MRO Capabilities for Dynamics Finance & Supply Chain
Clients First developed an MRO tracking module in Dynamics AX 2009 to meet the needs of Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) firms. The ProMRO module offered pre-defined project phases that enable quick job quoting. The ProMRO module worked with and like the native Microsoft Dynamics AX application for seamless integration. The benefits realized included improved efficiency, standardization, cost savings and predictability across multiple departments. Now the newest release of Dynamics AX is Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain which now includes many features that the aviation or heavy equipment MRO needs to run a productive and profitable shop.
