K3 Retail has confirmed its presence in retail by expanding its Dynamics AX practice and joining Microsoft as a launch partner for its latest industry solution; Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail.

 

K3 Retail celebrated the announcement with the first UK win for Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail, at Buy as You View, the UK supplier of consumer retail goods sold on credit basis.

 

The Dynamics AX solution is designed to provide retailers with integrated, adaptable business management solutions to help them make decisions with greater confidence, streamline their business processes and offer customers a more connected experience across channels.

 

Highlighting cross-development expertise

 

“K3 Retail is a trusted retail industry partner for Microsoft and has more than 18 years experience in delivering solutions to international mid market retailers,” said Michael Griffiths, group product manager of retail at Microsoft. “As a Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail launch partner, their expertise in retail implementations and Microsoft platforms is a welcome contribution to our strategy of delivering connected retail experiences, and of great benefit to our mutual customers.

 

Critically, Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail includes intellectual property that Microsoft acquired from LS Retail EHF towards the end of 2009. K3 Retail is a key partner of LS Retail and together they have worked to develop and deliver retail solutions to the UK, Irish and international markets.

 

Colin Bain, K3 managing director, said: “Our market advantage in Microsoft Dynamics AX is clear – as an existing provider of solutions to the mid market and 10 year partner of LS Retail, we can give retailers the broadest and deepest set of solutions based on Microsoft technology.”

 

Another Microsoft partner and retail technology provider, Maginus, also announced last week it had been chosen as another partner, supporting the Dynamics AX for Retail launch.
