Cloud acceptance has grown to remarkable proportions in recent years. Forrester Research, a business analysis agency, predicts that “the public Cloud market in 2020 will grow to approximately $191 billion, and that’s about 20% larger than our 2011 projection.” With this in mind, they strongly recommend modern companies to explicitly consider Cloud-based solutions in order to remain relevant and competitive.
Scalability and total solution
Experts and analysts consider Cloud technology as an appealing option for almost every sector, including the food industry. Smaller companies are content with manual processes and point solutions in the start-up phase, varying from Exact for bookkeeping purposes to Excel spreadsheets for inventory control and registration of receipt. For larger, rapidly-growing companies, Cloud technology offers the necessary scalability. It also offers a comprehensive solution for supporting production complexity, tracking & tracing regulations, B2B and B2C distribution channel strategies and complicated supplier demands such as EDI.
Level playing field
Small food companies often have to compete with multinational giants for shelf space and customer loyalty. The larger brands have vertical and horizontal scale and integration advantages that small market players can only dream of and can hardly ever match. Cloud-based software systems ensure a level playing field. They offer access to detailed supply chain, demand planning and forecasting insights that were previously only available in advanced, complex ERP systems..
This is why Cloud systems offer much-improved insight into costs and revenues. Rigorous cost control and effective margin and availability management throughout the supply chain has given larger companies a significant competitive edge in bygone decades. Innovative companies that make use of proven Cloud computing business software now have the same powerful functionality at their disposal.
Automatic upgrades and simple integration of customisation and point solutions
By eliminating servers and software at your site, NetSuite also streamlines the maintenance and upgrades of applications and hardware. Upgrades are seamlessly carried out in the Cloud, without the need for cumbersome projects.
The well-known typical IT challenges that food companies face include the following:
• You work with various software systems that provide only a limited insight into the overall status of your business performance at any given moment, and this leads to challenges with regard to compliance and quality.
• Your current system cannot be upgraded and needs to be re-implemented time and again.
• Your software systems are not capable of growing at the same rate as your company, for example when you decide to venture abroad.
• You are struggling with various integration challenges caused by the diversity of software systems that are unable to communicate with one another in a standard fashion, thereby limiting the possibilities of Smart Industry.
• Your software systems are not able, or hardly able, to offer seamless solutions.
• A lot of extra work is caused by transformation and maintenance activities that need to be carried out in the various software systems.
• You cannot pro-actively reach out or react to change within your own distribution model. Consider in this respect the use of EDI, e-Commerce, POS or Low-Code development such as Mendix.
Integrating different software systems is a complex and time-consuming process that demands considerable IT know-how. Moreover, errors during the manual adjustment of day-to-day changes in the various systems cannot be ruled out.
By using NetSuite, these problems and their associated irritations become a thing of the past.
