Ingredient Management Software
Ingredients, spices, and flavorings make the food and beverage industry’s existence and growth more possible. Without specific spices or unique, custom flavorings or specialty ingredients available, many of the most popular brands on the grocery store shelves could not exist today.

Acctivate Ingredient Management Software with dynamic bill of materials + kitting & assembly
A bill of materials with kitting and assembly capabilities is important for ingredient, flavoring, and spice manufacturers. A bill of materials is used to specify components used to “build” or process a product. Acctivate’s bill of materials tracks the components used to make a finished product and provides additional information such as inventory levels per component. Ingredient management software with advanced multi-level bill of materials can be used for products designated as an assembly (made to stock), a kit (made to order), or a batch processed finished good. At the time of shipment, costing for a bill of materials is derived from components used.
With Bill of Materials + Kitting & Assembly:
- The bill of materials may be changed at any time, while preserving sales history for previously assembled, kitted, or finished products
- Enjoy unlimited bill of materials components
- The completed product, the components, or both may be serialized or lot numbered
- Partial assemblies can be posted while the remainder is kept “in progress” until ready to post
- Custom kitting allows for one-off changes to the quantity of kit components or to add/remove components from kit on sales order
