Bakery & Cake Manufacturing
Complex supply chain management, multiple raw material formats, intake, silo and stock management, and complete recipe control – all are critical processes for bakeries and cake manufacturing operations. As your business grows, so do your challenges as any inefficiencies are magnified.
Manual processes and islands of knowledge become opportunities for error and inefficiencies that need to be mitigated.
When your business reaches critical mass and needs to sustain growth and build in further efficiencies, having an ERP business partner that understands the food manufacturing industry is essential. SI has been supporting food manufacturers for more than 26 years. Our food ERP and modular software is continuously refined to address the types of processes challenges faced by your industry every day. For bakeries and cake manufacturers, we’ve applied our know-how to address the issues across stock control, recipe formulation, manufacturing processes, resource management and traceability.
Our software delivers superior levels of control, checks and balances, all underpinned by real-time data and “one version of the truth” to support your ongoing success and improve profit margins.
Control your stock, support your margins
Stock management becomes an even finer balancing act as your business grows. Surpluses mean that too much cash is tied up in stock, whereas shortfalls impede production and result in poorer customer service. And it’s essential that the right ingredients are available at the right time to minimise wastage.
When stock and intake is linked real-time, with the help of SI, your business will always have a visual on actual raw material levels.
As demand for your products grows, it’s time to eradicate manual procedures and optimise production processes to increase efficiencies, improve product quality and overall consistency. If your business’ success means you’re now looking towards a higher level of automation, SI’s Recipe Formulation can transform production operations for bakeries and cake manufacturers.
By working with SI, your bakery and cake manufacturing operations can be transformed.
Right stock, right time
As batches are added in, not only does SI’s software verify that the right raw materials have been added and issue instructions to produce the mix, it also keeps all stock information accurate, based on what’s been issued into the mix, and manages all ingredient tolerances.
Yield and waste management
As yield ultimately determines profit margin on fixed weight products within bakeries and for cake manufacturers, our software monitors yield in real-time. By interrogating our yield and giveaway data capture, manufacturers can analyse outcomes and fine-tune their processes. For instance, to minimise defects that are occurring during production, such as burnt or crumbly products, or monitor giveaway that’s been generated by slicing.
