If you are interested in seeing how you can set up the Sales and Marketing area of Dynamics AX to turn it into your very own integrated XRM system, then you are in luck – I have just released volume #14 or my Dynamics AX 2012 Barebones Configuration Guides series which focuses on configuring the Sales And Marketing area within Dynamics AX which gives you a general overview and step by step instructions to set up most of its features and functions. Within the 566 pages I cover:

I don’t usually talk about add-on products for Dynamics AX because I am a firm believer that almost everything you could ever need in in the product already, but every now and then I have to make an exception. And recently I have added AXTension ECM to my very small list of must have products for any Dynamics AX installation.

I feel so dirty right now, as if I’m cheating on Dynamics AX, but I can’t help myself. I just love, love, love this product!

I have created a few reference books that are available on Amazon that combine all of the information I post about into an easy to reference and lightweight format.  When working through some of the more lengthy configurations these are a much better resource than the blog posts.  Also, as I compiled these I was able to add additional notes and sections that you were not in the original posts, so you may find even more useful information in them.

You can view my Author page on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Murray-Fife/e/B00G9CNJPQ also, you here are links to all of my books by series.

At Convergence this year I rolled out a book with 50 Tips & Tricks for Dynamics AX that seemed to go down really well with everyone – hopefully not just because I was giving away copies for free 😉

This week, I hit milestone, and realized that I had enough content for a second volume of trips and tricks and have compiled them into a new book. Just like the other book, this one contains 50 more tips and tricks for dynamics AX ranging from UI tips, to functional tricks that you all may find interesting. Additionally, there is a new section in this book dedicated to Workflow, and how you can tweak workflows to get the most out of Dynamics AX.

If your are interested in taking a look, then you can see it on the CreateSpace here: https://www.createspace.com/4721214 and it should also be available on Amazon within 5…

CoverWhenever I give an overview presentation of Dynamics AX to new customers or prospects, I always start off with a general foundation review – sometimes called a “Cooking Demo” paying respect to Julia Childs who always had everything prepared beforehand.  Usually this is also accompanied by a PowerPoint with all of the scenarios laid out in it for reference.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take this to the next level, and rather than hand out PowerPoint decks, format the cooking demo into a book, and give it to people during the demonstration as a reference that they will put on their bookshelf rather than loose within the other pile of PowerPoints that they receive… and also I worked out that this is less expensive (even though the quality is better) than printing out the PowerPoints.

I also decided to make it available to everyone as a quick reference on what you can do with Dynamics AX and posted it to Amazon at the lowest possible price that Amazon would allow after they take their cut on the royalties and also print the book.
