In many different industries the role of warehousing parts and items and the logistics around this process are a core business process. This means that the requirements can be very specific in order to keep the business lean and low cost. In order to support companies that depend heavily on warehouse management and distribution processes, To-Increase has developed and delivered an Industry Solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX2009. The vision for this relatively new Industry Solution is to provide modern functionality to serve as a best of breed solution.
To-Increase Warehouse Management and Distribution builds on robust Microsoft Dynamics® AX functionality to automate the materials handling process for retailers, manufacturers, Distributors, and third-party logistics providers. By integrating advanced radio-frequency (RF) and bar-coding technologies with core warehouse automation, Warehouse Management and Distribution streamlines order management, receiving, stocking, replenishment, picking, and shipping. Your organization can move forward to enhance customer satisfaction with faster turnaround times and precise order fulfillment.
Warehouse Management and Distribution solution will further verticalize into five distinct verticals in order to provide even better coverage of business requirements.
* Apparel & Footware
* Industrial & Wholesale
