Supply Chain in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Product-centric companies in manufacturing and distribution are customer-focused businesses. With so many moving parts, products, and calculations needed to manage inventory, shipments, and more, you can’t rely on outdated or underpowered products to manage your business.

Microsoft has announced a new product for small and medium businesses in need of ERP for their product-centric focus. Featuring financial management, CRM, operations, and supply chain, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is an integrated platform that allows growing businesses to leverage the power of the cloud and the stability of Microsoft Dynamics NAV to improve business results.

Fully integrated with other applications in the Dynamics 365 Business Central, supply chain management is designed to deliver the functionality needed to optimize inventory, reduce shortages, and maximize profitability.

Optimize Inventory: Know what you have and when to order new products in real time. With built-in business intelligence, you can predict when you need to replenish, what you need to replenish, and when you should prepare for increased demand. Track trends, identify problem areas, and make your inventory go further with smarter purchase and order management.

Increase Profitability: Order at the right time, pay at the right time. With Business Central Supply Chain Management, this product can notify you on the best time to pay vendors so that you can increase your discount capture rate, improve supplier relationships, and avoid unnecessary penalties or interest. Further, with advanced analytics built into the supply chain product and workflows, you can take steps to prevent unnecessary or fraudulent payments to suppliers.

Streamline Sales Orders: With advanced integrations and business intelligence from the Business Central Supply Chain, you can empower your sales team and inventory by shortening the path from order to cash. Leverage built-in integration with the Business Central Customer Management functionality, or integrate it with your choice of CRM.
