Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics solutions for industrial equipment manufacturers

Microsoft Dynamics integrated applications can be deployed quickly and inexpensively without complicated customizations and drawn-out implementation projects. Microsoft Dynamics solutions can help your company:

  • Enhance collaboration. Enable your people to collaborate globally with customers and suppliers to meet shortening lead times. Microsoft Dynamics solutions can help to provide more transparency in design and production status between engineers, manufacturers, suppliers, and customers. And design changes can be closely coordinated with production schedules, resulting in lower cost machines and more timely response to customer needs.

  • Fine-tune processes. Integrate your supply chain management, manufacturing, engineering, inventory, and financials functions to help improve processes and address more than just product or component manufacturing. For example, project management and planning tools can help you accurately predict the cost of the project phase by comparing actual costs with budgets throughout the different phases. Integrated IT systems can help you evaluate critical path and wasted time so you can identify and fix problem areas.

  • Communicate more effectively. Create the transparency you need for a smarter exchange of ideas and project status between engineers, manufacturers, suppliers, and customers. With Microsoft Dynamics solutions, you can easily and quickly respond to new challenges by having the tools (such as material costs and ECO and customer requests) to communicate business critical issues. Enterprise collaboration capabilities can help you work more efficiently with global suppliers on new designs, and they make effective use of your engineering resources.
