Companies in the distribution market face various challenges which require the continuous optimisation of the Supply Chain Management (SCM) process to ensure maximum efficiency and flexibility to address specific business requirements.
In this blog, we look at key requirements concerning supply chain management.
Strategise operations across the supply chain
The first requirement of supply chain management is to understand the interconnecting processes, which is why an accurate mapping of all operations across the entire supply chain is highly effective.
If your business is not capable of having an overall picture of the value chain and strategising its movements to the best of its capabilities, the risk of manual errors, poor communications and failure is high and detrimental to the business.
An integrated Supply Chain Management system that provides a strategic mapping of the entire supply chain process – such as Dynamics 365 Business Central, formerly known as Dynamics NAV – puts things into perspective, ensuring more visibility and efficiency in the supply chain.
Control and customise workflows
Another key requirement of supply chain management is ensuring smooth processes in purchasing, sales, manufacturing, logistics and warehouse.
When businesses can adjust and control the workflows supporting its processes and customise these to specific requirements, the supply chain becomes more efficient, flexible and adaptable to rapid changes in the marketplace.
The flexible Supply Chain Management process in Dynamics 365 Business Central allows better workflow customisation. As a result, procurement, processing and delivery times are reduced and optimised.
Key functionality in Dynamics 365 Business Central is available with the Essential licence and includes scheduling and purchasing functions, inventory and warehouse location management, item tracking, as well as a comprehensive overview of different organisations and warehouse structures to allow better integration and customisation.
