Eliminate your frustrations

Produce spoils before it reaches the end destination

The Aptean Food and Beverage ERP system that iPlan implements provides for complete traceability throughout the supply chain. This means that fresh produce can the traced according to lot, pallet number, batch number, etc. so that you always know where your fresh produce is in the process of getting to the consumer.  There are, of course, unforeseen circumstances that can lead to fresh produce spoiling, but lack of data and traceability will not be one of them.

Information gets lost between the grower, pack-house, and the exporter

Information can easily get lost when large enterprises, which include growers, pack-houses and exporters, are not using the same system that allows for centralised data sharing. The iPlan Food and Beverage experts support all stakeholders to satisfy their needs, thus ensuring that you do not need to install more than one system. Data exchange between stakeholders is then easy and automated to improve communication and transparency.

By the time your fresh produce hits the market, you have lost track of the total cost considering changes to input costs due to unpredictable of environmental factors

When climate conditions change, the crop care requirements change; you may need to adjust your fertilizer programme, change your irrigation system, etc. The cost of these changes is not static either and a lack of data and information can hamper your insight into the true cost of production. The Aptean Food and Beverage ERP system that iPlan implements, contains tools to help you to keep track of all costs so that you can make business-critical decisions with all the relevant information at your fingertips.
