Step up to modular food ERP
Food ERP – the only way to deliver “one version of the truth”. Is your food processing company ready to step up to a new level of real-time control?
By Rob Stephens, CEO of food ERP and supply chain management software leader, (SI) Systems Integration
With the everchanging local and global challenges faced by food processors, it’s clear to me that there is an urgent need to move away from typical sticking plaster process fixes and islands of efficiencies within factories. Otherwise, the step-change that’s required, to make the industry more profitable and sustainable, can’t ever be realised.
In addition, the one-size-fits-all ERP software approach can’t ever be the panacea to resolving complex food manufacturing process improvements. This systems choice by food processors invariably leads to a plethora of work-around solutions.
SI’s approach has always been different. Through the combination of our modular food ERP, driven by our renowned, fully-integrated shop-floor data capture, our food manufacturing software solutions are built to fit your business.
The result? “One version of the truth” across:
- every interaction
- every process
- every ingredient and operation
from supply chain management right through to the customer.
SI’s developed a wealth of applications for every segment of the market, including:
- Abattoir management
- Meat processing
- Catering butchers and food services
- Fresh produce processing
- Fish and seafood processing
- Cheese and dairy
- Complex recipe-managed products.
SI’s food ERP always delivers “One version of the truth” across your food factory and supply chain. From every interaction, every process, every ingredient and operation, through to customer delivery.
Whether it’s dealing with customer demands, compliance with legislation or the impact that getting things wrong has on profitability, we understand the challenges that food processors must overcome every day to be more successful.
Our dynamic production planning addresses issues faced in a high product proliferation environment
Take for example, how food processors are constantly adjusting to the demands for further product differentiation and proliferation, often driven by the media’s influences on consumer trends. When trends can shift demand at a moment’s notice, SI’s know-how and integration means that flexible planning, scheduling production line changeovers in seconds, to fulfil all customer demand is second nature.
Our reporting tools are proven to be key to uncovering ways to:
- achieve higher food manufacturing throughput and agility
- deliver greater food processing yields and reduce waste
- succeed in longer-term planning benefits.
And our real-time Active Dashboards will help every operational department, from the food factory to the boardroom, visualise performance and trends throughout the day.
Whilst for recipe-based food processors, we ensure that not only is every mix is right but that every pack has the correct label, complete with relevant information on ingredients and allergens.
Struggling to manage carcass balance in kill, bone and retail pack?
SI’s latest food processing modular food software has been developed to resolve the mystery of the “carcase balance” within the red meat processing industry. Our latest “Plan to Produce” and “Available to Sell” modules allow meat processors to plan months ahead, whilst reacting in real-time to changing customer demands, raw material availability and key commercial challenges. Both solutions have been designed with the most complex multi-site, vertically integrated meat processing businesses in mind; incorporating kill, bone, retail pack and value-added products operations.
