Why Choose Microsoft Dynamics AX?

Dynamics AX provides businesses with:

  • A larger functional footprint – HR, CRM, Cost Accounting, MRP, Advanced WMS, Transportation Management, Forecasting, Vendor Portal, Customer Portal, Retail, etc.
  • Deeper functionality – A PO line in other solutions might have 20 fields, a PO line in AX has 120 fields that drive system behavior and functionality; and
  • A solid technical platform that supports large global deployment scenarios, complex integrations, and advanced security and development requirements.
