Leveraging Technology in Retail
Technology is moving fast, and as Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Enterprise is introducing new ways of doing business, it’s crucial that software companies not only focus on meeting current industry requirements but also continually look for ways to leverage retail knowledge in the development of those technologies.
How Dynamics Users Benefit from MAX Essentials
In addressing the Matrix view and availability in Dynamics 365|AX, Retail Realm has also introduced operational improvements – the most important of which is local availability at the store without having to rely on Dynamics’ real-time call to 365|AX to see local availability.
This means the ability to:
- Improve speed for inventory lookup
- Search the store by all item attributes
- Block sales of items that have no availability
- See price, availability and additional item information all on one screen

The Matrix functionality in MAX Essentials is especially important to the fashion industry, as much of their inventory is Matrix items. A matrix ‘style’ is a grouping of matrix items; each matrix item has its own assigned attributes such as: Size, Color, Fit, Season, Manufacturer, Supplier, Brand, etc. The Matrix functionality enables retailers to view two of these attributes as a grid, while the remaining attributes can be a filter and thereby reducing the selection results.
