Royal Canadian Mint Replaces Legacy ERP Systems to Accommodate Significant Growth



    -- JunctionMCR built on Microsoft Dynamics AX Streamlines "Order to Cash"
Retail Processes, Increases Efficiency, and Enhances Customer Service --

    LINCOLNSHIRE, ILL., October 9 /CNW/ - Junction Solutions, a provider of
vertical industry focused enterprise software and services based on the
Microsoft platform, today announced that the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM),
Canada's national mint, mandated to produce circulation coinage and manage the
supporting distribution system, has successfully implemented JunctionMCR, a
multi-channel retail solution to manage its business across multiple sales
channels, integrate business processes and better serve customers. The RCM is
one of several significant organizations that have selected JunctionMCR this
year, including New York Mint, another provider of collectible coins and
currency in the United States.

    Founded in 1908, the RCM successfully operates under four principle lines
of business - Canadian circulation coins, numismatic coins (collector coins
and coin-related gifts), foreign circulation coins and bullion & refinery. In
the past few years, the RCM's continued strong focus on its customers and
quality products has seen revenues double which has resulted in strong
profitable growth.

    In order to manage the current and anticipated growth, the RCM made the
decision to replace their legacy ERP systems. After an extensive review of
numerous software providers, the RCM chose JunctionMCR, a multi-channel retail
system from Junction Solutions, Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP, and eBECS Lean
Enterprise for Lean manufacturing. Based on solid experience and product
knowledge, Deloitte Consulting was chosen to lead the integration project.
Deloitte, with the support of both Junction Solutions and eBECS, worked to
integrate these systems and leverage the RCM's existing Microsoft technology
stack which includes SQL Server, Windows Server, Microsoft Office SharePoint
Server, Commerce Server and Biztalk.

    "With JunctionMCR, we have been able to streamline our Order-to-Cash
retail processes resulting in an increase in efficiency and customer service,"
says Greg Smith, Executive Director, Business Transformation at the RCM. "We
are now able to better serve our customers, prepare for future growth, while
at the same time improving the bottom line through JunctionMCR's control and
integration of retail processes, systems and channels."
