Many divisions within companies deal with theoretical aspects of business. They come up with ideas, devise plans, and process information. For the operations division, however, it is all about action. When an order reaches operations, it is time to start producing tangible results.
Operations may include a number of departments, such as purchasing, plant management, production, warehousing, engineering, materials, research and development, and shipping and receiving. All of these departments must somehow work in unison, like the musicians in an orchestra.
Imagine if an orchestra had more than one conductor, one for the woodwinds, another for the strings, one for brass, and yet another for percussion. It would be very difficult for them to stay in sync. The same is true for business management software. Operations departments must work closely with one another and keep the order fulfillment process flowing smoothly. That is where a Microsoft Dynamics business management solution can work wonders.
With Microsoft Dynamics ERP software an operations manager can oversee the operations departments and coordinate with warehousing, production, materials, and every other department along the path to completion. The operations manager can see the big picture but also zoom in on any hot spots whenever necessary.
With Microsoft Dynamics ERP software the order processor can prioritize orders, coordinate with other departments on purchase orders and invoicing, and check inventory and work closely with accounting.
The shipping manager makes sure the company’s products are out of the door on time and end up in stores and/or customers’ hands in perfect condition. With Microsoft Dynamics, the order processor can track shipments and keep an accurate assessment of the shipping process.
With a suite of Microsoft Dynamics ERP products combined with Dynamics CRM, a business operations division can run like a well-oiled machine, reducing redundancy and botched orders, which ultimately increases productivity and profit.
You can streamline processes, control costs, and accelerate delivery to market. For more information on Microsoft Dynamics solutions for operations professionals please
