This case study of Retail Food Group is based on a June 2017 survey of Global Software, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. “Atlas allows for reports to be built and run in a timely manner. Many standard AX 2012 R3 reports do not cater for what finance teams need to operate their business as effectively as possible. Atlas does.” The reporting pain point that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select Atlas by Global Software, Inc.:
  • Limit on data allowed to produce a large report
Used Atlas for reporting beyond Financials/GL in the following areas:
  • Project management
  • Sales/marketing
  • Inventory

  • Improved access to live data to make strategic decisions
  • Users being able to create their own reports, and less dependence on IT
  • The ability to upload data directly from Excel
