Easy, automated and feature-rich Intercompany
The Intercompany app extends the intercompany capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to provide you with 3 main benefits:
- Spend less time
- Automate more
- Manage in more details
The features of Intercompany
Instant execution of transactions
Allow us to begin with a technical feature. The Intercompany app can utilize webservices to execute transactions.
It may seem like a technical detail, but in your daily work, this means that transactions in and out of Business Central are executed instantly. No more overnight batch processes.
Inventory look-up across companies
From a Sales Order or a Purchase Order in your sales company, you may select a specific item and look-up the current inventory status at your intercompany partners. You can select the location code for the order line, and when the order is created at your intercompany partner, it will inherit the location from the order line.
You have complete insight and control when creating orders in your sales company – and your selections will flow to the order at your intercompany partner.
Automated Drop Shipment
When you create a Sales Order in your sales company and you release it – then a Purchase Order is automatically created – and through the Intercompany outbox it is instantly sent to your intercompany partner company, where a Sales Order is created.
The purchase-sales process across companies is automated as much as possible. Less manual handling for you.
Automated order changes across companies
When you change a Sales Order Line in the sales company – after the purchase has been sent to your intercompany partner – then the change will automatically be forwarded to you intercompany partner.
Updates are automatically processed in both directions. If your intercompany partner changes the confirmed delivery date on their own Sales Order, the change will be replicated (sent) to the Sales Order in the sales company, when released.
Posting across companies
When a Shipment is posted on a Sales Order at your intercompany partner, the transaction is automatically returned to the sales company through the outbox and inbox in each company – and in the sales company a Receipt is posted on the Purchase Order, and a Shipment is posted on the Sales Order.
When a Sales Invoice is posted at your intercompany partner regarding the purchase from your sales company, a corresponding Purchase Invoice is automatically created in the inbox of your sales company, and you can post it if you want to.
Automated posting of Sales Orders
You can configure the intercompany partner to automatically post the Sales Order when it is created from the Sales Company. You can select if the Sales Order should only post shipments, or also invoices.
Automated posting of the Intercompany journal
You may also configure the intercompany partner to automatically post journal records received from the Purchase Invoice in the sales company.
