After Damgaard was taken over by Microsoft, I founded HFI Software Consulting AG together with some Damgaard developers with headquarters in Switzerland and a branch office in Oberhausen and Graz, as well as a development house in Vilnius / Lithuania. Subsequently we became Microsoft Dynamics Partner.

Due to ever increasing requirements of Microsoft in the Dynamics AX partnership, we decided to terminate the partnership in 2008. This was the beginning of my life as an independent freelancer in the Dynamics AX project business for my colleagues and myself.
