Manufacturers and distributors are only going to get busier as we close in on the hectic holiday shopping season and the last quarter of the year. There is no time to waste and this is not the time to get stuck with an overabundance of inventory. Learn how to stay at peak operational efficiency, maintain lean inventory levels, and optimize profit margins by implementing a robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
Transcribing data between financial, inventory, shipping systems, and customer management solutions is inefficient and distracts your team from other important tasks. In addition, redundant data entry can lead to errors, which can lead to expensive mistakes. As many manufacturers and distributors enter the busiest time of the year, you want to improve productivity, not lose it, and you want to make sure you have the products that customers want to buy as the holidays approach.
Replace disparate software solutions with an integrated ERP solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP and be confident in your business processes as you enter the holiday season. An integrated solution provides a centralized location for all of your business data. You and your team can enter data once and share it between departments for different uses. Manage inventory in real-time, for example, and know what items are promised to customers and what’s available for sale. You can use the business intelligence features to identify trending products. Learn which products may be increasing in popularity and could be big hits this holiday season, and replenish inventory as well as schedule production accordingly. Similarly, if you observe that products could become obsolete, you can use up inventory and prevent overstocking your warehouse with products that you may not sell.
Microsoft Dynamics GP also offers warehouse management features including barcoding, serial control cycle counts, bin locations, and other ways to streamline inventory and warehouse management. Streamline the pick, pack, and ship process to get products shipped to customers as quickly as possible. You can also keep the warehouse organized and efficient as incoming and outgoing boxes stack up.
