Candy ERP designed for growing candy and confectionary multi-channel retailers using QuickBooks and seeking advanced inventory & business management.
For small and mid-sized candy and confectionary retailers seeking:
- Powerful batch processing
- Dynamic traceability
- Real-time omni channel operations
The candy industry is combatting rising prices for imported, precious ingredients like cocoa, almonds, and vanilla; trying to constantly meet consumers changing tastes; and navigating a highly crowded and competitive market.
Candy ERP is the superior way for centralizing and streamlining batch processing, traceability, and omni channel management and fulfillment operations.
Candy ERP with powerful batch processing capabilities, dynamic traceability, and first-class omni channel fulfillment
Regardless of the candy or confection being produced, access to powerful, flexible batch processing with variable yield/weight and waste management can create a dramatic, positive shift in productivity, efficiency, and inventory accuracy.
With Acctivate’s batch processing, users can adjust components with ease and as needed based on seasonal requirements, availability, or requirements due to substitutions. Upon completion, any variations that occurred from an unexpected yield amount, spillage or waste will be accounted for in Acctivate. Lot numbers for every ingredient in a batch can be tracked, enabling more precise lot tracking.
With Batch Processing:
- Adjust components based on seasonal requirements, availability, and substitutions
- Account for spillage, waste, and any other variations
- Compensate for variable yield and alter quantity produced if needed
- Handle variations in input recipe to allow for substitute items and changes in component quantities
- Handle and track multiple lot numbers of the same ingredients
- Track lot numbers of every ingredient included in a batch
- Enjoy accurate costing by batch
Acctivate Candy ERP with dynamic traceability
The importance of powerful lot traceability in candy manufacturing and distribution, as for all of the food and beverage industry, cannot be overstated. Keeping detailed step-by-step accounts of every ingredient within and beyond the warehouse, while also meeting FDA and other federal regulations, is nearly impossible without precise lot and serial traceability.
Acctivate’s traceability makes tracking raw and finished ingredients end-to-end of a supply chain straightforward and easy. Tracking and tracing in Acctivate allows a user to pull any and all required data necessary for an audit, a customer call, or a recall within the matter of minutes.
- Be recall ready and better able to comply with industry regulations
- Track an unlimited number of raw and finished goods by lot or serial numbers end-to-end of the supply chain, including lot numbers for ingredients used in production
- Manage and track quality control issues, expiry dates, lot, inspection, and quarantine information
Candy ERP for QuickBooks
Acctivate’s bi-directional integration with QuickBooks allows candy and confectionary retailers to gain advanced management capabilities while maintaining financials within QuickBooks.
