SO99AX Reaches Milestone Towards Achieving Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) Accreditation

SO99AX Integration Software Passes Microsoft Test

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) - ToolsGroup, a global provider of supply chain planning (SCP) and inventory optimization solutions, today announced that the Dynamics AX integration for SO99AX has reached an important milestone towards achieving the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD) accreditation. The portion of SO99AX that integrates to Dynamics AX, known as SO99AXi, has passed the Software Solution Test for Microsoft Dynamics, which is a major requirement for Certified for Microsoft Dynamics® status.

SO99AX is a demand planning and inventory optimization solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX first introduced at Convergence Atlanta 2010. SO99AXi was created by MHT, a Microsoft Gold Partner, and ToolsGroup's partner in developing and deploying SO99AX.

Certified for Microsoft Dynamics is Microsoft Corp.'s highest standard for partner-developed software. Solutions with a successful software test have demonstrated development quality and compatibility with the Microsoft Dynamics product. VeriTest, a service of Lionbridge, performed independent and rigorous testing on the solution's integration with Microsoft Dynamics.

"By requiring the software solution to meet our highest standards, Microsoft is assuring customers that these certified solutions work with their investments in Microsoft Dynamics," said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Microsoft Dynamics Partners.

SO99AX offers three important supply chain planning functions; demand planning and collaboration, inventory optimization and replenishment planning. These modules can be purchased separately, or rolled out over time, depending on a firm's needs.

SO99AX automatically senses the demand signal and demand variability, understands its statistical nature, and propagates it across the multi-echelon supply chain in a precise and reliable way. It helps Microsoft Dynamics customers generate reliable forecasts, accurately and robustly model inventory behavior at each node in the network, and eliminate excessive noise in the supply chain.
