Columbus continues its commitment with the latest release of ColumbusFood ERP, its next generation business application for the food industry.

Minneapolis, MN ­­– March 18, 2019: Columbus, an IT service and consultancy with more than 2,000 employees worldwide, today announced the release of its next-generation ERP for the food industry, ColumbusFood. ColumbusFood brings a healthy solution, driving manufacturing and distribution excellence with intelligent business applications, that makes it easier for food companies to manage their operations with an industry-specific solution.

ColumbusFood, built with our customers and leveraging the Microsoft technology stack, provides end-to-end capabilities from production and processing to quality control and everything in between. Unlike other standard ERP solutions, ColumbusFood is designed exclusively for food companies with industry features—such as nutritional analysis, batch scheduling, the creation of co- and by-products, and forward and backward lot tracing. Users can also extend the solution with business tools—including demand and production planning, analytics, and quality compliance controls.

The solution’s intuitive planning tools assist users in creating the best alignment of demand, materials, supplies and production. By means of visual sequencing, users can set up batches for production on certain equipment, schedule packaging lines and add other tasks to help run their business at peak efficiency.

“Process and food manufacturers continue to desire a modern solution that has industry-specific functionality with an edge to meet the needs of today and respond to future requirements—all in one unified solution,” says Sandy Williams, VP of ColumbusFood. “Our dedication to the process and food industry is at the heart of the ColumbusFood and we are excited to bring this next generation solution to the market. With our team of technology experts and experienced consultants, we are not only dedicated to providing a world class solution, but dedicated to providing process excellence, risk mitigation and digital strategy to transform the businesses we work with."

ColumbusFood supports the digital enterprise with specialized capabilities that help food companies with operational control, production output and regulatory compliance — all while improving visibility of operations from sourcing to the end product.

Columbus combines industry expertise, implementation best practices and the technical acumen to help food companies transform and run a modern business. ColumbusFood is now generally available. To learn more, visit: https://www.columbusglobal.com/en-us/.
