There’s nothing better than getting together with friends and family over a celebratory meal washed down with your choice of a beverage. That hasn’t happened much during the pandemic, and if you’re like me, you’ve missed it.
The good news is that we’re seeing the end of that COVID-19 tunnel.
The end of that tunnel is good news for you and me, but it’s even better news for the cafes, restaurants, food trucks… wherever it is that you eat, drink, and make merry. Because those establishments are beginning to reopen. Finally.
However, it’s not like the flip of a switch. Behind those eateries, there’s a supply chain that brings the produce and ingredients they need to their doors so that they can bring the finished products to your table. And that food supply chain has been hard hit throughout the pandemic.
The best news is that we have the technology to help everyone, at every point in the supply chain, get back up and running: from the growers and brewers; the carriers on land, sea, and air; the warehouses and distribution centers; to the restaurants, cafes, food trucks, and let’s not forget the bars!
Some will never reopen, and that’s sad. But many will.
What technology will they need? They will all need the basics, which means accounting software. But today, accounting software is rarely sold as a standalone application. Accounting software is, rather, the foundation for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software.
ERP for Food & Beverage
Here at Liberty Grove Software, we implement and support an ERP solution that we know works best for customers in the Food & Beverage industry, and that is: DynamicsFoodERP, a leading food and beverage add-on for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central that provides enhanced food and beverage functionality.
DynamicsFoodERP is Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD). It has been built specifically for the food industry to address the industry’s unique needs, such as Quality Control, Container Management, Catch-weight, and Scale Integration.
DynamicsFoodERP was built on the collective experiences of more than the 200 Food & Beverage companies that run the DynamicsFoodERP software today. Like a baker’s dozen, 13 Functional Area Enhancements have been developed to serve the Food & Beverage industry.
But wait! Saying “Food & Beverage” is too broad. Liberty Grove has that issue covered, too. We’ve broken the overall Food & Beverage into six segments (Dairy, Meat, Fish, Fruit & Vegetable, Bread & Bakery, Confectionery) so that we can drill down into each segment’s specific processes and requirements.
