Taken from the Microsoft Site for those like me who are not familiar with Axapta.
Designed for mid-size and larger companies, Microsoft Business Solutions–Axapta is a multilanguage, multicurrency enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. Its core strengths are in manufacturing and e-business, and it includes strong functionality for the wholesale and services industries.
At a glance
Microsoft Axapta includes applications for financial management, customer relationship management, supply chain management, human resource management, project management, and analytics.
Because it integrates with widely-familiar Microsoft products—such as Microsoft SQL Server, BizTalk Server, Exchange, Office, and Windows—employees can work with the tools they are likely to be already familiar with, lowering training costs.
The solution is supplied through a worldwide network of channel partners that provide specialized services and local support tailored to your unique needs.
