In today’s fast paced world of increasing legislation, tighter margins and shorter lead times, there are serious questions that you, as business owners and managers, need to ask yourselves. Why are businesses still operating with paper-based systems and how can we trust that our traceability can be managed securely on hand written paper? Why do management spend half their week wrestling with spreadsheets just to extract some meaningful data? Why is it, when 60% of all turnover is consumed by materials, we don’t know how much inventory we have on a day to day basis? Why don’t we know the cost of each batch? How are we not be able to put an exact figure on waste?

All of the above are things that your business should be able to tell you almost instantly. These facts should be at your fingertips. Without the information, how can you control your business efficiently and effectively? These are very real issues, which ultimately show us that paper-based systems are by their very nature, inefficient!

You Need to Invest in Your Information Machine Now

You need a complete business management Solution. One that connects all processes into one solution. It is only when all your business processes are connected with one solution that true automation can be achieved, simply because all your processes (Sales, Production, Purchases, Quality, Training, and Accounts) can now talk to each other and exchange information, reducing the amount of work required by each person. These systems don’t replace jobs. They enhance jobs.

These systems do not cost a lot anymore. In fact these systems pay for themselves. With the dawn of cloud computing, there is one solutions out there that is available to every business for the cost of one part time employee. A complete business management system that will optimize all your processes.

Now, if you could employ one more person, just one more person to do all of this. An employee who managed all of the above for you, generated instant reports, managed real time inventory, Batch Costings and reduced waste. An employee who worked 24/7, 365 days a year. Never called in sick, never leaves you.

You would bite my hand off for that employee!

So why not employ Verify Technologies to help?

At Verify Technologies we look to form lasting partnerships. With us you pay one low cost monthly subscription (equivalent to a part time wage). In return we provide;

  • The Verify Technologies software platform
  • Project management
  • On-going support and maintenance and updates as they become available
  • Operator training and support

We essentially become your outsourced I.T department. So why wouldn’t you make Verify Technologies your next employee? Visit www.VerifyTechnologies.com/food-traceability to find how to improve efficiency, reduce cost and waste and make your life a little easier!

 

Seerys Bakery Receive BRC – AA rating using Verify Technologies System

VerifyTechnology2April2016Sharon Buggy (Financial controller) & Karolina Ryczkowska (Inventory controller): “We needed to bring our business into the 21st century, because all our processes were very manual. We discovered we were losing a lot of money through wastage. We chose Verify because they were the most cost effective and most importantly they integrated with our accounts package. And I Suppose thrust was a big thing. We liked them.

“Verify Helped us to get much greater control over our processes. We have a Quality Portal, Sales portal, Production portal. Which shows us in real time all the processes. So we can control it much tighter. We can trace any batch code and see what it is doing inside the business. We can control our processes much tighter.

“The help and support from Verify was tremendous! Before Verify everything was manual. Now we use tablets and handhelds which frees up a lot of resources and peoples time. We have plans to integrate our equipment with the system for greater traceability and accuracy. Obviously our plans are to continue with Verify and develop with Verify in the years ahead.”
