Any business that involves working with equipment would need to spend considerable resources on asset management. Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) would include maintaining assets across different business functions, facilities, and locations. These assets can be building, machinery, ships, vehicles, etc.

To fully understand how the Microsoft Dynamics 365 asset management module can help you, you need to learn why an efficient EAM strategy is necessary for any company. Here are the primary reasons why EAM is essential:

  • To perform adequate maintenance of assets, it would require you to have access to complete asset information and historical maintenance to forecast and schedule future maintenance efforts efficiently
  • Streamlined scheduling and maintenance are possible with well-managed incoming requests and equipment issues
  • Create a definite maintenance timeline for preventive asset maintenance
  • Gain complete visibility of maintenance costs and reduce them with well-planned maintenance measures
  • Equipment is the foundation for production. Hence, well-maintained assets will drive productivity and improve performance across departments in an organization
  • Help you make informed decisions about the asset lifecycle so investments can be made based on well-established data

Leverage Microsoft Dynamics 365 for better asset management

To ensure easy and competent asset management cycles in your organization, you can utilize the advanced module — asset management in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management.

Regardless of the number and types of equipment your company operates with, the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Asset Management module helps optimize these assets' performance by better managed maintenance. Production equipment, various machinery, and vehicles would mostly include the types of assets this module enables you to manage. Apart from helping you handle an array of assets, the D365 asset management module can also support different types of industries.

The above circle depicts the different areas that can be improved by the Microsoft asset management module. Let us look at how this module benefits each aspect of asset management:

Dynamics 365 asset management

1. Request Management: This module has the functionality to manage requests for equipment maintenance easily. Whether it is preventive or corrective asset maintenance requests, you can organize them in a hassle-free manner. You can easily let your production workers or other personnel create maintenance requests

2. Work order Management: As most of the equipment is used for production, managing work orders becomes an essential asset management aspect. D365 asset management module has streamlined the work order management for you. Here the work performed and the work needed is described, and cost and faults are registered

3. Scheduling: Scheduling the maintenance and repairs is of paramount importance as it makes sure that assets are in proper condition for uninterrupted production

4. Spare parts tracking: One of the critical components that need proper maintenance is spare parts. The availability of spare parts is not always abundant, and unavailability may delay crucial processes that would ultimately cost the business. With a preventive maintenance strategy combined with spare parts forecast, you will avoid costly stock-outs preventing you from operating your machinery

5. Journals and statistics: Having access to updated and accurate historical information about the assets is crucial for forecasting and scheduling asset maintenance for enhanced asset management. It will also increase your ability to make well-informed decisions about investments of your assets.

6. KPIs: As the equipment is one of the most critical assets of any business, good maintenance of the assets will ensure your key performance indicators are all doing good.

7. Cost control: Irregular and inefficient maintenance will increase asset breakdowns and the equipment's downtime, which will only cost your company more. With robust preventive care, you will cut down the costs caused due to repairs and downtime.

With these benefits, D365 asset management can be instrumental in optimizing your equipment maintenance efforts.

Like other industries, food & and beverage companies must initiate strategy planning and change management at the very start of bringing their business systems to the cloud. That’s the best way to avoid additional costs, effort, and business interruption. And the trick is to define value with a people mindset.
Right now, companies in the food and beverage industry have a lot on their plate. A key question how to meet all demands and at the same time reach all your business goals? Unifying your technology platform, business strategy and operations is necessary to stay ahead of your competitors. Companies have to keep up with increasing consumer demand for products that are healthy, ethical and environmentally friendly while at the same time meeting regulatory standards and minimizing food waste. And, of course, they still have to do the usual work of keeping margins high, preparing for emergencies, ensuring product quality, staying innovative and minimizing risk at every stage of production.
Artificial intelligence is changing the way businesses operate in a fundamental way, and Microsoft's Copilot is at the forefront of this transformation. With its integration into Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform, the future of customer relationship management and enterprise planning has never been more promising. Let's explore how your business can benefit from it. Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere. The latest McKinsey global research calls 2023 a breakthrough year for generative AI tools. Less than 12 months after generative AI hit the market, one-third of survey respondents say they can’t imagine their lives without these tools. By 2025, Gartner says 30 percent of outbound marketing messages from enterprise organizations will be generated from an AI. Today, 87 percent of organizations say AI will give them a competitive advantage. We believe they are right. Your business is on a path that will intersect with AI — if it hasn’t already.
With Microsoft Copilot users can create ideas and content faster just by describing what they need with the help of AI and natural language processing. Users will save time, boost productivity, reduce workloads and also break down data silos. So, the hope is that AI — and Microsoft Copilot — will help everyone do more with less. Since Microsoft introduced Dynamics 365 Copilot — the world's first Copilot for both CRM and ERP — along with Copilot in the Power Platform, there is great anticipation about how these advancements will impact the way we do business. For example, Microsoft introduced multiple built-in scenarios for their products: Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales and Viva Sales augment a seller’s actions with AI-powered insights, such as generating content suggestions based on customer emails. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service can give agents 24/7 AI-powered support to find resources to resolve issues faster. Microsoft Supply Chain Center enables Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management customers to better predict and act on disruptions. Microsoft Power Apps allows users to build an app just by describing what they need in natural language. Beyond that, Microsoft Azure AI tools and services allow you to build your own smart agents and services. This gives every company even more opportunities to stand out by using customer and employee knowledge and insights to increase loyalty, decrease turnover and build long-lasting relationships. With this launch, Microsoft democratizes AI, making AI capabilities formerly only available to IT and AI specialists accessible to a larger set of workers. Those among the first to capitalize on this opportunity and leverage the potential of AI will of course be ahead of the competition.
