A family-run food producer in Yorkshire. We developed enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to run the entire sales, purchasing, manufacturing and logistics operation of this small factory and its 25 staff. Production is scheduled automatically to make the best use of machine time, make use of ingredients with a short shelf-life and minimise waste.
A high-end stock control system ensures economical purchase and constant availability of ingredients and packaging – all of which are fully traceable by their batch numbers through the whole process. Meanwhile, touchscreens on the factory floor instruct staff in the exact recipes and methods for making over 200 products, and gather all-important quality control data. http://www.villagegreenpreserves.com/
