Consumer Goods ERP Software
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Software (formerly Dynamics NAV) For Consumer Goods
Consumer goods distributors face big challenges selling to the fiercely competitive and rapidly evolving retail industry. Intense price stress at the retail level puts pressure on distributors and leads to smaller margins. Alternatives, such as mail order, catalog sales, and direct sales, bypass the traditional distribution channels altogether, forcing companies to add value to their services to retain customers.
In the past, supplying the right product at the right time was enough to be successful. Today, your company must do more. Business Central can help you succeed in the consumer goods industry with financial, supply chain, and customer relationship management (CRM) software functionality. Business Central's flexible solutions can give your company a significant competitive advantage by you helping to: meet retailers' demands more effectively, lower the cost of your operations, and improve customer satisfaction levels.
