Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater NJ), a photonics device and component distributor of products for life sciences applications, has partnered with Columbus U.S. to upgrade Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management.

Our legacy system was limiting growth opportunities and our ability to integrate systems and improve efficiencies for our team,” Eric Atanda, Hamamatsu Corporation Vice President of Operations, said in a statement. “We are excited to work with Columbus U.S. to increase agility and visibility throughout our organization.

Hamamatsu Corporation will leverage Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales Finance and Supply Chain Management’s powerful out-of-the-box functionality to support its operations and growth into new markets.

Hamamatsu Corporation also plans to use Columbus Business Insight, which will help Hamamatsu Corporation build and integrate the right business intelligence foundation for better business decision making through advanced analytics.

Hamamatsu’s components are incorporated into systems such as optical measurement systems, imaging systems and image analysis systems that are used in applications such as medical imaging, gene sequencing and academic research.

Columbus U.S. has extensive expertise in delivering technology solutions to medical device and pharmaceutical organizations. These solutions include Cloud ERP, Data and Analytics, and Application Management Service solutions.

A few years ago, when Microsoft launched its ‘Evergreen’ approach, they were really taking on board the version lag that has plagued companies for many years. It allowed Dynamics 365 to update monthly, so the solutions, including all new functionalities, are automatically kept up to date.
There’s no argument that these are challenging times for discrete manufacturers. The pandemic has brought with it a complex set of challenges, and manufacturers are facing a growing skills gap for workers, among other issues.

Careful management of allergens and organics is increasingly important in the food and beverage industry. Manufacturers must closely manage and track both in the production process to avoid cross-contamination, label properly, and meet the expectations of customers, consumers, and regulators. Considering the growing consumer demand for organic and allergen-free products, the payoff of investing time and resources in proper management is worth it. People are paying more attention – and a higher dollar amount – looking for specific products that meet their dietary and lifestyle preferences. If you can reliably produce products that meet those preferences, you can capture their business, build customer loyalty, and remain competitive in your market. Today, properly managing allergens and organics doesn’t have to be a complex, multi-system process. An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with industry-specific features can centralize key aspects of food and beverage manufacturing, saving manufacturers time, reducing risks, and helping them make consistent, quality products with every batch.
