Food and beverage businesses are challenged by a fast-paced industry, urgent customer demands, and thinning profit margins. Juggling sales, service, and business operations with disparate software not only adds to the complexity, but can also cause delays and lead to poor decision making. Stay competitive and grow your profits by deploying stronger technology.
Running a busy food and beverage business can be challenging and managing operations with separate, specialty solutions only adds to the challenge. Although your financial data may be safely tucked away in accounting software and inventory data stored in another inventory management solution, it takes too long to get the data you need, when you need it. Once handed a financial or inventory report, you may need to perform data validation to determine whether it’s accurate. In many cases, as data is shared between departments for different uses, it’s redundantly entered into spreadsheets or a disparate software system, which increases the risk for errors. Using aged, inaccurate data to make business decisions can create big risks.
There is a more efficient way to manage business operations and it starts by replacing disparate systems with an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. A single solution, such as Microsoft Dynamics® GP, is much easier to learn and use than multiple specialty software programs. In addition, you and your people can enter, access, and use your business data without waiting for reports or colleagues to email you updates. The information you need is at your fingertips. Microsoft Dynamics GP offers RoleTailored dashboards which you can customize to highlight the data you need the most while also hiding extraneous data or features you don’t need as often. In addition, built-in business intelligence makes it easier to monitor key metrics in real time. You can follow inventory trends, for example, and identify which products customers are favoring and which may become obsolete. You can use this insight to adjust procurement, manufacturing, and marketing efforts.
Microsoft Dynamics GP also offers features that are designed specifically for the food and beverage industry. Without added customizations, you can streamline order processing, offer flexible pricing, improve logistics, and make reorders and returns easier for customers.
Don’t let inefficient systems stifle business growth. Replace disparate systems with an integrated ERP solution. Contact Empower Business Solutions to learn how you can serve up profits with stronger technology.
