(Nasdaq:EDGW) and leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX and CRM solutions to manufacturers, has announced the availability of Fullscope EDGE for AX, the latest industry solution designed to complement existing functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 enterprise resource planning (ERP) for chemical, life sciences, pharmaceutical, food, medical device and consumer product goods (CPG) manufacturers.
