Ventura, CA—Dec. 21, 2015—LINKFRESH, a provider of supply chain enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions designed specifically for the fresh food industry, announced new software enhancements, which offer a host of new features including catch weight, case management, the incorporation of a global trade item number (GTIN) and archiving enhancements. These new additions are compatible with LINKFRESH ERP on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Platform and also offer functionality across mobile platforms.
“The new improvements we are incorporating into our software will make a big difference for suppliers, allowing them to manage their supply processes more accurately and precisely, whilst also gaining greater visibility across the supply chain process,” said Robert Frost, CEO of LINKFRESH. “In wake of recent controversies, questions are being asked about how supply chain processes can be improved. Through our new offerings, LINKFRESH can help suppliers improve traceability and efficiency simultaneously, reducing the capacity for human error and ensuring that any supply side issues which do occur can be quickly traced to their source.”
The following is an overview of the new enhancements for LINKFRESH ERP:
- LINKFRESH’s new catch weight capability allows operators to use ERP to measure their produce in both a base and secondary measure. For example, produce can be managed across the supply chain and invoiced in kilograms or pieces. This creates both a primary and secondary invoice ledger, and offers far greater versatility for suppliers.
- Innovation in pallet management led to the creation of case management, an enhancement that allows for individual cases to be managed through LINKFRESH ERP software. This new attribute means that specific case alterations can be instructed through the software, for example, taking part of one existing case and adding it to another, an attribute that enables LINKFRESH to offer a level of micro-management not possible under a simple pallet management system.
- The incorporation of GTINs into the latest LINKFRESH software allows for material in the supply chain to be allocated both an internal reference number and a universally recognized GTIN. This enhances the traceability of materials in the supply chain by giving them a unique reference number that can be quickly and easily recognized by primary manufacturers, suppliers and retailers. Adopting this universal traceability feature allows LINKFRESH ERP to streamline workflow and improve communication in the supply chain between parties, ensuring transparency at every stage of the supply chain from farm to fork.
- The new archiving capability introduced into the latest LINKFRESH software allows for a cleaner, less cluttered approach to supply chain management, removing unneeded information from view quickly and easily.
