Unified processes and end-to-end visibility with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

  • Due to undigitized or only partially digitized manufacturing and production steps, there is a lack of transparency and efficient planning and a sustainable increase in quality is difficult to implement.
  • Short-term changes in the availability of raw materials lead to high manual efforts without integrated procurement and production planning.
  • The demands of customers and suppliers for optimization of cooperation with automated processing are growing. Due to a lack of integration options, disadvantages arise compared to competitors

These are just some of the challenges that have occupied our customers in the past. The ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central for manufacturing and production companies offers the consistency required for the core processes of production companies.
