LINKFRESH announces ERP software enhancements
A number of new software enhancements have been announced by specialist enterprise resource planning (ERP) software provider LINKFRESH.
The fresh food supply chain ERP experts has unveiled its latest software, which offers a host of new additions including a catch weight feature, case management, and the incorporation of a global trade item number (GTIN), as well as archiving enhancements.
These additions are compatible with LINKFRESH ERP on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Platform and also offer functionality on mobile platforms.
Robert Frost, CEO of LINKFRESH, said: “The new improvements we are incorporating into our software will make a big difference for suppliers, allowing them to manage their supply processes more accurately and precisely whilst also gaining greater visibility across the supply chain process.
“In wake of the recent controversy surrounding Cow & Gate baby food, questions are being asked about how supply chain processes can be improved. Through our new offering, LINKFRESH can help suppliers improve traceability and efficiency simultaneously, reducing the capacity for human error and ensuring that any supply side issues which do occur can be quickly traced to their source.”
LINKFRESH’s new catch weight capability allows operators to measure their produce in both a base and secondary measure. As an example, produce can now be managed across the supply chain and invoiced in kilograms or in pieces. This creates both a primary and secondary invoice ledger and offers far greater versatility for suppliers.
This new feature means that specific case alterations can be instructed through the software, for example taking part of one existing case and adding it to another, an attribute which enables LINKFRESH to offer a level of micro-management not possible under standard pallet management systems.
This enhances the traceability of materials in the supply chain by giving them a unique reference number which can be quickly and easily recognised by primary manufacturers, suppliers and retailers.
Adopting this universal traceability feature allows LINKFRESH ERP to streamline workflow and improve communication in the supply chain between parties, ensuring transparency at every stage of the supply chain, from source to end-user.
