Managing credit terms with suppliers in your distribution business

By | Acumatica Cloud ERP, Distribution / Supply Chain, ERP | No Comments
Two people in a warehouse.

Securing trade credit from your suppliers helps your distribution business maintain positive cash flow and great vendor relationships.

Credit management is a sound investment for any business, no matter where they are in the supply chain.

In distribution, offering credit to suppliers gives them financial flexibility to make money, which in turn allows your business to earn more profits. The same goes for your business when seeking credit from your own vendors and suppliers.

Business credit comes with risks and opportunities. It also means having the right distribution business software for managing credit with suppliers in your distribution business as part of a bigger picture in vendor or customer management.

The pros and cons of trade credit

Trade credit is a business-to-business agreement that allows for the purchase of goods and services without paying cash up front. Typically, these agreements allow suppliers to pay 30, 60 or 90 days after an invoice is issued. It’s a way for suppliers to finance purchases on credit by deferring payment, often to account for cash flow variances.

Here are some of the core advantages for distributors:

  • Better Cash Flow. Pay your suppliers after you’ve sold your goods, reducing your risk and allowing you to ride periods of financial instability
  • Ensure Supply. You can reduce the risk of not having a regular supply of goods if demand spikes by conserving cash flow and having access to sought-after goods
  • Better Insights. Suppliers are more likely to provide you with market information on trends related to your products if they are relying on you to pay on future sales
  • Improved Creditworthiness. By demonstrating reliable payback patterns, you raise your creditworthiness with vendors and have good credit references

On the other side, trade credit does carry some risk. Penalties can be steep if you miss repayment times. This can hurt your credit rating down the road. And if cash flow becomes an issue due to declining sales, you can find yourself in a deep hole.

How ERP helps you manage food and beverage surplus production

By | ERP, Food and Beverage | No Comments
Woman inspecting a food item in a manufacturing plant.

Food and beverage companies need tight controls on the supply chain to reduce food waste.

Food and beverage companies are under increasing pressure to cut waste, both by competitive pressures and public sentiment that businesses can do more to be environmentally and socially sensitive.

An enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that helps reduce waste is a vital part of any solution focused on preserving resources and reducing costs. Here’s how ERP helps you manage food and beverage surplus production.

The state of food waste

According to the United Nations, an estimated third of all food produced every year is lost or wasted. Food waste can take on many forms, according to a recent U.N. post on the issue, including the following examples:

  • Produce that is not of optimal size, shape or color is removed from the supply chain
  • Retailers and consumers discard products that are close to or just beyond the “best-used-by” date indicated by producers
  • Restaurants and households regularly discard “large quantities of wholesome edible food” that’s leftover or unused
  • Processed foods are more likely to end up in soup kitchens instead of perishable more healthy foods, which end up in dumpsters

A reduction in food waste would result in less land and water use, less hunger and poverty and fewer adverse impacts from climate change. Decaying food, for example, leads to more greenhouse gas emissions in landfills.

Activists and conservationists alike call for a slew of remediation efforts, including surplus prevention via donations, recycling or use as animal feed.

Technologies that reduce food waste result in significant ROI, according to a recent study.

The impact of conservation on the bottom line

A recent study by Champions 12.3, a global coalition focused on reducing food waste, shows that companies that invest in technologies designed to address the issue see marked benefits. The study of 1,200 business sites across 700 companies in 17 countries found that almost every site yielded a positive return.

Half of the companies generated returns on investment that were 14-fold or greater.

Investing in a food and beverage ERP helps companies optimize supply chain operations and develop greater efficiencies throughout their operations.

Choosing an ERP solution like FoodBusiness ERP, built on the Sage X3 platform, lets your food or beverage business gain considerable benefits. FoodBusiness ERP has tools specifically designed to improve supply chain operations, including:

  • Shelf-life management to track expiration and use-by dates for raw materials and finished products
  • Production planning that optimizes the scheduling of equipment and personnel, including grouping by like products to reduce bottlenecks and changeovers
  • Ability to cost, plan, trace and output production by-products
  • Formula and recipe management that automates costing, formulas, testing and labeling
  • Quality control configuration and work order management, including user-defined technical sheets and questions; functional testing at receipt of raw materials, production of finished goods and in-process work orders; and change control management of work orders, production orders and inventory revisions
  • Dashboard and business intelligence to provide real-time information, leading to better decisions
  • Food safety functionality, including lot traceability, allergen reporting, and recall management

How can your business find and optimize the right food ERP solution? NexTec delivers expertise in business software, helping food and beverage companies find, install and tune solutions to maximize return on investment. With NexTec and FoodBusiness ERP, your food or beverage company can reduce food waste, improve operations and drive efficiency.

Common manufacturing supply chain problems from COVID-19 (+ Best Practices)

By | COVID-19, ERP, Manufacturing | No Comments
Worker moving large boxes with a machine.

