Food and Beverage ERP Software Solution

The food and beverage industry is perpetually developing in terms of consumer choice, with increasing demand for high quality fresh, chilled and frozen products and the need to continuously innovate. Major retailers, together with food service, have an enormous influence on the food and beverage market. Increasing regulations on traceability, clean labeling, the need to reduce salt and fats as well as production costs and lead times, require the food industry to be more flexible today than it ever has been.

EAM for Food and Beverage

Process manufacturing including food and beverage is an asset-intensive business. That means at the very least, a basic computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is necessary to capture and manage costs of operating and maintaining your equipment. Greater utility is available through full enterprise asset management (EAM), however. EAM software from IFS will allow you to maximize the return on investment in capital assets like process manufacturing equipment and plants. The same level of traceability and documentation you’ll find in our ERP solutions is present in EAM, and that means that you can more easily comply with audits from FDA, OSHA or other regulators.  Manage maintenance projects, lifecycle extensions or refits with embedded enterprise project management functionality.

You can also spot and mitigate risks resulting from equipment condition, and coordinate maintenance and refit work to coincide with lulls in the production schedule.
