Alpha Trains

Alpha Trains is implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations and Sycor.Rental. The company currently owns and manages a fleet of approximately 380 locomotives and 435 passenger trains and supports major public and private operators in 13 countries. "We will be managing our entire leasing business with Sycor.Rental going forward", explains Ingo Wurzer, Chief Financial Officer at Alpha Trains. "The powerful rental functions of Sycor.Rental, the trend-setting basis of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations and Sycor's implementation competence proved convincing for us."

"We are implementing both the financial and rental processes. In doing so, we will be going live with all legal entities at the same time, currently 20 companies in seven countries," says Sycor Project Manager Holger Dötsch.

Sycor.Rental – modern ERP industry solution

Sycor.Rental is a fully integrated, practical ERP industry solution for the rental, service, and maintenance of mobile goods and for "product as a service" business models, built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. The solution combines the scalability and flexibility of the cloud with role-based, fully mobile access to data and functions. Companies gain an overview of the entire rental process chain along with all other business processes in one solution. Rental processes are fully integrated into the standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations project module. The processes are backed by rental-specific asset lifecycle management and business intelligence functions as well as far-reaching and structured device specifications. Sycor.Rental therefore supports fast decisions through streamlined processes, user friendliness and ease of use.
