Microsoft acquires Blue Horseshoe Warehouse, Transportation Management solutions for Dynamics AX

July 8 2013

Microsoft announced that it has acquired Blue Horseshoe's Warehousing for AX (WAX) and Transportation for AX (TRAX) solutions.  The announcement confirms a long suspected move dating back to Convergence 2013, related to the AX team's plans to roll out  warehouse and transportation feature packs for Dynamics AX 2012 R2

"This technology will help Microsoft accelerate its Microsoft Dynamics AX supply chain management roadmap with plans to make the functionality available to the broader Dynamics AX channel partner and customer community," Blue Horseshoe wrote in a blog post announcing the acquisition.

Features of WAX and TRAX include:

  • Improved Inventory Control
  • Embedded Radio Frequency
  • Improved Inbound & Outbound Warehouse Operations
  • Rate, Route and Load Planning
  • Freight Reconciliation

Blue Horseshoe will continue to compete in the market with its more advanced offerings, Advanced WAX -Warehouse Management for AX and Advanced TRAX - Transportation Management for AX, which are designed to further extend the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX and the base features of WAX and TRAX.
