Some Other Important Vendors of ERP Manufacturing Software Solutions with Applications Possessing High Connectivity and Inter- Connectivity Potential (Part II) Further Considerations on the Special Qualities of Microsoft Dynamics AX (Axapta): How the High Degree of Interconnectivity Provided by Efficient ERP Manufacturing Software like Axapta can Bridge Together Simultaneously the Interests of Manufacturers, Wholesale Distributors, and Retailers to Result in a Mutual Collaborative Relationship and Reciprocal Advantages.
ERP Manufacturing Software Solutions with Applications Possessing High Connectivity and Inter- Connectivity Potential (Part II)
The fact that Axapta, the ERP manufacturing software provided by Microsoft, centers also on the needs of wholesale distributors, is an important and crucial element within this context, considering the nature of wholesale product distribution, whose advantages lie in the high potential of wholesalers for delivering a high volume of products in large quantities based on large-scale orders by customers at lower cost than retail.
It is clear that wholesalers benefit greatly from ERP manufacturing software solutions like Axapta; since they already have the natural advantage of selling high quantity orders at lower cost than retailers, using the inter connectivity benefits which are provided by Axapta’s applications will promote even further their potential for quick and speedy payment processing/ accounting, distribution/ shipping to customers, thus greatly increasing their profit margin at low ERP cost (and low total cost of ownership), as well as augmenting the volume/quantity of products they distribute to their buyers and clientele. Since the manufacturing and distribution industries are inextricably linked, bridging the interests of both manufacturers and wholesale distributors in particular has the positive effect of speeding up productivity levels and leading to faster delivery of products from manufacturers through wholesale distribution - which itself allows for the distribution of a higher number of products on a per-unit basis then through retail distribution.
In this manner, then, such ERP manufacturing software solutions possessing valuable applications directed at enhancing productivity, that cater to manufacturers and wholesalers, also enable interconnectivity between the manufacturing, wholesale, and also retail distribution industries; facilitating business transactions and direct, real-time communication between the three sectors through the exchange of technical data pertaining to research, design and development, product manufacturing and delivery of information, which is accessed and shared among and between the employees of both parties (manufacturer and distributor, whether the latter be a retailer or wholesaler) in an interchange of ideas based on mutual collaborative effort to achieve maximum customer satisfaction by providing high quality products (in the case of a wholesaler, mass- manufactured in bulk, and delivered in high quantities per order, and obviously at lower cost than retail).
The potential of high quality ERP manufacturing software solutions that have specific erp applications and software modules meant to ensure a high level of proper connectivity, sharing and exchange of information and data between all company levels (and also accessible by outside parties such as affiliates and business partners around the globe), also provides a great opportunity for manufacturers employing ERP manufacturing software systems to form partnerships and mergers with multiple entities; from wholesalers, suppliers, distributors to retailers. And this strategy is especially advantageous if the company intends to sell its products at both retail and wholesale prices. In fact, some companies opt to employ both methods - particularly in cases which involve with in its customer audience a specific high-end customer base and regular, select clientele of buyers which keep ordering low- volume quantities of a specific particular product or genre of goods at a frequent rate.
