Dropped in Food Industry


In the face of the current global pandemic, every business has been forced to re-evaluate and develop new ways for customers/staff to access their product/system.

If your old business solution has been generating headaches for years, now is the time to act! Streamlining your processes, becoming more agile and creating new revenue streams will prove key to securing your future.

Access your business system from anywhere at any time

Being thrown into the deep-end, courtesy of a government ordered lock-down is likely to have sent all your staff back home. So, how have you been making informed decisions if you’re still reliant on multiple spreadsheets or filing cabinets that contain your vital business data?

Dynamics Food is our end-to-end solution powered by Dynamics 街霸5 Business Central, that is designed to address the challenges that Food & Beverage manufacturers, processors and distributors face every day. The solution will help you to ditch the disparate systems and manage your sales, finance, manufacturing, supply chain and more from anywhere at any time.

We work with companies across the Food industry, including Bernard Matthews, Copernus, David Berryman, Faccenda Foods, Forza Foods, Gressingham Foods, Kent Foods, Laila's Fine Foods, Nantwich Cheese Company, Neal's Yard Dairy, Pipers Crisps, Rondanini and Zeina Foods to name a few.

Your customers still want to buy your product… now!

With worry and uncertainty in the air, the public are flocking to digital channels to get their hands on what they want. Online orders are up 52% compared to this time last year, according to Sana Commerce.

A Food customer of ours only operated as a B2B prior to the outbreak, with our support, we created a new B2C landing page for their website, so they could set-up collection orders for their retail customers and get their new revenue stream off the ground.

With full integration with Sana Commerce, Dynamics Food makes it easier for your customers to do business with you. They can place orders, check invoices and statements, even pay bills at a time to suit them. Our solution will help you to get customer orders straight into your business system without you needing to lift a finger.

Has Christmas Part II tested your systems to the limit?

From one extreme to another, there will be Food company’s out there that feel like they’re in the middle of a Christmas Part II . With great expectations of quality from your customer, the pressure is left on you to deliver and capitalise.

With volume through the roof, it’s clear that your finance department will have to manage a huge strain in your cash flow. If you add a global pandemic in the mix, can you really afford to continually rely on Excel spreadsheets that are prone to duplication or triplication? You need the confidence that you are looking at one version of the truth moving forwards.

One of our dedicated apps for Dynamics Food, Clever Credit will help to remove some manual tasks from your credit control team. The app will help you to automatically place sales orders on hold if you have a customer with overdue balances, or even if a certain sales order will send them over the agreed credit limit.
