CAL Business Solutions uses Microsoft Dynamics GP to help manufacturing companies to improve quality, reduce costs and get your product to market faster. Microsoft Dynamics GP is a good fit for made to stock, made to order and engineer to order products. And both discrete and process manufactures.    Manufacturing for Dynamics GP

“Some of the other ERP systems that we looked at were more heavily manufacturing based, and we were looking for more inventory control and distribution. Dynamics GP gives the company enough functionality to manage the manufacturing process, without being overkill.” Rich Larkin, Innovative Medical Products.

“Using Dynamics GP Manufacturing, we have literally saved 48 work hours each month and we have accurate inventory and cost information.”  Olga Glynos, Beekley Corporation
