Why Distribution Companies Should Choose Microsoft Dynamics GP Software


    Email | Print

    There are software solutions specifically designed for distribution companies. They may be rich in industry features but many are not also strong in financial features. Surely your distribution company needs a solution that is strong in both areas. That is why we recommend Microsoft Dynamics GP for distribution companies.

    Microsoft Dynamics GP has proven itself to be a full financial reporting and business intelligence solution. Built on a stable SQL database, it is easy to install and its out of the box functionality can be up and running quickly yet still be adaptable to the changing needs of your growing business. Best of all, it is affordable for most small and mid-size companies.

    But, beyond financials, what does Microsoft Dynamics GP offer for distribution companies?

    Dynamics GP is a fantastic core system for finance plus sales order processing, inventory control and purchasing and you can choose from hundreds of add on tools specifically designed for the distribution industry. Set up your Dynamics GP to help you accomplish all your distribution needs without sacrificing the core financial features. With Dynamics GP for distribution you always have the power to choose the best features for your specific requirements.

    For instance, while other accounting software packages might give you one or two options for EDI, Dynamics GP gives you at least fourteen different options. You choose what works best for your company. Adapt the software to your processes, not vice versa.

    Other tools for distribution include 3PL integration, e-commerce, BarcodingLot/Serial Tracking, Container Management, Integrated Carrier Shipping, Inventory Planning Bill of Materials and Warehouse management systems (WMS) to name a few.

    These add-on tools and many more are specifically designed to work with Dynamics GP and are often so seamless that you don’t even realize they are add-ons. Think of it as an ERP with apps. You have the core engine to make it run, and the add-on apps to give you exactly what you want. The add-ons for Microsoft Dynamics GP will allow you to grow your distribution business in any direction you choose. Check out some of the apps we recommend at www.calszone.com/marketplace

    Now that you’ve chosen an ERP solution for your distribution company, be sure to choose a partner to help you implement it. True, the software itself is suited to your industry. But a partner should be well versed in your business processes as well as in the software. CAL Business Solutions has over seventy-five distribution companies using Microsoft Dynamics GP.
