Sanderson, the publicly-owned provider of software for the food and drink industry, has won a contract to supply its UnityF8 business system to meat products manufacturer Gotzinger Smallgoods.
Gotzinger manufactures a range of smallgoods including ham, bacon, sausages, cold cuts and pre-pack products. After rapid recent growth the business needed to replace its existing business system to improve control across inventory, production, sales analysis and new product development (NPD).
The Sanderson implementation introduces inventory control and sales picking driven by the system instead of manual order sheets. Products picked using handheld Radio Data Terminals will capture quantity and actual weight for accurate invoicing. UnityF8’s NPD functions will speed the product costing process and sales analysis to assist with marketing decisions.
Mark Lofthouse, General Manager of Sanderson Australia, said:
“Gotzinger Smallgoods will benefit from information being a click away instead of walking the floor or thumbing through manual order sheets. Invoicing will be more accurate as actual weights are captured by bar code scanning rather than hand written records.”
“The NPD module will provide easy access to previous recipes and its links to costing means that customer quotations can be delivered quickly and accurately. “
