It’s one thing to collect mountains of data about every facet of your business. It’s another to use that data to improve productivity, profitability, and growth. Collect and organize data in your ERP software and use that information to drive your business.
Many businesses are looking to ERP software to get them positioned as leaders in their marketplace. However, simply having ERP software is not the answer alone. You need to know how to use the data you collect to make the meaningful decisions that will make your business more successful than the rest. Comprehensive ERP solutions like Microsoft Dynamics® GP can deliver both data organization and business intelligence in a way that is easy to use and understand.
Microsoft Dynamics GP doesn’t just store data; it connects data so that you see relationships between financial management, supply chain, manufacturing, sales and marketing, project management, and other business operations. Once you can see how different facets of your operations affect the bottom line, then you can begin to streamline operations and improve productivity.
The RoleTailored pages and dashboards make the software easy to use so that people can keep up to date on their data entry. With all of the data in a single software platform, employees can route and share information or simply look up what they need — no delays, no searching or waiting for data to be compiled. Having access to real-time data will enable you to make quick decisions, respond to new opportunities, and head off problems before they become a crisis.
The Business Analyzer features in Microsoft Dynamics GP will help you find the critical information needed to make decisions. You can use any number of the built-in reports or customize your own to get the exact data you need, when you need it. The advanced analytics and predictive modeling features built in Microsoft Dynamics GP will maximize profitability by identifying your best product lines or services and top customers. You also can use your data to control inventory levels, optimize planning and scheduling, or to streamline operations. Turn on notifications and be alerted when metrics are being met, automate approval routings, and use other checks and balances to make sure things are being done on time and on budget.
Like other ERP software, Microsoft Dynamics GP can safely organize all of your critical business data into a single location. However, it takes you a step further by providing advanced analytical features that will give you added control and insight into business operations. Don’t just store data; use it to become more efficient, productive, and profitable. Please contact The Resource Group for more information on Microsoft Dynamics GP and its business intelligence and reporting capabilities.
