The company wanted to introduce one integrated system, which would cover all parts of Villa Verde activities. They main goals were to automatize documents and information flow process, better supervision over the delivery process, shortening delivery time and getting easier access to data for reporting and planning.
The project of implementing B2B platform based on Microsoft Dynamics in Villa Verde is innovative in the field of cooperation with partners when it comes to change in realization and in organizing processes. The system ensures data consistency and historicity, the possibility of integration with external solutions (partner platforms) and scaling as the company develops and its requirements change. A modern database platform ensures the highest level of security for transmitted documents and data.
IT solutions with a high degree of modernity were used during implementation.

This solution enables Villa Verde to build flexible reports for the client and partners, with the possibility of working via the Internet.
The implementation of an electronic B2B platform based on the Microsoft Dynamics system has helped increase the efficiency of work at Villa Verde in many areas.
Document exchange processes, sales and shipments were improved. The order process is more efficient, and this directly transfer into the higher level of partner satisfaction. A very important benefit is also the reduction of errors related to manual data entry by employees. Electronic documents are now used extensively, which not only reduces costs, but also helps to protect the environment.
An additional positive impact of implementing a B2B project is the introduction of technology that allows to start cooperation with large partners, including foreign ones, who require electronic communication standards (EDI). What is more, the use of a reporting system allows to collect faster all the information needed to organize work in company. Thanks to this, the management of Villa Verde can make more accurate decisions.
