What do manufacturers look for in an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution? Because of their unique requirements, they want their ERP solution to be streamlined, aligned, integrated, and flexible. It goes without saying that it must make business processes accurate and efficient. And from the source to the final delivery, including production orders, bills of materials, version management, sales and inventory forecasting, supply planning, demand forecasting, capacity planning, and agile manufacturing, all stages should be cared for in a single solution.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central’s simplified manufacturing foundation is especially good for businesses that are anticipating growth. With such a flexible reliable solution, businesses can commit to customers’ requests, adjust quickly to changing circumstances, and stay on top of opportunities that will put them out in front of their competitors. Dynamics 365 Business Central provides real-time visibility into the entire workflow as well as the ability to add additional functionality as your business needs expand.

A legacy product with the advantage of the Cloud

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central’s predecessor was one of Microsoft’s premier offerings, Dynamics NAV. Developed on Dynamics NAV’s 20-year reputation, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central elevates that powerful manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain management system to the power, convenience, and mobility of the cloud.

Because of the power of the cloud, Business Central owners won’t have the headache of scheduling updates and the business disruption that could bring. System setup, performance assurance, security, and data management are all handled within the cloud-based product; there is no need for dedicated IT resources to worry about implementation and ongoing support.

“Business Central for manufacturing already has a proven track record and is widely used around the globe,” says John Uder, Account Executive for Microsoft Gold-certified partner BroadPoint, Inc. “By making it available in the cloud, the product is built to evolve faster than ever, not stagnate.”
