The company processes orders received from all parts of the country at its centralized plant in Cincinnati, Ohio, where products are produced, packed and shipped via common carrier.

Foxtail Foods will implement the entire Adonix X3 Process suite, including process manufacturing for recipe and ingredient management, inventory control with lot traceability, as well as Adonix X3's intrinsic Business Intelligence tool that provides user-defined business analytics on a real-time basis.

Adonix X3 Process combines the features of the company's flagship product, Adonix X3, a Web-native ERP suite that integrates manufacturing, distribution, warehouse management, customer relationship management (CRM) and finance functionality, with application features that address the needs of process manufacturers, including recipe management, lot traceability, shelf life management, quality control and regulatory compliance.

It is suited for companies producing baked goods, confections, dairy and other food and beverage products.

"Adonix X3 Process will provide us with an integrated, cost-effective system to manage production, distribution and finance more efficiently throughout our organization."
