LINKFRESH Launches New Software Innovations for 2016
VENTURA, CA - LINKFRESH has announced the addition of several new software enhancements, introducing a host of features that include catch weight, case management, the incorporation of a global trade item number (GTIN), and enhancements to archiving. These new additions are compatible with the already popular LINKFRESH ERP on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Platform, and offer functionality across mobile platforms.
“The new improvements we are incorporating into our software will make a big difference for suppliers, allowing them to manage their supply processes more accurately and precisely whilst also gaining greater visibility across the supply chain process,” explained Robert Frost, CEO of LINKFRESH.
Frost shared that in the wake of recent controversies and with more and more questions coming up about how supply chain processes can be improved, LINKFRESH’s new improvements are needed now more than ever. Frost predicts that these innovations will help suppliers improve traceability and efficiency simultaneously, reducing the capacity for human error and ensuring that any supply side issues which do occur can be quickly traced to their source.
According to the company’s press release, the following is an overview of the new enhancements for LINKFRESH ERP:
A new catch weight capability allows operators to use ERP to measure their produce in both a base and secondary measure. For example, produce can be managed across the supply chain and invoiced in kilograms or pieces, creating both a primary and secondary invoice ledger and offers far greater versatility for suppliers.
Case management, an enhancement which allows for individual cases to be managed through LINKFRESH ERP software, will means that specific case alterations can be instructed through the software. For example, taking part of one existing case and adding it to another will enable LINKFRESH to offer a level of micro-management not possible under a simple pallet management system.
GTINs will allow for material in the supply chain to be allocated both an internal reference number and a universally recognized GTIN. This enhances the traceability of materials in the supply chain by giving them a unique reference number, and can be quickly and easily recognized by primary manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers. Adopting this allows LINKFRESH ERP to streamline workflow and improve communication in the supply chain between parties, improving transparency at every stage of the supply chain.
The new archiving capability introduced into the latest LINKFRESH software allows for a cleaner, less cluttered approach to supply chain management, removing unneeded information from view quickly and easily.
