As a Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP user, you already know the importance of unified data, connected business systems and powerful AI.

But too many companies with next-gen ERPs still use manual processes at the line-level. Unfortunately, this invites low-quality, error-prone data into your ERP. Even the best AI can’t generate useful predictions with inaccurate data.

Many D365 users have overcome this challenge by implementing cost-effective mobile inventory management solutions that incorporate barcode scanning.

Here are some of the reasons why:

Why Mobilize Your Microsoft Inventory Management?

Built specifically for modern D365 Supply Chain Management users, the right mobile barcode solution supports accurate data collection, efficient workflows and increases visibility.

Solutions like RFgen’s Mobile Apps for Microsoft Dynamics 365 extend inventory transactions to the point-of-work with mobile barcoding technology and wireless hardware. By removing paper and manual data entry from your workflows, your workers can quickly collect perfect data by scanning a barcode.

Scanned information transacts instantly with your D365 ERP in real time. This puts crucial data into the hands of your workers when and where they need it. No second guessing or recounts.

And with high-quality data, you can be confident in the accuracy of your D356 system.

Microsoft Mobile Inventory Case Study

Brabant Alucast, an automotive parts supplier, upgraded its legacy ERP system to Microsoft Dynamics AX. They also integrated a Microsoft-approved mobile inventory solution with barcode scanning at the same time. With a primary focus on shop floor automation, the company saw its stock reliability increase from 70% to 96% in just six months. The more efficient workflows also allowed Brabant to reallocate two full-time positions.

Users running the latest D365 Supply Chain Management version may see even greater upticks.
