The Business Challenge

The client strategy to invest heavily is a rigorous process of research, planning, and due diligence to ensure successful outcomes. Because they work with a wide range of complex asset classes, the company determined it needed open access to a platform and ability to customize as needed. Domain 6 was chosen to support the project as a flexible services organization with robust Microsoft Dynamics ERP knowledge.

Within a year, the client had migrated from Yardi Gemina to Microsoft Dynamics 365. Domain 6 and the internal development operations team configured the platform and continue to add modules to the application today.
