ATLANTA/Convergence 2011 — April 11, 2011 — Edgewater Fullscope, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Edgewater Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDGW, http://www.edgewater.com), today announced the general availability of its Chemical Accelerator for Microsoft Dynamics AX to deliver additional industry-specific features needed by many chemical manufacturers for more efficient operations. Fullscope has additional accelerators planned for pharmaceutical, life sciences, and food and beverage industries.
The Chemical Accelerator includes functionality to help chemical manufacturers manage active ingredients throughout their operations by enabling them to buy raw materials and cost finished goods more precisely by potency; scale formulas up or down, automatically, by the identification of potent ingredients; track lot inheritance; and define product sequencing, which is evaluated based on multiple characteristics, to reduce downtime and changeover costs in the production schedule. It is integrated with the Process Industry layer of Microsoft Dynamics AX, an industry-specific product that Fullscope originally developed.
"This new product release represents a continuation of our strategy to leverage the intellectual property that we’ve developed for Microsoft, and our commitment to deliver solutions that help manufacturers solve specific industry challenges," said John Scandar, senior vice president of Fullscope. "It also provides the core to build our next round of process industry accelerators— pharmaceutical, life sciences, and food and beverage versions for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012."
Fullscope will sell the Chemical Accelerator directly in North America through its national sales force and worldwide by strategic Microsoft Dynamics AX resellers.
Edgewater Fullscope is an award-winning Microsoft partner and one of the largest resellers of Microsoft Dynamics AX in the United States and Canada. The Company provides enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and implementation services to help process manufacturers improve operational efficiencies, increase operational agility and provide real-time insight into production processes.
