An enterprise resource planning system, or ERP, is a business management system that enables companies to centralize their information and optimize their processes. An ERP system is especially important for food distribution because of the amount of information involved. Ideally, a food distribution company should use an ERP capable of providing relevant information to the entire company.
An ERP must be able to track your goods and help you optimize your shipments, reduce your shipping times and costs, and keep track of your inventory. Tracking inventory is especially important when it comes to perishable goods. It’s crucial that an ERP allows you to track the expiration dates of your products to ensure they don’t spoil.
Bluebee ERP is equipped with a distribution module. The inventory module gives you complete control of your warehouse with mobile barcode scanners that allow you to track availability and manage expiration dates. The distribution module is also equipped with a supply system, which allows you to manage delivery times.
An Electronic Data Interchange (“EDI”) system is essential for any business that distributes large quantities of food. An EDI system digitizes documents such as purchase orders and invoices, making it easier to communicate with customers and suppliers. Bluebee ERP is equipped with an EDI that can automate your processes.
Bluebee ERP is designed for manufacturing and distribution companies. Throughout our history, we have helped many companies involved in food distribution, such as Bonduelle, Hector Larivée and Aliments Breton, to reduce costs, streamline processes and speed up delivery times.
