NIMR Tanzania + MSH: Transforming Health Systems with Strategies, Tools, and Management Support for Governments, Health Organizations, and the Private Sector.

NIMR Tanzania & Management Sciences for Health (MSH)

Discover how a nonprofit advisory organization boosted its productivity by 5X and slashed input costs by 78% through seamless management of finance and operations using Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 (now Dynamics 365 Finance).


NIMR Tanzania, a nonprofit advisory organization that underwent significant growth, faced challenges due to the lack of integration among its finance and operations systems. MSH (Management Sciences for Health) partnered with AccTech Systems to review NIMR's financial management system requirements, and brought onboard Dynamics Square (a leading Microsoft Gold Partner and Cloud Solution Provider in the USA) to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 On-premises version (Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations, now Dynamics 365 Finance) to address NIMR's grant management, project budgeting, time tracking, financial reporting, and other finance related challenges.

By implementing a modern financial solution like Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, NIMR Tanzania is efficiently managing its operations, and providing a better experience globally. This nonprofit has made a significant impact on millions of lives and continues to do so.

Business Challenges NIMR Tanzania Faced


Lack of integration among current systems supporting operations.

Manual processing, maintenance of parallel systems, and extensive reconciliation efforts.

Producing reports and satisfying information requests is a labor-intensive process.

Current processes are structured around constraints of the current systems or are the result of "organic" adjustments.

Need to review NIMR's financial management system requirements.

Require an independent, objective third party perspective to take a fresh look at how work is performed from a best practices perspective.

The need to streamline grant management, project budgeting, time tracking by project and location, and financial reporting from research centers.
