Press	
  Release	
  
November	
  2012	
  
	
  
Azzure	
  Fills	
  J&S	
  Davis’	
  Enterprise	
  Resource	
  Planning	
  Gap	
  

Founded	
  in	
  1908,	
  wholesale	
  dental	
  distributor,	
  J&S	
  Davis,	
  has	
  been	
  bought	
  back	
  under	
  
family	
  ownership	
  and	
  in	
  the	
  transition,	
  implemented	
  Azzure’s	
  Microsoft	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  
ERP	
  software	
  solution	
  to	
  simplify	
  distribution,	
  apply	
  electronic	
  ordering	
  and	
  improve	
  
business	
  processes.	
  

Daniel	
  Davis,	
  great	
  nephew	
  and	
  grandson	
  of	
  founders,	
  Joe	
  and	
  Solomon,	
  has	
  become	
  the	
  
third-­‐generation	
  owner	
  of	
  J&S	
  Davis	
  Limited,	
  having	
  purchased	
  the	
  company	
  from	
  Finnish	
  
dental	
  equipment	
  provider,	
  the	
  Planmeca	
  Group.	
  With	
  the	
  move,	
  J&S	
  Davis	
  has	
  rolled	
  out	
  a	
  
new	
  software	
  solution	
  from	
  ERP	
  providers,	
  Azzure,	
  to	
  seamlessly	
  migrate	
  the	
  business	
  from	
  
its	
  previous	
  owners	
  and	
  manage	
  operations.	
  

Davis,	
  who	
  is	
  Immediate	
  Past	
  President	
  of	
  the	
  British	
  Dental	
  Health	
  Foundation,	
  explains	
  
why	
  J&S	
  Davis	
  needed	
  to	
  implement	
  a	
  new	
  system	
  –	
  and	
  quickly.	
  “The	
  previous	
  owners’	
  ERP	
  
system	
  was	
  much	
  bigger	
  than	
  we	
  needed;	
  we	
  had	
  to	
  adopt	
  some	
  complicated	
  procedures	
  to	
  
work	
  around	
  its	
  intricaciesk.”	
  

IT	
  software	
  providers,	
  Azzure,	
  gave	
  J&S	
  Davis	
  the	
  answer,	
  implementing	
  Microsoft	
  Dynamics	
  
NAV	
  across	
  the	
  organisation	
  in	
  just	
  under	
  four	
  months	
  from	
  start	
  to	
  finish.	
  “I	
  looked	
  at	
  six	
  or	
  
so	
  solutions,	
  and	
  spoke	
  to	
  three	
  of	
  them	
  in	
  detail	
  about	
  cost	
  and	
  time	
  to	
  implement.	
  
Azzure’s	
  honesty	
  and	
  business	
  ethic	
  appealed	
  to	
  me	
  and	
  led	
  us	
  to	
  partner	
  with	
  them,”	
  
explains	
  Davis.	
  

With	
  interactive,	
  electronic	
  ordering,	
  allowing	
  J&S	
  Davis	
  to	
  offer	
  customers	
  a	
  more	
  
responsive	
  service,	
  and	
  the	
  capability	
  in	
  place	
  to	
  better	
  manage	
  and	
  report	
  on	
  the	
  business,	
  
Davis’	
  focus	
  is	
  now	
  on	
  growing	
  the	
  business.	
  “We’ve	
  gone	
  live	
  with	
  ten	
  seats	
  straight	
  away	
  
and	
  when	
  we	
  move	
  to	
  new	
  premises	
  in	
  the	
  New	
  Year,	
  that	
  will	
  increase.	
  We’ll	
  implement	
  
the	
  system’s	
  CRM	
  functionality	
  too,	
  which	
  will	
  allow	
  our	
  sales	
  team	
  to	
  deliver	
  the	
  same	
  
innovative	
  customer	
  service	
  the	
  company	
  was	
  founded	
  on,”	
  he	
  concludes.
