Microsoft Dynamics GP for ManufacturingNew Case Study: Armanino Helps Progressive Components, Innovator in the Production Tooling Industry, Move Into the Cloud with Microsoft Dynamics GP

A leader the production tooling industry, privately-owned Progressive Components strives to remain cutting edge in both its products and its business environment. Whether it’s electrical switches, medical devices, automotive bumpers, or some other injection-molded product or element, chances are that Progressive Components furnished parts for the mold. With help from Armanino, the manufacturer upgraded and migrated its enterprise resource planning tool, Microsoft Dynamics GP, to the cloud in Microsoft Azure.

The manufacturer has been relying on Microsoft Dynamics GP—an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system—since the 1990s, when the software was first created as Great Plains software. With a small IT staff, Progressive Components prefers to take advantage of external IT services to help it complete larger projects efficiently and effectively. “The problem was that every time we had a project we needed help with, the value-added reseller we were working with would come back with a much larger scope—and price tag—than required,” says Clemenson. “Finally, a trusted colleague of mine referred me to Armanino.

With help from Armanino, Progressive Components stays up-to-date and well prepared to take advantage of the latest features and functionality available in Dynamics GP. “We try to stay cutting edge,” says Clemenson. “Now we’re on one platform, in the cloud.” With its latest project and move to the cloud, the company also gains greater business continuity in the event of unexpected issue at its headquarters. “If there’s a disaster of some sort or really anything that happens that prevents us from using our current physical location, we can hand out new laptops and be ready to continue serving our customers,” says Clemenson.
