Why Choose D365 for your Manufacturing Business?



When thinking about modernizing your manufacturing business, there are certainly many different moving parts involved. Manufacturing is a complex industry that requires each and every piece of the puzzle to flow well in order to be successful. As a solution, Microsoft Dynamics 365 recognizes this need and helps businesses to integrate different pieces of the manufacturing journey into one place. For this reason, there are several different business areas that D365 has available for those that work in the manufacturing industry. In order to ensure that your new solution is as robust as you need it to be, we recommend working with a partner to help you ensure that all of the following areas integrate together.


In a manufacturing business, there are so many different aspects to production. D365 is able to merge many production tasks into one solution, leaving you with less paperwork, less headache, and more time to focus on the bottom line. For example, some of the things that businesses are able to move exclusively to the D365 platform include things like production scheduling, subcontracting, resource management, capacity planning, product configurations, order, reporting, production cost analyses, and changes in product management.

Supply Chain

Once a product has been finalized, it’s time to move to the supply chain for distribution. Again, Microsoft Dynamics 365 has the ability to keep the supply chain organized and all in one place. Some supply chain features that it offers to help you stay organized and on track include inventory and warehouse management (including those businesses that have multiple warehouses), shipping and returns tracking, demand forecasting, quality control, product management, and transactions between businesses.


In manufacturing, things can start to get complicated when you need to decide which products to be used in your operations.  That’s where the procurement side of Microsoft Dynamics 365 comes in. This solution helps businesses with things like online procurement and paper procurement (catalogs), purchasing policies, trade agreements with vendors, vendor management, reporting, contract management, workflows and more.  


As you can see, there are lots of different manufacturing tasks that D365 is able to handle for your business, making it the ideal solution. Let a trusted partner like SSNW work with you to help set up this solution in your business. The possibilities are endless.
