Avid Dental began in 2014 as a new manufacture and distributor of dental hygiene instruments and right from the start it had tremendous vision. Growth was 83% through its sale force and national dealer network. Avid needed a serious solution to grow,

Challenges

Avid Dental realized that their antiquated custom programs and manual process could not provide the online sales, ordering and marketing tools that they need to keep up with its growth. Their team wanted a robust webstore, customer portal, and inventory control solution, integration to eliminate manual processes and spreadsheets, and flexible reporting that could easily be shared with their remote management team.

Additionally, Avid recently purchase Dynamics CRM that needed to integrate with their distribution solution

The Solution

They chose Centerprism built on Microsoft Dynamics GP because it offered a complete solution to solve all their technology needs including E-Commerce, sales & distribution.
