Manufacturing companies across the board face mounting pressure to streamline processes and increase production while cutting costs. Outside of those typical pressures, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers have to consider lot traceability, advanced inventory management, and compliance with FDA regulations. These added stressors require batch manufacturers to look beyond what a basic ERP or MRP solution can provide.
Dynamics 365 Business Central, paired with Yaveon ProBatch, is a modern-day solution that streamlines the unique batch manufacturing process from sales and customer service all the way through production, inventory, distribution, and beyond.
With Business Central, batch manufacturers can remain competitive, reach business goals, and remain in compliance.
