Good News For Government Contractors From Sopris Systems, Pleasant Valley Business Solutions, Experts In Microsoft Dynamics AX

Leading Microsoft Service Industries Partner expands Dynamics AX solution offering for government contractors

February 12, 2015 (Reston, VA) — Sopris Systems, a leading Microsoft Service Industry Dynamics AX ERP partner—specializing in project-based service organizations—has announced an independent software vendor (ISV) partnership with Pleasant Valley Business Solutions (PVBS) for Dynamics AX for Government Contractors.

With 20 years in the Dynamics AX business, Sopris focuses on architects, engineers, and construction (AEC), specialty contractors, IT consulting, and field service-related industries. In turn, PVBS is recognized as Microsoft’s top solution provider for government contractors. The Sopris/PVBS solution for government contractors offers best-in-class functionality within cost-plus contracts, labor distribution, indirect costs allocations, revenue recognition, government billing forms (SF 1034/1035), and project budgets and forecasts.

“This is an exciting time in the evolution of ERP for service industries,” said Sopris executive vice president Ken Eldridge, particularly in the government contractor space. Dynamics AX at its core has always been a multi-industry ERP offering with cross-functional operational and financial management in one enterprise system. With Dynamics AX for Government Contractors, we can now take this multi-industry foundation to government contractors. This provides tremendous flexibility at a lower cost for customers that have been held somewhat hostage with limited offerings, high maintenance fees and operating cost with other legacy systems in this space.”

“This partnership brings government compliance from PVBS together with innovative functionality from Sopris,” said PVBS CEO Bernard Mustafa, “and gives our enterprise clients a comprehensive solution to address the various needs of their commercial and public sector divisions. Organizations working in this space have been forced to purchase and support multiple costly, disparate accounting and business systems to address Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), and Defense Contract Audits Agency (DCAA) regulatory requirements. Dynamics AX for Government Contractors will allow companies with both commercial and government businesses to maintain one ERP solution.”

Sopris Systems and Pleasant Valley Business Solutions are part of Microsoft’s GovCon Alliance Program. Through the Alliance, government contractors can access solution providers that strike a better balance between the regulatory mandate for compliance and the business imperative for flexibility and agility. Sopris Systems is proud to be a Microsoft GovCon Alliance Associate. (
