Connect the Dots Between Financials, Inventory and EDI

Email | Print

Time seems to fly when you are busy doing something important like running a successful business.  After a few years of dedicated focus to your product offerings, operations, and customer satisfaction, we tend to forget about the technology behind the scenes.  Business technology is constantly changing and if you aren’t keeping up, your technology may eventually hold you back.

Years ago you may have invested in state-of-the-art accounting software and possibly an inventory solution, both of which may have been helpful at that time.  Then came along the need to use electronic data interchange (EDI) technology, which is often required by big-box corporations for tracking orders.  The specialty programs may be working individually, but your data is captured separately and as a result, you don’t have insight into productivity or profitability.  Disparate systems also cause bottlenecks with data-sharing and require people to enter data repeatedly into one system then another, which introduce many risks.  Not only do you end up with old data, you may be using inaccurate data to make important business decisions.  In addition, it becomes time-consuming to close month-end, quarter-end, and eventually year-end comes around and it’s even harder to close the books without correcting errors and making adjustments.

If you have been growing faster than your business technology, then get your technology to catch up and connect the dots.  NAV-X for distribution is based on the Microsoft Dynamics® ERP platform and offers everything that a successful distribution or manufacturing operation needs to boost productivity and profitability.  You can control inventory, use EDI to track orders, and monitor financials all from the same software solution.  Important business data is all entered into the same program and can be shared throughout your business.  Use contract data to process a customer order, as well as an invoice.  This automation will improve productivity from the front office to the back warehouse.  Most importantly, you can monitor real-time financials, as well as quickly and easily produce month-end, quarter-end, and year-end reports in accordance with general accounting standards.

Your business may be growing too fast for your business software to keep up.  Don’t let your technology hold you back.  Contact us for more information about integrating financials, inventory, and EDI with a comprehensive ERP solution and distribution solution.