Manufacturers are facing significant supply chain disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted manufacturing companies across industrial sectors. As the crisis shows no signs of easing soon, businesses are beginning to grapple with significant supply chain management issues.

The prevailing challenges and disruptions are reinforcing the value of using enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to help mitigate supply chain issues. Here is a look at the common manufacturing supply chain problems from COVID-19 (+ best practices).

The scope of concern with supply chains

A survey by the Institute for Supply Management in mid-March highlighted the concerns companies have about the risk to supply chains. Among the findings:

  1. Nearly 75 percent of companies surveyed reported some supply chain disruptions due to the pandemic
  2. 16 percent reported needing to adjust revenue projections by an average of 5.6 percent
  3. 57 percent reported longer lead times from Chinese suppliers, with lead times double compared to 2019
  4. Companies are predicting more severe supply chain disruptions beginning the second quarter of 2020
  5. 44 percent of respondents have no plan to address supply chain disruptions from China

Building supply chain resilience

Recent global supply chain disruptions have prompted industries to rethink their approaches to inventory management. The popular phrase for this is “building supply chain resilience.” Such supply chain models have the following attributes:

  • Forecasting to detect early warning signs of supply chain disruptions and prompt responses to shift production and sourcing accordingly
  • A diversified supplier base
  • Contingency plans to use backup suppliers
  • Understanding your suppliers’ supply chains and identifying issues in those second- and third-degree sources

“Unfortunately, with something like COVID-19, an epidemic that is affecting large swaths of the world and threatening to turn into a pandemic, even the best-laid contingency plans may prove inadequate,” noted Goker Aydin of the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School in a recent article.

Manufacturers need integrated ERP solutions that improve inventory management to handle COVID-19 disruptions to the supply chain.

How ERP solutions help reduce the risk

Manufacturing ERP software helps manufacturers address supply chain risks with tools that allow for better collaboration, insights and integration with suppliers and partners.

With the Acumatica Cloud ERP, for example, your business can leverage an integrated inventory management solution. Here are some of the core benefits and features of the Acumatica Cloud ERP solutions:

  • Reduced Order Times. Automated sales order processing reduces delays and allows for rules-based management of multiple warehouse sites, returns and purchasing
  • Inventory Accounting. Avoid financial errors by connecting your inventory and accounting processes, with updated transactional records and on-demand documentation
  • Single Source of Data. With one source of information, you eliminate data silos and reentry of information, leading to fewer mistakes and better collaboration across the enterprise.

ERP Empowers better budgeting and decision-making in agriculture

By | Agriculture, ERP | No Comments

Row of farm crops.

Are you looking for a way to improve budgeting in your agriculture business? This aspect of farming can be challenging. Arming yourself with the right resources and tools empowers you to make better decisions and nets you the best possible results.

Budgeting is about using the best resources to plan for the future. Enterprise resource planning software, or ERP software, brings together all the aspects of your agriculture business. All the processes from inventory to equipment acquisition through to the final products must be managed accordingly, and ERP software makes this happen.

Use an ERP system when you need to create a budget and make important decisions to streamline the business processes that keep your farm running smoothly. Better budgeting means better decision-making.

Why you need a budget

A budget helps you run your farm with optimal efficiency and profitability. Without it, you would have a difficult time identifying challenges and overcoming them. It also allows you to monitor your finances and make well-informed decisions.

All small businesses need budgets to avoid issues with long-term planning and unexpected expenses. Yet many small agriculture business owners skip this important step.

According to a recent survey, 74% of businesses with no more than 10 employees did not create an official budget in 2018. Among those who took the time to create one, 37% spent more than they planned for during the first and second quarters of the same year.

Use proven best practices when creating a budget. These will serve as guidelines for acquiring the right resources and using them wisely. Consider the following.

Use industry benchmarks

Industry benchmarks allow you to compare your budget numbers with existing industry standards. If yours are radically different, find out why.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions and dig into those industry resources to understand the differences. This is also a great way to confirm their validity.

Monitor data for more than one season

Man drinking a cup of coffee while looking at his desktop computer screen.

Monitor your crop data over multiple seasons. Though it’s important to know how each crop performed during the previous year, changes in details such as soil composition and water levels impact the results.

Keep track of small business trends and forecasts for the coming year. This includes statistics about small business owners in general.

Use the right agriculture ERP software budgeting tools

The right tools are critical to building a successful budget. They should be easy to use for everyone involved.

Collaboration is an important part of budgeting. The tools you choose should accommodate key decision-makers so information can be shared across all platforms.

Select a budgeting tool that aligns with agriculture best practices and isn’t overly complex or time-consuming. You’re outlining the direction of your agriculture business and creating an expectation model for the next three to five years.

