Challenge

IT Vision faced many challenges to implement and adapt the system for business management. It was decided to implement Microsoft Dynamics and adapt it for VISIONAPARTMENTS needs. At the beginning of the work, the company used a different system, which is why the implementation had to be gradual, without colliding with existing solutions. Step by step, the old system was phased out and substituted by Microsoft solutions.   Because VISIONAPARTMENTS is a global company the system needed to be adapted to the accounting and tax requirements of many countries. In addition, the company includes not only proprietary apartments, but also other companies. Due to the international and multi-entity nature of the company, a multi-level system integration between the group's entities was required.   Due to company’s character it couldn't work without a rental management system. During the project, VISIONAPARTMENTS created a dedicated platform to manage rental (VMS), reservations, invoicing, supply and organization of work related to the maintenance of premises (maintenance, cleaning staff, internal logistics). IT Vision has fully integrated the Microsoft Dynamics system with the VMS management platform.

Solution

Considering VISIONAPARTMENTS specifics and mainly its international character, ERP System was adapted to different accounting and tax requirements of countries such as Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Poland. To obtain the highest efficiency of the system, and thus the company, the latest Microsoft Dynamics options were used. Solutions were implemented in over 20 companies in VISIONAPARTMENTS group.   In addition, internal processes at VISIONAPARTMENTS were reorganized and streamlined to improve the efficiency of company management. IT Vision, taking into account the dynamic development of the company, enabled easy system update, which was not possible in previously used solutions.   IT Vision implemented many additional functionalities such as: advanced reporting and consolidation of reports, deposits management and automation of their settlements, automation of intercompany transactions and standardization of settings for all entities in the group.

Result
