Wayne, PA, United States, 2009/02/18 - Deacom, Inc. today released a white paper discussing how the use of an integrated ERP software system can help food manufacturers increase product safety and traceability.
Deacom, Inc. today released a white paper exploring how the use of an integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software system can help food manufacturers increase product safety and traceability so they can meet regulatory compliance standards, maximize profitability, and react quickly to - or avoid - product recalls.
The white paper, titled "Integrated ERP for Food Manufacturing: A Strategic Weapon for a Competitive Environment," discusses many of the complex challenges food manufacturers face today, such as complying with the Bioterrorism Act, establishing effective lot tracking systems, generating accurate labeling, and managing expiration dates based on item and customer requirements.
Food manufacturers can overcome these challenges and simplify their business processes to maximize productivity and profitability, the paper argues, by implementing food ERP software that integrates all aspects of their business - including recipe management, inventory control and lot tracking, regulatory reporting, production, QA/QC, purchasing, sales, and accounting - in one system.
The paper also explains the critical functionality to look for in a food processing software system. Features such as bar coded lot tracking, material requirements planning, and automated labeling can help food companies reduce costs and increase product quality and safety, it argues.
