Manufacturers, by the pure nature of what they do, require very specific software applications to run their businesses.  When you drop to an industry level, the special requirements lists for both get even longer.

That’s why Fullscope has announced a new series of solutions designed to extend functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AX enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Microsoft Dynamics CRM to help solve specific manufacturing challenges.

Unveiled at Convergence 2013 in New Orleans, Fullscope EDGE Industry Solutions for Microsoft Dynamics AX will include software for chemical, life sciences, pharmaceutical, food and consumer product goods (CPG) manufacturers that build on and extend the industry functionality available in the core Microsoft system. The first solution, EDGE for Life Sciences & Pharma, will address core issues that life sciences and pharmaceutical manufacturers face, including Corrective Actions & Preventive Actions (CAPA); electronic device history records; enhanced eSignatures; flexible sampling plans; approved customer lists; vendor scorecards and validation requirements. Fullscope will continue to invest in and release new solutions for food, chemical, CPG and industrial manufacturers.
