Aurizon Mines Limited

Business Needs

Aurizon Mines needed to perform an important upgrade of their operating software but since the software was no longer current and no longer developed by their provider, it had to be replaced. Aurizon Mines evaluated several solutions. Further to an exhaustive evaluation of the solutions available on the market, it became obvious that solutions for large companies were too complex. Aurizon Mines started to look into intermediate solutions since the company needed to find a solution adapted to their needs.


Finally, Aurizon Mines chose Microsoft Dynamics GP for many reasons. Not only the solution offered an excellent quality-price ratio, was Sarbanes-Oxley compliant but it fully supported the growth strategy of the company. The implementation of Microsoft Dynamics GP took six months. A couple of modifications were necessary since the solution was not totally adapted for the gold industry. All modifications were implemented without difficulties and the implementation went smoothly. The solution is now adapted to the needs of the company.


Thanks to Microsoft Dynamics GP, not only is the solution compliant to Sarbanes-Oxley, it also enables Aurizon Mines to develop reports adapted according to requests. All three divisions are now consolidated allowing a global view of the company enabling quick and strategic decisions. Also, the tight integration of Microsoft Office and other Microsoft products makes it user-friendly. Aurizon Mines can work on several budgets and the extraction of data can rapidly be done. It’s now easier to work on files.
