"Where are my goods?"

This question often comes up in customer conversations. Effective order management is indispensable for timber traders. It allows optimal organisation, coordination and tracking of orders of any kind, increases efficiency, reduces costs and ensures high transparency. Good order management facilitates planning, monitoring and communication between departments and strengthens your company's competitiveness.

Efficient pricing and precise calculation

The pricing and calculation functions in acadon_timber are of great importance. They enable accurate pricing, precise cost calculations and profitability analyses. This helps you optimise your profit margins, control costs and stay competitive. Calculate your sales prices based on product group-specific margins, strategic purchasing prices or wood indices – all automated in acadon_timber.

Integrated financial accounting

Once a document is entered, this information is available in all areas of the software. For example, if you enter a purchase invoice for a timber delivery, the delivery note and invoice in our solution are automatically linked and the prices listed in the invoice are also directly used for the valuation of the goods. This prevents discrepancies between financial accounting and inventory management and always provides the correct current figures – including for your accounting evaluations.

Usability

The clear interface within the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central interface offers your company numerous advantages. It allows easy navigation, speeds up onboarding time and improves collaboration. Through clear presentations and fast data access, your employees can work more efficiently and make informed decisions. Invest in a user-friendly interface to optimise your business processes and boost productivity.
