Manufacturers and distributors have a lot of moving parts in their business operations. In addition to the critical finances that every business has to cope with, there is the supply chain and ever-changing inventory to manage, manufacturing activities, transportation issues, and a variety of customers from direct-to-consumer to wholesale customers to keep satisfied. Keeping track of this data is challenging enough but made worse by using multiple, disparate software solutions. Connect all of these moving parts in a single solution and set your business up for growth.
It is not unusual for businesses to opt for specialty software to manage various parts of their enterprise. There are accounting programs, inventory programs, and many other individual software programs that can effectively manage the bits and pieces of a business. While they may be fairly easy to use and manage data effectively, they don’t often work well together. As a result, your business data is separated into silos making it difficult to get the information you need in a timely manner. As the business grows, and there is even more data to manage, these entry-level solutions become bogged down and even more inefficient. Don’t get strangled by your own software, implement an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
An integrated ERP solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP, can satisfy the same management needs as your disparate solutions but with greater efficiency. You can manage your finances, supply chain, inventory, manufacturing and distribution activities, human resources and payroll, and other core business functions from this single software solution. You can access your data faster when it’s located in one spot instead of several. In addition, like other commonly used Microsoft products, Microsoft Dynamics GP is easy to learn and easy to use. You can have quick access to accurate, real-time data which you can use to make improvements throughout your business. The business intelligence and robust reporting features offered in Microsoft Dynamics GP will also provide greater insight into your operations. Getting closer to your data will give you greater control over your supply chain, keep inventory levels on target, and help you monitor the products that sell faster than others.
Gain control and visibility by implementing an integrated ERP solution that is more efficient than the tangled web of disparate software. Contact The Resource Group for more information about using ERP to support business growth.
