Dynamics GP California Reseller: Barcoding, eCommerce, Warehouse Management

Microsoft Dynamics GP consulting in California has specifics.  Port of Los Angeles faces huge volume of USA high tech and general merchandise export from China and South East Asia where these goods are unloaded and distributed USA and Canada nationwide.  Mid-size businesses in LA, Orange County, San Diego expect Great Plains Consultant to be familiar with such technologies as Supply Chain Management, Warehouse Management, Assembly on Order, Picking and Packing, EDI and B2B e-commerce.  It is normal practice when high tech items, such as computer parts, cellular phones, barcode scanners are received in Los Angeles and then shipped to Mexico, Central and South America – Dynamics GP consulting firm should have Spanish, Chinese and probably Brazilian Portuguese speaking consultants.  Let’s review Dynamics GP features and components, important for California customers in our opinion:

1. Generic Barcoding.  This technology is a backbone of such fields as Supply Chain Management, Logistics and Distribution, light Manufacturing or Assembly on Order, Consignment, Warehouse Management System.  There are various products to enable Great Plains modules for barcode scanning, and should also know the tools to open barcoding for virtually every Great Plains screen, master record or transaction/document.  These tools are Dynamics GP Dexterity, eConnect, VBA/Modifier, Visual Studio SDK for GP, Extender.  Microsoft Dexterity is still in very dominant position, as even if you are preferring Visual Studio extensions, you may still need custom tables created in Dex to accomplish your programming project

2. Generic eCommerce.  When you are larger participant in Business-to-Business or Business-to-Customer ecommerce, you may have a policy to implement all the components of your ecommerce web application (including Shopping Cart, gateway to EDI, Customer Credit or Debit card processing) in-house (or by your IT department programmers, or coders directly employed by your organization in India or Philippines).  We offer such ecommerce enabling technologies as Order Connector (where you surpass eConnect performance, as OC is coded in SQL Server Stored procedures with simplified business logic of Sales Order Processing and Receivable Management modules in GP)

3. Standard eCommerce Shopping Cart integration: Magento, ASP.Net Storefront.  For smaller and mid-market businesses we are offering our Dynamics GP eCommerce extension module.  Our goal is to enable ecommerce deployment in the matter of several hours, assuming that your business processes are pretty standard and you are familiar with such Great Plains concepts, as SOP Settings, Inventory Site, Inventory Item, Pricelist Catalogue and some others

4. Warehouse Management System.  WMS typically covers three functionalities, where there is often the case that these functionalities are also available in standard Corporate ERP business logic.  We are talking about Sales Order Fulfillment (on the warehouse floor via barcode scanning), Merchandise replenishment (inventory restocking) and Inventory Adjustments and Transfers (including Monthly or Quarterly Inventory Physical Count routine).  Our WMS module works as extension and sends transactions directly to Dynamics GP SOP, POP and Inventory modules tables.  We are also happy to help you with WMS implementation recovery or second opinion, as our WMS doesn’t require such consulting budgets as WMS integration (it works directly out of GP database by its nature)

5. Light Manufacturing or Assembly on Order.  Here we offer you the help in choosing between Dynamics GP Manufacturing Suite of modules or budget option – Distribution Bill of Materials.  MRP is probably the functionality in question (where you might be OK with very basic option, such as Purchasing Configurator or need the full featured MRP module)

6. Supporting older versions of Dynamics GP, Great Plains on Pervasive SQL 2000/Btrieve or Ctree, Great Plains Accounting for DOS, Windows and Mac.
