Which Manual Processes Can Microsoft Dynamics ERP Automate and What Are The Benefits?

Here, we take a look at the manual processes that Microsoft Dynamics can automate and the benefits of doing so.

Microsoft Dynamics ERP systems have a vast range of benefits for businesses of all sizes and across all sectors. This software dramatically speeds up processes, provides excellent analytical insight into developing business trends and ensures that businesses are as efficient as possible. One of the main ways that Dynamics 365 speeds up processes is through automation. Here, we take a more detailed look at the labour-intensive manual processes that Microsoft Dynamics can automate and the benefits of doing so.

The Automation and Unifying Capacity of Microsoft Dynamics 365

Inventory Management

Inventory management is a process that can often be mired in a network of conflicting business departments and tasks when performed manually. The warehouse, deliveries, sales and suppliers all need to be on the same page, which can be challenging to streamline within a large organisation. However, Microsoft Dynamics ERP systems can automate much of the inventory management process. By using a centralised system, like Microsoft Dynamics ERP, you can pull data from the various waypoints along the sales and inventory pipelines immediately to ensure that you have real-time visibility of your current stock levels and then take the relevant action with just a couple of clicks.

The automation of this often complex process ensures that your organisation is as efficient and effective as possible, as well as reducing double-handling and improving long-term profitability.

Purchase Order Management

This is another complex process that can be improved via Microsoft Dynamics 365 automation technology. Manual order processing not only takes too many resources but is also prone to human errors. Instead of having to manually fill in complex purchase orders when buying materials, products, suppliers or services from sellers, you can automate that process with ERP tools. As well as populating POs with ease, with the help of ERP you can also automate shipping order generation, warehouse transactions management and other labour-intensive tasks to further save you time and money.


For those in the sales and accounting teams of organisations, manually submitting invoices for customers, prospects and suppliers can suck the time right out of the day – especially for large businesses. Through automation of invoice submissions, Microsoft Dynamics ERP systems can dramatically save time and money on labour and improve efficiency. The automation of this manual process gives sales teams more free time to develop client relationships and accounting teams more time to focus their attention on improving company’s cost-effectiveness and profitability. Microsoft Dynamics ERP can also automatically match invoices to receipts to ensure all sales and purchases are accurately tracked.

The Benefits of Automation For Businesses

As mentioned already, by automating a range of processes, businesses can greatly improve the efficiency of their operations. This means that they can focus their time and attention on developing new relationships and performing the tasks that will grow the business and sustain it into the future.
