World Vision featured on Stage at Microsoft Convergence for Dynamics AX success
World Vision, the global humanitarian aid organization, was on stage today at the General Session at Microsoft Convergence at the George Brown Convention center in Houston, TX.
World Vision is a relief, development and advocacy organization that serves about 100 million people in nearly 100 countries worldwide and is dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to fight poverty and injustice. But despite wishing to serve every person who needs their services was unable to follow through on their goal due to an inefficient, error-prone supply chain management (SCM) system.
Sharon Boyle Director of Supply Chain at World Vision on the impact Dynamics AX had created in improving supply chain for donations and managing operations and ultimately improving lives.
Sharon Boyle, Director Supply Chain at World Vision, talked about how World Vision uses the Dynamics AX system to optimize the organization’s operations, and how this solution enables World Vision to keep doing their good work in a quicker, more efficient, and more transparent way.
Sharon recognized her team in Mongolia, Senegal where Dynamics AX has been deployed. Sharon also recognized Ignify's ability to deliver the solution cost-effectively with strong leadership.
But even though World Vision’s management and organization of supply requests with the adaptable applications of Microsoft Dynamics AX is in itself noteworthy, what is even more remarkable about their use of Microsoft Dynamics AX is that it is operating in places where even the most basic amenities – electricity, clean drinking water, etc. – are hard to come by. In places with severe limitations such that they cannot even get cell phone service, Microsoft Dynamics AX allows the World Vision team to continue running their supply chain smoothly, efficiently, and with total visibility, even when they are placed in the remotest reaches of the globe.
This was a very proud moment for all of us at Ignify to see our work create such a profound impact in the lives of thousands of people across the world.
