MISys Manufacturing for Food and Beverage
As a food manufacturer, the biggest reason to consider MISys Manufacturing is control. Food manufacturers typically struggle with three main areas: inventory control, costing, and traceability. And, unlike a company that makes widgets, the food manufacturing process tends to be a bit more variable. Ingredients are carefully measured out, but yields of finished goods always vary, and therefore costs always vary. And to top it all off, regulatory demands mean that you have to account for every bit of material used and prove that you have complete traceability.
MISys wraps all of these capabilities and more into an easy-to-use package that integrates with your accounting system. With Advanced Production, MISys will know that when you measure out ingredients for production, that those ingredients will be used in full even if you only get half of the finished product you were supposed to. And, as a result, the system will have a much more accurate per unit cost for your finished goods.
Pair that with full material traceability, batch/recipe adjustments on-the-fly, automatically generated purchase orders based on stock status, and more, and MISys can give you the kind of comprehensive control features typically found on much larger systems.
