Dropped in Food Industry

EDI will give you the platform to succeed in the Food industry

There’s a reason why I’m writing this blog online, rather than drafting it all out by hand and sending it to you. It’s quicker, easier and it’ll flag up any errors I make along the way.

Just think about how much of a no-brainer it is for me. Now, ask yourself, why on earth would you spend time printing out your orders or processing invoices using paper? Chances are, the major retailers won’t be dealing with you and the competition is sailing ahead.

To make matters worse, there’s a chance you could lose all this paper. You know traceability is at the heart of the Food industry, so you don’t want to be a chancer in the event of a customer audit. You didn’t employ people based on their calligraphy skills.

Eliminate paper from your operation to breed confidence

We are here to manage the entire EDI process for you with Dynamics Food. What do you need? We can receive your EDI messages from each trading partner, map them, pass them directly to Dynamics 365 Business Central and then create an order confirmation, invoice, sales order… the list goes on.

A streamlined, electronic interchange of all your invoices and delivery notifications will consequently result in fewer lost orders and deliveries. With a secure business process and audit trail, you can quickly resolve any disputes with your customers if anything does hit the fan.

Dynamics Food will free up your time to focus on making the decisions that will really count for the future of your business, rather than firefighting and extinguishing problems. With processes that are both repeatable and reliable, you will see a recognisable improvement in your customer service levels with the retailers.
