Margins for processors are typically narrow and operation costs need to be closely watched. Investments in capital equipment are a significant method of improving efficiencies and reducing costs but these same investments require timely planning and support of financial data. Adding cooking, flavoring and blending activities to field side plants improves margins but puts additional demands on information and reporting technologies in order to follow activities from field to table. Meantime consumer tastes and trends change causing demands for new packaging styles and methods that reflect health consciousness and sustainability. Software tools that support these diverse business needs on a single technology platform that is easily accessed and understood by a wide range of skill sets are required to support these demanding actions. The Horizons Manufacturing Suite of products integrated to DynamicsGP provides real time access to the manufacturing and financial data including support for wireless devices, lot control and quality assurance.
