Step up to modular food ERP
Is your food business ready to step up to a new level of real-time control?
By Rob Stephens, CEO of food ERP and software specialist, (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.
We also know that the one-size-fits-all ERP approach can’t ever be the panacea to resolving complex food manufacturing process improvements and gaps, and invariably leads to a plethora of work-around solutions.
SI’s “One version of the truth” from every interaction, every process, every ingredient and operation, from supply chain right through to the customer.
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 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 right through to the customer.
From abattoir, meat processing, catering butchers and food services, fresh produce, fish and seafood, cheese and complex recipe-managed products; SI’s developed a wealth of applications for every segment of the market.
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.
Dynamic production planning to address product proliferation and order changes
Take for example, how food processors need to adjust to address further product differentiation and proliferation, often driven by the media’s influences on consumer trends. The impact can shift demand at a moment’s notice, but with SI’s know-how and integration, you can flexibly plan, schedule production line changeovers in seconds, fulfilling all customer demand.
Our reporting tools are proven to be key to uncovering ways to:
- achieve higher production throughput and agility
- deliver greater yields and reduce waste
- succeed in longer-term planning benefits.
And our real-time Active Dashboards will help every operational department, from the factory to the boardroom, visualise performance and trends throughout the day.
Whilst for recipe-based 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 “carcass balance” within red meat processing. our latest “Plan to Produce” and “Available to Sell” modules allow businesses 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 businesses in mind; incorporating kill, bone, retail pack and value-added products operations.
