Make-to-Order Manufacturing with Business Central

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central helps Make-to-Order Manufacturers meet the unique requirements that are not met through traditional manufacturing software. Business Central’s unique tools allow you to quote a price to the customer, receive and enter the order, order materials not stocked, manufacturer the product, and ship directly to the customer without passing through inventory.

Business Central Make-to-Order Solutions 

Make-to-order manufacturers often find it difficult to provide accurate estimates quickly because they begin with not knowing their true cost of manufacturing for the parts they are either making or ordering. These particular business insights are often times not readily available because they are not properly tracked by many make-to-order manufacturers. An ERP software that provides an end-to-end view or your organization will make all of the difference in your company’s ability to react to customer requirements and provide faster and more accurate estimates.
