Agribusiness

As customers become more interested in provenance and sustainability, environmental factors fluctuate demand, and multi-site production grows - How does the agribusiness sector keep growing value?

As data sources grow, so does the complexity in many businesses to manage it all.

Whether you're a grower, supplier, stockist or buyer, have you noticed:

  • Lack of integration between finance and operations
  • Desire to control quality standards on a large scale
  • A need to be onsite to complete certain tasks
  • Dead-ends in systems that require manual input to complete
  • Disconnect in your supply chain causing poor demand forecasting
  • High levels of working capital tied up in inventory
  • Excessive storage costs
  • Need to streamline team processes and decrease difference
  • Inability to handle an increased or more diverse stock line

Then you're buried in data that isn't working for you. Moving to the Cloud, or retiring your legacy accounting software for an ERP is what you need. Just because you've always done something one way, doesn't mean it's best for your business going forward. Watch how Cropmark make the change to NetSuite...

 

"Now we’ve got the capacity to look at value-added tasks like producing more in-depth analysis around what product gets sold to whom, and evaluating our pricing and how effective our advertising campaigns are."

Scott Razga, Project Manager SEA HARVEST

"The dashboards and KPIs are very popular - people go in and follow our progress all the time."

PAUL MCKENZIE, FINANCIAL CONTROLLER CROPMARK

Keep quality consistent

Assuring quality protects your brand in a competitive market, but it takes continuous assessment from each stage of production to the point of distribution. With NetSuite, Cropmark were able to roll out this level of monitoring for their existing range and a new range adding over 500 lines of inventory. Quality Management within NetSuite allows for the creation of rules and testing routines for various line items, a user can also define the test required and the pass-rate required for a positive result.

And this level of quality assurance is not limited in NetSuite to inventory, but also extends to asset management. Asset maintenance workflows ensure a longer shelf life for your business assets, by proactively notifying users of any maintenance required in a custom workflow set from the point of purchase. Have contractors servicing your machinery – or do you perform this for others? Not a problem, this is also an option.

When you integrate quality management, advanced inventory and finance management in NetSuite Cloud ERP, you can then assess and forecast strategically. Have a look at some of our customer's stories below to see how we've made their business grow value.

Analyse and forecast strategically

Enabling your supply chain with NetSuite’s cloud native technology differs from simply performing the status quo faster and at lower cost than before. Once a supply chain is connected in NetSuite, its operating in the cloud and you can use this consolidated view to gain a far more complete picture of how your customers behave, where and when stock moves, and the potential points of weakness in your operations.

For our customers NetSuite has already:

  • Reduced the manual hours of data collection and transfer
  • Created lean warehouses with minimal stock-outs
  • Created tighter mission statement and KPI reporting
  • Connected finance with operations and project ROI across the business in real-time
  • Allowed them to anticipate space required, stock required, land space required
  • Converted forecasts to orders, orders to shipments, and shipments to revenue with unprecedented efficiency
  • Enhanced their warehouse order fulfillment, packing and shipping processes

With added efficiency and insights gained you can focus on maximising customer relationships and product quality.

“Before, I had to manually combine information from all these disparate, non-integrated systems to generate a complete report. It was the bane of my existence,”

"It saves our sales, trading and accounts team a lot of time by streamlining four steps down to one, and the feedback from the corporate division has been great."
