Understanding Food Industry ERP
Greek philosopher Heraclitus is attributed with coining the saying, “There is nothing permanent except change.” The wisdom in his quote is abundantly clear when you consider how rapidly the food and beverage industry has evolved over the past several years.
Gone are the days when the biggest concern for businesses was delivering a viable product to market. Now, organizations like yours must account for stringent government traceability regulations, disrupted supply chains, consumer demands for sustainability and a host of other vital considerations.
Thankfully, the technology at your disposal has also been advancing with the times.
Food ERP: The Brains Behind the Operation
Dedicated food ERP software is considered the foundation of any good digital transformation initiative. That’s because these all-in-one, organization-wide solutions serve as a “single source of truth” and include features for many of your critical processes, including lot traceability, quality control, inventory management and more.
One of the key advantages to be gained from deploying an ERP at your company is the digitization of all your critical data. These systems make it much easier to ditch the outdated and inefficient paper-based methods of record-keeping that may still persist in some of your departments, as they not only eliminate siloes and serve as a highly accessible source of information but also can automate data collection via integrations with barcode scanners and smart devices.
Food ERP systems also help you manage your supply chain with complete bidirectional visibility. That helps you stay prepared in the case of a contamination or full-blown food safety emergency, as you’ll be able to track the issue back to its source rapidly and execute your recall plan right away—with some steps even automated by the software.
Finally, consider that advanced offerings like our own Aptean F&B ERP can be implemented via the cloud, lowering your up-front costs and maximizing the flexibility of your platform. With disruptions now a common occurrence and working from home and on the road a necessity, it can be invaluable to always have that option available.
