Take Advantage of Food Specific Functionality

Enhanced workflow modules that force specific activities to be performed by a defined procedure
Ability to create contract agreements with customers and vendors

Quality test and target score sheets that can then be tracked
Advanced item traceability features with comprehensive lot control
ERP Features Built
for the Food Industry
Track growers, ranches, farms, fields and blocks, along with related details such as acres, crop years, planting dates, harvest dates and crop varieties. You can define multiple payees for every grower and process payments according to payment schedules that accommodate harvest advances and progress payments.
Create inbound receipts for your commodity inventory and include specific grower, ranch, farm, block and associated contract values. The system enables you to record weighmaster information, scale-in and scale-out weights, dates and times, and use container tare weights to determine the true net weight of a given receipt.
Maintain your inventory records according to two units of measure, making it possible to capture the exact weights of your random weight items. With the system, you can also handle and process items according to one unit, but cost and price them by the other, allowing you to sell an item by the case, but price it by the pound.
Identify the raw materials and ingredients that are used to produce your items by setting up recipe formulas. Our solution allows you to define standard batch and lot sizes, as well as scrap percentages and other anticipated losses, empowering you to achieve greater accuracy in forecasting production output quantities.
Complete back to front traceability that can tell you exactly where your materials came from, how they were used in your facilities and what was shipped to your customers. You’re able to segment customers related to a lot trace, granting you quick access to the people you need to contact in the event of a recall.
Establish hold reason codes, each with its own separate configuration that specifies what activities are and are not permitted. These codes are used to generate hold tags for lot records. And hold tags can be manually assigned by a user or automatically generated from defined settings.
List the allergens that are present in your products, then assign them to your raw materials and manufactured items. This functionality enables you to give your production scheduling personnel full visibility as to which upcoming activities will contain allergens, so that they can plan and schedule accordingly.
Set up quality tests, then build quality score sheets that address various areas of business. Record quality test results for characteristics such as moisture, color, size, temperature and packaging integrity against item lots. Aptean Food & Beverage ERP automatically passes or fails these results based on predefined test targets.
Record international shipments. Create booking activities that maintain shipping containers and their contents, delivery schedules, completion dates and more. Generate critical documents such as port schedules, customs documentation and broker information from within the system.
Record inventory movements, picking activities and production results in real-time with Aptean Food & Beverage ERP’s mobile warehouse solution. Using mobile handheld units with barcode scanning capabilities, you can gain complete control of your inventory and streamline your warehouse processes.
Manage your warehouse with license plate records that represent pallets and their contents, including item number, lot information and weight. Record movements, receipts, picks and shipments at the pallet level, and output your manufactured items directly onto license plate records.
Capture the scale-in and scale-out weights of trucks bringing product in and out of your locations, then transmit this data directly to your ERP, ensuring reliable, error-free data that can be printed on weightmaster certificates. Nationally certified, Aptean Food & Beverage ERP’s scale integration is compliant in all 50 states.
Track your multi-level promotions, rebates, broker commissions and payables, royalties and bill-backs. Analysis and tracking tools make it easy for you to plan, implement, and report upon the overall effectiveness of your sales campaigns and promotions.
Integrate with a multi-carrier application and instantly process your shipments through more than 100 carriers worldwide, including FedEx, UPS, USPS and DHL. Go beyond basic warehouse capabilities when you pick and pack individual parcels, cartons or pallets against every shipment.
There are several available upgrades that can be added to the system at any time. Aptean Food & Beverage ERP offers options for system customization for companies that require additional feature upgrades such as online storefronts, digital payments and EDI.
