One thing that is consistent in all facets of the food and beverage industry is trust. There is the trust from the customer that purchases and consumes the food or beverage item. There is the trust that is needed between different teams, businesses and collaborators to make sure that the distribution and supply chain process runs smoothly and efficiently. And there is the trust from regulators both internal and external to businesses and government agencies to ensure that any safety risks to the public are avoided.
Trust is something that is earned. And once it is broken, it is something that is very difficult to repair. In the food and beverage industry, a loss of trust can equate to heavy financial losses, litigation, serious health risks and an overall loss in credibility for the business as well as their employees.
Trust has always been at the centre of Endeavour Solutions operations. We developed a food and beverage industry-specific ERP module, known as Endeavour FaB; to specifically cater to the demands of the industry. Leveraging our technology and consultancy experience, we help businesses build scalable processes that will allow them to deliver their food or beverage products to their customer as promised. This means that those products are readily available at the point of sale, presented as promised and pose no risk to the customer.
Endeavour Solutions helps Australian businesses achieve this by implementing ‘precision monitoring of inventory’ within the supply chain.
One chink in the armour of the supply chain process can have devastating effects for businesses and consumers’ experiences. Poor monitoring can lead to the under or oversupply of stock, which forces business managers to make inaccurate forecasting decisions when raising purchase orders or accounting for receivables. Profits erode due to perishing stock or sales diminish due to the unavailability of product to fulfil customer orders.
Therefore, to preserve the confidence that the right product in the right amounts will be there for customers, wholesale distributors should utilise a software system that will improve processes and efficiency to distribute stock quickly and accurately.
Endeavour Solutions helps businesses make sense of changing demand trends.
The food and beverage industry continues to grow with emerging niches, which is making the market more complex. Businesses that have worked with successful supply-chain management processes in the past find that their existing solution is unable to adapt to the demands of the changing market. It’s necessary for businesses to develop creative processes and leverage technology that will minimise the risks encountered during distribution.
Endeavour Solutions help to optimise delivery schedules and routes.
The distribution route and schedule has always had an impact on costs, but it is also having an impact on the customer’s purchase decisions. Data from your ERP solution and strategic guidance from Endeavour can help businesses minimise their distribution routes environmental impact, as well as minimising distribution costs.
