Bakery ERP Software designed for growing wholesale bakeries using QuickBooks, seeking advanced inventory, warehouse, and business management.
According the American Bakers Association, the U.S. baking industry’s economic impact totals around $423 billion with retail bakeries generating $3 billion in revenue and commercial bakeries selling $31 billion in products. While the industry continues to grow steadily, profits are not exceptionally high due to rising costs of wheat and sugar.
A perfect way for small and mid-sized multi-channel wholesale bakeries to continue to grow and see higher profits is to implement bakery ERP software. With proper inventory management, a wholesale bakery can reduce unnecessary labor and time-consuming tasks, optimize and centralize operations to improve efficiency and workflows, and in the end, help to widen profit margins and protect bottom lines.
