1. Save Money
Saving money happens naturally when you use Easy Bound Book and Business Central. You have the information you need to control your inventory level so that you can meet the demands of your customers. Your staff gets more done every day because they have the tools and information to make good decisions and provide reliable information to customers and vendors. With ERP for firearms, you may find that your current staff can handle 50% more business.
- Do More with Less
- Immediate access to information at your fingertips allows users to quickly answer customer inquiries, generate reports, monitor exceptions, etc.
- Eliminate dual entry in spreadsheets, separate systems and in employees’ heads.
- Reduce Inventory Levels and Extra Charges
- Robust planning and replenishment tools recommend purchases and production while still providing you the flexibility to adjust so you don’t buy or make excess inventory.
- Improve cash flow and reduce the likelihood of obsolete inventory with lean inventory levels, which in turn reduces the need for clearance sales and scrapping product.
- Order promising tools allow you to make realistic commitments to customers to not only improve customer satisfaction, but also reduce extra charges from expedited freight, overtime and penalties.
2. Save Time
Knowing the information you need makes your job easier. When your staff has that information at their finger-tips they can get more done because they can do it right the first time. Seamless communication between front and back office means faster response with fewer errors. See Video How has Easy Bound Book helped Atlantic Firearms?
