Integrated Software Solutions for Food and Beverage Operations

Experience with Proven Solutions:

For more than twenty-two years now, ASC has been partnering with food manufacturers and distributors to track and ship products throughout their enterprise and trading partner network. Some of the largest companies in the world trust ASC for these complicated distribution tasks. Food companies like General Mills, Dean Foods, ConAgra Foods, V and V Supremo Foods, Nealanders International, Prairie Farms, and others depend upon ASC solutions to empower their supply chain.

ASC solutions have been proven in the field when customers demand reliable performance for multi-shift, multi-plant enterprises in tough to track environments. Our solutions have been used in the food and beverage industry for items such as: milk, Coca-Cola®, beer, dry foods, food components and ingredients, dairy products such as cheese and ice cream, meats, cake mixes, and many others. Other similar industries are: medical products, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceutical, as well as third party logistics groups (3PLs) for co-packers and food-pharma grade warehouses.

More Information:

ASC includes variance costing for manufacturing as food manufacturing processes may be "process based manufacturing." This is where lean manufacturing and costing is a great benefit, and our lean costing process is seamless all the way to the financial system.

ASCTrac® is designed for users who need to instantly handle any product recalls throughout their supply chain. Since we focus on true food-grade lot tracking in all of our applications, we exceed all FDA mandates.

In 2005, Microsoft® allied with ASC for a Food and Beverage solution for its own customers. After much investigation, the ASCTrac® WMS solution was chosen by Microsoft® as one of the best WMS solutions for the food and beverage industry and was included in the Microsoft® ISV solution stack. ASC has seamless connectivity to Microsoft® Dynamics® financial products.

Food Banks:

Another food specific industry that ASC supports is "not for profit" food banks. Food banks depend on quality tracked goods to insure quality food items for consumption, and we take special pride in being able to provide solutions for this. Just like any other food distributor, food banks need lot tracking, expiration date controls, quality control processes, and multi-zone controls for frozen foods, cooler goods, dry goods, chemicals, allergens, "special shopping areas," etc. In addition, donations must be assessed for acceptance into your facility in a food-grade manner. If you are a "not for profit" organization, we offer special incentives and donations to assist you in handling your supply chain goods.(Read more.)

We encourage our food manufacturers and distributors to donate goods to food banks when you can... A little food goes a long way to a person in need. In turn, ASC donates goods and services to food banks to lend a helping hand (Read more.)
