Dynamics ERP for Wholesale Distribution
As a wholesale distributor, you know about scale. It's just how you operate every day. Getting your products from manufacturer to retailer or end-user is a complex process with a multitude of variables that change in real-time. All this data can be difficult to track. That's why you need an ERP solution to help you keep up.
When you are comparing options, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (previously known as NAV) is a premier choice of wholesale distribution software. Providing unparalleled flexibility to meet your unique business challenges, Business Central allows you to analyze every aspect of your business that is important to you, including costs, revenue, sales orders, warehousing, and shipping. In the face of constantly rising customer expectations, global competition, and tight margins, Business Central lets you find real answers in the mountain of data you are generating so you can adapt faster than your competitors.
The Data You Need ... All Together and in Real-Time
Business Central transforms the way you run your operations. By linking employees, products, and information in one place, it streamlines every process and workflow. It lets you connect the entire distribution process – purchasing to inventory to shipping – with built-in traceability and compliance, which translates into increased productivity and larger earnings for you.
With a Business Central/NAV system set up by Innovia to meet your individual needs and paired with the right ISV solutions, you will gain the supply chain, logistics, and financial management tools you need, such as:
- Optimized Order Processing, Synchronized with Product Availability
- Reliable Forecasting
- Automated Purchasing & Electronic Invoicing
- Integrated Shipping & Labeling
- Clear Just-in-Time Cross-Docking and Dropshipping
- Real-time Inventory Tracking and Inventory Requirement Predicting
Business Central makes it easy to take control of your data and your financial outlook. Better inventory management means you can focus on growing your business and not get stuck trying to figure out what the data is telling you.
You Don't Have to Be an IT Expert!
You might be thinking, "That sounds great, but I am not an ERP software expert. How can I get this implemented?"
One of the unique advantages of a Business Central or NAV system is that Microsoft does not sell it directly to consumers and leave you scrambling to figure out how to use it. Microsoft Partners like Innovia Consulting bring the product to you and provide expert-level support both during implementation and as your team uses the system. We help evaluate your business needs against the feature set of the product and tailor it specifically to meet your needs.
You will also find as you look into ERP systems more, that Innovia specifically knows wholesale distribution. We have worked with a wide range of clients in this industry and know the top factors you are looking for and, perhaps, might even suggest areas that you have not considered yet that are crucial to your business. Our wholesale distribution clients have seen spectacular results, such as:
- Tighter Inventory Control
