With the new release of Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Cumulative Update 9 (CU9), Microsoft has introduced new features for the Human Resource, Retail, Transportation Management, and Warehouse Management modules. In addition, there have been improvements in the MPOS extensibility and updates for county-specific regions which include Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Europe, Germany, India, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain, UK, and the United States.

Time saving is a consistent theme in CU9, especially in the warehouse management module. AX users can now set up demand replenishment that cross checks "in progress" work that has not been finalized - this is a great check/balance as the existing work can be flagged and used rather than creating new replenishment demand. Both sales and transfer orders now allow you to process a wave that includes multiple shipments, which is helpful for planning waves to destinations. Mobile devices also have new additions which allow you to complete overproduction scenarios efficiently and display lists of open work items which can be configured to filter on various fields and allow the users to select any work displayed on the list to be directed to specific instructions.
