What is Supply Chain Management (SCM) and how does it work? 

Supply chain management, or SCM, is a phrase used in the business world. SCM refers to the transportation and storage of goods from point of origin to point of consumption (POC) and encompasses both raw materials and products in preparation as well as finished goods. 

The goal of supply chain management is to help the organization create net worth by developing a competitive infrastructure that makes use of global logistics and synchronizes supply and demand. 

Who is it intended for?

Distributors, wholesalers, and other businesses wishing to manage inventory, their clients, suppliers to reach the customer satisfaction should consider Business Central Supply Chain. From the moment a customer contacts you for an order, through purchasing and fulfillment, Business Central gives you complete access over your inventory. 

BENEFITS

Order and pay when it's convenient for you.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Supply Chain Management can alert you to the ideal time to pay suppliers, allowing you to maximize discount opportunities, build supplier relationships, and prevent excessive fines or interest rates. You can also take efforts to prevent wasteful or fraudulent payments to vendors using advanced analytics incorporated into the supply chain and processes. 

Improve the efficiency of sales orders. 

Advanced integrations and Business Intelligence are provided by Business Central, which provides insight into Supply Chain Management processes and, as a result, increases your sales and inventories through the Order-to-Cash (OtC) process. Microsoft’s CRM solution, Dynamics 365 Sales, is further integrated with Business Central. 

A total view of your warehouse 

Your warehouse is presented as a single whole, i.e., a holistic picture, in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, which aids you in receiving, processing, and delivering orders to end customers in a fast and accurate manner. The system also allows you to trace all products transactions and movements by creating locations based on the structure of the warehouse and the measurements of the storage unit. 

Built-in inventory intelligence

Learn what you have in stock in real time, when it’s time to order additional products, and how to prepare for growing demand. Business Central’s built-in intelligence anticipates the optimum moment to restock your inventory, ensuring that your clients aren’t disappointed by missing items. Furthermore, you avoid the chance of your stock becoming overloaded, resulting in an unduly large capital binding. 

Maximize Profitability 

Order new products when they’re needed and pay for them when they’re due. BC alerts you when it’s the optimum time to pay your suppliers so you may obtain the best possible discount, build the best possible supplier relationship, and avoid excessive interest or penalties.
