New cloud solution offers embedded integration with Dynamics AX combined with highly scalable managed services approach for trading partner integration
Coventry & Manchester UK. (6th September 2016)--- TrueCommerce, a HighJump company and a global provider of trading partner connectivity and integration solutions, has announced the availability of a breakthrough EDI solution for the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics AX (previously referred to as AX7). For the first time, TrueCommerce is offering deep cloud-to-cloud EDI/Microsoft Dynamics integration, previously attainable only through on-premises deployments. The cloud-based platform enables AX users to collaborate with their supply chain partners using EDI and other data standards without having to customise AX or manage trading partner mapping and connectivity requirements.
“Microsoft Dynamics AX has a long history of offering robust Enterprise caliber capabilities to help organisations scale their business,” said TrueCommerce president Nick Manolis. “This release has repositioned Dynamics AX to deliver those same benefits, but with the advantages of cloud-based technology, including rapid deployment and high availability. We anticipate that the market response to this new platform will be very strong and have made a strategic decision to invest in this new integration with Microsoft. TrueCommerce is completely ready for the shift.”The TrueCommerce EDI Integration for Microsoft Dynamics AX benefits include:
- Seamless access to the TrueCommerce global trading partner community, including support for XML and global EDI data standards through a single connection to AX cloud
- Reduced reliance on IT resources through Microsoft Dynamics-embedded cloud-to-cloud EDI integration, to align EDI processing with the business users that manage supply chain relationships
- Flexibility to accommodate for AX environment customisations that do not require duplication within the EDI solution
- Seamless integration with the Dynamics AX Warehouse Management and Transportation Management modules
- No on-premises software components to be installed or managed
- Immediate availability for customers in Europe and North America
“Faster communication within the supply chain is essential for businesses today,” says Chris Cunnane, senior analyst, ARC Advisory Group. “One obstacle can be costly IT software or customisations to achieve this communication. With the industry as a whole moving to cloud offerings, a cloud-to-cloud based integration for data exchange is the next logical step. It can eliminate the complexities of managing on-premises software while ensuring fast and seamless communication between trading partners.”
The Microsoft Dynamics AX integration is seamlessly connected to the TrueCommerce Global Commerce Network which includes over 10,000 pre-connected retailers, distributors and logistics service providers. As a true managed services provider, TrueCommerce manages the onboarding process for new trading partners as well as the ongoing management of trading partner specific mapping and labeling changes.
TrueCommerce offers an end-to-end EDI solution for Dynamics AX users while also providing a robust and highly adaptable solution, built to scale for new supply chain partners, document types and distribution models. TrueCommerce fully automates the process of receiving purchase orders into Dynamics AX, as well as sending purchase order acknowledgments, receivable invoices, advance ship notices and other documents. Built-in process controls automatically validate pricing, discounts, customer tiers and other data to ensure EDI transactions are correct and complete before being processed.
