Top Project Highlights

LAIKA Dynamics AX Implementation and Upgrade to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

LAIKA is a full feature film production company based in Hillsboro, Oregon.  They specialize in stop motion animation.  Some of their films include Kubo and the Two Strings, Paranorman, and Coraline.  I was the lead developer during LAIKA’s initial implementation of Dynamics AX 2009 in 2009-2010.  I remained very involved with the client as we made continuous improvements to the system.  In November 2018, LAIKA initiated an upgrade to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.  I served as the Technical Lead on that upgrade.  We went live in June of 2019.   

IDEO Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Implementation with Integrations with Several External Systems

IDEO’s implementation of Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations began in 2017.  I served as the Technical Lead on that implementation which involved interfacing several different business systems within IDEO’s ecosystem.  These external systems included expense reporting in Expensify, talent management in Bamboo, and project management in a Maverick.  I worked closely with the client to implement an integration framework that I designed to support this requirement.  Together we were successful in creating a system that processed over 10,000 records every four hours.    

Nunes/Foxy Produce Dynamics AX Implementation of Handheld devices in Coolers

Located in the Salinas river valley of California with operations in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, Nunes is a grower and distributor of produce such as romaine lettuce, cabbage, asparagus, and broccoli.  They don't call their warehouses "warehouses".  They are coolers.  And for good reason.  It's cold in there.  As a produce grower and distributor, inventory cannot be held over.  Everything that gets harvested that day must go out that day.  So, expedient processing is key to their success.  I lead a team to implement the use of handheld devices in their coolers.  We used our own IP and streamlined it for their specific business processes.  Later we implemented the use of pallets.  I worked with this client for approximately 10 years making continuous improvements to their business system which handles inventory, warehousing, purchasing, sales, and finance/accounting.
