Reduce Complexity, Increase Flexibility And Improve Margins

You have always worked to improve performance against benchmarks such as cost, time-to-market, product quality, and inventory optimization. But now are you feeling pressure to refine and optimize your product and service portfolio to reduce complexity, build flexibility, maintain/improve margins and improve responsiveness? All while, you are expected to:

  • Strengthen your order-to-delivery process by collaborating with trading partners on the demand and supply sides
  • Build tighter feedback loops for timely responses
  • Sharpen your demand planning by proactively involving key channel partners and customers in the forecasting process

This is a lot to achieve all at once.

Webinar: Microsoft Dynamics AX Warehouse Management WMS 101

The Warehouse Management module within Dynamics AX is a great feature to configure if you want to do more with your inventory then just track it and count it.

As a Modern Manufacturer, You Need:

  • Advanced Sales and Operations Planning™

  • Advanced Inventory Management™

  • Advanced Business Analytics™

    Gain the critical insight needed to improve operations, make informed decisions, and predict outcomes with key performance indicators (KPIs), such as customer profitability, lowest and highest cost to serve customers, percentage of on time deliveries, percentage of invoices current and past due, warehouse productivity, and sales and marketing effectiveness.

  • Advanced Demand Planning™

    See graphical forecasting based on historical baselines, expected promotions and events. Use proven forecasting algorithms to build comprehensive forecasts. Users can modify and adjust easily and immediately see the impact of the change.

  • Advanced Order Management™

    Deliver exceptional customer service and increase upselling opportunities by arming your customer service reps with real-time customer and product information. Advanced Order Management™ features include Advanced Order Entry, Stock Availability, Product Substitutions/Upselling, Left to Qualify, Duplicate Order Checking, Counter Sales and Lost Sales Tracking.

  • Advanced Procurement Management™

    Many of the sourcing decisions – near shore or off shore – are being made without all the information in hand. Distributor margins are slim and landed cost, buyer’s console (for intelligent purchase requirement consolidation), item creation during quote to order process, and more play a major role in increasing your margins.

Together, We Plan for Profit

Most software solutions allow you to account for needed industry functionality such as reservations and allocations, but do so as an afterthought – not including it in the planning process. While the information related to the inventory may be accounted for, it is often put in a siloed warehouse and forgotten. This relies on an Order to Cash methodology to manage your business, leaving out key information and ultimately keeping you from hitting your margins. Why not use software that allows you to include everything you need in the planning process so you can Plan to Profit and hit your margins, rather than managing with information and technology subsets?
