The Job Shop

Dynamics AX / Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Job Shops can range from equipment repair facilities that specialize in maintenance, repair and overhaul to specialty manufacturing firms, both small and large in size.  Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Enterprise and formerly Dynamics AX) has the features and functionality for the complex job shop.  Clients First has the experience to implement the solution correctly.

Without utilizing ERP that is process oriented, jobs are plagued by disjointed scheduling, outdated spreadsheets, documents and inefficient work flows that are difficult and time consuming to control. This becomes even more complex and time absorbing when analyzing multi-level jobs. With a fully integrated system such as Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, more comprehensive and structured information is available faster, requiring far less administrative effort. Timely access to relevant information enables managers to better leverage resources, devote more time to quality control and ultimately meet or exceed customer expectations.

Dynamics AX / Dynamics 365 Operations has the Projects foundation that provides the repository for Jobs with all the real time data from:

  • Quote and Estimating to Order
  • Resource Planning and Scheduling
  • Time and Expenses
  • Master Planning
  • Inventory and Warehouse Management
  • Procurement and Requisitioning
  • Additionally some companies will need one or both:
    • Service Management
    • Production Control

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is available as a software as a service model on the Microsoft Cloud or on premise.   Let us help you decide which deployment is best for your Job Shop.
