e-Con can be used to create and update Master Data in a controlled and easy way. Where Microsoft Dynamics ERP requires users to work with multiple forms to maintain Master Data, e-Con presents all relevant information in one screen with an easy workflow or questionnaire. The rules engine automatically fills in existing information and indicates mandatory fields, eliminating double-data entry and ensuring new information is complete and correct.
Scenario 1: Your business has grown, and you’re moving to a rich ERP system that may include industry-specific ISV solutions. That’s very good news. But you know growth is more complex than it was even 5 years ago. If you’re a manufacturer, you may be looking at an issue that the best industry ERP system can’t resolve for you: managing product information that’s grown along with your product portfolio. In the past, adding items for new products might include an item number, pricing, description, and a handful of other requirements. Not so in today’s sprawling, virtual marketplace. Your suppliers come from all over the world, and systems are integrated all over the world. The technology used for products requires entry of granular data that’s simply impossible to handle through ERP alone or with a workaround spreadsheet solution. Growth is not good news if your people are managing thousands of items, and every item includes or is associated with volumes of specific information. Learn how e-Con “keeps it simple” for adding items.
Scenario 2: Adding new products to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 can involve thousands of item entries and as many challenges. One mistake can lead to flawed entries, inaccurate margins, and at worst deliveries that are riddled with errors. Companies tat are moving to more complex ERP need more than a fix. They need to capture increasing data volumes and extremely granular data. All data must be fed into automated systems accurately and quickly, and emerge as centralized information that’s available to internal teams, and often third parties. And just as critical, data needs to be reusable across the entire supply chain. If you’re like e-Con customer BERG, that increasing load extends to adding items that lead to complete and accurate products. Here’s how BERG manufacturer tapped into e-Con to keep growth moving and get their focus back on track.
