Junction Solutions and Maginus Announce a Strategic Partnership

Two Microsoft Gold Certified Partners, Junction Solutions and Maginus, have formed a new alliance to provide enhanced software solutions built in Microsoft Dynamics® AX to multi-channel retailers and distributors in Europe. Maginus is now the exclusive sales and support provider in the United Kingdom and Ireland for JunctionMCR™, a scalable, seamless end-to-end solution, designed to drive exceptional customer engagements and business growth across all retail channels, including catalog, online, mobile, and retail stores.


Junction Solutions is a U.S. based, leading provider of vertical-specific on-premise and on-demand software applications and services for the multi-channel retail, distribution, and food & beverage industries. Maginus  is a UK-based provider of software solutions that enable wholesale distributors, retailers and mail-order companies to increase sales, improve customer service and build long-lasting relationships.


“Today’s retailers are seeking to provide a personal, seamless and differentiated experience for customers,” said Michael Griffiths, global director for retail and distribution for Microsoft.  “Retailers need to be very dynamic, positioning themselves to connect to customers without compromise, seamlessly across all their channels to ensure personalized service.  To meet this demand, Microsoft Dynamics Retail is proud to be collaborating with a global community of partners. The new alliance between Junction Solutions and Maginus is a strong example.  Both companies have deep expertise in the multi-channel retail market and understand the complexities of delivering the finest customer experience across all retail channels.”


“Junction Solutions makes careful, strategic decisions about selecting its partners,” said Jeff Grell, Junction Solutions’ CEO and president. “We were impressed with Maginus’ 30-year history of working with UK retailers and their knowledge of the industry. Their expertise in the retail arena mirrors our own. Now, as the exclusive provider of JunctionMCR in the UK and Ireland, Maginus will be able to offer new and existing customers a simple, agile and flexible solution that provides real-time business intelligence to the retailer and delivers a synergistic, cross-channel experience for their customers. JunctionMCR gives retailers that critical 360-degrees of visibility across the entire value chain, and the solution’s functionality addresses requirements ranging from merchandising and customer service to order management and fulfillment.”


“Retailers in the UK are expanding from traditional brick-and-mortar stores and paper catalogues to online and mobile channels,” said Simon Weeks, Maginus CEO. “Maginus understands how to integrate sales channels to provide a consistent and positive customer experience and drive brand adoption, loyalty and trust. We worked closely with Microsoft on the launch of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 for Retail and believe it is by far the leading solution available today. As the UK’s exclusive provider of JunctionMCR, we now offer our retail customers a fully-integrated, easy-to-use solution, with the flexibility to scale their various channels and meet the ever-changing needs of their customers, resulting in increased sales and market share.”


Under the agreement, Maginus will also sell and support Junction Solutions’ other proprietary offerings, including the JunctionFB™ portfolio, the company’s enterprise-class, field-to-fork solution set for the food and beverage industry that streamlines operations and visibility from supply point of origin through manufacturing and distribution.
