Remanufacturing: Tracking Cores with Dynamics 365BC and 365REMAN

Visit Website View Our Posts

Cores are a valuable component in manufacturing and remanufacturing. These components are sent out and returned by hundreds of companies that manufacture, remanufacture, or distribute products. Core distributors must know precisely where their cores are and when they are scheduled for return. Unfortunately, most manufacturing ERP solutions don't have sufficient functionality for tracking cores. Companies must either find a custom core tracking app or manually track them in a spreadsheet. Some businesses just outsource the whole process. Each of these options can prove unreliable and expensive. But there is a superior way to track cores in your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP system with Western Computer's 365REMAN.

Another task that has traditionally been troublesome is tracking core eligibility. Suppliers and distributors of manufactured and remanufactured products often charge mounting fees until cores are recovered, and manufacturers vouch for their good condition. Usually, there is an expiration date on the eligibility for credit. Delay or poor condition will reduce the amount of the core credit.

ERP Suited  for the Remanufacturing Industry

To solve the core return tracking predicament, Western Computer developed 365REMAN. Our application is embedded into Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC, a full-featured ERP solution tailored for remanufacturers, distributors of remanufactured products, and core suppliers. 365REMN is a cloud solution ideal for businesses that rely on distinct remanufacturing functions in their ERP solution or want to update their existing business management structure.

365REMAN can enhance your receiving process by outlining core inspection criteria. A scaling process can track and record the condition of the core, enter the qualities into inventory, and reduce the core credit based on quality.

Manufacturers and Remanufacturers can eliminate core tracking and teardown pain points while combining processes in their standard workflows and daily operations.

365REMAN boasts these capabilities:

  • Core tracking related to customers and vendors
  • Flexible terms for tracking, evaluating, and costing cores
  • Comprehensive supply-chain management
  • Core intake, inspection, and designation
  • Production and teardown/disassembly order management

365REMAN Benefits Your Accounting and Production Teams
