Intelligent Business Applications ERP Reimagined
It’s time to move away from ERP’s legacy as a largely passive system of record and toward a reimagined and revitalized Enterprise System of the future: open, more forward looking, and acting as a unifying platform. In a changing business environment, competitiveness depends on insight and agility. Businesses that can identify shifting dynamics, and respond to them quickly and effectively, will succeed.That’s what enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) allows organizations to do
TRIDENT’S ERP IMPLEMENTATION SERVICES

Our job at Trident is not complete until solutions are fully implemented, including skills and knowledge transfer. You can grow at your own pace through the choice and flexibility of the cloud, on-premise, or hybrid deployments — depending on your business and security requirements.

ERP System Diagnostic || Value Discovery Services
Trident’s ERP Diagnostic or Value Discovery Services help companies manage ERP risks during system selection and implementation, as well as improve, simplify and automate security and controls around the ERP landscape. Trident’s ERP experts blend technology, business process, audit, and risk management skills to deliver efficient solutions across functional areas and ERP platforms.
High Level Analysis : Our Experts meet with the management group to understand the severity and nature of the existing problems. The problems could be related to the system, business process, infrastructure, training, or lack of motivation. They also determine the gap between desired and current Key Performance Indicators to assess the need for change.
Business Process Review : Business Process Consultants document the business process steps, problems, the type of problem, impact of the problems and the requirements and prepare process maps. The requirements are based on the strengths of the existing system and the functionality that could potentially fix the problems. The process maps provide a simple and effective way to visualize the business process flow.
Requirements Analysis : Business Process Consultants create a requirements document that contains the key and unique requirements. They strive to be clear, unambiguous and don’t waste time with basic functionality. They also supplement the needs you’ve already identified with our own comprehensive industry-specific checklists. Each requirement is confirmed and prioritized.
The audit and value discovery function can help significantly reduce these risks by playing a role that is educational, consultative or audit in nature, and by bringing deep independent subject-matter expertise to the most common risk areas.
Trident’s Implementation for Microsoft Dynamics NAV / AX & Dynamics 365
At Trident Information Systems, all of our projects are built using proven methodologies to ensure successful project delivery. Our processes have evolved with our experience to ensure the requirements gathering and delivery phases are as fast as possible, while making sure there are no surprises later in the project. Making sure all of our work is of good quality and following industry standards is at the core of everything we do.
Depending on the nature of your project, eCommerce or ERP, we will follow the most suitable approach to ensure a smooth and successful delivery. For our eCommerce projects we can either adopt a Waterfall, Agile or Scrum approach, whereas for our ERP implementations, we use Sure Step.
But regardless of the exact methodology, there are always a number of underlying steps and activities that we focus on getting right first time:
Business Requirements Analysis: This is the most important phase, during which your business requirements are established and documented during workshops, and the shape of the solution is agreed.
Technical Analysis: We produce a technical integration document and establish firm estimates for performing technical tasks. We also produce standard project control documents, such as project plans, risk and issue registers at this stage.
Development Initiation: We then begin producing themes, templates and blue-prints for your solution. This is then tested by you, so you can identify any gaps or issues, leading to a further iteration. This can happen while technical development continues, to ensure you get early visibility of your solution.
Build Step: Custom code is developed, interfaces to third party systems set-up, and third party components tested and plugged in. We will also produce training guides and documentation for you.
User Acceptance Testing: You have the opportunity to identify any bugs, usability issues or potential changes before releasing the site.
Go-Live: Your system is moved from development to operational environment with a detailed implementation plan being prepared and executed. We will now do a full handover to the support team for your ongoing systems support.

- Over 60% had training from an AX perspective rather than from a business process perspective

Save time, reduce errors and pave the way for business growth with intelligent end-to-end integration from Trident Information Systems
Connecting your systems often produces enormous value and provides a significant return on investment. But any integration requirements need to be considered at the start of the project and must be carefully planned and delivered.
Benefits of Integration

As part of our project methodology, we help you discover an integration approach that fits your requirements and then work with you, or your third-party supplier, to deliver a successful integration. Our team has experience of all manner of integration methodologies, ranging from simple batch integration with CSV, through to real-time using point to point, stored procedures, SOAP XML web services, APIs and more.

Dedicated Performance Services to Optimise Your Core IT Systems
Trident has extensive experience providing system performance optimisation, support, and monitoring of SQL Server and Microsoft Dynamics® environments to a range of customers including some of the largest and most complex implementations of Dynamics 365, AX, NAV, and CRM.
We offer a deep knowledge of diagnostics, best practices, benchmarks, code optimization, and database performance tuning techniques. A System Performance Health Check is often where our engagement begins. This service can be used to identify performance and application risks, and ensure compliance with industry best practices, as well as detecting problems before they arise and adversely affect your business.
Pre go-live Load Testing : A pre go-live load test allows problems to be identified and resolved before bringing your system online and potentially adversely affecting your business.
Load Testing and Benchmarking : The Load Testing program puts your system through its paces and stresses it to identify bottle necks. We simulate higher than expected loads to test the limits and to gauge the current headroom for growth and expansion.
System Monitoring and Servicing : With continuous monitoring and assessment of your ERP, CRM, and/or SQL Server environment(s), our team can identify and resolve issues before they cause system degradation or downtime.
Performance Diagnostics, Analysis & Tuning : With the database lying at the heart of any complex system, the state of your SQL Server environment can have a large impact on the performance of your applications as a whole. We often see a significant improvement in application responsiveness and general user experience after we have optimized the database configuration, storage structures, indexes, maintenance plans, and the occasional SQL code.
Code Analysis and Optimization : Our team are expert Microsoft developers armed with state of the art, custom built, code analysers enabling the quick identification of code inefficiencies. With significant experience with Best Practices and the AX Customization Analysis Tool (CAT), Trident can recommend and apply code changes for compliance with Microsoft and industry standards.
