Contract registration and processing

The benefits are twofold if you can forecast demand accurately. On the one hand, it leads to more sales (by offering insight into the ‘drivers’ behind your sales results) and boosts customer confidence, and on the other it saves costs thanks to production flow optimisation. Key to demand forecasting with Machine Learning is the relationship between up to date data, potentially combined with forecasting (the weather, the economy), in comparison with historical data. This combination of data can facilitate a truly accurate forecast of what is going to be sold. This enables companies to optimise their production planning.
As a food organisation, you have customers and suppliers with whom you have made arrangements concerning rebates. A rebate is typically awarded if a given amount of value or volume is ordered over a specific period. And you will probably want to earmark these rebates in a general ledger. You will also want to record the payout of these rebates in your ERP software. Aptean Food & Beverage ERP ensures that rebates can be paid out correctly to customers and suppliers.
In the fresh sector, it often happens that you procure, produce or supply products both in pieces and in kilograms, whereby kilograms are leading in the settlement of cost price, procurement and sales prices. The Catch weight module makes it possible to exercise control regarding the administrative weight variances and to reach the right price settlement.
As a supplier to retailers, you have to deal with the given that it must be possible to communicate through EDI messages. This communication must take place according to the standard definition of EDI messages of GS1 as pre-determined by the food sector. EDI is an absolute must for companies with many business associates who procure large numbers of products. The Data Integration Framework within Aptean Food & Beverage ERP takes care of all your EDI requirements without a fuss.
