Crowe Horwath Teams Up With ZAP to Provide Business Intelligence Solutions for Microsoft Dynamics

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2014 Crowe Horwath LLP, one of the largest public accounting and consulting firms in the U.S., today announced that it would be offering industry-focused business analytics through its affiliation with ZAP, a leading provider of Business Intelligence solutions for Microsoft Dynamics.

Crowe Horwath, a strategic implementer of technology solutions has been helping its clients achieve results for more than 30 years, providing enterprise system implementation, training, and consulting for medium-to large-size businesses. Crowe helps businesses improve organizational performance by leveraging the capabilities of best-in-class Microsoft Dynamics® solutions including Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

ZAP provides a unique, out-of-the-box business intelligence solution using its deep industry expertise and data analysis skills to create solutions for Microsoft Dynamics with industry focuses. ZAP deployments are rapid, deliver immediate outcomes, are tailored for each user in an enterprise, and provide organizations with BI self-sufficiency.

“Crowe’s industry accelerators give our customers the benefits of Microsoft Dynamics AX with industry-specific functionality customized to their businesses. For example, a client’s pricing models or material optimization plans that distinguish them from their competitors are built directly into their Dynamics AX system, so they can better compete in their markets,” said Simon Riley, a principal in Crowe’s Performance services. “ZAP’s solution builds on this by immediately providing the corresponding, business-specific data, so the business can analyze and make improvements.” As Microsoft Dynamics continues to be more and more successful in both mid-market and enterprise AX ERP sales, ZAP continues to refine its search for the best Microsoft partners that understand the market-place. “The opportunity to work with Crowe Horwath with its large customer base of well-known, global organizations across various industries is a great example of how ZAP continues to strive to team with the best.” said Garth D. Laird, President of ZAP. “Already in month one of our relationship we’ve had two major BI wins with Crowe’s existing customers and in doing so have provided incredible value to not only the customer, but to Crowe Horwath and ZAP as well.” About Crowe Horwath Crowe Horwath LLP ( is one of the largest public accounting and consulting firms in the United States. Under its core purpose of "Building Value with Values®," Crowe uses its deep industry expertise to provide audit services to public and private entities while also helping clients reach their goals with tax, advisory, risk and performance services.

Crowe serves clients worldwide as an independent member of Crowe Horwath International, one of the largest global accounting networks in the world, consisting of more than 150 independent accounting and advisory services firms in more than 100 countries around the world.

About ZAP With customers across 30 countries and many Microsoft Inner-Circle and President's Club partners, ZAP is focused on delivering rapidly deployed, business-focused business intelligence software and solutions.

Unlike other BI companies that are just focused on features and functionality, ZAP focuses primarily on what is needed for rapid uptake and effective use of BI across the enterprise. Our applications have state-of-the-art features but ZAP's essential difference is that we focus on the content itself; which can be immediately made available to the users.

This removes the burden of the end-user from trying to figure out first how to use the software provided, and second what questions they should try to answer with the tools.

ZAP's software is such that BI content can be pre-built, packaged, maintained and reused.

This allows ZAP and its business partners to apply their deep industry expertise and data analysis skills to create business intelligence solutions for applications (like Microsoft Dynamics) with specific industry focuses (Retail, Manufacturing, etc.) with BI deployments that are rapid, deliver immediate business outcomes and are tailored for each user in an enterprise.
