Case Study: Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics

To strengthen business continuity for its operations and customers, Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics moved its on-premises Microsoft Dynamics AX solution to the cloud with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management. The company can now engage customers in new ways, strengthen synergies among processes and tools, recover more rapidly from adverse events, and easily expand functionality to meet future needs.
