Struggling with Inventory with Dynamics GP? No, You Don’t Need Another System

Warehouses can be a chaotic place with volumes of inventory coming in from suppliers, being used on the floor, or being shipped to customers. Keeping track of high volume, fast-moving inventory using manual means is time-consuming and risky, even if you have an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution in place. However, you do not need yet another standalone solution to gain control and insight over inventory. There is another, more productive and affordable solution.

Strong inventory management is essential for busy manufacturers, distributors, retailers and other businesses trying to keep track of raw materials, stock parts, components or assemblies, and finished products. Too much inventory eats up cash flow; not enough inventory brings production to a halt and frustrates customers. There is a delicate balance to maintaining the right inventory at the right time. While you need more inventory support than basic ERP systems can supply, you don’t need disparate, specialty software.
