Dynamics 365 can provide organisations with the supply chain visibility required to make informed decisions, and realise their strategic goals.

Dynamics provides clients with supply chain visibility to make informed decisions.

Businesses with supply chains face constant pressure on profit margins and increasing global competition. Customers expect a digital and online experience yet still demand personalised engagement, high levels of interaction, and real-time notifications.

The operations team require full visibility across the supply chain and efficient processes in the back office and warehouse, so they can accurately forecast stock levels at multiple locations to meet customer demands.

The management team need accurate and timely information to make informed decisions and see the overall health of their business.

If businesses don’t address the needs of their customers and their operational efficiency they risk losing sales, low staff productivity, customer dissatisfaction, and shrinking profit margins.

KPMG can help businesses with a solution from Microsoft. Dynamics 365 provides the processes, controls and reporting functions required in supply chain management. Whether your functions operate in conjunction with warehousing, importing, assembly, kitting, manufacturing, or retailing, Dynamics 365 has considered the specific needs of inventory-centric businesses.
