ARDMORE, PA, November 15, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The ERP Software Blog announces the release of a new white paper written for companies who want to use ERP software to increase productivity and at the same time outpace their competition. 25 Brilliant Ideas to Outsmart Your Competition with Microsoft Dynamics ERP is an upbeat look at how real companies are using Microsoft Dynamics ERP every day. Twenty one companies contributed ideas for this report based on their own extensive experience in the ERP software field. This white paper is meant for a non-technical audience, and focuses on how companies are using the technology to improve their businesses, rather than on the software itself.
"It is not often that you get a glimpse into what companies do to outsmart their competition. But this white paper gives specific examples, across several industries, and is sure to spark new ideas in many organizations," says Anya Ciecierski, Editor of the ERP Software Blog.
The entries include examples of companies using Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics SL and Microsoft Dynamics AX. They span a variety of industries including a food manufacturer, an engineering firm, a restaurant chain, a movie studio, a physician's clinic, a non-profit, a correctional facility, an office supply distributor and many more. Each example of increased productivity is connected to the way it builds their competitive advantage.
For example read about:
- An Office supply distributer that uses their true cost of inventory to win pricing negotiations.
- A long-term healthcare organization that shaved a full month off the budgeting process.
- A food manufacturer that minimized the costs and impact associated with product recalls.
- An oil and gas company that can measure the profitability of 100+ delivery trucks.
- A wholesale restaurant equipment distributor that reduced warehouse staff and decreased fulfillment time by more than 50%.
- A marketing agency that easily manages complex subscription billing, growing from 16,000 to 100,000 subscribers without increasing expenses or headcount.
- A truck part manufacturer that uses a Digital White Board to set the production schedule and automatically assign jobs.
- A Hollywood studio manages credit limits and collections to maximize profitability of rented space.
Jason Carter, Editor of PartnerCompete.com comments, "Finding the right business solution is not about feature comparisons or the lowest price. It's about value. And the combination of software and services that deliver a competitive advantage. This great white paper highlights 25 compelling stories of the tangible benefits...the competitive advantage...gained by businesses who have bet their success on Microsoft Dynamics."
