Manufacturing Company Increases Employee Productivity with ERP Solution

Halton Manufacturing needed a complete enterprise resource planning solution that would provide better visibility into inventory and costs for managers and at the same time, be simple to use for all employees. The company worked with IBIZ Consulting Services to customize a RoleTailored solution in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2.

The solution provides Halton Manufacturing employees with a unified view of all customer information through a single sign in, eliminating the need to retrieve information from multiple sources. With the RoleTailored client, employees are now working in an environment which is tailored for their specific role and is customized to improve role productivity. Employees working remotely can access Microsoft Dynamics NAV through a Web browser and benefit from the full product functionality and integration with Microsoft Office suites.

Benefits

With the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 solution, Halton Manufacturing has eliminated redundant data entry and reduced the number of errors from manual processing. Through the customized RoleTailored client in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, employees can easily view information related to their specific roles in Role Centers, which provide a single integrated view of the information and activities most relevant to their roles.

Whether for a bookkeeper, a warehouse worker, or a purchaser, each user profile in the RoleTailored client has its own Role Center, which has been designed to help the user or users as they perform their particular job.

Previously, managers within Halton Manufacturing were accessing information from different sources within the company. Now with Role Center, Halton employees can quickly access information and tasks on which to focus for that particular day. This visibility has improved the speed and accuracy of decision making.

Additionally, employees save valuable time with the single view in Role Center as they now no longer need to manually search data. Menu items and shortcuts in the Role Centers can be personalized by employees, giving them quick and easy access to functions related to the tasks they perform most frequently.

The deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV has provided Halton Manufacturing with a solution that seamlessly integrates across all areas of the business.


Microsoft Dynamics

Microsoft Dynamics is a line of integrated, adaptable business management solutions that enables you and your people to make business decisions with greater confidence. Microsoft Dynamics works like familiar Microsoft software such as Microsoft Office, which means less of a learning curve for your people, so they can get up and running quickly and focus on what’s most important. And because it is from Microsoft, it easily works with the systems that your company already has implemented. By automating and streamlining financial, customer relationship, and supply chain processes, Microsoft Dynamics brings together people, processes, and technologies, increasing the productivity and effectiveness of your business, and helping you drive business success.
