Food and Beverage Distribution

Help drive down costs for distributing manufactured goods by integrating business and financial systems

Why Microsoft Dynamics for food and beverage manufacturers?

The food and beverage industry is remarkably diverse. Thousands of different products and many types of processes (including fresh, frozen, chilled, and long-shelf-life goods) serve customers ranging from megaretailers to small chains, independent stores, catering services, restaurants, and exporters. Manufacturers must respond to the demands of retailers and customers, manage supply chain processes, and make sure delivery times and schedules are coordinated.

Microsoft Dynamics solutions offer a powerful set of applications for food and beverage manufacturers. These integrated applications can be deployed quickly and inexpensively, without complicated customizations and drawn-out implementation projects.
