On 1 st September, 2015, KPMG Australia announced its acquisition of Hands-on Systems and became a Gold competency partner for Microsoft Dynamics in Australia. KPMG will provide ERP (enterprise resource planning) and CRM solutions. They will be rolling out the latter to their own 5,000 employees. Fenwick Software is delighted to welcome KPMG into the Microsoft Dynamics fold, and wishes it success.

KPMG’s entry into the Microsoft Dynamics business acknowledges the quality of this suite of products.

Fenwick Software first began working with Microsoft Dynamics NAV in 1998, five years before it was acquired by Microsoft. It was then known as Navision. Over the years it has become the dominant software package providing ERP solutions for the SME marketplace. There are now over 100,000 companies using the product internationally including over 1,000 in Australia.

Built in Denmark, Microsoft Dynamics NAV has always reflected the high-quality of European engineering. Interestingly, Microsoft kept the development team in Copenhagen where the software is still maintained and developed. Since acquiring the product in 2003, Microsoft has modernised its architecture and integrated it with their Microsoft Office and Dynamics CRM products.Benefiting from its seventeen years’ of experience implementing NAV for the Australian market, Fenwick has developed a suite of Add-on products, marketed as Fenwick Gold, which further enhances the functionality of the software.

Fenwick Software’s Dynamics NAV customer base continues to grow as more and more companies recognise the power and flexibility of this easy–to-use ERP system. Amongst its seventy-plus customers, Fenwick has companies that range in turnover from ten million to five hundred million, including such well-known names as toxfree, Alex Fraser, SteriHealth, Turi Foods (La Ionica), Royal Canin, Peak Adventure Travel, FTA Food Solutions, Keep Cup, and Hazeldene’s Chicken Farms. With KPMG now selling and supporting Microsoft Dynamics, the demand for this excellent suite of products can only continue to increase. We are actively recruiting talented and experienced consultants in the anticipation of an increased demand for our services.
