At the upcoming ExpoDirekt 2018, the SYNER.con specialist trade group will be showing one of the leading merchandise management systems for food companies in German-speaking areas. The software addresses agricultural businesses that market their products directly in farm shops and at weekly markets or supply wholesalers.
The main focus of the system is the networking of scales, POS systems and software to bring together all operating technology and inventory in a single, open platform. Farmers and direct marketers can monitor their ongoing costs and sustainably reduce them, regardless of whether they are collecting crops, receiving goods, billing documents or selling in their farm shops. Centralized data maintenance also saves precious time, allowing them to focus on their everyday tasks.
With flexibly combinable software modules, the APRO.con ERP system can be customised to each company separately. This way, users only pay for functions they actually use. ''If you want to do an extension of your business, the system can easily be extended to the desired module. With an APRO.con maintenance contract, your ERP solution is always up to date. Compared to single updates, this saves almost 30 percent of the costs,'' says a representative. Holders of a special maintenance contract are also provided with support via hotline, fax, e-mail and remote maintenance.
Exact control of the complete trade chain
APRO.con offers a complete solution for all stages of the retail chain. First of all, there is less of a purchasing effort, since the system automates the many steps in the ordering process and also provides clients with an overview of suppliers and purchase prices. This is intended, for example, to facilitate purchasing at the regional fresh produce supplier for the farm shop, while at the same time ensuring complete traceability of purchased products.
During the harvests, both quantities and employee performance can be recorded efficiently and in a scanner-based manner. It is entered in a central database, according to field and variety. In addition to this, the solution provides all the key figures to optimize operations at the points of sale. ''Labeling and picking are all done in one go, as APRO.con simplifies outbound operations and helps to easily create custom labels. Whether for self-service goods, for boxes for distribution to restaurants or for pallets that go into the wholesale trade.''
Furthermore, APRO.con will create the bills for all products automatically, in compliance with the guidelines and at the touch of a button. Price quotes, delivery notes and invoices are created in no time at all.
