  • Management short-dated ingredients FIFO.
  • Ease of pulling past production material handling information.
  • Managing of inventory needs MRP.
  • More cross functionality with Factory MES.
  • Ease with material issue.
Inventory management for a fast paced company. Report writing for almost every area utilized with easy to access / drill down menus. Material handling on the production floor.

Ross ERP is the system or record for our company across all departments and product lines. We track financials, sales, production, and food traceability in Ross from the receipt of materials, through production planning, through customer shipments and invoicing.
  • Development: the facet that sold us on Ross was the interaction with the user community and the commitment to development with the users in mind. They are by far the most customer driven company I've worked with in terms of product improvement and development. Companies of all sizes are heard and they're suggestions coalesced into a development plan that delivers value for your maintenance dollars.
  • Lot Traceability: Ross ERP gives us a competitive edge in time for lot trace across multiple sku's and distribution lanes.
  • Process manufacturing management. Ross recipe and process spec management is very robust, allowing us to capture and manage our yields and costs across labor and numerous types of ingredient inputs. Process manufacturing can be more complex then discrete, and Ross was built for process manufacturing.
  • The user interface is under constant improvement, but its a difficult balance between flexibility and ease of use. They have made great strides in recent releases, but have room to grow.
  • Built in reporting and analytics. Again, they are making great improvements over the last several releases, but have room to keep improving.
Ross ERP was designed for and excels in process manufacturing environments. It is best leveraged in companies with strong management support for technology with a strong understanding of the business and manufacturing processes and a willingness to engage in the design and operation of the system. It is less suited for organizations looking for cut and paste solutions that don't' require input from the users and management. It is whatever you make of it.
