Supply Chain Management has come a long way in the past few years thanks to advanced Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. But what does the future hold for manufacturers in 2012? This year, spend less time planning and more time manufacturing by increasing visibility and control over your supply chain.
Managing the supply chain is a tricky balancing act fraught with factors often outside of your control that influence the ability to provide quality products to customers on time. Make this the year that you minimalize extenuating factors and increase control over the supply chain through the use of powerful ERP software like Microsoft Dynamics® GP. Used to manage core business capabilities including finances, manufacturing, project and service management, human resources and payroll, Microsoft Dynamics GP can be the keystone in finding balance within your supply chain.
The greater the insight you have into your supply chain, the better you’ll be able to service customers and improve your profitability. Microsoft Dynamics GP offers superior organization of key business data as well as the ability to monitor sales data, inventory, production operations, and shipments. This real time information will give you the insight you need to streamline procurement, production schedules, and shipments so you can provide products to your customers on time and as ordered with greater profitability. Spot trends in product sales and customer needs to optimize inventory levels and be prepared to manufacture orders more efficiently. Maintain the inventory you need to satisfy customer demand without tying up cash in excess inventory. With Microsoft Dynamics GP, you can speed up the approval process from contract to production and shipments, eliminate common bottlenecks, and reduce handling times whether you have a single location or multiple warehouses.
Like other Microsoft products, Microsoft Dynamics GP is easy to use, which will encourage rapid adoption and a quick return on investment once deployed. Scalable to meet the unique needs of your manufacturing operations, Microsoft Dynamics GP is affordable for almost any budget. Spend less time planning and more time manufacturing the products that keep your customers coming back for more.
