Enterprise resource planning software improves an organization’s internal operations. Many companies turn to Microsoft Dynamics GP Manufacturing to manage their finances, manage inventory and monitor workflow processes.
The same data that provides visibility for a business’s managers and supervisors can also give clients and business partners the information they need to work with a particular manufacturer through automated reporting or web portals. Microsoft Dynamics GP improves inventory visibility, payment records and messaging services to improve business communications.
When selecting a manufacturer, consumers want as much information as possible that speaks to the quality of the company’s customer service and the products they build. Business partners want to have visibility to operations to monitor inventory levels and purchasing information which can make their partnerships most successful.
Demand Media suggested vendors or suppliers that have access to inventory and production information can become valuable assistants in ensuring materials never come up short. Partners who are working off a single data platform won’t miscommunicate needs and can create mutually beneficial purchasing schedules.
To create an accurate picture, additional software and devices can be implemented to improve the speed at which employees capture manual activities. Barcoding systems like Appolis put software capabilities into the hands of the workers walking the warehouse or production supervisors monitoring the shop floor. Constant real-time data sent directly from the heart of production prevents mistakes and improves timeliness of information.
Money can be an irritant in the formation and maintenance of working partnerships. Accuracy is the best way to fight discrepancies, and constant communication helps prevent misunderstandings.
Microsoft Dynamics GP has features to ensure payments are on time and secure. Automated electronic payments can be scheduled through the software and logged so any issues can be backtracked.
Regularly scheduled payments improve B2B operations by making sure exchanges are made on time and through preferred mediums. Dynamics University, in a blog featured on the Microsoft Dynamics GP Community, explained automated financial transactions within the software are secure and meet Payment Application Data Security Standard regulations.
When working with invoices, it is always a best practice to note every detail and instantly inquire about issues that come up. A complete data trail about all financial activities prevents customer complaints and vendor issues.
All work orders, contracts, invoices and messages created in Microsoft Dynamics GP can be shared with outside parties. Even if clients or partners are not using Dynamics GP, the information from the system can still be delivered in a way that is readable on most electronic options or printed as a hard copy.
Liaison Messenger EDD is one of the fastest and easiest ways to communicate information from Dynamics GP. Messenger EDD allows companies to batch emails, invoices, statements and quotes for clients and partners. Messenger EDD works with most Dynamics GP modules, including Project Accounting. It allows the user to attach variable or static documents with each communication and route messaging as needed. Messenger EDD is easy to learn and implement in ongoing operations.
