Visit Website View Our Posts

Insight Works’ flagship WMS product, Warehouse Insight, is now available for Dynamics 365 Business Central, and can be found on Microsoft’s AppSource. Why is this a big deal? For starters, Dynamics 365 Business Central is a great solution for supply chain management, and given that our Warehouse Insight is quite the powerful warehouse management system, there is the potential for this to be a match made in warehousing simplicity heaven.

But before we go into the ins and outs of what makes Warehouse Insight the perfect warehouse management product for your needs, let’s take a brief look at the changes Microsoft has implemented to make these kinds of processes possible.

Apps, ERPs, NAV…Oh My!

For many years, Microsoft has been offering Microsoft Dynamics NAV, an ERP that is not cloud-based, but for this year the software giant changed the name to Business Central (you’ve probably seen plenty of references to this in our blogs). Where some users have gotten confused – and rightfully so – is when Microsoft created a cloud version also called Business Central; so, what was once known as Dynamics NAV is now Business Central (on-premises), with the new cloud version known as Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Here’s what’s important to note: The modern model for all things Business Central that Microsoft is going with is similar to Apple and Android, wherein there is a “base” system in which apps can be downloaded and installed. As such, Insight Works products are going to be available in app form as we join the forward march into modern day tech…a world that seemingly knows no boundaries and encompasses a nearly infinite number of applications and industries.

Just to give you an idea of how all-encompassing this approach is, Microsoft’s App Store for Business Central includes solutions for:

  • Analytics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Collaboration
  • Customer Service
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • IT + Administration
  • Internet of Things
  • Marketing
  • Operations + Supply Chain
  • Productivity
  • Sales

  1. Is there any insights available in business central, where I would measure the vendor performance against the blanket Purchase Order history for the specific vendor?

    1. Business Central does not really provide any vendor performance reporting, but does track a lot of the data you may want to use to build your own reports in Power BI or other tools. For example, it tracks the expected receipt date and the posting date of the actual receipt that can be used for delivery performance. It also stores the blanket PO price and the actual price paid (item cost) if you wanted to validate price performance. For quality, you could create a report to show the quantity of items returned, by reason code, for specific vendors.
