Industries > Manufacturing: General

The food and beverage industry is remarkably diverse. Thousands of different products and many types of processes (including fresh, frozen, chilled, and long shelf-life goods) serve customers ranging from mega-retailers to small chains, independent stores, catering services, restaurants, and exporters.

Juggling all of these products, processes, and customers creates serious issues. You have to respond to the demands of retailers and customers, manage supply chain processes, and make sure delivery times and schedules are coordinated.

Microsoft Dynamics solutions offer a set of strong applications that deliver a powerful suite of technologies for food and beverage manufacturers. These integrated applications can be deployed quickly and inexpensively without complicated customizations and drawn-out implementation projects.

Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics solutions for food and beverage manufacturers

Microsoft Dynamics solutions give you a flexible IT system, enabling you to meet and exceed your business requirements. Whether you build an RFID solution, customer relationship management (CRM) system, Demand Driven Supply Network (DDSN) solution, or a financial management solution, Microsoft Dynamics solutions can help your company:

  • Meet retailer demands. Work with retailers to help solve their problems while you improve your operations, lower your costs, and increase your ability to service other customers. You can increase visibility into your manufacturing operations, improve customer service, and provide managers and sales personnel with fast access to the right information when they need it.

  • Respond to consumer trends. Respond quickly to-or better yet, anticipate-consumer trends by being able to review current sales and market data, and then make accurate, real-time decisions. Efficiently integrate manufacturing, financials, and procurement to shorten product development and manufacturing times, and speed time-to-market. You can even speed the process with easy-to-use, cross-company collaboration tools.

  • Improve supply chain operations. Quickly respond to changing demands by creating a transparent supply chain that helps you and your customers access relevant information-whether it's about product availability, prices, expiration dates, or promotions. Information gathered throughout the supply chain can help you realize your business goals, generate more profits, and determine where new business possibilities can be found.

  • Monitor food safety. Implement the best practices required to support and automate key safety requirements such as HACCP and legislative compliance acts. You can enable the automatic tracking and tracing of raw materials and products at all stages of production, processing, and distribution. By doing so, you can also facilitate an automated recall process that can be completed in hours instead of days or weeks.
