Birlea move to Dynamics 365 with CPIT

We’ve doubled in size since we implemented Business Central. It runs our whole business process. So at the point of taking an order all the way through to dispatching and invoicing. Without it, I don’t know what we’d do.

CPIT move Birlea to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

When Dynamics 365 was first implemented by CPIT, we were informed that people were nervous about change but we knew it was the best business decision for Birlea. Since it’s implementation they have implemented many controls, one being an MRP system which helps with their purchase ordering. It helps the decide if they have too much stock coming in, not enough, and this aids their cash flow.

Now everyone is referring to the same information, in the same place rather than multiple spreadsheets. They love that it grows as they grow. It’s become their rock and without it they wouldn’t be able to function.

THE
CHALLENGE

Prior to Microsoft Dynamics, Birlea had numerous spreadsheets and were struggling to get any meaningful information out of their system.

They knew the results they wanted but just couldn’t get the information out. There were currency issues and they couldn’t value their stock properly. It was a nightmare for them.

THE
SOLUTION

To help streamline their processes, get better visibility of their data all in one location, and help with stock management, orders and sales, we implemented Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central into their business.

With Business Central as their core ERP, they now manage the entire business through one cloud based system. With the MRP system they can streamline their purchase ordering, allowing them to better manage their stock management, helping to aid their cash flow.

With everyone in the business now referring to the same information in one location, they have been able to ramp up their business growth.

• Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central implementation

• Better stock valuation

• MRP System for stock management and cash flow boosts

• Data and information accessible in one central location, from any device

• Full cloud ERP to run the whole business

• Industry leading security

We’ve been with CPIT since Summer 2010 when we first introduced Dynamics and they are fabulous. They understand our business and we have a great relationship with them.

STOCK OPTIMISATION, BOOSTED CASHFLOW & GROWTH

By using Business Central as their core ERP system, Birlea have been able to bring all their data from multiple sources into one system, so all staff can access the latest information to make better business decisions.

With new stock and sales management tools, Birlea were able to better optimise their stock, cutting down on over ordering, allowing them to boost their cash flow and meaning they have doubled in size since implementing Business Central.

The future is very exciting here at Birlea. We’re in the process of building our warehouse directly opposite. We’re also looking at implementing a full scanning and implementation warehouse system. We’ve doubled in size since we implemented Business Central. Without it I don’t know what we’d do.
