When evaluating System Integrators in the AX Life Sciences space, we found that only Merit had the depth of Life Science industry experience we expected, references that were rock solid, and a string of account “saves” that were undeniable. It made for an easy choice – Merit Solutions.
The AX technical team was able to configure and modify AX to meet our unique challenges as a services organization, as well as help integrate other third-party tools as part of the solution. The mobility team developed an elastic and powerful architecture from scratch by leveraging cutting-edge Microsoft technology like Azure, and cross-platform mobile tools from Xamarin – able to be deployed to Android, iOS, or Windows devices – effectively making the solution “future proof”. The technological underpinnings of their work will form the foundation of our internal development for years to come.
I made my recommendation of Merit Solutions based on the integrity that I saw prior to selection. After interviewing many, many implementation partners with several different solutions, I can say that this is uncommon.
Merit engaged with us at all levels, from the strategic down to the technical, to first diagnose what was wrong, then develop a workable action plan to stabilize the platform, make significant improvements to our AX deployment so that it met our major functional requirements, and longer-term to improve our regulatory compliance posture and SDLC practices. We were very impressed with the quality of the advice Merit consultants gave us starting from day one of the engagement, and even more impressed with the results after we followed their guidance.
Merit Solutions was able to handle the intricacies of successfully migrating our legacy data, while at the same time building support and user acceptance of Microsoft Dynamics AX within our organization. More than anything else, these two factors are what enabled us to understand what we have to do as a company to meet our goals, and what we could do in the future to improve upon our business.
Merit took the time to work through the needs of our business and understand the goals of the company. They had a strong implementation road map which included process maps, prototypes, and proof of concept designs. Merit Solutions customers can feel confident they are getting individualized, detailed plans regarding their exact implementation process.
Merit Solutions has the in depth knowledge of the Microsoft Dynamics products and the implementation experience as well as their expertise in the Life Science space that exceeded our needs as a partner in implementing ERP and quality solutions. Merit has an excellent track record of providing outstanding customer support and delivering successful project results and solutions for MannKind. They have an excellent team of professionals – their responses are prompt and their solutions are effective.
The consultants’ knowledge of the software and our business has helped us streamline processes and improve our business. The entire Merit Solutions team has always been helpful, courteous, and has done whatever needs to be done to make our partnership successful.
Merit Solutions is very easy to work with. Everyone “gets it”. They have learned our business and our oddities very quickly.
Merit Solutions provides great status reports. The Merit team also is flexible and deals well with our frequent schedule/scope changes.
I enjoy the communication and responsiveness to questions and issues. I feel like I am informed on progress. I appreciate the updates after the phone calls.
The highly professional approach to our project resulted in the results we expected on the schedule promised under the budget estimates. It’s hard to beat that combination. Thanks for being flexible in working with our distributed team and for a great result.
The whole team rocks!
(Merit) has been a great asset to the team with (their) vast industry experience and AX knowledge. I’m very impressed with (their) ability to rapidly pick up and retain Stanley Steemer-specific business processes and fit them into the overarching design.
Our SharePoint site has enabled us to streamline our information sharing efforts. In the long term it will save financial resources as we move our company intranet to the site.
Merit Solutions understands our position and our business and is willing to guide us into solutions that will benefit our organization, even if it doesn’t translate into large consulting fees for themselves. Their staff is knowledgeable, understanding and great to work with.
Merit Solutions has been a good Microsoft Dynamics AX partner for us and has added true business value to our organization. We liked that Merit Solutions kept the cost-estimates, even though the project changed on the way. We felt the Merit Solutions Development team had very good knowledge of Axapta and X++ coding.
The consultants have a good attitude and are attentive to our questions. AP has been a difficult area and they have been very patient with the training.
The ability to trace lot numbers is key. Merit extended Microsoft (Dynamics) system capabilities for forward and backward tracking of material lots through production, manufacturing, and out the door to the customers, all within compliance of FDA Title 21 CFR Part 11 Audit Trail regulations. Merit Solutions provided the system deployment expertise in an assured and conformant configuration. I am convinced that Microsoft (Dynamics) with (Merit Solutions) Life Sciences is the best choice we could have made for our organization and believe it is the best solution for firms managing FDA-significant processes within their systems.
Merit Solutions is willing to tackle anything we want. (They) can and will address anything that comes up.
The Merit consultants listened to our business needs and responded with excellent business recommendations. That certainly helped make the implementation process go smoothly.
The Merit Solutions directed implementation methodology allowed us to get our business up-and-running within two weeks while remaining under budget.
Mid-Continent Instruments brought in consultants from Merit Solutions to execute the Microsoft (Dynamics) deployment. After 108 days, we went live with 55 users. The results have been reduced inventory, increased sales, increased employee productivity, and increased throughput without adding head-count. The new system supports the companies’ growth strategy, and the investment paid for itself within 10 months.
Merit has met or exceeded every requirement levied by industry regulators and our own internal Quality and Regulatory compliance staff for managing and making controlled changes to our validated AX environment.
We were satisfied with (Merit’s) work. (They were) able to help us successfully reach our implementation objectives. Now 1 1/2 months after go-live we are finding the results of our implementation are positive with no major problems.
Merit Solutions is the best Dynamics Consulting Partner we have used. They have delivered all of our projects with high quality and reliability. Merit is a group of individuals that simply do not know the definition of “good enough”. They set the highest standards of quality for themselves, and always strive to surpass them. I would trust them to help me implement Microsoft Dynamics in the future!

There were times when I wished a developer would have heeded my pleas to STOP working and go home, so that I did not feel so guilty about her working such long hours… The level of professionalism displayed by all of them is very admirable…
We have done many projects over the course of several years with Merit, only because each project is better than the last. Merit seems to do an excellent job of growing the skills of its resources.
Merit had a very good understanding of the modules we needed help with and more importantly how to use those modules in the real world… Overall we feel our upgrade with Merit went very well. Merit has quality consultants that know what they are doing and understand Dynamics. We will use them again in the future and would definitely recommend them to other companies.
Having worked with Merit on multiple projects, our relationship is one that other teams look to as the perfect example. Open, candid discussions have contributed to an atmosphere of trust and respect. I cannot imagine one thing that requires improvement in this area.

Their commitment to being the best in class Dynamics business partner themselves manifests itself in the (projects) we have worked with them closely to enhance and improve in market.
The Merit team adopts to any project, and flawlessly fits into a working dynamic with new teams and challenges. They are consistently able to deliver superb solutions.
I like the knowledge of the consultants and the ability to look at our processes and figure out the best way Dynamics can help in our processes, rather than looking from Dynamics to our processes… We are extremely pleased with our relationship and partnership with Merit Solutions.
Recent ERP Reports find that half of the organizations surveyed never achieved even 50% of the expected benefits from their investments into their ERP system.
