Innovative technologies and the exponential growth of mobility are driving businesses to offer seamless experiences across form factors. Technology vendors are making major strides in facilitating new scenarios for users to work with hand-held devices by offering mobile ERP features that focus on improving employee productivity while on-the-go thus enabling them to stay connected to processes round-the-clock.
In addition, you benefit from improved quality of service, stronger business relationships, and more precise data capture. We’re outlined below six scenarios to showcase the immersive, engaging and action-orientated experiences that mobile ERP platforms such as Dynamics AX can provide to the workplace.
With Dynamics AX R3’s mobile capabilities, you can instantly and remotely approve business requests like budget, time sheets, expense reports, and purchase requisitions to reduce time spent on administrative tasks.
Mobile ERP capabilities allow you to capture time spent on projects on-the-go, simplifying administrative burden while augmenting working capital through reduced billing cycle time. You can view the list of timesheets, create new timesheets, and send timesheets for timely approval through your mobile device.
3. Expense Management
Mobile expense management apps enable dramatic reduction in time and effort required to submit, approve, and process expense reports. With Dynamics AX R3 ERP at your fingertips, you can capture and resolve expenses while traveling, and implement expense policies seamlessly. Through your mobile app, you can view existing expense reports, create a new report and even submit them for instant approval.
4. Production Floor
Production floor apps in ERP enable you to start production jobs, report finished jobs and also get a quick overview of the production jobs that need immediate attention from your mobile device. You can also view files attached to each job and enter necessary feedback. As the app is specifically designed for mobile devices, it offers improved readability while you’re on-the-go.
5. Warehouse Management
ERP mobile capabilities enable you to optimize your warehouse processes by eliminating paper work and reducing the number of errors significantly. Simple and easy-to-use graphical interfaces can be configured to fit the needs of individual users, reducing the time required for user training. With mobile capabilities, you can ensure improved productivity of your warehouse staff and improved accuracy of your inventory data.
6. Driver Companion App
ERP systems offer a driver companion app that enables your supply chain staff to view details such as address of delivery, the distance to be travelled and estimated time of arrival. Through the app, your staff can also interact with drivers and dispatchers and optimize the route based on time, distance, and traffic.
Mobile ERP capabilities are designed to solve the challenges that keep businesses tied to their desks. By extending ERP functionality beyond workplace PCs, data is made available whenever and wherever you need it, and empowers you to take data-driven decisions with immediate impact and results.
