Celebrating 60 years as a CAT dealer, Thompson Tractor now employs 1,250 people and provides a wide variety of equipment products and services to various industries like forestry, general construction, government, landscaping and mining. In reaction to the growing demands of their business and customers the company decided to digitally transform all areas of their business and deploy a solution which will ensure that they grow and succeed on Microsoft’s business platform.

The smooth cooperation between the two companies will continue by supporting, upgrading, and enhancing the system with additional functionality.

With NAXT, Thompson Tractor deployed a system with more than 700 built-in equipment dealer specific processes.  This baseline of industry practices allowed Thompson the choice to either implement or enhance a standardized process, thus significantly reducing project risks and costs.

Matt Serotsky, ERP Project Manager at Thompson Tractor Company, commented “All of the hard work from the dealers that preceded Thompson on XAPT’s NAXT platform truly made a huge difference. Those efforts led to the development of XAPT’s pre-configured solution which allowed our project to finish on budget and within the agreed timeframe. A big thanks to all those involved from XAPT and Thompson’s extended ERP Team throughout the dealership”.

We are pleased to partner with Thompson Tractor on this important initiative; working with the Thompson team has been a great experience. Thompson Tractor go-live was yet another non-event go-live that was performed with precision by the Thompson Tractor team and XAPT” – said Chris Wittusen, VP Professional Service at XAPT Corporation.
