South American Caterpillar Dealer, H. Petersen, Goes Live on Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers in Six Months Utilizing XAPT’s Rapid Implementation Product SEAL.

Miami, Florida – Jan 20, 2016 — XAPT Corporation, a leading global Microsoft Dynamics provider, today announced the successful “Go-Live” of their ‘NAXT – Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers’ DMS solution at South America Caterpillar dealer H. Petersen.

H. Petersen, the exclusive Caterpillar dealer in Paraguay since 1931, made the decision to deploy the 160 user Dealer Management Solution (DMS), Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers, in all 4 of their dealerships to meet the growing demands of their business and customers.

In June of 2015, H. Petersen re-started their implementation deployment utilizing XAPT’s SEAL rapid implementation product and was able to go live on the fully integrated ‘end-to-end’ DMS solution in just six short months. SEAL incorporates world-class industry software that has been pre-configured, with proven best practices and predefined methodology. A winning combination—that benefits XAPT customers by minimizing project risks while speeding up the implementation and reducing project costs.

“We are pleased to partner with H. Petersen on this important initiative,” said Daniel Énekes, Chief Executive Officer, XAPT Corporation. “The H. Petersen partnership is a significant one for XAPT. Not only does it represent our first Caterpillar dealership live on our solution in Latin American, but also our first completed implementation utilizing our “drop-in” solution SEAL.” Énekes continues, “Many dealers will be surprised to hear that we were able to implement such a complex, end-to-end ERP solution in just six months. We were only able to achieve this because we started with a mature solution and implemented it using our proven methodology”.

Juan H. Petersen, President of H. Petersen, added, “Microsoft Dynamics AX is a proven tool tailored to our today’s needs, providing us with an efficient and integrated platform to run our entire business. It allows us to remain focused on giving the highest quality experience to our customers. We are proud to have partnered with XAPT to become pioneers in Latin America to launch this Software for Caterpillar Dealers. We are now prepared to move forward to a future of standardized processes with sustainable growth”.

Petersen is such a dynamic and forward-thinking organization; we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with them as their business solution partner.  We are very proud of what has been accomplished by both the H. Petersen and XAPT Teams. The joint teams commitment to bringing this project to completion both on-time and on-budget is a testament to their talents and dedication.”
