Manufacturers Enable Growth With Microsoft Dynamics 365
Rolled product manufacturers planning to expand product lines, coordinate operations across multiple facilities and expand into new marketplaces must have a firm hand on data from across the enterprise. Microsoft Dynamics 365 connects all of the moving parts of your business including sales, services, manufacturing, planning, scheduling order fulfillment and purchasing. Centralizing data helps businesses achieve more by enabling people to quickly find, visualize and use information with efficiency.

Custom workflows enable manufacturers to fine tune production and warehouse management operations across each facility to meet growth and profit requirements.
Dynamics 365 also includes built-in business intelligence features, such as dashboards, visual graphs and charts which highlight meaningful KPIs. Business and departmental leaders can then use this information to streamline operations, coordinate people and processes, monitor work in progress, and strategize future goals. Connecting data empowers workers to make data-driven decisions in the interest of your bottom line and for your customers.
