Microsoft Dynamics gp, CRM & Cloud for Manufacturing
Dynamics GP solutions that adapt and scale with your growth
Manufacturers need easy-to-use, flexible manufacturing ERP solutions (Batch manufacturing, Process Manufacturing, Industry specific manufacturing processes) to effectively manage business operations and procurement. Microsoft Dynamics ERP (Or Business Central) ERP for manufacturing is designed specifically to include finance, supply chain management, operations management and human resources. Manufacturing, supply chain and distribution often go hand in hand. We have the experience and industry accelerators for manufacturing excellence, process optimization, and rapid implementations.
Endeavour has a significant number of small and mid-size manufacturing clients who are using Dynamics GP. Our larger Dynamics GP manufacturing implementations entail more complex Advisory Services and Staff Augmentation for manufacturing management and planning such as advanced demand planning, planning quantities and the use of MO (Manufacturing Order) to reflect the routing within each manufacturing process: from raw goods, through their incubation period, to the finished product. Endeavour has also helped clients successfully integrate multiple systems and processes between their warehouse management system (WMS), Great Plains, and their MRP with Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) practices and of course options for barcode scanning in GP.
More and more manufacturing companies are expanding their technology investments to include CRM (Customer Relationship Management) to manage their sales reps and selling activities, as well as, their post-sales customer service including: the management of after-sale maintenance, warranties, support contracts, product recalls, returns and RMA, service bulletins and contract renewals.