The tool should allow you to implement forecasting of historical data and market conditions to predict financial outcomes. Use previous budgets to determine how your farm aligns with this market data to make predictions for the foreseeable future.

Understand potential challenges

Every agriculture business experiences challenges which can make budgeting difficult. Obstacles such as droughts, storms, and natural disasters affect crop growth during any given year. Equipment failures prompt the need for repairs or replacements.

When constructing a budget, you’ll need to plan for the possibility of such occurrences. The right budgeting tool can help you do that efficiently so you’ll have the resources to handle various challenges that might arise.

Sage X3 for agriculture ERP needs

AgriBusiness ERP, built on the Sage X3 platform, is an ERP solution that is fast, flexible and easy to use. It gives you control of all your resources and takes the guesswork out of planning your next budget by placing all the information you need at your fingertips. Let NexTec be your ERP software partner to ensure the best results and fastest return on investment.

3 Ways field services businesses use ERP to plan around the COVID-19 crisis

By | Acumatica Cloud ERP, ERP, Field Services | No Comments

Technicians standing outside a garage door.The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the field services industry in numerous ways. Many companies have implemented protective measures to ensure the safety of their employees and the customers they serve.

Businesses are asking screening questions while on service calls to find out if anyone in a household has been ill before sending service technicians to residences. Some local areas may also temporarily prohibit service calls, while customers may opt to wait until the pandemic lifts before allowing anyone into their homes.

Guidelines are being established to handle new virus protocols. These new changes are impacting business on all sides, and companies need a way to track all this new information.

As the national number of COVID-19 cases increased, companies tightened their service call policies. For example, many limited calls to only functional repairs, while some service providers did not work in zip codes where a great number of cases had been reported. Employees are also concentrating on sanitizing parts and other products, wearing face masks, and taking other health measures to ensure the virus is not transmitted.

Field service companies need a way to keep track of all the new information coming down the pipeline. According to a recent study, field service management is expected to grow at a compound growth rate (CGR) of 16.2%. This means that a field service market valued at $2.8 billion in 2019 will reach $5.9 billion in 2024.

Acumatica Field Service Edition is a great way to manage these changes as they arise.

What is Acumatica Field Service Edition?

Acumatica Field Service Edition is designed to increase productivity while promoting the organization. The Field Service Edition helps companies in any industry track a wide range of data and services. The tool lets you maintain a real-time view of business activities by integrating field service operations with the back office.

Acumatica helps improve field service management by streamlining dispatching and reducing response times. You can minimize costs across the board while improving customer experience. Here are three benefits you will gain by using this tool.

1. Manage scheduling

Field service technicians juggle many appointments in one day, which sometimes makes it difficult to assist customers in a timely manner. The COVID-19 crisis has forced many companies to use a skeleton crew due to answering fewer service calls. Acumatica Field Service Edition includes sophisticated scheduling features that allow flexible or last-minute scheduling when emergencies arise.

2. Manage inventory

Supply lines often experience disruption during times of crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic is certainly no exception. The Acumatica Field Service Edition helps technicians and other field services employees keep track of inventory. This decreases delays that can occur when such information is not readily available and makes scheduling appointments easier.

3. Track costs

Tracking costs can minimize cash flow issues. During COVID-19, field service companies are looking for ways to save money, which makes this feature even more relevant. Acumatica allows you to keep track of all costs such as time, materials, and labor.

You can also compare the actual costs of a project with original estimates. The tool lets you revise and manage budgets in real-time so the most up-to-date information is always available.

Field service managers face many common challenges. According to a recent survey, 46% of companies report one of their biggest issues is keeping up with increasing demand from customers. The Acumatica Field Service Edition is equipped with all the features you need to meet those demands while improving the customer experience.

The importance of supply chain transparency in cannabis businesses

By | Cannabis, Sage X3 | No Comments
Person inspecting a cannabis plant.

Customer safety and compliance are key issues that can be addressed with the right cannabis ERP solution.

The cannabis industry, still a relatively new business sector, is grappling with dramatic growth. Among the consequences of the rapid rise in demand and profits are increased regulatory pressure and customer expectations about quality and consistency.

For fledgling cannabis companies and established players, that means an increased reliance on sound supply chain management. With proper supply chain tools in place, your cannabis business can be prepared for high growth and the challenges that come with it.

The importance of consistency

One of the hallmarks of the food and beverage industry is consistency in taste, color, aroma, and consistency. Coca-Cola tastes the same in most corners of the world, for example, and a McDonald’s French fry is generally the same texture and taste wherever you get it.

Cannabis companies face the same challenges today – delivering consistent products to build and retain repeat business. Customers expect the same products they buy to taste and affect them the same way months later. However, for companies that are not vertically integrated from seed to sale, there’s a real risk of lost business.

