With supply chain disruptions, rapidly changing compliance regulations, and rising demands for food quality, today’s food and beverage (F&B) industry must be more agile and innovative than ever before. These manufacturing challenges emphasize the importance of leveraging Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology, a system that helps organizations automate and streamline their operations.

While ERP significantly improves efficiency and profitability, a one-size-fits-all approach will not work for a highly specialized industry. Hence, it is vital for F&B manufacturers to find a food industry-specific platform that increases productivity, accelerates business growth, and helps overcome operational demands in today’s cut-throat market while maintaining compliance.

In this LIVE Webcast, Jack Payne, Director of Solutions Consulting at Aptean, will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the current trends and best practices in enterprise resource planning (ERP). He will also offer key considerations to ensure a successful ERP implementation, especially in the food and beverage industry.

Key topics include:

• The Role of ERP in the Food & Beverage (F&B) Industry

• Recent Trends and Pressing Challenges

• Selecting the Best ERP Solution for F&B Manufacturers

• ERP Implementation: Best Practices
