The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) develops and proves innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in an agile, low risk environment. They partner with industry, academia and other institutions to deliver bespoke manufacturing system solutions for customers.
The MTC operate some of the most advanced manufacturing equipment in the world and employ a team of highly skilled engineers, many of whom are the leading experts in their field.
The MTC approached Seaton Partners in 2014 when the organisation was only around 75 employees. They already had an AX2012R2 deployment, but wanted to partner together to transition the solution to the next level, and to ensure it was fit for purpose as they embarked on rapid expansion.
As a projects focused business, the core of the solution sits around contract and budget management of research and development projects. Efficient timesheet capture and approval was also key.
During our working partnership, the MTC have expanded to over 450 users of Dynamics AX. We also collaborated on business improvement programs to drive best practice and efficiency in the business systems, such as a re-work of the whole procurement to pay process to comply with the new demands of a larger business with new governance standards.
Seaton Partners are very proud that the MTC have grown their own internal highly skilled team to support the business systems. With Seaton Partners support, this team have recently completed a full R3 upgrade, and we now look forward to the next phase of the business and systems maturing.
