Distributors Take Heed! Lock down Your Supply Chain with Microsoft Dynamics GP
Securing your supply chain is not about physical locks and chains, or biometric recognition, or key codes, or complex, ever-changing passwords. Rather, it’s about tracking and managing your production, inventory, orders, and vendors. It’s about making sure that your distribution sources and networks work efficiently and effectively so that you always have just the right amount of raw materials, components, and finished goods ready to ship.
Not too much. Not too little.
Inventory management and supply chain management (SCM) go hand in hand. Like peanut butter and jelly, or milk and cookies. Having real-time inventory data that is integrated with your ERP solution will allow you to plan orders based on available materials, fulfill your sales orders on a timely basis, avoid backorders, and forecast future sales accordingly.
Manual inventory tracking is very time consuming. It can also result in duplicate data entries, errors that could compromise your data, and cause problems throughout your distribution channels. Managing your inventory and supply chain through your Microsoft Dynamics GP software will allow you to save time and work smarter by taking advantage of the full capabilities that Dynamics GP offers.

At Tidestone Solutions, we work with our distribution clients to ensure that they’re reaping the full benefits of inventory and supply chain management with Microsoft Dynamics GP. Take, for example, a company in Westbrook, Maine, that creates and distributes an award-winning line of environmentally friendly, pet friendly products.
“Physical inventory used to take 8 people three days to perform,
but now it took 5 people only one day.
We were able to complete the physical inventory on the weekend
and not lose any shipping days.”
