Enterprise 21 ERP Software Featured in Manufacturing.net

By: Thomas Cutler

Manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler profiled the significant challenges faced by The Green Bay Cheese Co. due to government regulations and customer compliance issues. The feature article appeared in Manufacturing.net and can be read in its entirety at http://www.manufacturing.net/article/CA6309942.html.
Cutler also reviewed the rationale for their selection of Technology Group International's ERP software Enterprise 21. According to Cutler Green Bay Cheese Company needed an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software package that was designed for the food and beverage industry. The package needed to be able to provide functionality that could:
&bull Track individual cheese lots from raw material receipt through consumption in manufacturing and onto shipment of finished product to their retail and food service customers
&bull Manage special customer pricing requirements based upon the current market price for cheese
&bull Provide detailed costing of their manufacturing operations
&bull Prepare customer-specific private labeling of product including product details and lot analysis information.
The Green Bay Cheese Co.

found their solution in TGI's ERP package, Enterprise 21. According to Rebecca Gill, TGI's vice-president, "Green Bay Cheese was able to address their requirements and more."
Specifically the cheese manufacturer is now able to:
&bull Electronically store womb-to-tomb lot tracking of cheese so that a given lot of cheese can be traced to all customers who received material produced from that particular lot
&bull Interactively calculate online customer pricing based upon cheese market price and customer pricing factors
&bull Automatically generate customer-specific labels which include not only customer logos and barcodes, but also the retail customer's price to the consumer.
