Acora wins new business software project with OATS Ltd

OATS Ltd, part of the Haynes Publishing Group, are the leading providers of information and productivity solutions for the lubricants sector of the oil industry globally

Deciding that Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central was the preferred solution, Acora was chosen after a competitive tender process.

The Acora team were selected because of our open and consultative approach, technical credibility, unique implementation methodology and long-standing Microsoft Gold partnership.

“Acora’s in-depth knowledge and implementation methodology impressed us, as well as their ability to help us shape our new solution as our working relationship progresses. Ultimately, we wanted an experienced partner who had the technical ability to integrate systems and streamline business processes.” Mike Skypala, Managing Director, OATS Ltd

OATS Ltd had been using a range of software to run their business, before deciding a more unified system was required. Other companies in Haynes Publishing Group are already using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, so a decision was made to move to Business Central – the solely Cloud based version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

The business was keen to consolidate systems, whilst also reducing complexity in their processes and were looking to deploy as much of the standard functionality within Dynamics Business Central as possible.

“I’m delighted that OATS decided to work with Acora, and I’m excited to start on this project with them. I think we can help to reduce the time spent on everyday business tasks and data upkeep, whilst also making use of the business transparency a consolidated approach to software creates.” Paul Renucci, CSO, Acora.
