Vertical Solution for My Industry
The driving motivation for implementing any information technology solution must be a return on investment (ROI), and it is through solutions designed for specific industries that the best returns are achieved.
FoodChain For Microsoft Dynamics NAV has been developed to save organisations in the food distribution and foodservice industries on administrative costs. The fact that this functionality exists means that you, the end user, do not have to risk software customisations and thus wear all of the development costs on your own. You also avoid messy workaround procedures that are often the reality of purchasing most off-the-shelf ERP solutions.
FoodChain For Microsoft Dynamics NAV – What Does It Do?
FoodChain tackles the time consuming administrative tasks that confront businesses in the Food Supply Chain. It takes out the manual, labour intensive processes and systemises them so that users get results at a click of a button rather than through hours of entering data, sorting information and compiling reports.
Fully Integrated ERP System
FoodChain is fully integrated with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This means that customers get access to one of the most powerful accounting, stock and manufacturing system used by over a million people worldwide. The Foodchain enhancements are offered in modules that provide the following features:
The module allows companies to setup rules for their suppliers and/or customers identifying rates of rebate based on purchases or sales volumes. This can be related to all purchases or alternately can support multiple specific contract arrangements (e.g. your contract for major government contracts and retail outlets).
This module is an extension of the standard Dynamics NAV sales order module and allows organisations to set standard order templates (regular products and quantities) for customers which can be edited before processing into order fulfilment.
Delivery Route Management
This module allows for organisations that support their own fleet of trucks to manage outgoing freight and automatically output delivery manifests according to run sequences. Picking and packing instructions can be broken down into dry, chilled and frozen, and output in reverse sequence order to ensure late deliveries are packed first.
Contract and Advanced Price Management
This module simplifies the management of pricing to allow for bulk updates based upon a variety of factors including supplier price changes, date based increases or other rules.This can save the precious time of some of your most senior staff.
Warehouse Bar Coding
Using the prompt WMS Bar Coding modules, companies can do away with paper based picking, receipting and stock take management. Not only do you benefit from significant savings on data entry, you also help to eliminate errors and the wrong goods being delivered to customers. Prompt therefore also aids in cutting down on flow on affects including additional freight costs, more credit notes, and decreasing customer satisfaction.
Mobile Sales and POS
The prompt Mobile Sales and POS modules allow delivery drivers or sales representatives to access pricing, order, inventory and customer data while on the road. They can synchronise their database regularly to ensure that the latest information is available on their Windows Pocket PC. The units fully support barcode scanning.Mobile staff can also accept payments through the devices, which means the Accounts Receivable department know how much in cheques and cash they can expect each driver to return the following day.In addition, the AR department don’t need to rekey the data because all information is automatically synchronised with the Dynamics NAV database.
Wine Equalisation Tax (WET)
For those companies that also deal with WET, the FoodChain suite offers an enhancement to add WET support to the Dynamics NAV accounting, ordering and tax management. This is a great feature that many standard off-the-shelf applications cannot support.
