Microsoft Dynamics SL, the project-focused ERP solution for project-driven organizations, has all the supply chain management functionality most organizations require in the Business Essentials edition. And if your organization has unique or specialized supply chain management needs, other modules are available with the Advanced Management edition or a la carte. The foundational modules for supply chain management, found in both editions of Microsoft Dynamics SL, are the following:
- Order Management
- Landed Cost
The Order Management module helps you to improve customer satisfaction by keeping your staff on task and on top of the entire sales order process, under any circumstances. This module delivers comprehensive capabilities for a range of industries, including distribution, service, and manufacturing. It will help improve efficiency and customer service, now and as your business grows.
The Purchasing module will help you boost productivity and reduce transaction costs with increased purchasing accuracy, speedy processing, streamlined receiving, and efficient invoice matching and vouchering. It provides buyers with accurate, up-to-date vendor and pricing information to help them make consistent, cost-effective buying decisions.
The Inventory module helps ensure that your customers get what they want, when they want it, and it maximizes the return on your inventory investment. It helps you deal with a full range of inventory issues, including outgoing orders, incoming stock, returns, back orders, surplus inventory, and dead stock.
Finally, the Landed Cost module captures shipping, handling, and import fees (landed costs), and it rolls them into the total cost of goods. With this module, distributors and manufacturers can calculate accurate inventory valuation by including additional charges beyond item purchase costs, such as miscellaneous origin and destination fees.
