Site Services & Commerce Services in AX 2012

Site Services

Organizations can use Sites Services for Microsoft Dynamics ERP to easily build web sites that extend their business processes to the Internet and integrate smoothly with Microsoft Dynamics AX, often with no need for IT support. Before you can use Sites Services, you need to sign up for an account. In many organizations, the IT department or a partner sets up, customizes, and maintains Sites Services.

Microsoft Dynamics AX includes four Sites Services solutions:
  • Online case request – Customer support representatives can accept feedback and questions for case management.

  • Request for quotation – A purchasing agent can post purchasing needs online and vendors can review them and respond with quotations.
  • Unsolicited vendor registration – The purchasing department can accept unsolicited vendor registrations.
You can also create your own Internet-based solutions. Following are some examples:
  • Marketing - Create a marketing campaign that collects and tracks sales leads.
  • Customer service - Publish customer service information and collect customer feedback.

  1. Well said, dynamics ax 2012 is really having a vast role in commerce & site services. Or we can say that it is the backbone of commerce & site services. If this software is not going to be working properly then all the sites specially shopping site can suffer so for running a shopping site properly you must aware about AX 2012 services.

  2. Hi Sandeep, Can I extend the site services to integrate with job portals like Monster, Job Street, etc... I assume integration to existing corporate website is straight forward.
