Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 for Retail, the new version of Microsoft's end-to-end software solution for midsize and enterprise retailers, launches in 25 countries today.
The newest version of Microsoft Dynamics is the ultimate control panel for a retailer to easily automate, streamline, control, and adapt various aspects of their business simultaneously, said Michael Griffiths, global director of retail and distribution for Microsoft Dynamics.
Microsoft Dynamics aims to help retailers tackle a growing number of business considerations, including mobile and Web sales, social media, rapid growth, global distribution, multi-faceted customer interaction, modernized in-store experiences, and complex pricing and inventory.
Microsoft Dynamics also helps retailers do heavy lifting on the business's back-end without having to do complicated coding. Want to add a new retail location? Microsoft Dynamics lets users see their entire business graphically, and even easily drag and drop graphics to create new store locations in the system or to add new distribution channels.
Dynamics AX for Retail offers a complete hub of capabilities like point of sale (shown in the picture below), inventory, supply chain, and financials, and also deep integration with Microsoft business applications.
"When you look at what's happening in the retail market, businesses have to keep up with and adapt to fast-moving trends and ever-widening customer expectations," Griffiths said. "Our strength is that Microsoft Dynamics offers a complete hub that provides not only core capabilities like point of sale, inventory, supply chain, and financials, but also deep integration with Microsoft's full line of business applications such as SharePoint, Visual Studio, and Excel."
Microsoft is also having a virtual launch today, February 1st, 2012, for the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 for Retail at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time (US).
