Food and consumer products relationship with ERP

Enterprises are set up for a core function of profitability. However, other business goals such as fulfilling customer?s needs and satisfaction hence ensuring that they are maximum satisfaction are also prime objectives. To ensure that the objectives stated above are achieved, different business functions such as manufacturing, purchasing, sales and marketing, inventory management, finance, shipping among other business activities have to be smoothly operated.

To facilitate this integration, ERPs, (Enterprise Resource Planning) software are been developed to suit the need of different organisations including food and consumer products manufacturers and vendors. ERP software provides an integrated view of core business? processes linked with a real-time database that facilitates the flow of information across all business functions.

Some food products that are perishable and do not have any preservatives in them need to be produced in manageable quantities so as to minimise losses that may occur from overproduction of food products that may go unpurchased thereby aiding in the business manufacturing function.
