Accellos Inc., a provider of supply chain execution software solutions, announced that it is building on its solutions for third-party logistics providers by unveiling AccellosOne 3PL for Microsoft Dynamics. AccellosOne 3PL for Microsoft Dynamics is designed to complement Microsoft’s strong financial capabilities by automating the key functions that drive success for a 3PL:
