Today, Silver Spring Foods is in the $1,800 – $2,500 range for variance in our inventory.” – Noah Wallace, CIO of Silver Spring Foods

Frequently Asked Questions
Can the ERP system provide strict lot control of our raw materials and finished goods?
With the Deacom ERP solution, all systems work as a cohesive unit to create strong process control. An example of this occurs when picking lots for a production batch. Since the warehouse scanners are tied directly into the ERP system, they will prevent an individual from picking lots that have not passed their quality control checks or are perhaps on QC hold.
How can the ERP software help us become more efficient at planning for our production needs?
By using a material requirements planning (MRP) system, you can easily replace manual scheduling activities because it can automatically calculate demand based on sales orders, scheduled production jobs, and other indirect requirements. Deacom’s built-in MRP system provides the ability for food manufacturers to plan and schedule production at multiple locations, track different lead times by material, and gain visibility into demand and inventory availability directly from the ERP software.
How does ERP software help us react to costing changes?
The ERP software provides food manufacturers with the ability to use standard, last, or average costing during the formulation process. It also allows for mass updating of various costs, the ability to perform cost roll-ups as needed for multi-level bill of materials, and the capability to establish routings to track different product steps and the associated costs.
Can the ERP system be used to manage multiple facilities?
The ability to support a multi-facility environment is a true stress-test for any ERP system. Whether it’s allowing users to work in different facilities, checking inventory availability across multiple buildings, or generating bill of ladings for inter-company transfers, Deacom ERP software gives you the tools necessary to accomplish all of these tasks without having to juggle multiple systems or perform manual transactions.
How does choosing the right food ERP software software reduce inventory discrepancies?
By using an ERP system dedicated to food manufacturers you can effectively create a “learning machine”, where the speed and accuracy of feedback determines your long-term success. Deacom’s warehouse management system can perform a cycle count during every single transaction, so food manufacturers can see in real-time exactly what is on hand. By automating the control of inventory, Deacom ERP is able to eliminate the guesswork associated with manual processes giving key decision makers the piece-of-mind to make strong business decisions.
What systems are in place to help us manage a recall?
The ability to manage a recall effectively is only as good as your ability to perform traceability backwards and forwards through the supply chain. To support this need and conform to the FDA’s identification and traceability regulations for food manufacturers, Deacom ERP software for food and beverage manufacturers utilizes lot tracking, asset tracking, and serialization to allow users to identify and trace material at each stage of the product lifecycle.
