More than 90% of Distributors Consider Information Technology a Critical Component of Business Operations
Posted Thursday, February 23, 2012 by Peter Kelly
A recent Manufacturing and Wholesale Distribution Survey indicated one of the top 3 critical areas of technology needs for manufacturers and distributors is operational and process improvement. Microsoft Dynamics GP provides significant operational improvement for distribution companies by fully integrating data throughout the organization, and providing ease of access to information through common tools such as Excel, Outlook, and Sharepoint.
Distributors and manufacturers of any size can now take advantage of integrated credit card processing, bar coding, and shipping to automate their order taking and fulfillment. Integrated demand planning and forecasting tools can also be used to plan purchasing and manufacturing. As companies continue to rely more on outsourced and/or global aspects of their manufacturing and distribution processes, instant and accurate information has become critical in maintaining profitability and managing inventory levels. Microsoft Dynamics GP, will add greater ease and simplicity to these capabilities by using incorporating email notifications into invoices, packing slips, and vendor payments. Microsoft Word will be used for formatting invoices and other forms to provide customers with the greatest degree of flexibility and control over their systems and customer communications.
