Company and Product Overview

Fullscope EDGE Process Industries Solutions for Microsoft Dynamics AX are an inherent part of Dynamics AX ERP software for companies operating in process industry verticals, and, more specifically, in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, and other areas of manufacturing where recipe-based and formula-based processes are extensively used. For the sake of clarity, this report mainly addresses the Microsoft Dynamics AX solution with a focus on Fullscope's specialization in the process industry.
 
Originally founded in 1999 in Athens, Alabama, Fullscope has been a multi-awarded Microsoft partner and value added reseller (VAR) of Microsoft Dynamics AX products. Having clients within the process manufacturing industry, and, being one of Microsoft’s industry building partners, Fullscope developed its own process manufacturing, process distribution, and total quality management functionality for the AX software that would directly support specific requirements of the industry as the basic product was lacking those. It turned out that the development was so well done that in 2009 Microsoft decided to purchase the source code of those add-on modules from Fullscope and rolled them into the current release of a standard AX solution for all its process industry customers. In the following year Boston-based consulting company Edgewater acquired Fullscope, and since then the vendor has been operating under the name of Edgewater Fullscope. More recently, by July 2012, Fullscope developed two more sets of functionality for Microsoft – Process Industries with Process Industry Accelerator, and more specific functionality for the chemical industry. That upgraded Process Industries (PI2) version of the solution has been purchased by Microsoft again and added to the Microsoft Dynamics 2012 release. Subsequently, that value-added portion of the AX software was primarily within our focus during the TEC software certification process.. Read more
