Always be prepared for tomorrow’s shipment with dairy ERP

As a manufacturer of dairy products, you have to be forward thinking. Given the short shelf life of your primary ingredient, that means real-time visibility of the supply of raw milk—including its variable butterfat, protein, and other solids components—and statistically sound forecasts of what products you need to produce and where they are going. Infor provides the most powerful, purpose-built, and complete suite of solutions developed specifically for dairy manufacturers to do just that.
The benefits of the cloud simply cannot be ignored anymore. The cloud is faster, more flexible and also reliable. Moreover, it takes a lot of management out of your hands and it is easy to adapt standards. So it forms a strong basis for the future, in which data will play an increasingly important role in dairy production.
