  • Without sufficient overview and control, you run the risk of fulfilling customer orders with items that are unsuitable. For example, individual items could be produced as part of another customer’s private-label agreement. Or the items could require export or distribution approval based on the customer’s country or region. You may also have your own preferences around which of your locations you deliver the items from, and at which price. Cepheo Advanced Customer Approval lets you fulfil customer orders with confidence, based on comprehensive information.

  • For companies that work with batch-controlled production processes, decisions regarding purchasing, sales and consumption of individual batches often need to be made based on detailed information about the batches in question. In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, batch information is distributed across the solution, making it difficult and time-consuming to get an overview of this information. With Cepheo Information Display for Batch Products, you can view standard batch values and batch attribute values from multiple batches in a single overview, saving time and resources, and enabling more informed business decision-making. 

     

    • Simplify purchasing, sales and consumption processes for batch-goods 
    • See information from multiple batches in a single, consolidated view 
    • Enable faster processes and better decision making 
    • Minimize waste by selling and consuming goods that are close to expiry date 
    • Meet customer expectations around product attributes in the goods they purchase from you

  • Designing and printing labels is a critical business function. Without access to your crucial batch data, this can be a time consuming, error-prone, and manual process. In addition, when designing labels with an external label tool you often need to make modifications to the code after you copy it to your Microsoft Dynamics 365 application. Cepheo Label Extension for Warehouse Management dramatically simplifies this process by providing seamless access to batch master data in your ERP installation, so you can make label designs to meet your exact business needs and create multiple, different labels from a single label design. 

     

    • Save time and resources with optimized label design 
    • Reduce the number of label layouts you need to make 
    • Ensure data accuracy by referencing batch data from your ERP installation 
    • Use without technical expertise 
    • Fast verification of label layouts with instant label views and previews

  • It is time-consuming to create and maintain the documents you need to support your products and processes and meet the requirements of customers, vendors and regulatory authorities. It is also difficult to give your employees a comprehensive overview of the documents, files and notes that you have in your system. Cepheo Product Documentation Management addresses both of these issues. You can create and print standardized product and batch documents from within Microsoft Dynamics 365, and give your users an overview of the documentation that has been created, or attached, in the system for a particular record from across your data structure. 

     

    • Save time and resources on document creation and maintenance 
    • Create professional, structured documentation from within Microsoft Dynamics 365

  • Packaging materials often have an intrinsic value for your business or for your business partners. As such, it is important to be able to register and track the quantity, value and location of these materials within your own company and across your value chain of customers, vendors, carriers and packaging pool owners. This often time-consuming and error prone manual process can reduce the efficiency of your warehouse and logistics operations and affect your professional relations with your business partners. 

     

    • Register and track the quantity, value and location of packaging materials 
    • Have visibility across your customers, vendors and carriers 
    • Easy handling of processes and agreements with packaging pool providers
