Email | Print

Manufacturers are experiencing new, unique business challenges in light of the dawning digital era. Many business owners are transitioning to Microsoft Dynamics GP for a variety of reasons; most importantly, Dynamics GP gives businesses greater visibility into your manufacturing, leading to less excess inventory and lower costs.

With Microsoft Dynamics GP, you can manage your complete manufacturing business – from initial procurement to final product delivery. Better yet, it gives you visibility into your entire operations, with real time, accurate views into the exact data you need. To help you identify what is more business-critical, Dynamics GP automatically tracks data throughout your manufacturing process, helping to ensure essential information is given high visibility, which allows you to respond to changes or issues before they become problematic.

Microsoft Dynamics GP gives all of your employees clear visibility into the information that’s specifically important to them, with role-based, personalized dashboards providing key performance indicators (KPI). Those in procurement, for example, can get deep visibility into customer demand data and then quickly drill down to specific details to optimize inventory and adjust raw material orders.
