SEATTLE, WA and MAISONS-LAFFITTE, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Jul 15, 2013) - Avanade, a global business technology solutions and managed services provider, and TVH Consulting, an ERP solutions expert in the multichannel distribution space, announced the signing of a global distribution agreement. The contract focuses on the distribution and integration of TVH's Advanced Distribution for Microsoft Dynamics AX (ADAX) solution into Avanade's Dynamics AX offering for wholesale distributors globally. This partnership brings together Avanade's extensive knowledge of Microsoft's Dynamics AX ERP technology and global reach with TVH Consulting's multichannel distribution expertise. By signing this agreement, the partnership will enable both companies to better serve wholesale distributors, retailers and distribution-focused manufacturers globally while maintaining an expert level of regional knowledge. The agreement will also make Avanade one of the largest global implementation partners for ADAX to deliver customer results worldwide.

ADAX is a vertical solution based on Microsoft Dynamics AX technology and is specifically designed to cover advanced distribution requirements for Food & Beverage, Life Sciences, Consumer Goods and Distance Selling companies. It offers more than 100 functional additions to enrich standard Microsoft Dynamics AX and covers five main areas: Sales & Marketing, Procurement, Forecast and Schedules, Warehouse Management and Supply, and Transportation Management. ADAX is now an integrated part of Avanade's existing ERP solution for customers who want to optimize, their corporate, back office and supply chain operations to boost their competitiveness overall.

"One of our main goals at Avanade is helping our customers respond more easily to the needs and challenges of their markets," said François Matte, Avanade Sr. Vice President, Global Dynamics AX. "This partnership will allow Avanade to provide extended functional coverage to our customers in the multi-channel distribution field, globally."

Competition is fierce and major retailers and wholesalers are moving distribution in-house. Supply chains are becoming more complex by the day and customers are demanding lower prices, faster deliveries, re-packaging of goods and customizations, which puts serious pressure on profit margins. By integrating the ADAX module into Avanade's Dynamics AX offering for wholesale distributors, customers will now be able to access a truly integrated and comprehensive agile ERP solution that covers the full range of industry needs of large enterprises including complex multichannel supply chain challenges.

"We believe the features of our ADAX solution will meet all needs of multichannel distribution players," says Guy Tubiana, CEO of TVH Consulting. "This, combined with Avanade's technical expertise, industry acumen and global presence, will enable us to better serve our international customers."

ADAX is used by internationally renowned companies like Pierre Fabre, Fleury Michon, Florette and Septodont.
