Transforming Dairy & Farming Business
The food and beverage industry is defined by its growing complexity and the perpetual need to innovate new products in order to keep pace with consumer and major retailer demands. When we add to this the concerns over food safety and the introduction of new regulatory acts, the investment in technologies such as an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is not only a wise choice, but a necessary one.
DairyPro ERP system is a business process management software that allows a business to integrate all of the critical aspects of its operation by using a system of integrated applications to manage and automate functions related to operations, services and human resources.
The ability to integrate multiple systems for all the areas in your company is a very important feature.

Sales and inventory management are an essential part of a food and beverage ERP system. inventory optimization is critical because ingredients (as noted) have a shelf-life. Recent studies confirm that over 50% of food and beverage companies make mistakes anticipating demand, either wasting stock or losing sales.

This data is then linked to sales order data to provide managers with critical information about stock levels, stock location (if applicable) and replenishing stock to optimum levels.

Recipe control is a complex task which handles a lot of technical and descriptive information like formula, quantity, costing and historical information. Also, units of measurements within the data can differ and the software must be able to handle conversions, as well as version control and formulas to ensure product and process consistency
Food and beverage manufacturers have some of the strictest regulations in place in order to achieve certain levels of certification. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authority over more than 80% of the U.S. food supply. This statistic provides the evidence for the level of scrutiny and regulation that exists in this industry. In addition, it highlights the importance of having DairyPro solution that integrates and automates regulatory compliance.
