Food recalls are every food and beverage Industry Company’s worst nightmare. But the way they’re handled can make the difference between a company that survives and goes on to thrive – and a company that flounders.
An ERP linked to a warehouse management system can help a business keep tabs on every single product in its distribution supply chain. By tracking lots, dates, and quantities for each product, as well as each one’s movement, a company would quickly be able to determine where the potentially problematic products are, and who to contact to recall them.
Managing one restaurant is hard enough, but when you’re in charge of an entire chain, it is next to impossible – without clear sales data to inform your decisions. By integrating an ERP with the POS systems in each location, restaurant chains can create accurate daily sales reports – and best of all, they’re automated!
With the right numbers giving management the full picture at every restaurant, every day, things like monitoring cash, keeping track of cost vs. sales performance, and predicting future sales become easy. The profitability of each location can be accurately assessed, and successful practices of top restaurants can be applied at all other locations to increase their profitability, as well.
When you’re dealing with perishable foods, every second counts. Distribution must be quick, efficient, and accurate in order to minimize costs and maximize product quality. It’s not enough to track products as they move through the distribution supply chain – you need to be able to identify ways to continuously improve.
With an ERP’s inventory management and CRM capabilities, coupled with route planning software, a food and beverage industry company can easily take orders, find the most efficient ways of transporting products, and track every step of the process, so that inefficiencies can be eliminated and customer satisfaction – and profits – can be boosted.
ERPs can do a lot more than just organize data for your company. From providing practical, profitable restaurant management ideas to boosting efficiency to contributing to a quick recovery in case of a recall, an ERP can quite literally mean the difference between success
