  • Using Dynamics 365 to Overcome Distribution Challenges


Skyrocketing demand, supply chain uncertainty and the pandemic, amongst other things, have caused shortages and delayed deliveries throughout global supply chains in recent years.

To compete and survive, distributors must adapt their operations. Distribution ERP software offers complete control and visibility of an entire organisation, to ensure an agile response to challenges.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 (D365) is one of the best ERP software solutions available for distributors. In this article, we look at how Dynamics 365 can help distributors and the logistics industry overcome some of the challenges they face, including supply chain uncertainty, overseas shipping, the importance of e-commerce and warehouse efficiency.

Supply Chain Uncertainty

Supply chain uncertainty can cause serious disruptions including delays and inventory issues.

Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management allows you to connect your entire supply chain to your organisation to ensure you can limit the amount of uncertainty within your network. 

  • You can connect your system to provide visibility of ‘in-transit’ goods which may be coming from other countries or regions based on your location. It allows you to see the current inventory levels and stock held in transit, giving accurate and up-to-date information.

  • D365 supply chain management allows you to score suppliers based on a variety of factors to inform your employees of the most reliable and consistent suppliers, which helps to improve lead times and improve supplier relationships.
  • You can onboard new suppliers quickly, and improve your supply resilience with multisourcing functionality.
