Business Challenges
Low cost-effectiveness ratio and high degree of difficulty in reconciliation
Product marketing expenses are where finance and sales converge in the company, and also where a black hole of expenses easily forms. Food companies hope to form effective loop management in budgeting, execution, supervision and analysis of sales expenses. Relying on manual accounting can easily lead to execution inefficiency and lack of effective supervision.
Wrong orders, missing orders, delayed orders — low efficiency of supply-production-sales collaboration
Wrong orders, missing orders and delayed orders are rather common in business processes in the real world, so it is difficult to guarantee the timeliness and accuracy of orders, which further impacts stocking and order fulfilment in the back-end. Food companies have trouble effectively coordinating supply, production and sales, resulting in unnecessary waste, the occurrence of understocking and overstocking at the same time, and low inventory turnover.
Lack of support from a food safety supervision system
Diverse market demands have been shortening product life cycles. In order to minimise product damage and sales risks, how to build an effective and traceable quality and safety supervision system, from raw material procurement to production batches, distribution channels and finally consumers, has become the core concern of every food company.
Difficulty in managing multi-regional operations under rapid growth
Numerous food companies, restricted by food expiry dates, secure the end market through multi-regional operations. However, subsequent problems such as production-sales coordination, cross-organisation coordination, business differentiation and financial group management pose new challenges to business operations.
