Dynamics 365 ERP Customer Story with Astatine
Simply Dynamics enables Astatine deliver Sustainable Solutions
Helping Customers achieve Carbon Emission Goals and Sustainability…
Astatine specialises in identifying and implementing renewable energy technologies tailored to clients’ specific requirements.
As a leading innovator in energy and C02 reduction solutions, particularly in decarbonisation – Astatine design innovative technical and commercial solutions to optimise energy efficiency and cost saving while delivering a C02 emissions reduction roadmap and end to end decarbonisation strategies for their clients.
Rapid industry change and demand for Astatine services required the team to take stock of their internal systems and processes and in particular around their ERP Solutions. Astatine very quickly adopted an approach of a total new ERP solution to meet expanding business and customer demands.
After some research and engagement, Astatine chose to partner with Simply Dynamics, a Gold Dynamics 365 Certified Partner to help them to select and install the best Dynamics 365 ERP Cloud Solutions to meet all their long-term sustainability goals.
A key requirement of Astatine was for a rapid deployment and Go Live. As a relatively new start-up venture, Astatine’s ERP project was a completely new install so there was little data migration involved, this enabled them to instead prioritise streamlining and automating some of the key areas of the business.
Astatine wanted a partner that specialised in both the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Platform and have an in-depth knowledge & understanding of the Industry – and Simply Dynamics ticked all the boxes with:
- Dynamics 365 Business Central Cloud ERP
- Integrated D365 SD Document Pack App
- Integrated D365 SD Interface Banking App
- Job Costing Module (integrated to Sales & Purchasing)
- Reporting & Analysis
- As the Astatine business is in the procurement & installation of renewable energy solutions, one of their key priorities was to automate and monitor jobs & projects – and Dynamics 365 Business Central empowered them to deliver on this.
- The Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform has proven to be a highly adaptable and flexible platform for Astatine – with real-time access to data & information for fast and accurate data-driven decision making
Mary Dowling, Finance Manager reports that implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central Online has totally transformed Astatine’s end to end business processes. This newly integrated ERP Solution has enabled a streamlined, integrated, and agile business and with some significant results including:

- The fast system configuration met all of Astatine requirements along with user training workshops which enabled end users to embrace the user adoption.
- Astatine went live with their Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP Project in March 2022.
- This project has provided Astatine with greater visibility and transparency of costs and allows them monitor projects in real-time and flag any budget overspends. The Finance team now have access to a streamlined and automated finance system to meet their needs.
- A big plus of the Dynamics 365 Project and the Simply Dynamics partnership is the flexible option for add-ons as the business evolves and business needs change.
