Packaging Concepts & Design Selects Microsoft Dynamics AX for Auto from First Tech Direct: Royal Oak-based First Tech Direct, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner focused on helping companies manage their business processes more effectively and efficiently, announced that Packaging Concepts & Design has selected Microsoft Dynamics AX for Auto to replace its existing enterprise resource planning system. PC&D, a Troy-based manufacturer that produces packaging materials for the automotive industry, will use Microsoft Dynamics AX for Auto to gain better visibility into their inventory, production planning and forecasting across all operational levels to help them grow. Dynamics AX for Auto provides a more flexible, powerful, and responsive production system that will help PC&D stay more competitive and reduce time-to-market. Although their solution was stable, it was outdated, and PC&D needed to automate internal communications between engineering, sales orders, purchase orders and production. They turned to First Tech Direct to provide Dynamics AX for Auto because of their deep industry expertise in the automotive manufacturing market to help them limit risks and lower total cost of compliance.
