Food Manufacturing:Business Software That Works

“Business ByDesign – It does everything we need it to do and more”

Rob Sinton, TasteTech

InCloud Solutions has in depth experience with the specific requirements of the food manufacturing industry. With the help of SAP Business ByDesign we have enabled food manufacturing companies like flavour encapsulators TasteTech to maintain their status as leading players in their field.

With cloud based business software SAP Business ByDesign you get the flexibility you need to track products, improve quality control, optimize purchasing and deliver products safely to consumers by complying with the strict food regulations your industry requires.

Not only do you have tough regulations and traceability requirements, but you also operate in an industry where time is of the essence. There is a thin line between profit and loss and if you fail to keep control of import costs, manufacturing efficiency, pricing and wastage you could be losing out.

SAP Business ByDesign delivering for food manufacturing companies.

Here are just 2 examples of where SAP Business By Design delivers visibility and control for food manufacturing companies just where you need it.

Forward and Backward Lot Tracing

One of SAP Business ByDesign’s key capabilities is maintaining the batch numbers of any input ingredients, as well as the batch numbers of finished product.  This capability allows you to know the specific raw materials that correspond with specific finished product, and vice versa.  This means that even in the case that a recall is necessary, the recall process will be as quick and painless as possible.

Expiration Dates

A second notable capability is the maintenance of expiration dates. Keep track of the expiration dates of all product inputs and outputs, and manage your inventory via features such as alerts that you can implement in order to prevent expired inventory.  These alerts enable you to use your oldest raw materials first and ship your oldest finished product first; ensuring no inventory becomes expired.

Working with food means demonstrating compliance at a very detailed level, with everything from Hygiene Control and Instructional Data to the creation of an Audit Trail for every one of the products in your Inventory.

TasteTech say,

“SAP Business ByDesign provids us with a fully integrated solution that allows us to operate our business efficiently and with full visibility of information across all departments. We have also enjoyed significant cost savings by reducing three separate systems into just the one.”
