Customized for special needs
Many food industry segments have unique business requirements. Historically, these companies have been forced to go without systems, write custom programs or extensively modify a standard product. FE research turned up a number of highly focused vendors. Some suppliers provide systems that add-on or enhance ERP or Supply Chain systems while others offer stand-alone solutions. With their tight focus, these companies are typically smaller but the benefits of in-depth knowledge and products may make them just the right solution for some companies.
