"Process and discrete manufacturers face very different problems," said Russell Smith, Fullscope president and CEO. "Process manufacturers work in a flow-oriented environment, using formulas or recipes to manufacture products that must be produced to exacting standards, tracked continuously and delivered safely to price-conscious customers. Process Industries for Microsoft Axapta is a robust, enterprise system that addresses these specific problems while delivering a very low total cost of ownership."

Process Industries for Microsoft Axapta features a single, three-tiered architecture that enables businesses to customize one tier without affecting functionality of other tiers. The potential risk of customization and upgrades is reduced, helping to ensure a long-term solution with low total cost of ownership. The solutions are fully customizable using X++ or Microsoft .NET code, compliant with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and Oracle database standards, and offer Multisite Enterprise Portal and Commerce Gateway connectivity.
