Global specialty foods manufacturer reduces operational costs and achieves dramatic, long-term growth with an integrated ERP system.
When you are in the food industry, one of the main requirements is that you need to be aware of the way the consumers’ tastes are changing. Doing so will enable you to offer an array of healthier food items that are packaged attractively to appeal to the changing customer requirements. To gain a reputation as a quality food manufacturer and meet compliance requirements you need to have a process in place to ensure traceability.
Traceability and sourcing quality raw material will also help you mitigate concerns around recalls and damage to brand reputation. Planning demands can help you manage distribution lines and ensure that expiry of food products due to delays are minimized. An excellent ERP system would also ensure that you can work on increasing the shelf life of products and reduce equipment downtime by helping you plan production accordingly.
As a young, expanding company, our biggest challenge was managing our tremendous growth. We were open to new technology and its possibilities, and we needed an ERP system that would grow as our company grew. What we didn’t need was an ERP system that would bury our business.
