Available to Sell Software
Originally developed by SI to solve the mystery of the “carcase balance” within red meat processing, our Plan to Produce and Available to Sell modules allow food processors to plan months ahead, whilst reacting in real-time to changing customer demands, raw material availability and key commercial challenges.
These food manufacturing solutions have been designed with the most complex multi-site, vertically integrated meat businesses in mind; incorporating kill, bone, retail pack and value-added product operations.
Food stock, raw material and orders – all in real-time
For food processors, reactive rather than proactive planning is the norm. As customers’ requirements are constantly changing, invariably, the retail forecast doesn’t match the order reality. This means that no two days present the same end requirement for production. That’s why SI developed Available to Sell.
Available to Sell shows a real-time view of stock levels, based on raw material and orders received. The moment your production plan changes or a new order is received, Available to Sell is automatically updated.
100% Visibility of stock volume, location, age and value
Through the combination of Plan to Produce and Available to Sell, food manufacturers will improve food manufacturing sales forecasting, and optimise planning and stock management.
Operators have an instant view of all raw materials on site, whilst sales teams will always have an accurate view of stock availability.
Optimise order fulfilment and be best prepared to cope with last-minute order changes.
Available to Sell user-friendly colour-coding provides 100% visibility of stock volume, location, age and value.
Analyse and segregate production, using run numbers.
Isolate any problematic batches with ease.
Using handheld tablets and touchscreen technology, view information on the move, on live and future stock, as well as the actual and unconfirmed orders to be satisfied.
And, Available to Sell’s data-rich reporting enables data-driven decision-making, planning and forecasting.
