3 Best Applications of Dynamics 365 Warehouse Management
Posted by Maulik Shah on March 7th, 2019
Those were good old days where we could tell what CRM really is. Nowadays the CRMs have become quite a mystery. Soon a client says anything about CRM, we always have to ask what functionality you require. For example, the Dynamics CRM earlier had NAV, AX, GP, SL (All ERP), and of course, a solution called Dynamics CRM itself.
However, they all moved on and became a family called Dynamics CRM 365. So here we have a CRM and ERP stacked together. For the end user, this is a nightmare and a blessing at the same time. Nightmare - because nobody can tell at their very best what each of the applications of Dynamics 365 can do. And blessing - because it is as comprehensive as a CRM solution can be.
Here in this article, we have made an attempt to highlight some of the best features of Dynamics 365 Warehouse Management.
Effective Process Management:
Isn’t every CRM and ERP intended to lead to this? Yes, typically for Supply Chain from a sales point of view - still, this is a giant stride for Dynamics NAV users. Dynamics 365 Warehouse Management offers enhanced features for the project module of the NAV. It provides a 360-degree functionality for Warehouse Management. Let’s look at how.
Dynamics 365 offers integration between warehouse items and various projects. For a manufacturer who runs the products based on the projects, this is how the process would run. The user will have visibility from goods coming in, allocation of goods for the job, and organizing the process. Beautiful, isn’t it?
Reduce the No of Irrelevant Sales Orders:
Approval of the sales orders is one of the essential processes in procurement. Not so, for the pre-approved orders.
Dynamics 365’s warehouse management functionality replaced the current delivery function using sales orders. The users can get rid of the irrelevant sales orders for the specific job orders with fewer changes and manage the requirements through standard delivery. As an end user, you would like to reduce these overheads. And certain sales orders are just rhetorical.
An ideal supply chain software must take care of all the salient elements of the supply chain. A standalone software to manage inventory, warehouse, and logistics is the best-case scenario. Dynamics 365 is one of the ideal solutions to meet all these 3 ends in one package.
With Dynamics 365, users can manage the outbound planning aspect for the shipments. As it directly connects the data with the warehouses, the process is quick, accurate, and efficiently simple. Hence, the managers can have clear visibility through inbound, warehousing, and outbound. Exciting, isn’t it?
One must empower the teams to enhance performance. The run-time processes (which are redundant) are the first roadblock to achieve this. Going micro into your current operational challenges, businesses can find more mileage through granular changes.
Today’s CRM solutions have come a long way. Most importantly, for supply chain dependent businesses, Dynamics 365 provides just the right tool to increase output. It is a complete solution. There are very few solutions available which are as effective as Dynamics 365
