Dynamics Gp In Landscaping Supply Business: How To Automate Bamboo Palm Sale

Product Information

Landscaping Supply business is typically mid-size one and you have to order your merchandize (Bushes, Birch trees, Bamboo Palms, Concord Grapes, etc.). Landscaping is very competitive business and Corporate ERP system implementation might be critical in breaking through. Microsoft Dynamic GP is the Corporate ERP system to consider. When you are in Landscaping supply business, the things you might need are POS cash registers, tight control over your inventory in ERP system (in our proposition Microsoft Dynamics GP), efficient way to do your inventory physical or cycle count (every day you expect your lovely trees and flowers to die off, and your inventory balance should be written off or send back to the supplier if your contract allows you to do that kind of tricks). Ok, lets move on to how Dynamics GP could be implemented in Landscaping supply company:

1.Inventory Control and Warehouse Management System with POS elements. Dynamics GP has special suite of Distribution modules, where such WMS operations as Write offs, negative adjustments, cycle counts could be performed. Dynamics GP doesnt support such Barcode devises as scanners, POS terminals directly, this is why you should consider professional Retail and POS application, such as Microsoft RMS, or even Counterpoint to be implemented on the Retail floor

2.POS integration to Dynamics GP. This is our territory and we have preconfigured Microsoft Retail Management System integration package to Dynamics GP. Counterpoint has its own Microsoft SQL Server DTS package based integration options. For Counterpoint integration works on GL (daily sales) and Accounts Payable levels (to let you cut checks from Great Plains directly and trace collection management)

3.Diving to Microsoft Dynamics GP technology, probably you need help from your IT department. Microsoft RMS or Counterpoint integrations require some attention, and probably programming budget

4.Microsoft RMS versus Counterpoint. As general observation, Microsoft Retail Management System is probably closer to be presented and chosen , as this ERP application comes from the same provider Microsoft Business Solutions. Well on the other hand, Counterpoint might be more budget oriented and friendly

5.Being innovative and sell via ecommerce channel. This is absolutely great idea and Dynamics GP should be a good platform for ecommerce shopping cart integration. If you already have working ecommerce application with such industrial shopping carts as Magento/PHP, ASP.Net Storefront, we recommend you to keep the system and just take the route of ecommerce shopping cart connectors to Microsoft Dynamics GP. Alba Spectrum has ecommerce extension, where you can integrate your shopping cart in wizard driven manner
