In working with food and beverage manufacturers, though this happens in other businesses as well, one of the greatest impediments to efficient operations is that scattering of business critical data throughout the operation.
Does any of the following sound familiar? Your recipes are stored on a variety of Excel spreadsheets. Meanwhile, Quality Control Tests are housed in Access. Your production scheduling is mapped out on a whiteboard. And there is a software application on the PC in the corner that has all of your nutritional labeling information.
Any time there is a rush for information, you’re slowed down by the painful process of pulling all the needed data from multiple locations. And, given that much of the data is entered manually, you can only hope that it’s mostly accurate. If the fire drill of collecting, consolidating, and reporting has repeatedly sent you home late, with a headache and worse, worried about whether you’ve had the best information with which to make a decision – it might be time to look at a solution that is designed for food and beverage manufacturers.
