Designed for Furniture & Soft Furnishing industries
Working in these unique industries can be daunting. Unlike other manufacturing establishments, manufacturing furniture is a highly complex process as the items you are making have already been sold. Not only are furniture items fashionable and in high demand, but customers are given promise dates that must be adhered to. The list of options available can sometimes be immeasurable and the fabric often needs to be ordered well ahead of the sales order even being received.
It is vital that the details of sales orders are accurate or it could be costly to rectify later. It is for this reason why Syscom, in conjunction with Microsoft and the Furniture Industry, have collaborated on an industry specific version of their end-to-end Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP Software. This version is designed by your industry for your industry answering questions and offering solutions to common industry problems such as, Dye batch matching; does the fabric carry a fire certificate?; stretch qualities; is there sufficient meterage to complete a job?; delivery schedule alignment with courier; In what order should I schedule production?; can I bulk pick to save time?; when should I order the frames and springs?; how do I capture the status of each order to relay to my customers?; are the details of this order correct?; are there any accessories required?; should the cushions have the same fabric front and back and are they the right size?
The software encapsulates all of the features contained within existing furniture systems, adding to them the extensive functionality and stability within Microsoft Dynamics AX.
