Why Microsoft Dynamics for distribution?

Dynamics AX and CRM Online are built by Microsoft, a name companies know and trust that has been helping business achieve more since before the first version of Office was released in 1989. Dynamics integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft products that employees know and like such as Excel, Outlook, and Skype for Business. Dynamics AX and CRM Online have a familiar look and feel.

Microsoft Dynamics provides powerful, adaptable solutions that give distributors the tools they need to manage every aspect of their business, from order entry and procurement to sophisticated inventory, and shipment management. These integrated solutions can be deployed quickly and inexpensively, without complicated customization or drawn out implementation projects.

Streamline business operations

Automate critical business processes, from order capture to
  inventory replenishment, and help reduce wasteful activities.
Deliver real-time business intelligence and alerts on the
  status of the business to management and customers.
Enable customer self-service through Web portals.

Improve supply chain and inventory management

Provide easy, real-time visibility into inventory, sales,
  purchasing, and financial information across multiple
  branches and locations.
Accurately track shipping and delivery of parts by integrating
  advanced functionality with enterprise resource planning
  (ERP).
Maintain accurate real-time inventory data and optimize layout,
  picking methods, and movement.


Improve Visibility

When business processes are automated, business data becomes usable in new ways. This helps reduce costs, minimize inventory, negotiate better rates, and so much more. Visibility of operations across branches, warehouses, and customer service provides insight and a competitive edge.

Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solutions facilitate strategic decision-making on all levels. And with enhanced viewing, drilldown, and inquiries for financial, manufacturing, and distribution information, employees can make firm promises today and plan more effectively for tomorrow.

Strengthen Customer Service

Today’s customers are demanding more value-added services, in addition to strong customer service. Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solutions improve distribution management so you can improve order fill-rates, order response time and much more, all leading to superior customer service. Microsoft Dynamics CRM delivers real customer visibility and the ability to connect with them on a
practical level for Customer Care and Service scenarios and BI and analytics to understand how and what they buy and what changes their behavior. That means more satisfied customers, more repeat business, and positive word-of-mouth in the channel.
