Inventory forecast

Optimize customer service with inventory forecasting

In an extremely competitive business environment, effective and well-functioning inventory management is essential. The warehouse is for many companies the central focal point, and the administration of the warehouse can significantly affect a company's success and customer retention. An important part of inventory management is the process that involves balancing customer service and cost control. By reducing inventory, inventory costs are reduced, but at the same time, the risk of losing sales due to inventory shortages increases.

Using cutting-edge AI technology, the sales and inventory forecasting extension uses past sales data to predict future demand, helping to prevent inventory shortages and ensure cost savings by making the most of your warehouse space. When a shortage is identified, Business Central streamlines the replenishment process by automatically generating vendor requests. In this way, Copilot in Business Central helps you to limit storage costs without affecting the service level, so that you ensure a high level of customer satisfaction as orders are fulfilled on time.

Predict delayed payment

Predicting late payment

An important parameter for the financial health of your company is an efficient handling of the company's receivables.

The late payment prediction extension helps you predict whether outstanding sales invoices are likely to be paid on time. If it is expected that a payment will be delayed, you have the option to change the payment terms or methods for the customer in question.

By being at the forefront and proactively addressing potentially late payments and making necessary adjustments in good time, you can minimize overdue receivables, reduce the risk of non-payment and thus ultimately improve your earnings and finances.

Cash flow analysis

Achieve stability in your finances with cash flow analysis

A thorough analysis of cash flow is a crucial indicator of the company's liquidity, profitability and financial sustainability, and analyzing your cash flows is essential to achieving future-focused planning for your business. The ground-breaking AI technology in Business Central delivers an in-depth cash flow analysis that helps you monitor and assess the liquidity position in your company.
