Industry Solutions Agribusiness

Small medium sized businesses

CitySoft recommends SAP Business One together with Produmex for agribusinesses, an ISV product for SAP Business One, and designed to meet the needs of mature and growing small to medium sized businesses in the agribusiness industry.

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.

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 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 Produmex warehousing software which is a logical system inclusion when using the 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.
