Understanding the Supply Chain: How Microsoft Dynamics Eases the Process

Email | Print

Some of us have a developed knowledge of how the supply chain works, but some of us are on a “need to know” basis. For this blog, I would like to delve into why the process is how it is and especially how Microsoft Dynamics® solutions can make that process easier on everyone involved.

Similar to the food chain, there is a hierarchy of stages in the supply chain. A supply chain is a system of organizations, people, technology, activities, information and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer. There are complex supply chain models and there are simple ones as well. Supply chain activities basically include purchasing, production, distribution, and shipping.  It’s a chain because one step should follow the other for the most effective means of product distribution.

Microsoft Dynamics solutions can provide your people with the tools to plan, coordinate, and execute delivery of goods and services productively, enhancing your existing supply chain:

  • Easy-to-Use: The Microsoft Dynamics’ interface is familiar, consistent, and comfortable—just like that of other Microsoft programs people work with. Microsoft Dynamics also features a design based on business roles, helping team members across the chain to quickly find the tools and information they need the most.
  • Customizable: If you wish to tailor the solutions to your specific business conditions, you can make adjustments using familiar, proven Microsoft development tools. While your supply chain might become complex as your company grows, you can rest assured that you’ve invested in technology that can grow with you. For example, our Operation Suite for Microsoft Dynamics GP enhances daily back office processes.
  • Insightful: Microsoft Dynamics gives people across your supply chain visibility into customer demand and the delivery of goods, helping them make faster, better business decisions and take the best course of action when adjustments are necessary. With features such as automatic notification within Microsoft Dynamics, you easily can keep tabs on inventory, helping sustain optimal item levels without tying up funds in the warehouse.

For more information on how to better streamline your supply chain or if you’re still unsure of how it should work, please feel free to contact our experts at Blue Moon by emailing [email protected] or calling 401.276.9000.
