Learn about how we serve the Manufacturing industry 

It’s a well-known fact, that manufacturing is one of the biggest industries in Canada, which makes up almost 12% of Canada's national GDP. The industry is still growing, and manufacturing companies need modern software to ensure maximize growth potential. Here are three more reasons why manufacturers should consider an ERP system:

1. Enhanced Communication between Departments

Communication is a crucial factor for a manufacturing company, which has tens of different departments as well as a need to work efficiently. An ERP system can ensure effective communications between departments through connecting an entire company into one unified system.

2. Automated Processes

It’s no secret that manufacturing companies have complex operations. The bigger the company becomes – the more complex its operations are. ERP software becomes a need rather than a want because it automates daily tasks and provides accurate information to simplify business operations, like managing production orders, calculating costs or managing different versions of the manufacturing bills of materials.

3. Better Decision Making

An ERP system acquires tons of data to provide a decision-maker with useful insights. Available reports, KPIs, and forecasting features make the process of decision making much faster and more reliable. Moreover, you can personalize the information that you're getting from an ERP system to get the most accurate insights for your business.

With increasing demand for manufacturing firms to provide quality and efficient service, ERP software implementation can help a company stand out from its competitors by providing them with the resources to maximize their operational efficiency. Thanks to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, manufacturing companies are better equipped to:

1. Generate Product Demand Forecasts

With its robust record keeping capabilities, NAV enables users to analyze sales patterns to anticipate future client needs. This function analyzes sales trends and determines which products are most likely be sold in the future, allowing companies to manage their inventory accordingly and ensure product availability for customers.  

2. Improved Information Tracking

NAV can generate analysis reports that allow for uniform reporting, enabling users to create personalized report formats that highlight key account information. 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 tracking product quantities in inventory, planned production times, product transfers and sales returns, NAV provides manufacturers the ability to generate realistic timelines and create accurate promises to customers on when they can expect to receive their product.

4. Financial Savings

Due to poor organization, companies are often required to spend more time and money reviewing and double checking for mistakes and system errors. 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.

These are but a few key benefits that Microsoft Dynamics NAV can provide for manufacturing companies.

In its February release, Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials brought forth a number of new capabilities and updated features. Notable ones include the following:

  • Improved Setup and Configuration

A new Services and Extensions button is added to the Business Manager and Accountant Role Center. This button brings up a list of setup pages, service connections and add-ons which can be enabled either through assisted or manual setup.

  • Contact Management

This feature allows the user to quickly identify and delete duplicate contacts on their customer list right from the new Contact Duplicates tile in the Sales and Relationship Manager Role Center. A sales person or purchaser code can also be set up to be automatically included on new sales or purchase orders, making it easier to follow an individual employee’s performance as a basis for calculating the sales commission or bonus.

  • Multiple Locations

Users can manage inventory in multiple locations or within different bins in a warehouse and buy and sell from various locations. The Availability per Location window shows information on item availability per inventory location, while transfer orders allow the user to move items between locations.

  • Dynamics 365 for Sales Integration

The Dynamics 365 for Sales Integration functions as a Customer Relationship Management integration. Users can synchronize their data (sales orders, item availability, currencies) between the two apps using the assisted setup function, making for a more seamless lead-to-cash process.
