With Business Central built-in intelligence, you can predict when and what to replenish in inventory. Purchase only what you need with dynamically updated inventory levels. This helps you reduce shortages and avoid lost sales. Automatically calculate stock levels, lead times, and reorder points. Suggest substitutes when requested items are out of stock. You maximize profitability when you get recommendations on when to pay vendors, use vendor discounts, or avoid overdue penalties. Moreover, you prevent unnecessary or fraudulent purchases through approval workflows.
