Copper State Bolt and Nut sells over 125,000 fasteners, bolts, and nuts every month. By moving to the cloud-based application, they are able to keep up with the complexity and rapid growth of their data.
Following a period of impressive growth, Copper State Bolt & Nut Company quickly outgrew its previous enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. After evaluating its options, the family-owned and operated distributor and manufacturer chose to migrate all its ERP data to Microsoft Dynamics 365—a platform that could easily grow alongside the business. Now Copper State Bolt & Nut can ensure that it will never need to compromise on its commitment to delivering the high-quality fasteners and parts its customers need, when they need them.
The mobile-based future of ERP
Simplicity and scalability were huge drivers for Copper State’s move to Dynamics 365—but they weren’t the only ones. The company also recognized that this was a powerful opportunity to embrace the mobile-based future of ERP.
“If we don’t embrace the cloud and the mobile-based future of ERP, it would become a huge limiting factor to our growth and maybe even our existence,” says Spackman. “Without Dynamics 365, we wouldn’t be able to grow at the speed that we have to. And we wouldn’t be able to support our salespeople, who need to be out in front of our customers, or deliver products efficiently.”
The Copper State team uses the Dynamics 365 mobile and cloud-based capabilities to work in new, more flexible ways. Copper State’s team members are constantly on the move—visiting customers, delivering products, finding solutions—so being tied to a desk to get certain tasks done is an unnecessary time constraint.
Using Office 365 with Dynamics 365 is going to bring much higher levels of efficiency in communication, reduced time to focus, and increased throughput. What’s more, the company’s people and operational endpoints are now better connected than ever. Instead of having to build around the limitations of inadequate systems, Copper State is defining its future the way it always has—with a focus on being the best for its customers, vendors, and employees.
