Microsoft Will Release Dynamics AX for Retail in August

Earlier this year, Microsoft Corp. announced the future release of their new retail management software named Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail 2010, at the National Retail Federation Annual Convention. This software offers retailers an integrated solution where they can manage sales, supply chain, merchandising and financials in one place. This will help companies improve customer service and productivity.

The Dynamics ERP Retail AX builds on Microsoft’s Dynamic Business vision to connect the retailer with an end-to-end solution that lowers the total cost of ownership, simplifies the sales process, and improves data accuracy. The software was specifically designed for midsize retailers. Retailers will be able to gain insight about customers so that they can customize their chain of operations from sales to supply for maximum optimization. This retail management software will prevent the duplication of data and effort, saving time and money. It will also help reduce training times.

Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail even supports a payment service, which allows customers to process transactions with payment processing service providers, like First Data Merchant Services Corp. Dynamics AX will also support commerce service.

Major retail companies look forward to deploying Microsoft Dynamics AX for retail, including HDS and Avanade. The Senior Business Development Director at Avanade, Michael Merfeld, said, “Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail is a comprehensive solution because it provides a solid, scalable foundation to build the specific vertical functionality our retail customers need, while focusing on the low total cost of ownership for the retailer with measurable ROI.”

Microsoft consulted with Aldata to produce the advanced retail management solution. The Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail is targeted to be released on Aug. 1, 2010, in 16 countries, including the United States.
