Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 is a product that speaks for itself. With powerful features and a user-friendly interface, Dynamics GP is a true ERP solution that provides you with unparalleled supply chain management.

What can you expect from Dynamics GP in terms of supply chain management? The following information on capabilities has been compiled by Microsoft:

 

Available to Promise

Help ensure the right inventory is available at the right time to meet customer needs, make firm delivery promises, and boost profitability by being able to predict when inventory is available. This functionality uses purchasing, inventory and sales information to determine when inventory will be available to sell.

Bill of Materials

Increase productivity with fast, flexible tracking of components and sub-assemblies used in light manufacturing and similar production and assembly operations.

Advanced Picking

Increase visibility and tracking for the pick, pack and shipping process. Advanced Picking in Microsoft Dynamics GP tailors picking routines to meet individual site’s business requirements, bin or bay sequence, or method of operation. This provides organizations with the flexibility needed to lower overhead, reduce handling, and improve accuracy for both single and multi-site warehouse operations.

Extended Pricing

Create flexible pricing options and rules for customers, including standard and personalized percentage-off, value-off, and net pricing options. Implement date-sensitive functionality for sales and promotions.

Inventory Control

Monitor inventory stock levels and costs, and set prices on a customer-by-customer basis to stay competitive, speed fulfillment, and build loyalty. Inventory control provides multiple costing methods, tiered pricing, alternate vendors, serial/lot tracking for selling items more efficiently. For added flexibility multiple locations and bins are available with tracking reason codes for transfers and cycle counts to get a more accurate inventory.

Landed Cost

Track and update the true cost associated with an inventory item and then automatically assign or modify costs as items are received.

PO Generator

Automate purchasing by generating a suggested purchase order, with order point or minimum/maximum settings that determine quantities needed based on purchasing, sales, and inventory data.

Purchase Order Processing/Receiving

Manage commitments and build lasting vendor relationships with automated purchasing and approval processes, flexible extended pricing, and blanket purchase orders. Receive partial shipments with discounts, landed costs and prepayments to better manage your purchasing and receiving process. With tolerance handling, receive items within a threshold percent of the purchase order for more flexible receiving and better purchase order management.

Requisition Management

Allow people to order materials needed to run the business with the necessary approvals with Requisition Management built through the base application.

Returns Management

Generate returns from historical customer invoices, service calls, or manually. Return the item to the vendor or fix it within your company and automatically transfer items from the returns warehouse to the main warehouse.

Sales Order Processing

Automate the sales ordering process to improve customer service, control fulfillment and invoicing, and minimize shipping and labor costs. Track quotes, orders, back orders, invoices and allow discounts per item and partial shipments. Enable quicker sales with suggested items that offer upsell opportunities and substitutions for items that out of stock.
