Our project managers have many years of managing projects using many different project management disciplines.

Microsoft SureStep+ also includes tools and templates to help your teams with their individual project tasks too. This means a faster and more streamlined implementation.
Systems integration is about more than system design and application development. While it is important that integrations are properly developed and tested, they must connect value streams in a seamless and scalable manner. It is just as important that people and work streams are enabled by the systems with high reliability and the opportunity for continuous improvement.

We can help you define effective SLA’s for responding to issues based on the business severity. We could free up your in-house staff by taking care of your ongoing business support entirely. Alternatively, our consultants can mentor your support staff on site.
Few problems are new for our leading experts, who will have seen related problems multiple times. This makes us more time and cost efficient. Our experience will also lead us toward any other impacts that might not be identified early, which means the same problem being revisited multiple times over several iterations. We can also provide community management on a short term basis whilst providing mentoring to your internal staff to take over the helm.

User Role Based Security
User role based security is often considered much later in the implementation process, and the scale and complexity of the work involved is underestimated. This ultimately has an impact on solution and timeline.
Due to inadequate security during testing, testers are often assigned system administrator accesses, which can often be the case until Go Live. Work then has to be done to lock down the access post Go-Live which causes a huge disruption to the business.
Your Hammden consultants can help you to shape and design your role based security. The design can then be handed over to the team responsible for building the security roles. By having a clear strategy early on the process, along with early business engagement, security can be ready and unit tested in time for the key
Microsoft Dynamics AX Functional Testing
Here at Hammden, we have refined our testing services through decades of real world experiences and scenarios. Our consultants’ many years of Dynamics AX testing experience makes it easy to reduce the impact of poor quality software within your organization.

Testing effort is often cyclical. That means most organizations don’t have any need to maintain a fully resourced testing team or department at all times. Hammden consulting – there whenever you need us.
Our consultants are Microsoft Dynamics certified and have many years real-world Dynamics software and training experience. We can become your training partner in whichever capacity you require. We can even provide a training facility, taking your staff out of the business environment and allowing them to focus entirely on learning your Microsoft Dynamics product.
Key user and trainer training
Instead of relying on one individual to go through a lengthy training process, we can help you build an entire team of enablers to accomplish your training initiatives in shorter timescales. We can provide training on both the out-of-the box software , and your specific tailored solution. . We can include soft skills as part of the training, to ensure readiness of your staff for large scale implementations. Soft skills include teaching your staff to lead discussions and helping participants to link training to their job role, and the future state Dynamics solution.
Companies often train their staff right at the beginning of the Dynamics implementation in order to provide them with an up-front understanding of the transition from the ‘as-is’ to the ‘to-be’. We can provide this training, and in addition we can go one step further in helping them set up a cross team mini pilot based on a business scenario that is familiar. This will be a huge benefit in helping them make key decisions during the design phase, thus reducing the risk of complex developments to recreate the ‘as-is’
End user training
If you prefer, we can carry out the training for you entirely, by producing training material specific to your tailored solution, and training your entire end user community.. If we have been involved in your implementation from the early days, our consultants will already be known to your employees as experts in their field –so who better to teach them how to use the full power of Microsoft Dynamics.
