The growing world is demanding more and more food. Increasing world-wide demand, plus a shift to higher calories per individual (a greater proportion of these calories coming from animal products like beef, chicken and pork) translates into rising product demand for the food processing equipment industry.
Shifting customer preferences such as organics, and health consciousness products, are driving certain types of equipment to extend their versatility. And with growing demand, comes new competition, particularly from foreign regions of the world.
WorkWise ERP handles complex work operations including rising materials costs, inefficient operations and water and energy reduction among other features.
Handle the ever-growing competition in the food and beverage industry with ERP software that includes unique features to compete with growing food & beverage industry.
In order to deliver excellent service, help customers, perform jobs better, WorkWise ERP provides evolving technology in order to help maintain business operations.
Food and beverage equipment manufacturers face a challenge of helping their customers perform their jobs better, while at the same time responding to rapidly evolving technology, growing competition, and complexity in their operations.
Their customers are demanding increased value with decreased costs, while expecting solutions that include full services and support. Simple quality metrics of the past have now been replaced with total life-cycle performance, including all the activities that occur from the birth of the equipment till its final replacement. Low maintenance is now a mandate rather than a “nice to have” feature. Reliability and quality play a dynamic part in maintaining product pricing, both in new and resale (which makes purchase of new equipment more feasible). Material costs also continue to fluctuate, which make pricing of the products difficult. At the same time, manufacturers must offer solutions to help cope with rising transport costs, increased government regulations, food safety concerns and changing consumer tastes.
No doubt about it, food and beverage equipment manufacturers have a full plate. Fortunately, WorkWise ERP software has unique features that address these problems, helping to bring these challenges under control.

After Market Sales and Support
All aspects of our company are now running through our ERP software. Having everyone work out of the same system and not have multiple programs that you have to jump back and forth through, has allowed us to get more done in less time.
One of the main benefits we’ve experienced using WorkWise ERP is being able to get meaningful information we can use, versus getting data that requires more work to get the answers you’re looking for. The data is integrated and streamlined for efficient use which keeps our fixed costs lower and allows us to invest our capital into building better products.
It doesn’t take all day to do our schedule anymore. Also, the Performance Management WorkBench lets us see what information we want to see, and what time we want to see it, in a nice visual way. Item Planning is also great. It’s so easy to look up specific information related to whatever we need to see.

What’s really nice is having everything in one package. My financials are in the same package as manufacturing and customer orders. Everything integrates seamlessly. Bringing in inventory management has been a huge benefit for us. Being able to jump between workbenches and different points of data has been really nice.

WorkWise spent a lot of time with us in order to understand our manufacturing process. We’re fairly unique, and there’s not that many companies in the world that do what we do. WorkWise really made us feel like they understood what we were doing and where we were going.
