Meat Software Built for Meat Business.
Not All Protein Processing and Distribution Software is Created Equal.
Provisions, from CAI Software, has been enhanced over the past 20 years to help some of the most well-respected and successful protein processing and distribution businesses improve accuracy and efficiency and lower their costs.
Here’s just a few of the ways Provisions can help you:
- Best-in-class inventory control and warehouse management
- Real-time costing for better pricing strategies and higher margins
- Remote 24/7 access for your customers and mobile sales team
- Maximize customer service with electronic document management
- Speed order processing and minimize delivery disputes
Best-in-Class Inventory Control
Improve the efficiency of picking, packing and all aspects of your inventory control and get real-time information on each item in the production cycle or in your warehouse or freezer. Track product from the receipt of raw materials to the shipment of finished goods using barcoded labeling to gain tighter control of stock levels and locations, and always have product on-hand to fill anticipated orders and keep excess stock to a minimum.
Real-time Costing of Yielded Product for Better Pricing
Margins are under constant pressure, and with almost 75% of the cost of the final product derived from the raw material, it’s critical to monitor actual yield against the expected yield to make better pricing decisions. Provisions monitors yield, in real-time for individual processing lines so you can react quickly should the actual yield deviate.
By registering the weights of each bin going into a batch or process, and recording the actual weights of outgoing containers, you can pinpoint the exact yield of that process. Quickly re-price products by applying standard and actual costs to bill of materials, and easily factor in labor, packaging, overhead and other costs so you can maximize margins on every transaction.
Remote 24/7 Access for Customers and Your Sales Team
Drive more online orders, reduce errors and give your customers what they want—an easier, more convenient way to order from you. Streamlines sales with 24/7 online ordering that lets your restaurant and retail buyers, and your mobile sales team, place orders anytime, anywhere.
A secure, fully branded website lets your customers search your online product catalog and current promotions, view their individual order history, build a cart, place orders and schedule delivery dates with a single click.
Maximize Service with Electronic Document Management
Manage records electronically and improve the accuracy and quality of customer service by giving your team instant access to customer statements, purchase orders, acknowledgements, delivery receipts and more.
Provisions’ Electronic Document Management solution instantly stores images of documents and links them to related transactions. Documents can be quickly accessed at any time, from anywhere, indefinitely, and on an enterprise-wide basis. You can link vendor quotes and invoices to non-stock P.O.s, packing slips to AP receipts, signed delivery receipts to customer invoices, a customer emails to a statement, etc.
Already have a Document Management system in place? We’ll convert data from any Document Management system — eliminating the need and expense of maintaining a separate server to access old data.
Speed Order Processing and Minimize Customer Disputes with E-Signatures
Speed order processing, save your Accounting Department significant time issuing credit memos, and minimize delivery disputes with Electronic Signature Capture for customer deliveries.
Customers simply sign the delivery receipt via the driver’s tablet or smart phone for immediate proof of delivery. The driver can take photos and make job site notes which are automatically attached and archived, with the signature, to the customer’s order and can be emailed on-demand.
