ERP Software for Food Manufacturing
Food and drug manufacturers and distributors face some of the most significant challenges when it comes to product quality and industry regulations. There is a lot at risk if anything should go wrong and that is why it’s very important that manufacturers in the food and drug industry have an ERP system that facilitates the tracking of documentation and processes related to quality management and compliance. In addition traceability is a crucial aspect of the process that an ERP system must facilitate. Being able to trace ingredients from source to final product is an important aspect of the quality management and compliance process.

Macola ERP software's inventory-centric structure means that each item or ingredient used to produce a final product as well as each final product is captured in detail so that all aspects of the production process are clearly tracked. In addition, the serial lot functionality provides the ability to drill down into serialized and lotted items or batches to help identify quality problems before they occur.
Since food products can vary in weight and size, catch weight functionality is also required within an ERP system. This allows for two units of measure - an inventory unit and a catch weight unit. The inventory unit is the unit of measure in which the product is weighed and invoiced at the inventory unit and the catch weight unit is used for inventory transactions (sold, received, transferred, picked, shipped).
When it comes to compliance such as FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and HAACP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point), Macola software provides an integrated solution that manages documentation and processes, testing results for proper record keeping, captures customer feedback, and centrally stores information for easy access and reporting.
