5 Ways ProMRO Helps Dynamics 365 Customers: A Fully Integrated MRO Solution

All of your routine Sales, Operations, Production and Finance processes are tied together from start to finish with ProMRO. ProMRO leverages Dynamics 365 functionality and pairs it with MRO ERP software designed specifically for MRO's unique requirements. This combination allows MRO companies to utilize the robust supply chain inventory management functionality, project tracking and traceability, global financials and manufacturing all included in the Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain ERP solution. ProMRO includes robust features and capabilities for sales, shop floor, inventory controls and finance to help improve efficiency, productivity, standardization, cost savings and predictability with ProMRO and Dynamics 365.

1. Integrate Sales

ProMRO empowers you to efficiently move from the quote through sales to post-sales support. All activities are traced and accessible across departments. Your sales, customer service and shop floor teams can see relevant contacts, communications, and activities. Your team can have a clear view of all activities with a customer and/or prospect through the lifecycle of the sale including shop quotes and approvals. Your customer service team will find the 360-degree view of the customer (including their job and equipment history) especially helpful for pre and post-sales support. ProMRO Sales Operations include the following:

The shop floor will know what was sold and what services need to be accomplished by having clearly defined tasks (task cards for aviation) to be followed within a project to monitor the budget in real time. You will be able to easily identify whether a task was started, how long was spent on it, who charged the time, and when. Service Profiles functionality includes:

  • Templates to standardize how you quote work
