You're probably aware that your Office 365 applications are optimized to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC).

Businesses have been leveraging the collaboration of these powerful tools to streamline a wide range of processes for years. But, is it that easy to enter an order into BC from Office 365 Outlook? In short, yes. Here's why.

After a few quick clicks through the Business Central assisted setup, users will have access to vendor, customer and contact insights directly within Outlook.

When using the Business Central insights from an incoming email, the sender's address can be used to setup a new contact and associate that contact with a customer or vendor.  Once linked to a customer or vendor, key information such as current balance, past due amount, open quotes, orders and history are available in a concise and compact dashboard in your inbox.

From here, users can have an informed dialog without ever leaving their email.  Additionally, users can enter quotes and ordersagain, without leaving their email inbox.  Insights are also "smart" and BC Outlook can make item suggestions based on order history. By suggesting the last items purchased or sold based on quantity and price, the user can have a jump start on converting an email into an activity in Business Central.

There’s no argument that these are challenging times for discrete manufacturers. The pandemic has brought with it a complex set of challenges, and manufacturers are facing a growing skills gap for workers, among other issues. With problems ranging from erratic supply-chain disruptions to employee shortages, charting a steady course can be harder than ever. Manufacturers need all the visibility, intelligent manufacturing processes and visibility to navigate in this business climate.
Careful management of allergens and organics is increasingly important in the food and beverage industry. Manufacturers must closely manage and track both in the production process to avoid cross-contamination, label properly, and meet the expectations of customers, consumers, and regulators. Considering the growing consumer demand for organic and allergen-free products, the payoff of investing time and resources in proper management is worth it. People are paying more attention – and a higher dollar amount – looking for specific products that meet their dietary and lifestyle preferences. If you can reliably produce products that meet those preferences, you can capture their business, build customer loyalty, and remain competitive in your market. Today, properly managing allergens and organics doesn’t have to be a complex, multi-system process. An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with industry-specific features can centralize key aspects of food and beverage manufacturing, saving manufacturers time, reducing risks, and helping them make consistent, quality products with every batch.
Microsoft power platform release plans and Dynamics 365 release plans introduce news features. Numerous new features have been added to the Dynamics 365 applications in this edition. These enhancements include user experience upgrades that will be enabled automatically for users in production environments beginning in October 2021.
In the food and beverage industry, managing every stage of production, from the storage of raw materials to processing, packaging, storing and shipping the final product, is even more difficult when you factor in variables such as freshness, batch control, and allergen or organic requirements.
