"3 years ago, it became apparent that our existing IS was too limited to absorb our development and we decided to replace it. Since 2009, our choice has been the ADAX ERP Solution (Advanced Distribution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations), which we implemented in all areas (purchasing, sales, inventory management, finance and soon CRM), with the exception of manufacturing. "

"We have 4,000 account customers as well as 2,000 walk in customers. And that doesn’t include orders placed through more traditional methods such as fax or phone! Sales are heading increasingly towards multiple delivery channels. In regards to retail counter sales (our main distribution channel), TVH Consulting met our need for optimum efficiency, i.e. serving customers quickly while following corporate rules. The results were immediate. Our salespeople are selling even more! We are very satisfied with ADAX. It is a complete ERP solution with excellent integration and delivers results to our evolving industry challenges. With ADAX, we are able to forecast the future with certainty."
