Sirio Retail Operations reduces manual processes with Dynamics NAV
Microsoft Dynamics NAV deal valued at €75,000
Dublin, Ireland, 6 February 2017 — Simply Dynamics, Microsoft Dynamics ERP partner of the year for Ireland, announces that its customer, Sirio Retail Operations, is now live using Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Sirio Retail Operations is a forecourt retail business which currently operates 16 forecourts nationwide with plans to expand this network.
“We really needed a new ERP system to cut down on manual processes and duplication,” said Garrett Lenihan, IT Manager, Sirio. “We did our homework and Microsoft Dynamics NAV from Simply Dynamics was the answer. Simply Dynamics’ retail and Dynamics NAV customisation experience meant that they could easily integrate with our POS system, Retail Solutions, via web services. Now, information from across the organisation is all in the one place and we have real-time information at our fingertips.”
Sirio needed a more robust system with higher functionality than the legacy system could cope with in order to efficiently manage expansion plans. The team also wanted to cut down on a lot of tedious and time consuming manual processes and reduce duplication of effort. Simply Dynamics implemented Dynamics NAV, integrated with Office 365. Information from the various locations is synchronised with head office in Naas, Co Kildare in real time.
To further cut down on the production of manual reports, Simply Dynamics automated the monthly ROM (Return of Oil Movements) to the Irish Revenue and Customs department. An XML report is uploaded from Dynamics NAV to Irish Revenue monthly as required by law.
Simply Dynamics also integrated Sirio’s Dynamics NAV ERP system with multiple fuel card types. This means that fuel card transaction information is fed directly into Dynamics NAV and corporate statements are routinely generated and issued.
“Sirio currently operates 16 forecourts but is expanding rapidly,” said Dave Treanor, Director, Simply Dynamics. “Improved data accuracy, automation of manual reports and less duplication are some of big benefits Sirio has received as a result of the new ERP system. Additionally, they have a system that will grow as the company expands.”
