Unlock End-to-End Automation in the Food Industry With ERP Software

29 Ago 2023

Food factory workers observe automated manufacturing lines running.

To overcome the ongoing skilled labor shortage, food and beverage businesses must strive to operate as efficiently as possible with the personnel they have. Process automations are critical on this front, as they not only save employees valuable time but also eliminate the need for manual data management that would be error-prone.

Purpose-built software for food and beverage companies can enable many convenient and time-saving automations to calculate values, fill forms, create orders and much more. These solutions also help promote efficiency in a general sense thanks to the standardization of processes and an orderly, centralized database for all involved parties.

Among the industry-specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions available, Aptean Food & Beverage ERP boasts robust automations that help our customers get more done each day and truly streamline operations from one end to the other. Read on to learn more about them, or check out our latest infographic, Maximize Efficiency by Automating Processes with Aptean Food & Beverage ERP.

Automations for Procurement

By automating as many of your food and beverage business’s procurement processes as possible, you can not only minimize the need for repetitive manual tasks, but also help ensure that you’re never caught without the materials you need for production. When these critical matters are handled automatically by the system, you effectively remove any room for errors of memory.

Here are two of Aptean Food & Beverage ERP’s procurement-related automations:

  • Our software’s production planning features automatically identify supply-demand imbalances, which allows you to establish or revise your purchasing plans to address any additional needs.

  • The vendor item catalog can automatically create purchase orders based on your preset criteria and your suppliers’ current inventories.

Automations for Inventory Management

While the warehouse of a food and beverage manufacturer is often hectic, conducting inventory management activities by hand is tedious and too cumbersome. What’s more, you need to be confident that your stock records are accurate, so it’s really best to trust in automated and fully digital means on this front.

Our food ERP offers automations that can facilitate faster inventory management while improving precision:

  • The shop floor production tools of our solution automatically account for both consumption and production output, immediately updating your inventory records in the central database.

  • Aptean Food & Beverage ERP’s expiration management functionalities automatically deploy notifications to assigned personnel when products are approaching expiry.

Automations for Production

Productivity—which, in the food and beverage world, largely comes down to how many products your facilities, equipment and staff can make in a given timeframe—is inextricably linked with efficiency. By automating production processes, you can kick your operations into a higher gear and crank out more finished goods at the end of the day.

With Aptean Food & Beverage ERP, you’ve got a leg up with these production automations:

  • The production scheduling module can automatically schedule orders according to your predefined parameters, making the most of your uptime.

  • Our system’s product specification features automatically generate product details using raw material values, simplifying labeling and record-keeping.

Automations for Quality Control

Making sure that each and every item manufactured in your facilities is up to your brand’s exacting standards can be a monumental undertaking, especially if you’re still using manual processes and pen-and-paper records. Modernizing your quality control efforts will empower staff in that department to concentrate on mission-critical responsibilities while relying on technology for the simpler tasks.

The quality control automations that our food manufacturing ERP provides enhance efficiency and visibility:

  • The dedicated quality control tools of Aptean Food & Beverage ERP automatically prompt product standards verification at critical points in the manufacturing process.

  • Items that fail quality checks are automatically placed on hold so that your team can either rectify the issue or dispose of the failed goods.

Automations for Sales and Fulfillment

Selling products and getting your customers their orders plays a big role in keeping your company healthy and profitable, so it makes sense to lean into automations for faster results and consistently satisfactory outcomes. Unburdening your sales and delivery teams of mundane data-entry tasks frees them up to do what they do best.

Unlock another level of sales and fulfillment success with these automations of Aptean Food & Beverage ERP:

  • Our customer item catalog automatically notifies salespeople of inventory replenishments, giving them real-time insight into the immediate availability of your offerings.

  • Sales orders can be automatically generated from Excel files that your customers send via email, no data re-entry or physical forms necessary.
