Sage X3 provides agribusinesses with a powerful advanced business information system solution that deals with the business challenges faced by a host of agribusiness industries. Click below for the solution’s capabilities by industry:
The typical business information system challenges faced by Agribusinesses include integration with plant and equipment such as weigh scales, and weigh bridge systems for catch weight and tare weight calculations and sorting, grading and packaging equipment integrations.
Some other challenges may include EDI trade, container management, dealing with product quality, sizes and varieties, collection of picker, farm and sharecropper details for traceability purposes and plant and equipment maintenance schedules.
A Sage X3 solution is best suited to mid-sized enterprise level agri-businesses. When using the Sage X3 ERP business management platform, companies can manage goods receipts from farmers as raw goods, or from packing sheds with the goods weighed, classified (Visual or detailed Quality control process) and then goods can be sent to production or put-away in a cool store location awaiting dispatch or value added production processes.
Advanced knowledge of likely goods inward from site managers or supplier or site contract pickers assists with co-ordination of transport and helps optimise stock turnaround and compliance with customer shelf life expectations. The Sage X3 system tracks pallets and containers whilst also managing RF pick and pack (RFID, EAN128 and GS1 labels) and SSCC pallet labels for domestic and export purposes. The system also manages packaging consumption and procurement.
Weights and units can be incorporated into transport Bill of Ladings and distribution cost calculations and will even create a transport supplier RCTI if required. EDI orders are also managed by the Sage system for efficient processing and fulfilment of sales orders. Full MES integration is also possible using the advanced Sage connectors.

The SAP Business One solution is an end to end solution for agribusinesses. In addition to the duel units of measure and catch weight management the SAP Business One system, with the inclusion of Boyum Produmex and various ISV products, supports a company’s need to trade electronically (EDI), supports companies who have customers with DC’s and national accounts such as supermarket chains; addresses the warehousing needs of agribusinesses by using Boyum warehousing software which is a logical system inclusion when using the Boyum Produmex agribusiness production software. The system also includes simple to use reception screens for receipting goods inward and including integration options to industrial weigh scale systems. The core SAP Business One system provides SMB’s coverage over all the business requirements being accounting, financials (General ledger, banking, cash-flow, cash forecasting, exchange rates) procurement and sales.
Boyum Produmex offers catch weight management functions to manage products that vary in weight from piece to piece. This is most well-known with agricultural produce, and meat, poultry and cheese industries but can also arise in other industries such as steel.
In the harvesting, production and trading of nuts, vegetables and fruit products for instance, dual units of measures have to be managed in terms of quantity in numbers and weight. Ordering, receiving, inventory management, disassembly, production, sales, picking and delivery processes have to support both units. For example, as an agribusiness you may order or produce in pieces but the product value is usually based on the weight of the individual pieces and their price is based on weight. Also, weight losses of these products will have to be taken into account during the inbound, production, storage and outbound logistics processes.
