Blue Horseshoe successfully implements AX 2012 R2 Retail for Library of Congress

Blue Horseshoe Solutions, Inc was awarded the opportunity to be the strategic partner to convert the Library of Congress’ retail operations over to the Dynamics AX 2012 R2 retail solution.

Together with a great team of AX Partners (BroadPoint, AXPulse, Dynamics.XPO Consulting) the Library of Congress became the first US Federal government organization to use Microsoft’s Dynamics AX ERP solution.

Visitors to the Capitol Hill area often have a laundry list of things to do and see, including purchasing mementos of their visit or gifts for their loved ones. In 2013, the Library of Congress welcomed more than 1.6 million people through their doors. Long lines are key contributors to customer’s determining whether they end up purchasing an item. Decreasing the customer time at the register is paramount in keeping store lines short. With the implementation of AX retail, the gift shop was able to shorten customer time at the register and immediately saw a significant increase in speed with which transactions can be completed. The fully featured, highly flexible POS solution allowed the software to conform to how the Library of Congress wanted to run their operations, not the other way around. After all, the companies, not the software, know the best way to run their business to accommodate their unique set of business requirements.
