Thanks to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, manufacturing companies are better equipped to:

As a result, information is more accessible, enabling up-to-date inventory information and optimizing manufacturing and warehousing functionality.

3. Controlling On-Time Delivery

By enhancing operational precision, the amount of overtime required to correct mistakes as well as costs related to additional labour expenses is significantly reduced. information regarding production expenses will also be readily available to managers, allowing them to identify areas of potential savings or eliminate unnecessary expenses.
