Successful implementations of these two key technologies can drive costs out of your supply chain execution and improve key metrics such as revenue per employee and cost per business transaction.
If you attended Microsoft’s WPC 2015 last week, you may have noticed it was a different kind of WPC experience, due mostly in part to the focus given to Microsoft Dynamics. It was evident as soon as I started to ride down the convention center escalator that WPC 2015 was all about Dynamics, much more so than it has been in previous years.
