Revolutionizing Recipe and Formula-Based Manufacturing

Aptean Ross ERP is designed to support manufacturers that are recipe- or formula-based to successfully manage the variability and complexities of their products and processes, as well as accurately account for all resources, including raw materials and packaging supplies, equipment and labor, and finished products, including co-products and by-products. This will significantly improve production planning and efficiency, product costing, inventory, and lot management while providing bi-directional traceability and recall capabilities. Ross ERP gives you the information you need, when you need it, without workarounds to provide transparency of information and improve productivity throughout your enterprise. No other enterprise solution does more for the food and beverage, specialty chemicals and pharmaceutical/biotech industries. With Ross ERP you’ll also benefit from flexible deployment options, including SaaS and on-premise.

Improved Operations Management & Reduced Costs

Ross ERP is built for recipe- and formula-based production. It includes robust production management, quality, and costing solutions, as well as applications for shop floor management. Ross users are empowered to improve operations throughout the enterprise and standardize operations across the globe, which means handling complex business processes has never been easier.

Traceability for Compliance & Recall

Because traceability is paramount in industries like food and beverage, specialty chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, Ross ERP has designed this as a core capability. From raw ingredients to finished goods, along with processes, equipment, personnel, and quality tests, users will always have full traceability of their products and processes throughout the supply chain, dramatically increasing the response time performing mock recalls and audits.

Proactively Manage Inventory, Locations & Shelf Life Across the Enterprise

Inventory management is part of the core foundation of Ross ERP, providing the enterprise with real time inventory visibility, as well as projected inventory balances in the future based on supply and demand to effectively manage inventory. Manufacturers will benefit from increased inventory turns and reduce or eliminate expired and short shelf life inventory with tools to manage the present and the future.

Increase Margins & Manage Revenue Leakage

In addition to lowering manufacturing and administrative costs, Ross ERP can improve the bottom line by giving your operations improved product costing and profitability management. Cost simulation with sales price margin forecasting prevents surprises later. Customer and product profitability analytics provides actionable information to increase margins and solve problems. The ability to manage promotions, rebates, discounts, and customer bill backs also prevents revenue leakage in a competitive environment.

Industry-Specific ERP

Ross ERP offers a full-featured solution that comes equipped with ready-made functionality for virtually every requirement for a Food and Beverage, Specialty Chemical, or Pharmaceutical/Biotech company. Using a solution that is designed for your industry eliminates the need for time-consuming customizations and frustrating workarounds that are par for the course with generic ERP solutions that are not focused. Ross ERP easily scales with you as your business grows, where you can avoid a costly and disruptive replacement in the future. In addition, you can expand your capabilities with other Aptean process solutions that are seamlessly integrated as you grow, unlike other market offerings.
