Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 for Retail, the new version of Microsoft’s end-to-end software solution for midsize and enterprise retailers, was launched in 25 countries on Wednesday.
The software, which was announced officially last month, addresses retailers’ need to tackle a growing number of business challenges, including mobile and Web sales, social media, rapid growth, global distribution, multi-faceted customer interaction, modernized in-store experiences, and complex pricing and inventory.
This newest version of Microsoft Dynamics provides retailers the means to automate, streamline, control, and adapt various aspects of their business simultaneously, said Michael Griffiths, global director of retail and distribution for Microsoft Dynamics.
“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.”
