Industry Best Practices Built In
For more than 20 years, we’ve been helping our clients work more efficiently and profitably. The Seasoft business management solution ties together information from all areas of your operation in a tightly integrated package that eliminates error-prone, redundant manual processes.
Here’s the latest software tools to help your business grow:
World-class Seafood Inventory Control
From the receipt of raw materials to the shipment of finished goods, Seasoft’s wireless Warehouse Management System (WMS) helps seafood businesses improve the efficiency of all aspects of inventory control. Hand-held ‘real time’ barcode scanners:
- capture product information at the dock;
- allow you to attach pallet labels;
- track the movement of materials within the warehouse;
- improve the efficiency of picking, packing and invoicing (at the same time);
- monitor the flow of product from production floor to shipment verification.
Seasoft slashes inventory costs by providing tighter control of stock levels. You can access up-to-the-minute quantity status and detailed information on each item in your inventory. Seasoft’s inventory replenishment capability always ensures that you have enough product on hand to fill anticipated orders, while keeping excess stock to a minimum. Average lead time, historical or seasonal-based sales, and number of days’ supply to stock can be used to dynamically set reorder points and preferred stock levels for each item.
Seasoft’s affordable traceability solution uses lot control with barcodes to track bins, containers and packages as they are received, moved through the manufacturing process and distribution chain. Barcodes can include detailed information related to method of production (M.O.P.) and production location, processing, pack weight and pack date, inspection, vendor information, lot numbers, PO, expiration date, country of origin and other information.
Seafood processors can assign barcodes and lot numbers to containers of finished goods as well as raw materials used in producing a batch of finished product. Bar codes can be scanned at a later date to drill down through production lots to the raw materials in the case of a recall. This saves considerable time and money on a recall by limiting it only to products affected by the specific problem or vendor material lot.
Keep Pace with Fast Moving Regulations
Changing seafood industry regulations can make compliance difficult. Our seafood clients have utilized the Seasoft to help them gain full regulatory compliance with many of the major industry standards, including MSC Chain of Custody Standard, Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and British Retail Consortium (BRC). Don’t suffer the consequences of non-compliance.
Maximize the Profitability of Every Delivery
Delivery costs continue to be an area where seafood distributors recognize real inefficiencies and lost profits. Seasoft’s business-ready Delivery and Dispatch module lets you maximize the profitability of every shipment. A real-time view of delivery resources helps dispatchers consolidate and manage delivery runs, increase margins on small orders and make more informed delivery-related decisions.
Remote Access for Today’s Mobile Sales Force
Today, more than ever, seafood sales professionals need remote access to information that lets them sell in the office, at the client’s site, or anywhere else business takes them. Seasoft lets you remotely place orders, confirm product availability and check order status. In addition, Seasoft’s Mobile Sales Desk smartphone application provides customer contact information, product information, on-hand inventory counts, promotions, month-to-date sales and gross profit for each customer.
Web-based Customer Portal
Seasoft’s web-based Customer Portal is a complete B2B e-commerce and customer support solution that helps increase sales, improve service and manage transactions with customers more efficiently. Compatible with any web browser, the portal includes a secure Quote & Sales Order Entry module that allows customers to place orders 24/7. The portal also includes a ‘My Account’ Customer Self-Service module that lets customers access order history, check order status, and view their account statement anytime.
On-demand Business Intelligence (BI)
Seasoft’s intuitive point-and-click business intelligence tool makes it easier to access your business data, visualize it in easy-to-read graphs and charts, and analyze it to make new discoveries. You can quickly analyze sales, inventory, vendor, A/R and GL activity and more. With Seasoft, you can explore data from all sources and, unlike other solutions, everyone—sales, production, back office and dispatchers—can access the information they need to make better decisions.
Flexible Deployment Options (SaaS & PaaS)
Seasoft can be installed and accessed on your in-house server or installed in our Cloud-based data center and offered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Your Seasoft server is housed in a highly secure, carefully monitored, controlled environment with backup systems for every function. The SaaS model provides a planned, predictable, and budgeted operational expense.
Alternatively, you can move your entire computer network and servers to the Cloud. Seasoft’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering can reduce your IT infrastructure costs, increase the security of your data and maximize availability. Your team can work and access the software from anywhere and there is no more worrying about power outages, hardware failures, offsite backup, and warranty maintenance fees. The only real responsibility you have is getting on the Internet.
