Working With Grains
Can Be Complicated,
But Aptean’s ERP for Bakeries Can Help.
We Understand The Complexities of Working With Grains As A Bakery
Grains are notoriously susceptible to weather changes, and recent drastic weather events worldwide continue to constrain supply. This makes it even more important that your ERP system can effectively plan your operations—otherwise, you’re risking valuable product that may become waste.
Costs to enter and remain in the grain market can also present a challenge to any producer. From labour costs to irrigation and soil conditioning, there are tons of line items that need to be accounted for and captured by your ERP system.
And of course, consumers want to know if certain allergens—like wheat or gluten—are present in your products. Without a reliable way to assign allergens to raw materials and inform production personnel, you risk improper labeling and cross-contamination.
Aptean’s solutions are built for the industries they serve, by people that have worked in those industries. That’s why our ERP for bakeries provides vital bakery-specific functionality with features made specially for working with grains, breads and desserts.
