ERP Consultant Review: Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Supply Chain Management

ERP Consultant Dynamics NAV SCMAs ERP consultants, we meet many distribution companies who are struggling with Supply Chain Management (SCM). We help them implement ERP solutions to better manage increasing customer demands, competitive pressures, and the accelerating spread of manufacturers across the globe. Tight margins and the high cost of excess inventory make cost control and efficiency critical, especially for small to midsize distributors like you that can’t afford to make mistakes. With Microsoft Dynamics NAV for supply chain management, you get the tools you need to respond quickly to customers, rapidly pursue new market opportunities, and improve profitability by working efficiently with trade partners. You can tighten distribution processes and improve inventory management for single- or multi-site warehouses, in addition to handling order processing and demand planning. 

Microsoft Dynamics NAV also helps you manage a broad range of other business areas according to your particular needs. You can add functionality as you need it and grow at your own pace.
