At the same time, Microsoft Dynamics AX was chosen as the underlying ERP and technology platform.

Due to years of experience with different market parties, the unique data model of MECOMS™ and the concept of Business Blueprints, customers can rest assured that changes in the market are continuously monitored and implemented in the standard product.
