Building on its Dynamic Business vision and continued investment in key industries such as the retail industry, Microsoft today introduced Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail, a new end-to-end solution designed for mid-sized specialty retailers. The new solution, expected to be available this summer, offers retailers a deep level of integration across point of sale, store management, supply chain, merchandising and financials to address business productivity while enhancing customer service in a single solution.
Sure to grab retailers’ attention are the close integration possibilities Microsoft Dynamics AX will offer with additional Microsoft products such as Windows 7, Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint Server and SQL Server, enabling retailers to gain even more insight into customer behavior and apply it to optimize their entire chain of operations from sales to supply. As Crispin Read, general manager, Microsoft Dynamics ERP explains “Our goal is to realize the Dynamic Business vision in the retail industry. By enabling a truly connected retailer experience through a single, end-to-end Microsoft-provided solution, customers can lower their total cost of ownership, reduce complexity, and improve the accuracy of information, all vital in today’s evolving retail environment.”
