Miami, Florida – August 4, 2014 — XAPT Corporation, a leading provider of business application software serving the heavy equipment industry, announces the successful “Go-Live” of the Microsoft ERP-based dealer management solution, Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers, at Milton CAT.

Miami, Florida – August 4, 2014 — XAPT Corporation, a leading provider of business application software serving the heavy equipment industry, announces the successful “Go-Live” of the Microsoft ERP-based dealer management solution, Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers, at Milton CAT. Milton CAT went live on a comprehensive solution which integrates, in real-time, all areas of their business including Sales, Service, Equipment Rentals, CRMParts, Finance and Accounting, Purchasing and Power Systems. This go-live stands out as one of the first implementations of Microsoft Dynamics AX for Heavy Equipment Dealers on the AX 2012 platform.

Milton CAT, one of the largest Caterpillar dealers in North America, is headquartered in Milford MA, with 13 locations spanning MA, RI, VT, NH, ME and upstate New York. Milton CAT provides a wide range of equipment for use in general construction, road building, aggregates, forestry, power generation, and marine operations.

The go-live at Milton CAT is the culmination of the hard work, determination and dedication of the Milton CAT and XAPT teams.  Milton CAT is one of many dealers to turn to XAPT’s Microsoft Dynamics AX solution following the successful implementation at Kelly Tractor Co. back in 2010. “We need to acknowledge that Kelly Tractor Co., as the first CAT Dealer in the US to go-live on the solution, has helped paved the way for other CAT Dealers. The work that they accomplished with XAPT was instrumental in building a solid foundation that dealers can build upon,” said Chris Milton, Dealer Principal and President at Milton CAT.

XAPT continues to collaborate with Milton CAT and a number of CAT Dealerships around the globe.  This close collaboration will deliver a superior software application that enhances productivity and profitability in every area of a dealership for many years to come. Milton CAT went live with many OEM interfaces supporting the critical requirements of equipment manufacturers.  Additionally, Milton CAT is utilizing the robust Business Intelligence capabilities contained within the solution to gain a much deeper understanding of current business conditions and better insight towards future trends.

Christopher Kohart, Executive Vice President and CEO of Americas for XAPT Corporation, comments “The successful partnership with Milton CAT continues to confirm the strong commitment XAPT Corporation has to the equipment industry. Milton CAT now has a single source of information for asset management that will quickly add up to meaningful operational efficiencies. Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers is a very competitive solution that offers simplicity, enhanced connectivity between employees, vendors and customers, and a comprehensive all-in-one solution for dealers.” Kohart adds, “We are very proud of what has been accomplished by both the Milton CAT and XAPT Teams. We look forward to a long partnership with Milton CAT.”

“We were looking for a partner and solution that would help us to achieve a consistent, organization-wide view of performance, while streamlining operations and reducing operating costs, and XAPT’s solution Microsoft Dynamics AX for Equipment Dealers provided that for us,” said Rod Ford, Director of Information Technology at Milton CAT. “Now we have a common platform with more progressive capabilities and more visibility into our operations and overall performance, which allows our dealership to make better, more informed decisions faster and with more confidence.”

Powered by Microsoft Dynamics® AX, the Heavy Equipment Dealer Management software has been developed to integrate and enhance all facets of dealer operations.  It is a cohesive and seamless business suite with capabilities for general ledger, CRM, sales, receivables, parts, service, rental and power systems – providing increased visibility across the dealership, enhancing responsiveness and ultimately, providing a better experience for customers.
