ERP solutions for the food and dining industry.

The food and dining industry, deeply diversified and complex, encompasses an enormous variety of products and manufacturing methods and includes both large retailers and smaller, independent companies. The management of such a varied marketplace – in such a way as to ensure hygiene, safety, product traceability, and lot tracking – is no simple matter.

Hygiene, safety, and lot tracking from receipt of raw materials to finished product

In a rapidly evolving global market such as the food and dining industry, software applications provide better access to information and more efficient sharing of resources all along the production chain and, thus, play an essential role in product innovation and in the development of new markets. Constant pressure from competitors, the erosion of profit margins, and the ongoing challenge to provide value-added services to the consumer are some of the biggest challenges facing the entire food and dining industry, from producers to distribution channels and from retailers to sales outlets. But that isn’t all.

Delays are common in retrieving the information present in a company’s diverse areas of operation and bringing it together in a useful way. That being the case, it’s obvious why reducing costs and time-to-market becomes so important.
