Business Central for Job Shops

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV) is one of the leading ERP systems to best meet the needs of your job shop. It enables you to track and compare estimated costs to actual costs throughout the entire lifecycle of a job which makes your business operate more accurately, quickly and efficiently. Reduce errors, complete customer orders on budget and on time and become more profitable with Business Central.

Job shops and made to order manufacturers often times find it challenging to provide accurate estimates quickly, because they don’t start out knowing the true cost of manufacturing the parts they are purchasing or making. That information is usually not easily accessible and often is not properly tracked by many Job Shops. The need for a robust ERP system can make all of the difference in your company’s ability to react to customer demands and provide estimates faster and more accurately. This will make your business more productive and help you save time and money.
