•Purchasing. Your company might use tenders procedure and you would need requisition, proposals and quotes against requisition, then purchase order and receiving. Deploy Requisition Management and Purchase Order Processing/ Receiving modules
•HR. If you have unionized employees – you may need to take a look at HR module, where you track employees certification, skills, training programs, hiring process and promotions
•ISO 9000. You can cover ISO compliance reporting, assuming that you have either customized Inventory Control system or Field Service suite implemented. The best and recommended reporting tool – Crystal Reports. Usually you create SQL views and stored procedures and base your Crystal Report on these views and procs.
•Technology Advise. When you implement your new system and making modifications to existing one - you should try to predict which technology will stay for maximum number of years, plus you should try to avoid dependence on one vendor/provider - if you need to change Microsoft Business Solutions partner - how difficult to find new one with technical skills and customization expertise to maintain and further advance your custom system?
