Custom master data structures

The business software helps you to map interconnected business processes within your company and provides you with a means of straightforward management in your organisation. Intelligent master data management enables sustainable and consistent management of your master data company-wide. What’s more, BE-terna Trade offers several languages (multi-language) and currencies (multi-currency).

Simplification of the procurement process

The integrated supplier portal can help you to simplify your procurement processes and optimise cooperation with suppliers. Tools like supplier rating can help you to monitor supplier relations on an ongoing basis and to ensure your quality standards.

Vollintegrierte BI-Plattform

You can run analyses and perform ratings directly in the ERP system. Microsoft Power BI constitutes an organisation-wide self-service infrastructure for business intelligence that combines the shared use of data sources, dashboards, reporting services and online collaboration in one comprehensive and intuitive concept.

Transparent communication throughout the entire value creation chain

The ERP-solution allows you to effectively map all of the communication processes along your entire value creation chain. Easy to manage notifications and warnings on a process level, extended email delivery as well as comprehensive Sharepoint integration ensure that everyone is always up to date with the latest information.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

The powerful EDI module enables a fast, secure and automated exchange of all documents with customers, suppliers and hauliers. Thanks to the integrated connector solution, communications and business documents are exchanged with the business partner’s destination system direct from Microsoft Dynamics 365.

EDI and ERP from a single source – electronic data exchange integrated directly in Microsoft Dynamics 365 business processes.

In addition to the basic functions for orders (ORDERS), delivery slips (DESADV) and invoices (INVOICE), a number of other functions, such as VMI/VOI processes (consignment warehouse), haulage instructions and a diverse range of purchasing processes are supported. BE-Trade renders the use of add-on tools like MS-BizTalk, AIF or DIXF unnecessary. As a result, your EDI projects will be considerably less dependent on roll-outs and updates. Technological independence also guarantees a high degree of stability, something which is indispensable for successful EDI projects. The EDI module ensures high process quality, fewer errors and reduces your outlay for purchasing and sales drastically.
