b4dynamics’ Extended
ITEM SAMPLING

For many companies in the process industry, there are requirements for an ERP system that are not met in the standard of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain Management (MS D365 F & SCM). In order to close these gaps in the management and documentation of product samples within the supply chain, b4dynamics has developed the Extended Item Sampling solution, which improves the monitoring of sampling within the ERP software: Samples can be classified via a mobile device while they are being moved in the inventory, and storage conditions can also be documented.

The key for any company that needs to provide and store samples during the delivery and production process is the ability to assign sample IDs, provide on-time storage information and specify a sample type to any given sample. The lack of these features in D365 F&SCM is added – among other functionalities – by b4ds’ extended item sampling solution.
