Reduce costs, improve quality, satisfy customer needs, increase profits. These are but a few challenges manufacturers face in today’s marketplace.
With increasing demands from stockholders and global partners, boosting manufacturing efficiency and production has become imperative. It is where an integrated manufacturing solution like Dynamics NAV can assist to help your business plan operations, manage production and shipping, and forecast sales figures.
We have selected a few challenges most manufacturers can relate to, looking at how Dynamics NAV can deliver value in these scenarios.
Fulfilment refers to the complete process from the point of sales inquiry to the product delivery to the customer. It represents the way the manufacturer responds to customer orders and proceeds with distribution. With complex global distribution networks, fulfilment is no easy task.
The solution is a comprehensive warehouse management functionality capable of handling all customer demands. Through its functionality, Dynamics NAV makes provisions for order flexibility and fast response to delivery changes, rush orders, or last-minute requests.
It works the way you want! Microsoft Dynamics NAV looks and works like Microsoft Office which means that you can get to work immediately with no change-over delays. It is also role-tailored to give employees relevant insights for their day-to-day work with accurate and instantaneous information. Data that is so readily available can solve not only today’s problems but also plan for tomorrow. With its cloud and on-premise deployment, you also have the flexibility to choose to work when and where you want – at the office, at home, or on the road.
Manufacturers creating made-to-order products with specific configuration face different challenges. A powerfully integrated product configurator can assist made-to-order businesses with the best outcome based on their specific requirements.
Furthermore, a fully integrated configurator can reduce costs, minimise errors, and decrease order processing times. Dynamic NAV includes this important functionality.
Manufacturers have to improve current processes while keeping an eye on changing market demands and potential expansions into new markets. This exercise often means rethinking delivery methods, supply chains, and logistics.
Reacting quickly, analysing every possible expansion scenario, and making decisions based on intelligent data, rather than solely gut and instincts, is possible with Dynamics NAV.
Electronic Data Interchange
EDI is a fundamental method for document exchange in the manufacturing and warehouse industry, namely the collection of electronic formats such as invoices, purchase orders, and shipment notices.
EDI functionality is critical for the success of the supply chain, and for complying with trading partner requirements. Dynamics NAV comes with complete EDI integration. Hence there is no need for any third-party processing software to comply with EDI requirements. EDI messages can be sent to trading partners in Flat File, XLM or XSLT formats.
