In this new era of digital manufacturing, it forces businesses to work quicker and smarter to beat out the competition. By utilizing this module in Business Central your company gains the competitive advantage of creating more goods in a more efficient manner.

1. Managing Inventory
When using the manufacturing module in Business Central, your company will be able to better manage inventory. Within seconds, a list can be displayed with all the different items that are in stock.

Users working in the front and in the back office will have access to the same information creating a more harmonized work dynamic.

3. Unify Production Data
Another one of the biggest benefits of using the manufacturing module in Business Central is analytics. This goes beyond just knowing what is in stock and what needs to order but analyzing trends within your business. Such trends can be spotted in the supply chain, production process, inventory management, sales, profit margins, and even customer behavior.

Don’t Get Caught in These Five Major Implementation Problems for Business Central!

 

Here at WebSan Solutions, we’ve had a lot of hands-on experience when it comes to implementing Microsoft Dynamics Software. From our experience, we’ve gathered five major problems a company would want to avoid in order to succeed in implementing Business Central.

1. Don’t have the IT department and leadership executives make all the buying decisions. Include other employees that will be actively using Business Central from the finance, operations, manufacturing and warehouse departments. They can provide constructive feedback to make Business Central work best with your current business processes. 

2. Give yourself time in the implementation process to go from the decision-making phase to the launch phase. If this process gets rushed, there's a high chance that the project won't be successful. Try implementing Business Central in smaller stages. Rushing the process would only create a lot of unnecessary problems and make employees feel overwhelmed.

3. Implementations, especially the more complex ones, can take up to half a year to be completed. Best practices would indicate that you need to come up with a plan. Putting a plan into effect will set the stage for where the business is headed, reduce any employee confusion and avoid running into problems.

4. If you don't invest in employee training, there's a risk of disrupting the implementation process. The process of upgrading to Business Central can be a frustrating time for employees. Keeping open communication about the implementation status and providing a substantial amount of training creates more involved employees. Make your employees feel more involved with this process and become more well-rounded when it comes to using Business Central.

5. Many companies neglect the importance of testing the newly installed software before the go-live date. Your employees need to test out Business Central before the go-live so they can bring attention to any technical problems and if everything is in working order. By missing this part of the implementation process, the system might not be ready for go-live and could result in an unsuccessful launch.

When it comes to implementing Business Central, there needs to be a plan put into place. If you avoid the five major problems listed above, your business will strive towards a successful implementation.

Top Six Reasons to get EDI for Dynamics GP!


If a business wants to be successful in this modern digital world, it must remain innovative. Operating as a fully digital firm goes beyond just having an electronic communication system installed. It’s about running the company using ERP software to streamline the business and create B2B integration. In this new digital era, the demand for B2B integration is on the rise and is turning into a requirement in order to work with most companies.


Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents. It allows businesses to send documents to one another using an electronic format. This standard template can then be read by different systems to locate information. The most common documents that are sent using the EDI template are purchase orders, purchase invoices, advance ship notices, bills of lading, inventory documents, shipping documents, payment documents, and even some custom ones.

The Benefits of EDI

Reduced Costs
By sending a document using EDI, a company can reduce its costs on printing, reproduction, storage, filing, and document retrieval. This also frees up the individual to focus on more important tasks.

Improved Data Quality
One of the most common areas for human error is data entry. By using EDI to import the data from the document into the system, there is less room for error resulting in better data quality.

Shorter Business Cycle
Companies using EDI will have a shorter business cycle because they receive the documents quicker. A transaction that use to take up to five days to complete can now be completed within an hour. Orders and payments will be processed a lot quicker which will increase the cash flow of the company.

Improved Data Security
EDI is a secure way to transmit data from one computer to another. Encryption and decryption programs along with passwords are used to ensure that the data is safe while being transmitted.

Ease of Auditing
Since EDI is transmitting all the data into the system, there is less room for any errors so therefore auditing will become much easier. Reports can be created for all the EDI transactions and then presented to the auditor, making the whole auditing process quicker and easier.

Strategic Business Benefits
Adding EDI into your current Dynamics GP environment will strengthen businesses and create strategic business benefits. Using digital transactions, businesses can always be up-to-date with all the transactions statuses. This knowledge will help the business to make better and faster business decisions going forward.

Introduction to Power BI: What is Power BI?

Microsoft Power BI can help company owners take a closer look into their business using stunning dashboards and visuals. They can also be optimized to locate and display only the most critical data. This data can then be used by company owners to review and streamline their business processes wherever it may be needed.

There are a large variety of data sources that connect to Power BI, and the list is continuously being updated. This data can then be altered and placed as a visual, measured or calculated column and then is added to a dashboard. It’s possible to share this information with colleagues at work by granting them access right from within Power BI.

These are six main components that make Power BI into such a strong and powerful tool.

Power Query: Importing and formatting the Data
The Power Query allows you to import data from sources such as SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, DB2, and the list goes on. It can also extract data from multiple file formats such as CSV, Text, and Excel. The imported data can be formatted by adding columns, charts or any other visuals onto the dashboard.

Power Pivot: Relationship Creating Tool
Relationships can be created using the Power Pivot function inside Power BI. Power Pivot is a powerful tool used to review data and create visual data models. To link tables together, Power Pivot can analyze the databases and see if the tables have any matching data inside. This function also allows the user to create calculations using the data, such as a calculated column or a measurement.

Power View: Data Visualization Tool
Power View is used to transform the data into interactive charts, graphs, maps, and other visuals. These visuals will only display the most important data since the data can be filtered using Filter Panes, slicers, and cross-filters.

Power Map: 3D Geospatial tool
The Power Map feature is used to create charts for Geospatial data into a 3D visual. Using the Geospatial users can display a metric visually on a map using visuals or even a heatmap. The maps are connected to Bing and are constantly refreshing to display real-time data.

Power Q&A: Answering and Question search engine
Users can ask the Q&A any questions regarding the data and get the quickest answers. Make sure to use natural language that the system would understand such as “Number of Products by Location.” Click Here for a list of words and terminology that Power BI Q&A recognizes.

Microsoft Power BI has six main components that make it such a powerful tool. It has become one of the most popular programs amongst small business owners to analyze their data. Watch this “Power BI 101 Webinar” video that goes beyond just the fundamentals of Power BI. This video will demonstrate how to create a dashboard using Power BI.
