As many small and midsize manufacturers and distributors know, running a growing business is never easy. Changing economic conditions, evolving customer demands and unreliable suppliers are common supply chain disruptions. Identifying weak links is the key to correcting course before your customers become dissatisfied and your profit margins get squeezed. A Microsoft enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution can provide the control and insight you need to effectively manage the many moving parts of your supply chain and prepare for potential interruptions. View the “Five Ways to Make Your Supply Chain More Dynamic” infographic and learn how a Microsoft business solution can help you:
- Base decisions on more than a hunch
- Embrace changing customer behavior and needs
- Avoid disruptions to your business
- Work from actuals, not guesstimates
- Know what your customers want before they do
In addition, Microsoft business solutions offer powerful predictive analysis tools for evaluating “what if” scenarios. You can use these tools to manipulate a number of variables to see how fluctuations in your supply chain can impact open orders, delivery times, inventory levels and cash flow. Once you know what can happen, you can develop strategic plans to outmaneuver potential risks.
Use quick-to-implement, easy-to-use Microsoft business solutions to turn your supply chain into an in-stock, on-time, everything-is-where-it-needs-to-be operation and reduce the chance of disruptions that can halt production and lead to unsatisfied customers.
