What Can MRP do for Food & Beverage Manufacturers?

If you manufacture food and beverage items, Advanced Business Cloud Essentials can handle your manufacturing process and manage your full business in a single system. Effective use of MRP will not only save you hours of time each week, but it will help you become more profitable and delight your customers with outstanding customer service.

Track & Trace Every Product & Order

In the unfortunate event of a product recall you may need to find any goods or customers which could be affected by the same issue. Advanced Business Cloud Essentials keeps a complete history of every product, allowing you to see its production history, which supplier components were bought from as well as all related sales orders, purchase orders and works orders related to them. This means you can take appropriate action quickly if a problem occurs.

Track Expiry Dates & Serial Numbers

Within Advanced Business Cloud Essentials you are able to use tools to manage your stock more efficiently and effectively than ever before. The system also provides your with the ability to store serial numbers and expiry dates against individual products. This information can be used for both traceability, if it is required, and for production to ensure that you use goods with relevant expiry dates in your scheduling at the right times.

Intelligent Scheduling With Saves Hours of Time

Scheduling production can be a real challenge for manufactures, especially if last minute orders or cancellations come in with tight deadlines. As a result, many manufacturers still rely on spreadsheets or a big whiteboard, but with Advanced Business Cloud Essentials scheduling is made easy. With full knowledge your processes and resources the system automatically schedules work in line with due dates and alerts you to any issues with stock or lead times.

Maximise Your Sales Potential

Customer records in Advanced Business Cloud Essentials provide your sales team with all of the information they need to ensure they maximise your business’ sales potential. As well as having full access to past orders, existing works orders and all relevant documents relating to their relationship with you, your sales team can easily set up repeat orders to save time, maximise profits and assist with your overall sales forecasting.

Accurately Forecast Sales & Stock Requirements

Because the sales forecasting and stock management tools in Advanced Business Cloud Essentials link together your sales team will be able to see what stock is available and any associated lead times when quoting their customers, all of which can be tracked in the sales pipeline forecast. This links directly with the production scheduling so you can understand how much stock is committed to orders and when you need to buy more to meet demand.

Buy & Sell In Any Type of Quantity

If you products in, repack them and sell them in different quantities, the Units of Measure functionality in Advanced Business Cloud Essentials make this process simple and easy. Items can be purchased in bulk, for example in pallets, and then sold out as multi-packs or as single items. This information is fed back into the system to inform you when new stock (in this case, pallets) need to be reordered due to minimum quantities or to meet existing demand.

Take The Hassle out of eCommerce

If you’re selling products online then you’ll know all too well about the amount of time required to maintain multiple versions of your products, pricing and stock records across your systems and online platforms. Advanced Business Cloud Essentials solves this problem by linking stock records (including titles, descriptions, images, pricing and stock) with your online platforms (eCommerce, eBay & Amazon) and even sends sales orders directly into the system too!

Understand Your Product Profitability

Many manufacturers struggle to understand the profitability of products and projects until they are completed, and even then the information can be unreliable. Advanced Business Cloud Essentials allows you to analyse all costs and sales associated to each product, project or department to understand the true profitability of each area of your business in real time or by your chosen date ranges.

Manufacturing For A New Generation. Why Change Is Long Overdue…

For many years the thought of using MRP or ERP software for a small or medium sized manufacturer was not an option – they were overly complicated and too expensive. However, with the rise of cloud based software has come a new breed of MRP system, perfect for small and medium manufacturers who face many of the same challenges that larger organisation do.

The passion for producing and selling products, which initially drove manufacturers to start their business, can often by dampened by operational issues. These issues often include problems with delivery times, cash flow, staff and being unable to satisfy customer demand.

MRP helps tackle these challenges by moving company data into a single system. Typically data is held on paper, in spreadsheets, on whiteboards or, quite often, simply in someone’s (usually the owner’s) head. By streamlining processes and recorded information in one place, customer orders can flow from sales, to invoicing and into production with ease.

Customers can be kept up to date with progress of orders and stock can be purchased in the right quantities and at the right time to fulfil demand accurately.

As this information flows into your finance system, accurate and real-time reports can be created to show your current financial position, your financial forecast and profitability of each area of your business – by product, project, department or as a whole.

There has never been a better time for manufacturers to embrace change and embrace MRP.
