Azox First French Site Built on Dynamics GP Now Live!

Azox has successfully completed its first French store for Mitutoyo! This ecommerce website utilizes eSource B2B with a variety of features to sell meteorological testing equipment to customers. One desired feature of this Microsoft Dynamics GP ecommerce solution was a navigable site. To successfully provide smooth navigation and make finding products easier, Mitutoyo needed advanced search capabilities. There are a few features that helped Mitutoyo provide this to customers. First, the company has their inventory organized into a catalog. This catalog groups similar products together based on assigned attributes. To further improve browsing, Mitutoyo also uses filters. Filters allow customers to search for items by specific criteria, like product attributes and features. While browsing this web store, customers will also be presented with related products in order to up sell or cross sell additional items. Mitutoyo’s site also features saved carts, analytics and multi store. Saved carts allow customers to store items in a custom-named cart and access later for purchase. Analytics, allows for tracking of customer behavior within the web store and multi store allows Mitutoyo to have more than one web store, each with a different URL, that all pull data from the same back office.

Another project completion this week for Azox was the launch of an online bill pay site for EZE Castle, a provider of IT services, technology and consulting for hedge funds and alternative investment firms. The online bill pay solution from Azox creates a portal for customers that allows them to view, print and pay invoices online.
