ArcherPoint Collaborates with Smart Software to Provide Smart Inventory Planning & Optimization for NAV
ATLANTA, GA — June 5, 2018 — ArcherPoint Inc., a Microsoft Dynamics ERP Gold Partner and full service provider for Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365, is excited to announce the successful integration of Smart Software’s cloud-based Inventory Planning and Optimization software with Microsoft Dynamics NAV to create Smart IP&O for NAV.
Smart Software is a global provider of next generation 100% web-based demand planning, forecasting, and inventory optimization solutions. ArcherPoint created the connector to integrate Smart Software’s tools with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The new integration brings the cloud-based Smart IP&O (Inventory Planning and Optimization) into the latest version of Microsoft’s ERP solution. By seamlessly integrating strategic planning in Smart IP&O with operational execution in Dynamics NAV, business users can continuously predict, respond, and plan more effectively in today’s uncertain business environment.
Jim Benson, ISV Strategies and Programs Director with ArcherPoint says, “Smart Software helps our customers by delivering insightful business analytics for inventory modeling and forecasting that drive ordering and replenishment in the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. With Smart IP&O, our customers gain a means to shape inventory strategy to align with the business objectives, while empowering their planning teams to reduce inventory and improve service. In today’s supply chain, it is no longer enough to simply manage inventory. It must be optimized.”
The Smart/NAV integration makes all transactional data in NAV, such as shipments, sales orders, receipts, inventory on hand, and more, available in Smart IP&O’s data model. Smart IP&O brings this data to life leveraging field-proven analytics. This enables executives and their planning team to identify operational inefficiencies, accurately forecast demand, model the financial and customer impact of current and proposed inventory policies, and return optimal planning parameters and forecasts to drive replenishment.
Greg Hartunian, CEO of Smart Software stated, “Businesses that leverage inventory optimization and forecasting technology are able to better understand their operations, lower costs, improve customer service, and outperform the competition. We look forward to working closely with ArcherPoint to help our joint customers achieve these key benefits.”
