Balanced, Agile Integrated Business and Supply Chain Planning with Netstock IBP and Dynamics 365 ERP

Visit Website View Our Posts

Integrated Business Planning (IBP)  with Dynamics 365 is a holistic approach to unifying sales, supply, financial, and operational resources across an entire organization.


IBP is a proven method to maximize profits and minimize the risks associated with growth and increased market competition.  BP works to break down siloed working practices in order to align the goals and financial targets of all divisions with the overall corporate goals, defining success at each stage and having a system of accountability for reaching those goals. It is a fundamental shift in company culture, requiring complete buy-in and support from all levels of management.

Such organizational unity requires much effort to achieve, but in the end makes your company more robust, agile, and resistant to disruption and black swan events. To accomplish it, businesses are focusing more on their cash flow and margins across operations, adding pressure on supply chain planning to reduce waste, unlock operating cash and manage working capital more effectively.

Some businesses try to conform the new thinking and processes to common productivity applications, such as spreadsheets. While there will always be a place for them, spreadsheets have many critical shortcomings that hamper collaborative and dynamic IBP practices. Successful IBP execution involves connecting those new, streamlined processes with a supply chain planning solution.

At Netstock, we deliver MIcrosoft Dynamics solutions that help thousands of companies successfully integrate IBP into their company culture, giving greater visibility, speed, and predictive planning to help decision-makers adjust course and keep company objectives on target while coping with disruptive events along the way.
