3 Reasons Why Food & Beverage Manufacturers and Distributors Need Cloud Hosting

Back to Blog

Manufacturers and distributors in the food and beverage industry need efficient and modern systems to be competitive while remaining compliant with all FDA and USDA regulations and requirements. Here are three reasons why small to midsize businesses in this sector need cloud hosting.

Streamlined Reporting

So often, we hear of companies who are overwhelmed with problems related to their outdated reporting systems and human errors. Cloud-hosted ERP systems include automated reporting capabilities to swiftly and accurately collect, analyze, and transfer data while reducing labor costs and manual data-entry errors. Cloud hosting gives food and beverage manufacturers and distributors the support needed to quickly track, access, and analyze critical data for quality assurance, inventory management, order processing, and more. With the mobile flexibility of cloud-hosting, essential data can be filtered and accessed anywhere at any time to make and execute business decisions as fast as possible.

Business Size and Scalability 

If you’re concerned that your business is too small or too large for cloud hosting, think again. One of the major benefits of cloud computing is its ability to adapt to your specific company’s size and needs now and as you grow. Cloud-hosted systems eliminate the need for separate IT departments at each office and production or distribution facility. This reduces support and maintenance costs while improving recovery time in the face of a disaster. The cloud also delivers specific resources that streamline manufacturing operations management (MOM) processes and communication to connect them throughout multiple plants.

Real-Time Tracking

In the food and beverage industry, recalls and unexpected changes can happen without notice. If you’re not prepared, these challenges can cost you a substantial amount of time and money. With the cloud, you regain control of your business through real-time tracking and can manage and control these recalls before they impact your business. Tracking systems for raw materials, resources, and finished goods also include valuable data for future audits that your company may face from regulatory agencies.
