Correct batch control can increase profits and reduce inventory obsolescence

Correct batch control can increase profits and reduce inventory obsolescence

How often when a product was planned to be sold or used in production do you find the batch was near its expiry date or had already expired?

The result, creating an inventory stock-out, a potential customer lost order, lost revenue and profits, including an obsolete inventory write-off. Between a combination of defining a warning period prior to expiry and calculating a planned inspection date, ProcessForce uses these features in conjunction with SAP Business One alerts and workflow tools, to correct batch control which helps reduce these business issues and maximise profit.

ProcessForce Batch Control and Traceability functions, alongside SAP Business One, provide the necessary process and controls to trace the genealogy of a product. While control functions manage the day-to-day operations of working with traceable products. (Discover more about ProcessForce within the Food and Beverage industry)
