It quickly becomes apparent when speaking to Vanit Kumar, CEO of i95Dev, that the rationale behind his company joining the “AX Alliance” is “you’ve got to be in it to win it”. It is one thing to have developed effective ecommerce solutions for the Microsoft Dynamics full range of products for retailers, as is the case with i95Dev, but another entirely to get the word out about your next-generation integrated solution for prospective clients. Becoming an active participant in the AX Alliance will be a key part of the company’s new business development strategy, whether that involves holding webinars targeted at Retail Realm’s extensive reseller and retail end-user networks worldwide, exhibiting at the annual Retail Realm Microsoft Dynamics Retail conference in Las Vegas (24—26 April 2014), or becoming involved in trade shows and other co-op events, organised under the “AX Alliance” umbrella.
i95Dev’s latest product launch is a response to the realization that the next generation of e-commerce is fundamentally changing everything about how business is done. As consumers, suppliers and resellers gain confidence in e-commerce, they have become used to its convenience and businesses have benefited from its competitive advantages. As a result, the online company store is rapidly becoming the primary external interface to the outside world. However, to effectively engage with customers, it must be open and flexible to adapt to the rapidly evolving purchasing and procuring trends.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, i95Dev has helped more than 1,500 brands worldwide build the seamless shopping experiences their customers have come to expect. Its newly unveiled E-Commerce Growth Engine, or “EGE,” powered by Magento, allows a business to quickly establish or augment their online store(s) and leverage multiple channels – including web stores, mobile devices, social media and third-party online market places such as eBay, Amazon & Rakuten. Additionally, the EGE integrates seamlessly with the entire Microsoft Dynamics product line (RMS, AX, GP, NAV) as well as other critical backend systems. No matter the multichannel point of sale, the EGE provides the omni-channel user experience, which today’s retail customers demand. i95Dev carefully selected Magento – an open-source platform – as its chosen ecommerce engine with this in mind. No proprietary platform can adapt as quickly and effectively as open-source to the ever-changing demands of the digital landscape.
Especially attractive to retailers using i95Dev’s EGE solution, is its automation of everything from educating the customer, through qualifying them, making a pitch (with offers), taking orders, checking credit, taking payments, scheduling shipping, verifying delivery and providing customer support. This automation, and the associated shift toward self-service, offers retailers the opportunity to make immense savings on sales and operational staff as well as on costs associated with inventory and shipping. Suppliers and wholesalers will also benefit from the real-time synchronization that prevents ordering and delivery mishaps by maintaining up-to-the-minute inventory information on both the Magento store and ERP.
“i95Dev’s understanding and grasp of the pitfalls in retail and of the areas where retailers most need help through automation is evident from their attention to detail and the way their E-Commerce Growth Engine solution has been structured. The benefits their solution offers are too numerous to mention but worthy of further investigation,”
Vanit Kumar also looks forward to his company’s participation in the AX Alliance: “i95Dev is committed to growth through partners. Therefore, we take a proactive approach in helping partners identify opportunities, build internal expertise and win new clients,” and encourages other companies who have something to offer the AX community to join the “AX Alliance.”
