In the food processing industry, it is inevitable that all departments will have their ideal or go-to software system. Many of the best on the market are specialized for one department and do not connect data behind the scenes. The disconnect can create an ongoing internal struggle to keep teams on the same page with a cohesive data flow. Opportunities to integrate data and eliminate redundancies can be challenging, without a flexible system in place.
Genesis R&D from ESHA is the top provider of nutrition data calculations & labeling software. For the individuals in formulation and packaging, ESHA’s nutrition database provides a powerful tool for industry professionals needing comprehensive nutrition data from a reliable source. While it is excellent for the early and end stages of production, Genesis R&D provides minimal inventory control to support live production tracking and processing. Another lacking area is formula management, specifically the ability to manage multiple formula versions for various ranges of production.
Specializing in batch and formula manufacturing, Vicinity Software offers a robust formula management application with the ability to track various formula versions and provide limited inventory monitoring.
