Microsoft announced that Swiss Farms has selected Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail to support its launch of a corporate and franchise system and to integrate its point-of-sale data with back-office operations. Swiss Farms, established in 1968, is a growing drive-through convenience grocery store retailer based in the Philadelphia, Pa., area. It currently operates 13 stores and is about to launch a franchise operation that is expected to add 100 franchisees within five years. Swiss Farms’ expansion was inhibited previously by the point-of-sale software that it had been using on disparate computer systems with a lack of integration and functionality. “They chose Dynamics AX for Retail after an in-depth evaluation process. Working with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Columbus IT, an early global partner in the development of Dynamics AX, Swiss Farms selected Microsoft’s solution over other industry-specific retail solutions. Swiss Farms becomes the first Dynamics AX for Retail customer in US and is anticipating considerable benefits from the solution’s implementation,” stated PressPass.
