American Specialty Oil Company selected the BatchMaster ERP for Food solution to meet the growing consumer demand for organic, non-GMO and non-trans-fat oils. BatchMaster ERP is an end to end ERP solution, based upon the SAP Business One platform, that supports financials, sales, purchasing, supply chain and customer service, in addition to food manufacturing.
For over 50 years, American Specialty Oil has been a private label and contract manufacturer of a diverse lineup of distinctive edible oil products for restaurants, pizzerias, bakeries, and large food industry clients. One of the company’s strengths is developing and delivering customer specific formulated products, and management recognized that their current business system could not support the growing volume of custom order specifications. In addition, the ability to continue to perform accurate and timely lot traceability searches and recalls was being tested as the company grew.
With dynamic formulation and version control features, ingredient weights and volumes can automatically be adjusted to quickly meet customer specifications in terms of physical, nutritional and costing target values. BatchMaster ERP’s comprehensive lot management capabilities, mobile warehousing application and graphical traceability & recall tool, all work in unison to meet and exceed FDA regulatory mandates and BRC/SQF advanced food safety codes.
In terms of sustaining his company’s profitable growth, Anthony Galbo, President, states “BatchMaster ERP will enable us to better control raw material allocation and procurement, and increase inventory turns. And with improved formulation, we can reduce customer quotation times and meet more complex customer specifications, faster”.