This issue is especially challenging for companies that operate in multiple states or provinces. But given the legal challenges, it’s increasingly more difficult for multi-state operators to deliver consistency. That’s where your cannabis business needs enterprise resource planning (ERP) tools that streamline and standardize supply chain operations.

Cannabis bud, oil and gel.

Customers expect consistent quality in their cannabis purchases.

The challenge of cannabis compliance

Compliance challenges reinforce the importance of supply chain standardization. The cannabis industry faces multiple challenges with compliance:

  • A lack of industry best practices for remaining in compliance across multiple jurisdictions
  • An evolving regulatory landscape as more states legalize cannabis and local regulations remain inconsistent. Frequent changes to regulations create an additional compliance issue
  • A lack of standardized testing guidelines, largely due to the federal illegality issues, leading states to create their own standard and enforcement protocols
  • Production inconsistencies that can impact consumer safety

What’s needed are cannabis ERP tools that help standardize supply chain operations, especially around compliance, testing, and safety. The cannabis supply chain needs to facilitate business practices that provide for product consistency, especially as companies seek to scale up operations. Your cannabis ERP needs to provide quality control, meet evolving regulatory guidelines and access resources consistently and efficiently.

These same tools must also address issues such as traceability and sustainability, as customers expect these companies, as they do of other makers of consumer products, to practice sustainable production and positive social impact.

Finding the right cannabis ERP

NexTec CannaBusiness ERP provides your cannabis company with tools that solve unique and complex industry supply chain issues. Built on Sage X3, CannaBusiness ERP delivers a customizable cannabis ERP solution with the following features:

  • Crop management, including production features and nutrient tracking
  • Seed-to-sale traceability
  • Inventory tracking
  • Integration with government regulatory compliance systems
  • Quality control assurance
  • Tax collection management
  • Financial management
  • Customer and product analytics

NexTec offers business software expertise that helps your cannabis company identify, install and optimize the right cannabis ERP.  Learn more about technology that helps your business grow.

Field Services: Understand needs and build strong client relationships

By | ERP, Field Services | No Comments
Technician working on computer hardware.

Field services may not seem people-centered, but they can build strong business relationships.

Are you looking for technology that will place client information at your fingertips when you need it most? Field services technicians spend a lot of time serving customers in their homes or businesses. Understanding their needs upon arrival can be a strong differentiator for providing top-notch service.

Forming personalized connections leads to customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. People are turning to digital channels to find answers and solutions, often preferring this type of experience over traditional communication methods. According to a recent field service study, 45% of field technicians feel their tools aren’t fast enough, a problem that can be solved with the use of mobile software.

This technology is proving cost-effective for business owners by giving employees access to the most up-to-date information in real-time. It’s also easy to manage.

Improve the customer journey

Customers often prefer to experience products and make purchases from the comfort of their own homes. A field visit adds human interaction to the customer journey.

Once the customer has conducted research and made inquiries using technology, the field technician can provide further assistance in the form of an in-person connection. This can improve the customer experience by continuing to nurture the customer relationship.

As customers broaden the range of devices used for making purchases and acquiring services, the nature of the field service must change. Customers conduct much of their research before receiving a visit from the field services technician. Because of this, industry employees need to equip themselves with the right information ahead of time.

Machine-to-machine communications allow field services employees to collect and automate data more frequently. Artificial intelligence and advanced data analytics solutions help business leaders create models that predict possible issues before they occur.

The right field services ERP makes things easier for dispatchers, supervisors, and field technicians.

Address field services challenges

The field services industry is presented with numerous challenges every day. Acumatica software can help mitigate issues by placing important information in the hands of employees so they can meet customer needs and improve the customer experience. Here are some examples.

Preventing the need for return visits

Return visits occur because of incomplete or inaccurate information. These visits are costly, and can be avoided by providing field services employees the information they need to complete the job during the first visit.

Acumatica allows employees to access this information prior to the visit and on-site. Knowing details such as accurate location data and the correct equipment will enable technicians to solve the problem the first time around.

Providing quick response for repair requests

Another challenge businesses face is knowing when critical repairs are necessary. Equipment typically includes sensors that alert businesses when such an issue occurs. Wireless technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) give technicians the information needed to avoid larger repairs.

Benefits of using a mobile ERP

A mobile enterprise resource plan (ERP) system provides many benefits. Field services workers can make better decisions if they have the right information readily available when working in the field. Finances Online reported ERP software accumulates more than 25 billion dollars each year, proving its usefulness in the field services industry.

Acumatica Field Services Edition is an ERP system that provides employees access to valuable information while keeping employees at headquarters constantly connected to the field staff. This solution allows workers to access information on a smartphone or other mobile device, which increases productivity. NexTec can provide the answers and solutions you need to successfully implement Acumatica into your daily business processes today.

Field services technicians should receive training on becoming customer-centric. This, along with the Acumatica, will strengthen customer relationships while helping businesses grow.
