were confident with the decision to move ahead with us. They had the reassurance that we had the right staff and consultants, with the right skills and knowledge to make this project successful. We worked closely with the team to understand their needs which a modern, cloud-based solution could provide, with bespoke reports for functional currency and exchange rates, which would give them accurate figures. We provided them with a solution that will benefit them going forward.”
The project was very successful for all parties involved. Bolero International was an early adopter of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and although this presented some minor challenges, it also went hand in hand with a large number of benefits. Bolero’s global trading requirements necessitated a small amount of tailoring to accommodate differing currency reporting requirements. This included generating bespoke reports for the use of Making Tax Digital for VAT as well as adjusting invoices and templates to match currencies which m-hance was able to help with. One major benefit that the organisation will realise from adopting this new ERP system is the ability to work remotely utilising this internal system. Bolero is also enjoying key benefits from the SaaS-based Dynamic 365 Business Central solution such as simplifying requirements around the need for regular back-ups and manual updates with automatic product updates available automatically from Microsoft every 6 months as part of the service.
Christopher Broster at Bolero International states: “We are extremely pleased that we are now live on an ERP system that we can use to help us evolve. We encountered some challenges, particularly around foreign currency, but m-hance worked hard to find acceptable solutions to the challenges. We are now able to maximise the full potential of this modern-day system. Our previous solution no longer met the needs of our business. We needed a solution that was more flexible, up to date and could grow with our business. A cloud-based system like Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central met our requirements and was tailored to meet our needs to further improve the way we operate. m-hance ran the project in an efficient way and provided a high level of attention and support. This was both during the implementation and after go-live. We look forward to the future and continuing our working relationship with the team”
