Junction Solutions, a leading provider of vertical market-specific on-premise and on-demand software applications and services for the manufacturing, distribution, retail and life sciences sectors, announced the completion of an ERP upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 for the Royal Canadian Mint.
The Royal Canadian Mint is a world-class provider of branded investment, collectible and secure payment products and services with facilities in Ottawa and Winnipeg, as well as a boutique location in Vancouver. As a for-profit corporation, it produces circulation and non-circulation coins and manages the domestic coinage system in addition to the production and marketing of bullion and related refinery products and services. The Royal Canadian Mint also produces foreign coinage and offers storage, assaying and refining services, and as a multi-channel retailer, operates brick-and-mortar stores, a call center, and an online storefront to sell its products worldwide.
The successful project consisted of a complex upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics AX 4 to a customized version of Dynamics AX 2012 that had to account for the Royal Canadian Mint’s discrete, process and lean manufacturing functions. Additionally, Junction Solutions layered in modules to support the retail operations, refinery production, and precision financial tracking of the Mint’s $3.4 billion business.
“We look forward to moving our business toward future goals with improved speed and efficiencies across our manufacturing and retail business operations using Dynamics AX 2012,” said Greg Smith, CIO, Royal Canadian Mint. “Junction Solutions implemented a sophisticated and robust ERP solution that provides unique capabilities to our business in sales, manufacturing and refining.”
“The Royal Canadian Mint was an early adopter of Dynamics AX and is a long-standing customer with Junction Solutions,” said Debby Smith, vice-president of Customer Relations, Junction Solutions. “The company’s leadership continues to focus on using technology to drive its business forward. We are honored to be their long-term technology partner and look forward to helping them meet their complex business requirements and future business goals.”
