Seattle, WA – January 12, 2017
SAGlobal, the leading international provider of Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP and CRM solutions and services for project-driven organizations, today announced that Chemonics International has selected Microsoft Dynamics 365 as their new global business applications platform. SAGlobal and Chemonics are now working to replace several core business systems with Microsoft’s next generation suite of intelligent cloud-based business applications.
Headquartered in Washington D.C. and with over 70 field offices located around the world, Chemonics is an international development company known for delivering results in even the most complex social and political environments in the world. With over 4,000 specialists, and experience working in over 150 countries around the world, Chemonics manages practices ranging from agricultural and private sector development, to health and education, to environment and natural resource sustainability. The company delivers life-saving medicines to prevent and treat malaria and HIV/AIDS to the most remote villages and strengthens health systems around the world. Chemonics prides itself on its proven management systems and best practices, and has gained a reputation as one of the world’s leading partners in international development.
“Chemonics’ mission is to promote meaningful change around the world to help people live healthier, more productive, and more independent lives,” explains Eric Reading, Executive Vice President for Chemonics. “This mission leads our organization into challenging environments, and requires us to manage highly complex projects all around the world. Our strategic goal is to focus on our mission instead of having to expend unnecessary resources and effort resulting from multiple systems, redundant data entry and manual management of processes. One of the major initiatives of this goal to drive improved efficiencies and visibility across our global business was to identify an integrated platform that would most effectively allow Chemonics to affect this change. We evaluated many of the industry’s leading application platforms and vendors, and ultimately selected Microsoft Dynamics 365 based on Microsoft’s strong commitment to our strategic partnership, and our belief that the solution was flexible enough to handle our unique, and often complex, needs. We chose SAGlobal as our trusted consulting partner based on their global deployment experience, focus on project-based organizations, and their ability to understand even our most complex business requirements.”
Microsoft Dynamics 365 is Microsoft’s next generation suite of intelligent cloud-based business applications. Formerly known as Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP and Dynamics CRM, the newly branded Dynamics 365 offers a suite of best-in-class business applications for sales, marketing, financials, operations, human capital management, and Project service automation. Microsoft Dynamics 365 natively runs on Microsoft’s industry-leading Azure cloud, and heavily leverages other market-leading cloud solutions from Microsoft, such as Office 365, PowerBI, and Cortana Intelligence, to drive productivity and intelligence throughout a client’s organization.
Chemonics will be implementing Dynamics 365 to manage their core business operations, both at their headquarters and their field offices worldwide. Dynamics 365 will be used to manage key processes such as: business development, finance, project management and accounting, procurement, grant management, and human capital management. Chemonics will also be leveraging a purpose-built Dynamics 365 solution for government contractors that provides a comprehensive set of capabilities for managing government contracts and compliance requirements.
“We’re very excited to welcome Chemonics to the SAGlobal and Microsoft Dynamics 365 family”, explained Oli Gunnarsson, CEO for SAGlobal’s US operations. “Chemonics is a progressive organization with a fantastic reputation around the world. SAGlobal is excited to be involved with an organization delivering such meaningful work, and look forward to our long-term partnership and helping Chemonics transform their business through the implementation of our Microsoft Dynamics 365 solution.”
