The market increasingly is conquered by new technologies that challenge the retail sector: Omni channel processes must be organized to provide customers with an optimal customer journey. Comprehensive product ranges and, in some cases, fast product changeovers complicate the situation.

Mastering these challenges requires a well-structured system landscape as well as methodically designed and implemented software tailored to the needs of retail companies and their customers.

The cutting-edge solution is fully embedded into Microsoft Dynamics AX. With ax|is fashion, users have easy access to relevant information regarding the creation of products along the value chain at all times.
The out-of-the-box fashion functionality eliminates the need for extensive backend configuration, resulting in shorter implementation cycles and quicker ROI.
