iFacto manufacturing: ERP software for manufacturing companies

With Microsoft Dynamics ERP you have the tools at hand to streamline your manufacturing process and optimally serve your customers with high delivery reliability. With our supplement specifically for manufacturing environments you enjoy all the advantages of a standard ERP system, complemented by all the needs customary in your manufacturing environment!

Manage your manufacturing parts lists

Manage your recipes, parts lists or Bills of Material (BOM) in one integrated system for all your semi-manufactured products and finished products.

You obtain transparency in the current material list, the previous versions and any temporarily applicable adaptations. Control your manufacturing orders and write off consumption during manufacturing with your manufacturing parts lists.

Control of consumption can take place using different methods: forwards (according to planned totals with the creation of a manufacturing order), backwards (according to planned totals with the booking of the finished product) or manually (according to actual totals).

Manufacturing support from solid manufacturing planning

Delivery reliability based on optimum planning for both Make-to-Order, Make-to-Stock companies, assembly companies, etc. is a key concept in your manufacturing environment. Use Microsoft Dynamics ERP and the iFacto tools to fine-tune your manufacturing planning with orders, historical sales and forecasts.

A manufacturing proposal (MPS) is generated based on manufacturing requirements that you can optimize with the tools that iFacto makes available by reducing setting times to the extent possible.

Besides clear capacity summaries, the optimization of the supply chain and the facilitation of work contracted out also form part of your manufacturing planning.

Integrate your ERP on the manufacturing floor

With the integration of your ERP system on the shop floor you are always up-to-date on all current data. Your manufacturing itself is also guided with the most up-to-date information and orders. There is also the integration of your ERP system with machines and weighing appliances based on web services.

Ensure the accurate supply and removal of raw materials, packaging, semi-manufactured products, finished products to and from your manufacturing environment with the wireless RF scanning modules.

Directly print your labels in production from your ERP system, so your products are correctly identified and provided with a bar code.

An impressive 250 percent growth for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

10 November 2020
At the recent DIRECTIONS4PARTNERS event for all Microsoft Dynamics 365 partners in Europe, Middle East and Africa region, Microsoft published data regarding the performance of her new cloud ERP solution for small and medium business, Dynamics 365 Business Central. And there was all reason for happy faces! The number of organisations using Business Central grow with 250 percent compared to the same moment last year. An impressive result that gives all parties involved confidence for a prosperous future. At last year’s DIRECTIONS event in Vienna, Microsoft reported over 4.000 customer organisations around the world who implemented Dynamics 365 Business Central. A great number considering that all the traditional Dynamics NAV partners had to prepare themselves to become ‘market ready’ for the cloud. Just think about training their staff and migrating their add-on solutions to the new and modernized development environment. This year, Microsoft general manager for D365 Business Central Mike Morton announced an accelerated growth to 10.000+ customers. So that is a growth of 6.000 new customers in total with an average of 500 new customers per month! All these organisations trust on Business Central SaaS to be their source for taking countless small day-to-day operational decisions as well as their important strategical decisions. Many of them also use the solution as the backbone of their digital transformation processes.                                         Microsoft did not only report a growth in the number of customers. The number of transacting Dynamics 365 BC partners also had a phenomenal growth. That number went up from 750 a year ago to 2.200 partner organisations today covering over 100 countries worldwide. This number is expected to keep growing since there are still many traditional Dynamics NAV partners on their way to this new product and the cloud. A tangible result of that is a growing number of certified D365 BC apps on AppSource – Microsoft’s global app store for Business Central. Today there are more than 1.000 of these apps certified, published and available for use.    Morton shared some more interesting insights with the partner community. While the focus of Dynamics 365 Business Central continues to be organisations with 10 to 250 employees, the largest BC customer today counts over 1.000 named users where the smallest customers have less than 5 named users. Most of the customers have between 20 and 40 named users.    Microsoft has a clear goal for the near future. The company is committed to make Business Central “the world’s best ERP solution for small and medium businesses”. One of the focus areas for the development department is to streamline the implementation – the ‘onboarding process’ in Microsoft terms. The goal is to make the onboarding process both easier, faster and cheaper. The improved onboarding process combined with the fast-growing number of reselling partners and the growing number of available apps holds great expectations for a further rapid growth in the near future.
