Today's business environment is shifting from the traditional model of simply manufacturing and selling products. Supply chains are now global in nature, customers have more options for where to get products, and they need their suppliers to be true business partners. Customers expect these partners to not only provide the right high-quality products, at the right time, but also to anticipate their future requirements and to identify changing market trends, while meeting and exceeding their needs.
This means that manufacturers and distributors need easy-to-use, flexible solutions to more effectively manage their business. Microsoft Dynamics 365 addresses these needs with powerful, flexible, integrated-by-design solutions that also enable users to deliver amazing customer experiences.
Competition is greater than ever before. To succeed, manufacturers have to show a higher value proposition to market. Whether it's through faster response times, higher quality products, or exceptional customer service and relationships, manufacturers are being asked to do more. To maintain a competitive advantage, manufacturers require flexibility in their operations and must continually drive innovation—not only in the marketplace but also in how they do business. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central provides manufacturers a solution that is architected with flexibility and change in mind, built with operational excellence at its core, and focused on allowing you to drive innovation and be the market leader.
For distributors, operational effectiveness is a must, but simply being effective is not enough. No longer is the business just a process of moving product from one place to another. Now, complexities abound for distributors, with challenges in effective inventory control, changing regulations, and how to best leverage technology.
Distributors also must change and adapt in how they manage operations and how they do business with partners. They must identify new, faster (yet less costly) transportation modes and then find a way to extend those cost savings back to the customer.
Plus, warehousing and transportation capabilities have to be world-class. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central provides distributors a solution built to provide operations and logistics excellence while also offering 360-degree visibility and control throughout the entire supply chain.
