The Inventory Replenishment module for Microsoft Dynamics SL gives you integrated tools that optimize inventory stocking levels and automate purchasing so that you can maintain favorable customer service levels and inventory balances. The Inventory Replenishment module is available a la carte for the Advanced Management edition of Microsoft Dynamics SL.
Keep your customers satisfied by maintaining sufficient quantities of products to meet expected demand. Balance inventory carrying costs with customer service levels, and cut expenses, including write-offs and mark-downs, associated with keeping excess stock on hand.
Forecast demand by tracking usage and vendor performance statistics. The Inventory Replenishment module calculates these values and automatically forecasts demand based on the replenishment settings you specify, actual inventory usage, and the purchase order lead times you record.
You can calculate optimal order points, safety stock, and order quantities automatically, so that the right amount of the right materials are available at the right time. Replenishment suggestions can be automatic, but you can still easily override any replenishment suggestions and other planning factors. You can also automatically generate purchase orders, yet still maintain complete control by manually adjusting any planned orders and the transaction date upon which they are calculated as needed—before purchase orders are generated.
Eliminate reorder guesswork by automatically calculating past inventory turnovers and allowing for sales increases based on season or unusual demands. Save time and money by reducing the expense of last minute reorders and lost sales opportunities when stock is unavailable. Maintain optimal stock levels, reduce carrying costs, and help eliminate special or urgent reorder charges. All with the Inventory Replenishment module for Microsoft Dynamics SL.
