In early 2016, a new investor for Eazi Access propelled the group into a more ambitious growth strategy. Since than they further expand the business. All the dots connected: Eazi Access researched and saw the benefits of using a cloud-based platform. Especially one that combined ERP and CRM together with mobile field service and offline functionality.

The total solution needed to balance the latest IT innovations. Including the challenges of local Internet connectivity and industry-specific needs for equipment rental and service.

After a rigorous evaluation, Eazi Access selected the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Cloud Strategy and DynaRent for Dynamics 365. This is the solutions set that speaks to their well-defined growth goals.
