Visit Website View Our Posts

The obstacles facing inventory managers in the consumer packaged goods industry are many. Especially recently, coming out of the disruptions of the pandemic, we've experienced economic fluctuations, workforce instability, and supply chain disruptions. All these factors make inventory management more challenging. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Western Computer can help.

Is your organization still managing inventory operations manually? Many companies are turning to automation and technology to modernize inventory management and set the stage for future growth.

How do you determine the right time to upgrade your technology? Take a look at your current processes and see if any of the following apply to your company:

  • Are you still manually entering data into your system?
  • Do you still perform inventory counting manually without scanners?
  • Is it easy to rebalance your inventory across your network?
  • Are you running short of warehouse space?

Any one of these preventable problems will create delays, bottlenecks, and inefficiencies that will interfere with your company's performance, productivity, and growth.

Do you have a problem with overstocks of slow-moving products? Or is it a question of rapid inventory turnover and not having items on hand when needed? Either way, you'll have a problem scaling the availability of your goods with the rate of demand using manual methods. A robust modern software solution, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, will ensure your company meets today's and tomorrow's requirements.
