Ready for Simplified Catch Weight Management

Manually calculating catch weight is complicated and time consuming. Our food ERP not only provides automatic calculation of catch weight values, but also offers superior flexibility and visibility into catch weight transactions at every step along your supply chain.

Made Specifically for Variable-Weight Products

Enable Automation, Traceability and Transparency

If your business is in the meat, seafood, poultry or dairy industry, you know that no one product is alike. This variability is often difficult to work with because you can’t effectively price products without capturing their weight—plus, calculating this manually usually leads to errors that cut into your margins.

Instead, if you’re operating in one of these unique industries, you need a specialised food ERP system that can facilitate automated catch weight calculations and ensure weight values are tracked end-to-end throughout the solution.

Aptean’s catch weight management functionality starts with the ability to establish which products should be considered catch weight items, then tracks the weight values and invoice calculations for each item across your entire supply chain.

Add in the ability to establish weight variability limits or fixed weight requirements – plus highly-visible weight lines on every item tracking line – and you can see why our food ERP solution is best-in-class for handling variable weight products.

Get in touch with one of our experts today to find out how you can better manage your meat, seafood, poultry or dairy business.

A Comprehensive Feature Set for Catch Weight Management

We made our solution specifically to accommodate businesses in the meat, seafood, poultry and dairy industries leveraging strong catch weight functionality, including:

  • Quick startup in solution by defining unit of measure and specifying catch-weight products

  • Removal of all manual, error-prone pricing calculations for variable-weight products

  • Management of acceptable weight variability with lower and upper bounds (or fixed value)

  • Tracking of catch weight values end-to-end throughout the supply chain

  • Enhanced visibility into values across organisation using specific weight lines on each item

  • Invoice calculations based on catch weight with full documentation of weight values per item

  • Ability to transpose weight quantities on printable documents like sales invoices and item labels

Aptean Catch Weight Software Features

Automate Catch Weight Calculations

Remove all of your manual, error-prone catch weight calculations across your supply chain; after the initial setup, our solution tracks catch weight for each item from initial production through to invoice calculations without further intervention.

Deeply Track Catch Weight Values

When a catch weight item is created, an item weight ledger entry is created alongside it, ensuring the weight quantity of your inventory is tracked on an item, license plate and lot number level.

Enhance Visibility Across Your Organisation

For enhanced visibility, weight lines are created and linked to the item tracking lines that show the weight quantity to handle, weight quantity handled, weight quantity to invoice and weight quantity invoiced.

Enable Better Flexibility With Weights

Establish acceptable variability of weight values on an item-level (e.g. an item cannot weigh more or less than a specific amount) or dictate that items must be a specific fixed weight to continue down your food supply chain.
