Perishable Goods Distribution

Distribution of Perishable goods made easy.

import, manufacture and distribution has some unique challenges.  Different customers have different expiry date requirements, certifications need to be tracked on suppliers, your recall process and stock take process must be auditable, to name a few.

SaaSplications is an extremely flexible system – our perishable goods distribution ERP customers have unique challenges and very different business models.  We ask “how would you like it to work” and configure it to suite that to ensure your competitive advantage is enhanced.

An example customer using the system has warehouses in every state, thousands of customers in every state, sales reps in every state who walk into retail outlets and place an order in the system before they leave the store, high volume low margin products, short dated (eg: yoghurts) and long dated products, range expanding promotions (buy min of 2 cases of any 3 products from these 7 to get a discount), supplier funded promotions (that require claim evidence to be provided by the system), products that only range in some geographies or to some customer groups, batch tracking, barcoding, their own vehicles to route and schedule, EDI customers that take semi trailer loads, deliveries to DC’s for groups of customers, cold chain tracking, recall management and much much more.

If you would like a single system to run your business including your financials, webstore, customer portals, complex forecasting based on sales, purchasing including landed costs, complex promotions, inventory management, advanced warehousing, Asset management including depreciation etc etc.  Please contact us for a discussion.
