AX for Retail

AX for Retail is developed on top of the Microsoft Dynamics AX system and its code resides in
the SL1 layer. The data dictionary in Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail mirrors the table structure
in the Retail POS database so mapping data between the two systems is quite easy.

Business Connector

The Business Connector acts as a Microsoft AX Client but without a user interface. This enables
access to data within Microsoft Dynamics AX from external programs such as Retail Store
Connect and Transaction Service.

Retail Store Connect

The Retail Store Connect is a software system that enables optimized data transfer between AX
and POS database governed by rules you set up. The Store Connect optimizes this process by
extracting the dataset only once from the database and sending out multiple copies as needed.

Manual

Page 203

Because the data architecture for the Retail POS is offline architecture (does not have a direct
access to Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail Server database) the Retail POS Transaction Service
provides access to online information when needed or wanted. Getting customer balance, sales
orders, sales invoice information and so on. The Retail POS connects to the Retail POS
Transaction Service which gets any information needed or performs any actions necessary
through the Business Connector.

Retail POS Terminal

Retail POS is a POS system which is fully integrated with Microsoft Dynamics

AX for Retail

creating a powerful end-to-end retail solution.

The terminal is where the POS software is installed along with database and in some instances
the Retail Store Connect.
