SAP Solution for the Food Industry

Which manager would not like to have full control over their company?





Companies in the food industry may find it hard to achieve such control, since business operations are very diverse, and each of them requires great attention as well as well-developed IT support. 

These operations include the purchasing and processing of all kinds of materials of various quality; following recipes; handling of by-products and co-products at multiple levels; keeping track of products from production to consumers; managing expiry dates in warehouses using FIFO, FEFO or other handling strategies; product commissioning and billing to a large number of customers; arranging shipping from production sites to customers; cost price calculation and multi-level break-even analysis; daily reports for periodic settlement with retailers; need to connect to peripheral devices; and the need to quickly react to market changes. All of these tasks may constitute challenges in the daily operation of your business.

"The SAP implementation was planned on a template developed in Malaysia however it was not in compliance with Hungarian accounting regulations and commercial practice. We needed an experienced Hungarian consulting partner for the localization project. The competence and expertise of HostLogic’s consultants were outstanding which made a smooth go-live possible."

"Our aim was to integrate all our business processes into the SAP system, and we achieved this aim without having to make compromises. Besides the financial, accounting, inventory and controlling modules of SAP, we introduced the purchasing, stock management, sales and production modules as well. After eight months of use we can definitely say we make profit from making our invoices more quickly and accurately: as a result, the number of invoice complaints has also decreased, and our customers pay in time."

“With the introduction of hosting services we did save some costs; however, there are other, non-financial benefits that are more important. Employee work loads have decreased, and our data are stored with maximum security, which is a significant aspect. Also, there are no production shortfalls because of system downtimes. With the hosting services we are more relaxed than if we ourselves had to operate our system."

/András Muzsek
Kabai Táp Zrt./
