HighJump, Microsoft join forces
HighJump Software, a 3M company, will integrate its Supply Chain Advantage suite and Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0, Microsoft’s ERP product. The company said the integration will improve implementation times.
As companies look to combine business processes between the warehouse and back office operations, such systems integrate customer returns, purchase order processing, order fulfillment, quality holds and cycle counting.
“An increasing number of our clients are using Microsoft Dynamics AX, and we needed to support integration to help ensure key supply chain data is transferred throughout their businesses quickly and accurately,” said Joel Levinson, president, HighJump Software. “We’re proud to have worked side-by-side with both Microsoft and Columbus IT during the development process and believe our clients will be very happy with the results.”
