Blue Horseshoe represents top 5 percent of Microsoft Dynamics partners worldwide

Blue Horseshoe Named to the 2012 Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club

Microsoft recognizes Blue Horseshoe for commitment to customers.

Blue Horseshoe has been named to the 2012 Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club. This achievement is a direct result of Blue Horseshoe’s outstanding dedication to customer satisfaction through the delivery of innovative business solutions.

The Microsoft Dynamics President’s Club honors high-performing Microsoft Dynamics partners with commitments to customers that are reflected in their business success and growth. This prestigious group represents the top 5 percent of Microsoft Dynamics partners worldwide. Membership is granted based on their continual, committed efforts aimed at offering solutions that meet the needs of their customers.

This acknowledgment came during the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2012, the company’s annual premier partner event, which took place this year in Toronto. WPC provides Microsoft Corp.’s partner community with the largest opportunity to learn about the company’s road map for the upcoming year, establish connections, share best practices, experience the latest product innovations and learn new skills.

“Microsoft is proud to recognize Blue Horseshoe for its outstanding sales achievement,” said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Microsoft Dynamics Partners and Support Services. “This honor is a direct reflection of Blue Horseshoe’s outstanding group of employees and management team, all of whom should be very proud of this accomplishment. Blue Horseshoe plays a very important role in the growth and success of Microsoft Dynamics.”

Blue Horseshoe is dedicated to helping customers find the best solutions and services to accommodate their business needs and further their success, while excelling in customer satisfaction. By collaborating with the teams at Microsoft, Blue Horseshoe maintains a comprehensive understanding of the Microsoft Dynamics platform to provide innovative solutions, services and unparalleled value to Microsoft Dynamics customers. Blue Horseshoe was also recently named as the Winner of the 2012 Microsoft Dynamics Distribution Industry Partner of the Year Award, as well as a finalist for the Microsoft Dynamics Regional ISV of the Year (United States) Award.

Blue Horseshoe selects and implements ERP and SCM solutions throughout North America, Latin America, and Europe. Blue Horseshoe’s team of experts help businesses to grow and improve by applying practical and economical tier one solutions with a specific focus on Microsoft Dynamics AX.

In addition, Blue Horseshoe has developed several comprehensive solutions designed to extend the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX. The Supply Chain Suite for Dynamics AX provides “best-of-breed” capabilities around Warehouse Management, Transportation Management, and Supplier Management; all embedded within the Microsoft Dynamics AX framework to create a single Enterprise Distribution Platform.

Microsoft Convergence 2012 Highlights

Just a few highlights from the Blue Horseshoe team on the ground at Convergence 2012…

  • Weren’t able to attend? View the general session key-note speeches on-demand. View Now>
  • There is a new upgrade model for AX 2012, which provides the ability to reduce cut-over time by moving a large amount of data while users are still transacting in the current system.
  • Significant database normalization in AX 2012 expands the number of tables in AX from around 3000 to over 4300. This will pose some challenges in migrating reports while providing an excellent opportunity to take advantage of SQL Reporting Services and enhanced Business Intelligence capabilities of SQL 2012.
  • A key term discussed throughout the event…AOS.NET. An enhanced architecture that not only runs workflow processes in the application server, but also allows X++ developers to turn their code into web services by setting a single attribute.
  • RapidStart services will be available in the cloud, as an intelligent questionnaire experience.
  • Transportation planning has become an even more important topic. With continued increases in fuel prices, transportation contributes even more to the overall cost of servicing customers.
  • Efficient Transportation Spend Management within the global enterprise is a continued hot topic. Blue Horseshoe’s Transportation for AX (TRAX) solution answers this capability and empowers the user to take control of transportation at their fingertips and use within a single system.

Already looking forward to a great event next year? Convergence 2013 will be in New Orleans, Louisiana March 18 – 21, 2013. We hope to see you there! Mark Your Calendar>
