From Sage legacy to modern cloud business applications.

JCR needed to focus on growing their business by being able to add different business processes than they traditionally operated with.

JCR moved from Sage to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, implemented by Bluefort. They wanted to eliminate continued maintenance of on-premise infrastructure which could lower capital expenditure and enable them to optimise on licensing.

JCR Imports reached out to Bluefort for help.

Director, Jonathan Attard notes: “We needed to optimise our financials and inventory with a cloud-first solution and reduce on-premise infrastructure.” Bluefort offered Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central as the solution of choice to meet their goals.

Customer Challenges

JCR Imports was established in 1982 as family-run business. Specialising in building materials supply, their focus has always been to combine excellent customer service and competitive pricing. Established in Malta, JCR Imports has been working with individuals and larger enterprises for over 29 years.

The building material supply industry is an ever-changing and a competitive industry. Continuous advances in product development means that Material suppliers like JCR have to be at the top of their game to ensure high-quality materials that can meet increasingly complex expectations in the building industry.

Partner Solution

The Bluefort team deployed and replaced Sage first with NAV 2017 and migrated JCR to the cloud in 2020. Striking the right balance between Material Procurement, Project Management and Cashflow requires a solid foundation of experience and supportive technologies to remain competitive and profitable. “As a Microsoft Gold Partner, Bluefort has first-hand knowledge and expertise in inventory management and financials and could immediately translate JCR’s challenges to a suitable off-the-shelf solution. With hardly any disruption to our business, we migrated to the Cloud and we can continue to give excellent customer service.” says Attard

Customer Benefits

Based on Microsoft Dynamics 365, JCR turns around financial processes much faster, and their external accounting team has access to the details they need, making emailing financial statements back and forth a thing of the past. The stock management and daily operations processes are now a routine and as they grow their business, new users adopt fast to the processes and the application.

  • Reduced time to report financials
  • Automation in various activities that were done manual before.
  • Optimised business processes in stock management and IT.
