Are you getting supplies to where they're needed while managing funds responsibly?
Supply chain management solutions that help you ensure accountability without compromising on service levels
On a daily basis, non-profits grapple with challenges most businesses never have to face. Funding is not always consistent, staff is limited, and budgets are always tight. While for-profit businesses focus on efficiency and cost-effectiveness to save money, your goal is to make sure much-needed supplies get to their destination while managing funds responsibly—without compromising on the speed and quality of services you provide—so you maintain your legitimacy and reputation.
The bottom line is accountability to keep service levels on track while safeguarding funding. In a grant- and fund-driven world, the entire supply chain must be reportable and transparent. But even with widely varying requirements from different grantors and funders, you need to avoid offline, manual processes.
The key is to manage and control your supply chain—regardless of how far it reaches and despite challenges like connectivity in more remote areas—while making the most of your assets and resources.
HSO’s Supply Chain Management can manage the entire supply chain, from procurement to inventory control to distribution and reporting, to help your non-profit fulfill your mission.
Supply Chain Management is built on an integrated framework,
powered by Microsoft’s proven technology:
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Supply Chain
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
Microsoft Power Platform – Power Apps/Power Automate/Power BI
Manage the entire supply chain
With HSO, your organization can transform and automate key processes and workflows throughout the supply chain:
Ensure Accountability. Get the visibility and control you need—regardless of where you operate—through a single source of truth for data, so you can manage every penny and nail budgets. This also supports compliance as well as detailed and timely transparency in internal and external reporting to grantors and funders.
Increase Responsiveness and Scale. Make decisions faster and more responsively; improve program planning and budgeting by providing timely and accurate data on spending and program status.
Enhance Speed and Timeliness. Respond faster in a crisis by reducing time to process procurements and other transactions; get the right goods at the right
time by optimizing orders to decrease time spent on purchases.
Make Best Use of Resources. By reducing manual processes, putting easy-to-use systems, and taking advantage of more accessibility via the cloud, you can attract and better utilize limited resources, focusing them on where they can do the most good.
Support Research & Development. Centralized data helps with research and
development efforts. By taking advantage of dashboards, workflows, and a
configurable, user-friendly interface, your organization can also reduce training time, increase user adoption, and empower your employees.
