Recently, for one of our clients who is a leading LED Retrofitter, we conducted a discovery workshop with their functional and technical teams. We documented their current business processes, uncovered challenges in day-to-day operations, analyzed organizational goals and objectives and performed an overall fit-gap analysis. During this workshop, we identified that their existing processes to manage inventory, create purchase orders, and sales invoices were cumbersome, and they were using multiple excel spreadsheets with a lot of formulas and calculations.
Our business application experts took the findings and designed a blueprint for the future state, presented them the potential impacts of a new integrated ERP, identified possible alternatives, and recommended the solution.
Based on our analysis and recommendations, our client’s leadership team concluded that Dynamics 365 Business Central would be the best fit for their current and future requirements. The client team and the implementation team from Advaiya decided to take a phased approach in implementing Dynamics 365-based supply-chain management system. The first phase has broadly included the demand planning, inventory management, purchasing control, procurement, vendor management, sales invoicing, and other supply chain management areas while the subsequent phases involved data migration, integration with other line-of-business applications, training, and broader user adoption.
The integrated cloud-based solution has helped them maintain productive vendor relationships, optimize the supply chain process to get the right goods to the right customer at the right time, improve the organizational efficiency and get better and deeper insights into business processes to track and measure performance.
