Item Design Specifications

for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
Do you spend more time filling out documents and sifting through spreadsheets for product information than being creative? Are you frustrated with the different interpretations of product information from different sources? Do you want to eliminate redundant data entry, human errors and communication gaps?
From design to sales – a single source of product information
Break down communication barriers while maintaining product information accuracy.
 
 
Reduce data entry errors and improve design to production lead times.
 
 
A single source of product information for Design, Development, Purchasing, Marketing and Sales.
 
 
Item attributes and specifications are automatically updated in Business Central’s native tables eliminating the need for re-entry.

Sourcing products from a global network of suppliers spanning multiple time zones and, with limited access to technology in many cases, makes maintaining current and accurate product specifications a difficult task.

 

One of the biggest sourcing challenges for companies today is the constant manual logging of product specifications into Excel and communicating this information across the supply chain via email. Importing, exporting and consolidating important product data from spreadsheets and emails can be a tedious and complex endeavor. To make a measurable impact on your top and bottom lines, you need to implement proactive and collaborative product specification strategies that involve the suppliers and production teams early in the product lifecycle.

Item Design Specifications (JBA-IDS) is a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central extension designed to bridge the product information communication gap between Design, Development, Production, Purchasing, Marketing, Sales and your global network of suppliers.

 

By leveraging the Dynamics 365 Business Central’s native architecture and its natural integration and connectivity to other Microsoft’s tools, JBA-IDS provides real time product information that is disseminated throughout the organization, without the need for interfaces or painful data loads.
