Warehousing for AX 2012 (WAX) and Transportation for AX 2012 (TRAX)

Blue Horseshoe announced a collaboration agreement with Microsoft today that includes the acquisition of Blue Horseshoe’s Warehousing for AX (WAX) and Transportation for AX (TRAX) solutions. This technology will help Microsoft accelerate its Microsoft Dynamics AX supply chain management roadmap with plans to make the functionality available to the broader Dynamics AX channel partner and customer community.

Both WAX and TRAX are products within Blue Horseshoe’s Supply Chain Suite for Dynamics AX. These solutions embed industry-specific functionality directly into the business layer of Microsoft’s Dynamic AX architecture to offer identical performance, user-interface, and business logic as Dynamics AX.

The Warehouse Management & Transportation Management capabilities within WAX and TRAX can empower channel partners to focus on delivering packaged, end-to-end, vertical solutions to customers operating businesses in the manufacturing, distribution or retail industries.
The WAX and TRAX solution additions will help streamline distribution and warehouse operations, including:

1. Improved Inventory Control.

2. Embedded Radio Frequency.

3. Improved Inbound & Outbound Warehouse Operations.

4. Rate, Route and Load Planning.

5. Freight Reconciliation.
