Fresh ERP - What is it?
Fresh ERP – What is it, and why wont traditional ERP solutions work in the Fresh Produce Industry?
You see, it decays… fast… fresh produce can ‘go over’ in a matter of hours.
So, having a planning system that works on week numbers is ‘neither use nor ornament’, and that applies to two thirds of the ERP market.
You need a system that captures data in ‘real time’ as your fresh produce business lives and operates in ‘real time’.
And that is just an appetiser… other factors include:
- Highly variable raw materials
- Third party products
- Instability of supply
- Tight margins.
