FEATURES – WHOLESALE & DISTRIBUTION
The following Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management accelerators are also included in the Base and Advanced packs:
Product Search helps by providing new query tools to find a product or a released product on the standard forms (product and released product, sales order, sales quotation, purchase order), plus attributes management by variant and attributes management by category to more easily find the right attribute.
PO Quantity Allotment
Organizations who need flexibility in how they split purchase order requests, find it frustrating with too much manual intervention in repeatable and timed PO administration. The accelerator helps by saving distribution rules by vendor, creating automatic distribution in post-MRP processes, and allowing users to manually launch planned orders using the rules in place.
Item Life Cycle
The accelerator helps to organize, control and simplify data input, plus generate traceability via an audit trail of all data modification and inputs.
The accelerator helps by; working with BOM assemblies and product lines in Dynamics, it allows the user to prepare the “kit” at the point of order and take the components out of stock immediately. At the same time, the “kit” can be added directly into the customer’s order.
The accelerator applies retrospective discounts via credit notes at the end of the financial period, identifying different rebate contracts with different percentage levels, dynamic generation of provisions attached to financial transactions and contracts and identification of invoices that fall within rebate contract frameworks.
Vendor Auto Evaluation
The manual entry of data in standard Dynamics 365 to assess supplier performance can slow down productivity, the Vendor Auto Evaluation accelerator helps by automatically feeding relevant fields from operational transactions, to assess selected vendors’ performance based on multiple criteria.
When distributors are dealing with customers within a Group, sales order entries can be a challenge; particularly when dealing with high volumes of customer orders manual intervention of delivery and billing information slows down the process and can lead to errors. This accelerator helps by reflecting your customer structures and roles within the supply chain (especially when used in conjunction with the Customer Hierarchy accelerator), boosting the automation of your EDI import when entering customer orders, thus increasing productivity.
The accelerator follows a purchase’s physical progress aligned with Incoterms. In other words, to split a purchase in three steps: 1. Receipt of the goods in the system as soon as the organization owns the goods. This receipt will be document-based (example: customs agent via bill of lading, packing list…). 2. Registering goods in transit during transportation. 3. Physical receipt of the goods at the final place of delivery.
