Press	
  Release	
  
April	
  2013	
  
	
  
Access2	
  unlocks	
  new	
  capability	
  with	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  
	
  
Leading	
  masterkeyed	
  cylinder	
  lock	
  provider,	
  Access2	
  has	
  upgraded	
  its	
  obsolete	
  accounting	
  and	
  
ERP	
  system	
  to	
  a	
  brand	
  new	
  Microsoft	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  solution,	
  supplied	
  by	
  end-­‐to-­‐end	
  IT	
  specialist,	
  
Azzure	
  IT.	
  It	
  is	
  making	
  massive	
  efficiency	
  gains	
  as	
  a	
  result.	
  
	
  
The	
  new	
  solution,	
  which	
  has	
  been	
  rolled	
  out	
  across	
  the	
  business	
  to	
  cover	
  sales,	
  purchasing,	
  stock	
  
control,	
  warehousing,	
  assembly	
  and	
  financial	
  management,	
  is	
  helping	
  Access2	
  to	
  streamline	
  manual	
  
and	
  time	
  consuming	
  processes.	
  It	
  is	
  also	
  automating	
  stock	
  control	
  processes	
  and	
  consequently	
  
driving	
  significant	
  efficiency	
  improvements.	
  

Access2	
  provides	
  access	
  control,	
  security	
  systems	
  and	
  doors	
  to	
  a	
  wide	
  range	
  of	
  organisations	
  across	
  
the	
  UK	
  and	
  worldwide.	
  The	
  company	
  took	
  the	
  decision	
  to	
  upgrade	
  its	
  system	
  after	
  the	
  end-­‐of-­‐life	
  of	
  
its	
  current	
  Sage	
  100	
  system	
  was	
  announced.	
  “It	
  was	
  the	
  perfect	
  opportunity	
  to	
  make	
  the	
  move,”	
  
says	
  Brian	
  Nesbitt,	
  Finance	
  Director	
  at	
  Access2.	
  “A	
  key	
  drawback	
  of	
  the	
  current	
  system	
  was	
  that	
  we	
  
were	
  unable	
  to	
  electronically	
  track	
  our	
  stock	
  control	
  and	
  due	
  to	
  the	
  complex	
  nature	
  of	
  the	
  products	
  
we	
  manufacture,	
  this	
  was	
  causing	
  serious	
  inefficiencies,	
  particularly	
  in	
  our	
  stock	
  levels.”	
  

Having	
  considered	
  upgrading	
  to	
  Sage	
  200,	
  Access2	
  chose	
  to	
  move	
  to	
  Microsoft	
  Dynamics	
  NAV	
  and	
  
Azzure	
  IT,	
  not	
  only	
  because	
  the	
  new	
  solution	
  would	
  complement	
  its	
  current	
  Dynamics	
  CRM	
  system,	
  
but	
  because	
  of	
  Azzure’s	
  knowledge	
  and	
  professionalism.	
  “They	
  invested	
  a	
  lot	
  of	
  time	
  in	
  
understanding	
  our	
  business	
  and	
  the	
  different	
  needs	
  of	
  the	
  varying	
  departments.	
  And	
  they	
  have	
  
successfully	
  aligned	
  the	
  software	
  to	
  our	
  specific	
  requirements	
  –	
  it’s	
  fantastic!”	
  

Already	
  a	
  UK	
  market	
  leader,	
  Access2	
  is	
  eager	
  to	
  keep	
  expanding.	
  “It	
  is	
  important	
  we	
  have	
  the	
  right	
  IT	
  
infrastructure	
  in	
  place	
  that	
  is	
  capable	
  of	
  meeting	
  the	
  needs	
  of	
  our	
  business	
  today	
  and	
  as	
  we	
  
continue	
  to	
  grow,”	
  explains	
  Nesbitt.	
  “Based	
  on	
  our	
  experience	
  of	
  working	
  with	
  Azzure,	
  I’m	
  confident	
  
we	
  now	
  have	
  the	
  right	
  solution	
  for	
  our	
  business.”
