Hear it from Acctivate users
Brand Passport – Food/Bev Lot Concept
With Acctivate I can see the lot codes immediately. I have visibility of the lot codes when I enter the orders and I assign it all. I am more in tune with the lot codes and the dating of the product that is available. Acctivate has really made that an easier process in general.
Jason Stuart, Logistics Manager, The Brand Passport
Heron Point – Food/Bev Lot Concept
Specifically for a food company, you need to be able to have access to what happened to specific lots at all times and Acctivate gives us very good information quickly. Every can has a code so we know where every can came from if a customer just gives us the code.
Ruth Entwistle, Customs Broker, Heron Point Seafood
Lone Grazer – Food/Bev Lot Concept
We know that all the lot traceability is in Acctivate. We’ve done the work of putting lot numbers on all of the orders and so forth. It’s easy enough to figure out if there is a recall.
Carrie Nicklow, President of Food Building LLC (parent company), Lone Grazer Creamery
Harvest Valley Bakery – Food/Bev Lot Concept
I can choose a lot number from a list, see the customized report attached to it, and then look at the lot number in multiple ways. We can see it from an assembly, finished product, or sales order point-of-view with the purchase order number attached, the product, and date codes all on one sheet.
Miranda DeMaso, Office Manager, Harvest Valley Bakery
Summertime Potato – Food/Bev Lot Concept
When we have hundreds of thousands of bags, Acctivate applies the right cost. If we have the same bag, but two lots or two different POs at a different price, Acctivate gives us the ability to make sure we have the correct costing for the bag per order.
Ron Petersen, Owner, Summertime Potato Company
Record Unlimited Ingredients, Multiple Ingredient Lots & Recipe/Yield Variations to Accurately Account for Production
Multi-level bill of materials (BOM) allow for unlimited ingredients to be specified for the production of batch/bulk products along with multiple lots of the same ingredients.
With recipes varying from batch to batch, Acctivate handles ingredient adjustments that arise due to situational circumstances, i.e., seasonal requirements, availability and substitutions; as well as yield changes to account for said recipe variations, spillage, and waste.
With the critical nature of complying to regulatory requirements within the food & beverage industry, ingredients and end-products can contain source, expiration date, lot, inspection and quarantine info for on-demand managing, viewing and reporting.
Capture True Cost of Goods Sold at the Lot Number Level
Acctivate offers an actual cost method to tie multiple costs to a group of products by lot number by figuring the weighted average of all purchases for the specific lot.
Any additional costs, beyond the purchase price of a product such as duties, taxes, VAT, government fees, customs, freight, insurance and other charges are figured into the per unit cost with easy allocation using Acctivate Landed Cost feature.
Optimize Warehouse Operations With the Ability to Generate & Scan Lot Number Encoded Barcodes
When product arrives at your warehouse, items are picked off warehouse shelves, inventory counts for a multitude of products are performed, product needs to be transferred from one warehouse to another—Acctivate Mobile Warehouse Management functioning on a mobile barcode device injects precision & speed into these operations.
With a single scan of the lot numbered barcode that can contain expiration date, catch weights and more, the processes are initiated and completed on the mobile device, which can be critical for compliance with regulatory requirements.
