Hornby Hobbies Customer Story

Hornby Hobbies enhances performance and flexibility while achieving cost efficiencies by hosting its Microsoft Dynamics AX estate in the Six Degrees Enterprise Cloud.

Hornby Hobbies (Hornby) is a household name in the UK, and its brands including Hornby, Airfix and Scalextric have been synonymous with hobby and toy products for generations. With hundreds of stockists around the UK, a highly effective Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool is vital to the operation of Hornby’s business.

Hornby uses Microsoft’s ERP tool, Dynamics AX, to manage its operations. Prior to engaging with Six Degrees, Hornby needed its application hosting environment to be migrated to a new platform that provided improved stability, performance and security.

By transitioning its Dynamics AX platform to the Six Degrees Enterprise Cloud, Hornby has enhanced its performance and flexibility while achieving cost efficiencies and receiving a proactive service that saves Hornby’s people time and mitigates the impact of infrastructure issues.
