Your Industry Challenges

Production Uptime

In a high-volume industry, production uptime is critical in maintaining profitability and continuity of supply. Uptime data and production metrics are recorded in real-time to alert executives to uptime percentages, helping them drill down on real versus theoretical capacity and make informed equipment purchasing decisions.

Batch Processing

Companies who manually manage production scheduling and planning risk running into bottlenecks and creating process inefficiencies. Aptean’s food and beverage software solutions help frozen and prepared food manufacturers complete large orders all at once as materials arrive to get ahead of expiry dates and quickly switch between batches to make the most of production time.

Shelf Life Management

Manufacturers of prepared and frozen foods deal with challenges around condensed or long-term product life cycle management. Using technology that sends ingredients with similar expiry dates into production helps keep turnaround times tight and ensures that finished goods are shipped to customers with ample shelf life. This provides the ability to forecast how long finished products can be stored for before reaching expiry.

Transportation Management

Transporting foods using sanitary best practices is essential to ensuring the safety of the food you produce. With Aptean's food software solutions, information around required shipping conditions – such as type of vehicle, temperature, packaging, etc. – is stored in a centralized database. This allows for the automated generation of a series of checks and tests during the loading and unloading processes to ensure safety and compliance.
