Surmac CAT Selects NAXT to Build the Dealership of the Future

MIAMI, Fla., January 30, 2019 – XAPT Corporation, the developer of NAXT – Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Equipment Dealers and Surmac CAT, official authorized CAT dealer in Suriname, have signed a contract to implement NAXT, a fully integrated Dealer Management Solution on the Microsoft Dynamics platform.

Surmac is one of 14 subsidiary companies of C. Kersten & Co. N.V., a company that has been active in Suriname for 250 years. With operations in Suriname and French Guiana, Surmac has always played an important role as supplier of construction and mining equipment for major projects in Suriname. The company offers support for its customers in equipment management and rental services, including equipment selection, equipment use, procurement and financing, maintenance management and the replacement of technically intricate systems.

In the last few years Surmac has grown rapidly and decided to replace its current ERP system and implement a new ERP/DMS to improve process efficiency and to empower its team to satisfy its customers’ increasingly complex requirements.

“We selected NAXT because XAPT could credibly demonstrate that the system can be configured for Caterpillar dealers, is recommended by Caterpillar, and has been used by 28 dealers worldwide. In NAXT all of the best-practice processes of Caterpillar dealers are preprogrammed and therefore ready to use. I believe NAXT will have a major impact on our organization by improving our processes, increasing our sales volume, and empowering our team to make the right decision based on relevant data even working in the field” – said Leo Vreeburg, Dealer Principal / President Director of Surmac.

Surmac, besides improving and optimizing its processes, will also be able to interface directly with CAT, enable a mobile workforce with mobile applications, lower its outstanding receivables and improve inventory turnover.

“We are proud to welcome Surmac joining the ever expanding family of CAT dealers using NAXT. We are eager to bring this project to fruition and to begin a long-lasting partnership with the Surmac team. NAXT comes with 600 built-in equipment dealer-specific processes out of the box, and in conjunction with our team members’ industry knowledge, will ensure a short implementation time and a rapid return on this investment.” – said Panos Gikas, Chief Operating Officer of XAPT Corp.

NAXT integrates all departments on one platform from Finance, Parts, Sales, Rental, Service, Power Systems, Purchasing, Supply Chain, HR and Customer Portal providing real time data on all aspects of the business.
