Native SuiteApp for F&B sector FernSpeed unveils recipe of business success
You are not alone. From food manufacturers, F&B caterers, restaurateurs, ready-food suppliers, kitchen staff to any other practitioners, they have been facing more or less the same challenges:
Recipe NOT in line with production
Actual usage of each ingredient is NOT measured during the production, no comparison can be made with the amount indicated in the recipes, ingredients CANNOT be fully utilised for cost minimisation.
Production cost out of control
Costing is far from accurate, as there are NO recorded data on ingredient amounts, the use of food prep machines, overheads and labour inputs. Higher labour cost is involved when manual operations and inventory updates are required for each ingredient transfer.
High stockout risk
Inventory levels do not align with production plans, stockout can hurt business.
Hindrance to overall business growth
Without data-tracking throughout the entire production, the cost-and-output relationship as well as cost-benefit analysis cannot be worked out.
FernSpeed changes the rules of the game in recipe management and production management
Integration of recipe management and production planning
FernSpeed can compute the amount of each ingredient required for a range of production outputs, Each sales order can auto-generate production orders as well as purchase orders of ingredients based on inventory availability.
Cost control automation
The Backflush feature enables auto-cost deduction and calculation.
FernSpeed differs from the general manufacturing systems in several aspects
Other Manufacturing System
Each recipe can contain 1 or more ingredient(s) to produce more than one primary dish/beverage, along with other co-product(s) & waste product(s). All outputs enhance value to the business.
General manufacturing systems primarily manage multiple materials (ingredients) for one single product (dish or drink) only.
“Yield Management” & “Waste Management” features are added for better cost control and higher production efficiency.
Not every manufacturing system has the “Yield Management” & “Waste Management” features.
Each finished product can generate one master recipe with several versions based on costing, order requirements or any variation of seasonal ingredients.
Each end-product comes with a single version of Bill-of-Material (BOM) recipe only.
FernSpeed redefines the Production Management concept with automation capabilities
Coming with additional exciting features, FernSpeed takes all the boxes
