XAPT Corporation and Altorfer Partner to Implement a Fully Integrated Solution, NAXT365 | Microsoft Dynamics for Equipment Dealers

[MIAMI, Fla. July 2nd, 2024] — XAPT Corporation, a leading provider of innovative solutions for heavy equipment dealers, is excited to announce a new partnership with Altorfer Cat, a top Caterpillar® equipment provider in Iowa, Missouri, Indiana and Illinois. In order to support its growth throughout the Midwest, Altorfer is embarking on a journey to modernize its business system by implementing a comprehensive digital transformation using NAXT365, a cloud-based solution powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365.

In alliance with DDPTech, renowned for delivering innovative data migration solutions, this collaboration entails their expertise in merging two DBS instances into one NAXT365 database. Our partnership with DDPTech spans a few years, during which they have demonstrated a track record in migrating data for both AX ’12 customers and DBS dealers.

Altorfer Cat, a regional leader in equipment for construction, agriculture, manufacturing, landscaping, mining, and the trades, lives by its core values of honesty, humility, safety, integrity, compassion, and teamwork. For the past 67 years, the Iowa-based company has driven its expansion further across Illinois and into Indiana, growing from three to 38 stores throughout the region. The dealership’s success also stems from its “can do” approach to solving customer challenges and seeing every project through to its completion.

Derek Altorfer, President of Altorfer, remarked on his excitement about the new partnership with XAPT, saying, “We’re excited to partner with XAPT and officially begin our transition to the NAXT365 business system, which will bring endless options to improve our processes and the level of service delivered to customers. The XAPT team brings a wealth of experience to this project and has already proven to be a reliable partner in the pre-work leading up to kickoff. Utilizing a world class product from Microsoft to support customers operating world class products from Caterpillar is a winning combination for all involved.”

Additionally, David Hixson, Director of ERP Development at Altorfer stated, “When looking to digitally transform our dealership with a new ERP system, we needed a bridge between Altorfer, Caterpillar, and Microsoft. We also needed a solution that seamlessly integrated and supported our large agricultural division. XAPT was a perfect fit to merge the requirements of Altorfer using the powerful software of Microsoft Dynamics 365, with NAXT365. With the power of Dynamics365 and the expertise of XAPT, the solution is highly scalable and flexible to individual needs. XAPT has been exceptional to work with through our first phases of the project.”

The power of NAXT365 comes from its architecture as a cloud-based solution that is specifically designed for equipment dealers. It provides a comprehensive solution that integrates data from sales, service, rental, purchasing, human resources, customer relations, finance, and more—all in one simple package that operates in real-time.

Altorfer has partnered with XAPT to take advantage of the deep integrations NAXT365 enables across a comprehensive range of Cat dealership operations. Altorfer’s team needs a digital hub connecting all facets of its operations. They also require an end-to-end solution that integrates multiple divisions within their organization. With NAXT365, Altorfer is able to combine multiple DBS databases into a single, unified system. This enables Altorfer to manage its dealership operations using a centralized cloud solution.

Sam Hampton, President of XAPT says, “On behalf of all XAPT employees, we are thrilled to partner with Altorfer in upgrading their dealer management system, DBS, to NAXT365 powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud. Our teams have collaborated closely, and after a comprehensive evaluation, we are excited that Altorfer has chosen NAXT as their business system of the future. What makes this project unique is the merging of two independent DBS databases into one unified system. With NAXT365, their dealership operations will be seamlessly managed under a single, cohesive cloud-based platform, offering all the benefits provided by NAXT and Microsoft Dynamics 365. The adoption of NAXT by another Cat DBS dealer further solidifies the value of the NAXT and Microsoft product suite within the Cat dealer community.”

NAXT365 provides equipment dealers around the world with a fully integrated Dealer Management Solution and Customer Relationship Management platform. Using Microsoft Dynamics 365’s cloud capabilities, NAXT365 gives dealerships real-time visibility across their operational landscapes. This empowers dealerships with cutting-edge business intelligence and enables them to manage customer relations, equipment and rentals, finances, accounting, HR, power systems, parts, service and their supply chain.
