Softengine has developed a robust and highly configurable SAP software extension that is designed expressly for food and beverage based businesses – SAP Business One – Food One. Building upon SAP Business One’s industry-leading ERP solution for small-midsize and fast-growing companies, the Food One extension delivers unbeatable inventory control, warehouse management, lot traceability, recall functionality and so much more.
“From the initial purchase order to production to invoicing and shipping, SAP Business One – Food One pulls everything together. Plus, our financial information is always up to date and accessible in real time, so we never have to wait for nightly or weekly postings.”
– Roseangela Borruso, Vice President, Castle Importing, Inc.
SAP Business One – Food One delivers complete traceability of every step and ingredient in a food business’s complex cycle, starting with the purchase of raw materials all the way through to shipping and invoicing finished products. Softengine developed a unique Multi-Level Trace feature, which automatically traces every step and ingredient of the entire cycle backward from the shipping documents received by the customer to the initial purchase order sent to the vendor. Armed with this solution, food-based businesses are able to conduct quick and precise recall practice runs and actual recalls, and maintain total compliance with all FDA requirements. Food One Softengine enables its customers to meet rigorous requirements through data validation, including compliance with GS1 Bar Codes standards.
SAP Business One – Food One offers multiple commission and rebate types. For example, a salesperson or broker might get paid a commission for each item sold based on a percentage of the sale price or a fixed dollar amount by the case/pound. Similar options apply to rebates, where customers might earn a rebate on a per-pound or per-case basis and apply that to a future purchase or they might get their rebate in the form of a discount at the time of purchase. The parameters for commissions and rebates may be changed at any time.
Softengine augmented the core functionality in SAP Business One to create Sales Order Guides and Purchase Order Guides – catalogs of items designed to streamline the ordering process between customers and vendors. When you access the Order Guides feature, you can view the purchase history of any customer or your purchase history from any vendor, including the last price paid and quantity ordered for a particular item. A great time-saving benefit of the Order Guides is that you can use information from previous orders, just by selecting the previously ordered items and clicking one button.
SAP Business One – Food One offers top-flight raw materials management, including issuing and tracking support, potency control, catch-weight capabilities and conversion of material from one unit of measure to another.
SAP Business One – Food One ERP systems identify, store, label and provide automated procedures for handling high-risk or incompatible products.
Establish default delivery routes for each day of the week and automatically assign the delivery route to applicable sales orders. Optionally interfaces to Roadnet.
