Sales forecasting software
All good planning starts with the ability to look ahead and forecast demand. But for food manfacturers with mixed customer groups – from food service to supermarkets – is a complex process.
To deliver optimum sales forecasts, a food manufacturer needs to have an overview of all business management processes and access to accurate data to enable informed decisions, including sales predictions over time, and variables, such as seasonality & grade of the product.
The ability of your sales teams to have a laser-like focus on food manufacturing margins and profitability could mean the difference between success and failure. SI’s sales forecasting software enables real-time, agile analysis and decision-making.
By taking a data-led approach with SI, you can import and export data at the touch of a button, allowing multiple users to review the historic customer information that supports detailed forecasting.
We can even help you set up multiple forecasts that all feed into each other, allowing you to forecast for a whole range of areas including:
- Annual sales volumes by customer or product
- Raw material requirements
- Production capacity and staffing
In-turn our customers can create bespoke reports enabling:
- Real-time visible dashboards
- Predictive analysis
- Exportable Excel spreadsheets
Why choose Food ERP from SI?
Most ERP software provides access to real-time information that can be analysed and processed into reports or dashboards to deliver timely business intelligence.
But for food manufacturers, a specialist food ERP solution, integrated with real-time shop floor data capture will always present far more.
And, in addition to food supply chain management, food ERP automates batch manufacturing, regulatory compliance reporting, QA and product recall management.
