Make manufacturing easier in Dynamics GP.

Organizations that perform manufacturing or assembly require specialized inventory management. It’s no secret that having an organized warehouse and effective tools to efficiently manage your inventory saves time and money. It makes your business more profitable.

You require:

  • Tighter inventory controls
  • Better visibility into what you have and where to find it
  • An effective way to capture inventory transactions

 

Simply put, effective and efficient warehouse management is critical to your success.

It is not surprising then that many manufacturers evaluate adding Warehouse Management Solutions (WMS) as a way to achieve gains in efficiency, visibility, and accuracy. While there are many solutions available, if your business has already invested in Microsoft Dynamics GP, why not begin your WMS search by evaluating a solution that uses your existing MS Dynamics GP database?

Add mobile and barcode technology for GP inventory and any of these manufacturing systems:

  • GP Manufacturing

    Support for Component Issue, MO Receiving, and Quick MO

  • Vicinity Manufacturing

FAQs – PanatrackerGP for Manufacturing

PanatrackerGP is installed on mobile barcode-scanning devices connected to a wireless network. This provides real-time access to your data in GP such as purchase orders and item details. Transactions are captured and logged. Most often, the transaction is created in Dynamics GP using Microsoft’s eConnect infrastructure, thus ensuring the transactions are submitted following GP’s standard business rules. 

Many organizations evaluating WMS solutions are looking to add mobile and barcode technology to simplify inventory receiving, moves, transfers, and picking of inventory. PanatrackerGP combines with the Inventory, Sales, and Purchasing functionality of Dynamics GP to provide the functionality of a WMS (Warehouse Management System). 

PanatrackerGP provides the ability to use real-time features of GP that weren’t practical when performing manual keyboard updates ‘after the fact’.  These features include the use of multi-bins and separating order fulfillment processing which allow the actual items picked to be updated on the sales order.

We believe that most small to mid-size distribution organizations can improve their day-to-day operations with PanatrackerGP. Adding PanatrackerGP to your current GP investment transforms GP into a highly functional WMS system.

PanatrackerGP uses Microsoft eConnect to submit transactions in GP in the same way they would be entered within the GP interface. Transactions are added and saved in a batch your review. Automated posting solutions can be added to streamline your data capture even further.

PanatrackerGP for Manufacturing supports the GP Inventory Assembly BOM. Also included is Assembly Work Orders to add basic assembly planning functionality.

Order Fulfillment functionality is available for the Manufacturing solution. This adds support to complete sales order pick and pack operations.

There is a sales module available as an add-on for any of the inventory solutions. This transaction allows you to create a new sales order in GP or to add order lines to an existing sales order in GP.

Some of our more advanced features include:

  • Flex Fields support capturing additional custom data
  • ‘Pre’ and ‘Post’ SQL stored procedures offer powerful integration capabilities.
  • Our unique Directed Transfer infrastructure offers a directed pick to transfer raw materials and components to the manufacturing lines.
  • Advanced Bin Management supports logic for stock and overstock bin locations.

PanatrackerGP is highly flexible and also has detailed transaction logging to provide you a robust solution.

PanatrackerGP was designed to extend Dynamics GP data-entry onto mobile scanning devices so that transactions can be captured when and where the inventory activity occurs. To achieve efficiency and accuracy, a mobile device option is ideal to record transactions when users are interacting with the inventory. Therefore, we do not have a redundant desktop interface. Many of our customers have opted to use tablets with the Android OS.

Yes. We support both the issue of raw materials and components as well as recording finished goods production. 

Yes. Quick MO is a configurable option in PanatrackerGP.

Our time capture is supported for Dynamics GP and uses the Automated Data Capture table updates in GP.

PanatrackerGP was originally developed for the Windows Mobile handheld computers with integrated scanners. With the sunsetting of Windows Mobile, Panatrack added support for Android mobile devices. While we strongly recommend investing in Android devices with integrated barcode scanners to gain the highest scanning efficiency, we also operate well on Android phones with integrated cameras. Contact our sales team to learn more about your scanning options.

Yes. We have partnered with best-of-breed manufacturers for mobile devices and barcode printers in order to simplify your implementation.

Already working with a hardware vendor? No problem, we play nicely with others. (Just confirm your device selections with us before implementing to avoid any surprises.)

Yes! Even if the vendor’s barcode is a different number than your Dynamics GP item number, PanatrackerGP can associate alternate item numbers to your GP item number when receiving inventory (or as a separate transaction). It creates the association in GP under the Manufacturer Item Number Maintenance screen in GP.
