CARMEL, Ind. (September 14, 2011) – Carmel-headquartered Blue Horseshoe announces its latest version of Dynamics AX 2.4 Transportation for AX (TRAX) has been successfully Certified for Microsoft Dynamics AX (CfMD), a leading enterprise resource planning software that focuses on manufacturing, e-business, wholesale and services for midsize and larger companies. This prestigious certification means this solution has met Microsoft Corporation’s highest standard for partner-developed software solutions; it has been designed to meet unique business and industry needs, tested for integration with the Microsoft Dynamics product, used and recommended by other companies, and professionally implemented and systematically supported.

TRAX was developed by Blue Horseshoe’s Intellectual Property group to embed advanced industry-specific transportation planning and execution functionality directly into the business layer of Dynamics AX’s architecture. This significantly benefits customers because it offers identical performance, processing and file structure as Dynamics AX, and doesn’t require synchronization, batching or reconciliation of data. Using TRAX, users can efficiently select, route, and schedule carriers, manage contracts, receive status updates and reconcile freight without using a separate Transportation Management System (TMS).

TRAX is one of several module solutions in Blue Horseshoe’s Supply Chain Suite for Dynamics AX. It can be implemented with Dynamics AX alone, or in conjunction with Blue Horseshoe’s other supply chain solutions: Warehousing for AX (WAX), Business Intelligences as a Service (BIAS) and Vendor Portal.

“TRAX is a great solution for customers because it embeds functionality directly into their Dynamics AX system creating a single solution for greater efficiency and accuracy,” explained Kevin Paul, vice president of Blue Horseshoe.

Kyle Pettine, chief operations officer at Forney Industries added, “Using two interface systems, ERP and warehouse and transportation management caused many issues, such as out of synch data which required a lot of manual reconciliation. Now, with one system and a completely paperless environment, we have redefined how we work.”
