Fully Configurable Solution Tackles Unique Challenges of the Food & Beverage Industry
If you own a food and beverage based business you’re well aware of the multitude of daily challenges. Food safety, regulatory compliance, product recalls and the list goes on… At Softengine we have developed a robust and highly configurable SAP software extension, SAP Business One – Food One, that delivers unbeatable inventory control, warehouse management, lot traceability, recall functionality and so much more. It provides the real time tools and overview you need to operate your food and beverage business efficiently and successfully.
What Happens When the FDA Requires a Recall?
No food and beverage business wants to face a recall of their products. It costs time, money, damage to the brand and there are potential liability issues if consumers have been sickened by the product. But as a responsible food and beverage business operator you need to have a contingency plan in place if this ever happens.
Softengine’s SAP Business One - Food One includes a unique Multi-Level Trace function that traces every step of the food processing cycle backwards, from the shipping documents received by the business owner, to the initial purchase order sent to the vendor. The source of every ingredient can be identified and the processing treatments they have undergone, maintaining full compliance with FDA requirements. SAP Business One - Food One’s tools enable food and beverage businesses to conduct swift and accurate recalls should the event ever be necessary.
Flexible Commission and Rebate Management
Your field sales staff are pounding the streets and knocking on doors on a mission to sell your products. They need to get compensated for their hard work and the standard policy is to pay them a commission. SAP Business One - Food One’s flexible commission management enables you to pay your salesperson either on a percentage of the sale price or a fixed dollar amount by the case/pound.
Similar options apply to customer rebates that can be taken either at time of sale as a discount off the price or apply it as a credit against a future purchase.
