DiCentral case study

DiCentral helps companies maintain a competitive advantage with effective supply chain management on Microsoft Azure

Built on Microsoft Azure, DiCentral’s SmartTurn integrates inventory and warehouse management processes to provide real-time visibility of inventory levels and higher control over the movement of goods within and across warehouses.

Boost operational efficiency and the bottom line

SmartTurn offers quick deployment, ease of integration with other systems, affordable functionalities, and high scalability to help organizations adapt to dynamic market forces and manage long-term planning.

Streamlining operations and driving the bottom line

Using an inefficient inventory management system or depending on manual processes means companies must deal with a lack of control over the movement of goods across locations and the inability to update customers and trading partners with real-time inventory and order processing information.

DiCentral uses a Software-as-a-Service model to deliver its SmartTurn warehouse management solutions to small and midsized businesses. To enable SmartTurn to scale with customer demands and growth, DiCentral required a cloud platform that would support customer choice and developer needs, with a single code base for deployment in the cloud and on-premises, and offer customers synchronization with familiar Microsoft technologies.

DiCentral built SmartTurn on Microsoft Azure for its ease of use and deployment. SmartTurn uses Azure Active Directory to authenticate and authorize users, enabling them to easily and securely access SmartTurn via single sign-on and synchronize with their company’s Active Directory. SmartTurn on Azure offers a centralized system that integrates inventory and warehouse management processes to provide businesses with real-time visibility of inventory levels and higher control over the movement of inventory within and across warehouses.

With quick deployment, ease of integration with other systems, affordable functionalities, and high scalability to address unique business needs, DiCentral SmartTurn on Azure helps organizations reduce operating costs, stock-outs, and costly data-entry errors while boosting inventory accuracy and customer satisfaction.

“Microsoft Azure made the transition to the cloud easy. It managed the platform, redundancy, and security, allowing us to focus on development. We ported our solution and completed the Azure Active Directory Program with support from the Microsoft Azure team.”
