Microsoft's Buying Some Blue Horseshoe Technology

Today, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) acquired Blue Horseshoe's Warehousing for AX and Transportation for AX solutions. According to a Blue Horseshoe press release, the technology will be used in collaboration with Microsoft's Dynamics AX to provide "industry-specific functionality" to  manufacturing, distribution, and retail industries that use the software.

Blue Horseshoe said its software improves operations such as inventory control; embedded radio frequency; inbound and outbound warehouse operations; rate, route, and load planning; and freight reconciliation.

Microsoft had awarded Blue Horseshoe in the past as a Microsoft Dynamics Distribution Industry Partner of the Year and a Microsoft President's Club Member. 

Chris Cason, president of Blue Horseshoe, said in a statement: "Blue Horseshoe's advanced supply chain solutions not only support our direct customers, but have also proven beneficial to many other Microsoft Partners and their clients. Our company is excited about the collaboration with Microsoft and our ability to continue to grow and advance within the supply chain industry."
The details of the purchase have not yet been made public.
