Nivel Parts & Manufacturing Company Selects Blue Horseshoe for Warehouse Management and Transportation Management Solutions

CARMEL, IN--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - Nivel Parts & Manufacturing Company, based in Jacksonville, Fla., has selected Blue Horseshoe, a software development and solutions firm headquartered in Carmel, Ind. to implement two of Blue Horseshoe's Intellectual Property (BHIP) solutions to extend supply chain management capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX, a leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. Blue Horseshoe will implement:

  • Warehousing for AX (WAX), a module solution that embeds advanced supply chain capabilities into the Dynamics AX ERP System to significantly extend warehousing functionality without using a separate Warehouse Management System (WMS); and

  • Transportation for AX (TRAX), a module solution that further extends the functionality of Dynamics AX by seamlessly providing advanced transportation planning and execution capabilities, such as carrier selection, routing, scheduling, contract management, status updates and freight reconciliation.

By embedding industry-specific extended functionality directly into the business layer of Dynamics AX's architecture, BHIP's WAX and TRAX solutions offer identical performance, processing and file structure as Dynamics AX. No synchronization, batching or reconciliation of data is required, and the solutions are certified for every release version of Dynamics AX.

"As both a manufacturer and a distributor, Nivel needs solutions that will streamline their entire business," said Kevin Paul, vice president of Blue Horseshoe. "We are pleased they have chosen Blue Horseshoe's WAX and TRAX solutions to meet their goals."

"As we looked at various providers and applications, we evaluated both best-of-breed and embedded solutions," added William G. Bugg, president and chief executive officer, Nivel Holdings, LLC. "In the end, we were sold on the benefits having WAX and TRAX embedded within Dynamics AX because it creates a single system solution that provides all the information we need."

The first phase of implementation will be complete Q4 2011 with full go-live scheduled for Q1 2012.
