Why Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP for Distribution?

Distribution companies today face real challenges in a rapidly changing industry. Global competition and intense price pressure at the retail level are eroding margins. Shorter product life cycles require businesses to adapt quickly to new circumstances. Distributors today care about integrated digital and physical systems, improved visibility, increased efficiency, additional flexibility and lower costs. They want to connect, leveraging data from the operations floor to customer services, to improve every aspect of their business.

Microsoft Dynamics has a proven record for distribution management. It can deliver visibility into your sales data, inventory levels and delivery schedules, giving you confidence in your ability to meet customer demands. Understanding market changes is difficult without timely reporting and data visibility, the use of up-to-date best practices and a single, integrated enterprise software solution for your business. Better manage regulatory and compliance.
