The Arbor team had challenges with some setups and configurations in Ax2012 dynamics solution. The solution had not gone live because of this. Arbor team wasn’t able to use the functionalities due to lack of knowledge and guidance. The production and inventory related project was about to get postponed or cancelled. With Prabhath coming into the mix with D365 upgrade team, he showed tremendous patience with the user community. He made sure the configurations and solution provided by him on inventory and production areas were not affecting any of the live application functionality nor impacting the upgrade project tasks done by Sonata team. His expertise on D365 application, constant follow ups with user community, abilities of demonstrating the features/solutions repeatedly, patience, conviction and client management skills resulted in Arbor team embracing the inventory and production implementation from a cancelled state. The solutions provided for Inventory & production requirements along with D365 Finance upgrade was successfully taken to go-live stage.
Ashwin coordinated with two vendors (SPS and Wells Fargo) for integration related developments and this was main challenge as in D365 architecture has changed with respect to Integrations.
Ashwin’s task was to analyse the existing user security configuration in AX 2012 and to work out the user roles and changes that were needed in D365. He has been very successful in configuring the security roles and users were happy with the result.
Ashwin’s value add was also in the manner in which he analysed the functionalities that are standard in D365 and were customized in AX 2012 and also convinced the client to use the standard features,since the customized and standard features would have conflicted.
