LONG BEACH, CA, September 23, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Innovative Consulting Services, Inc., a Sage reseller and development partner, is proud to announce the release of Crescent Food Management software for Sage 100 ERP. This is a solution that will open the Sage 100 ERP door to food based companies for the first time. Previously, companies in food-related businesses wanting to implement Sage 100 ERP had to choose between either another ERP software or running their operations outside of Sage ERP. As a result Sage resellers have had to turn away food-related customers, such as Grower/Packers, Manufacturer/Processors, and Distributors. ICS saw this need back in 1995 with the company's first Food Distribution client. Through ICS, Sage was enhanced to provide food-industry functionality such as Catch-weight Shipping and Receiving, Picking by Route, Fuel Surcharge, and other features. As time went on, the company has continued to enhance its software to cater to each new client within the industry. After 20 years of innovation ICS has finally packaged this solution and made it available to Sage 100 ERP resellers and end users.
Sage Software, Inc. is the leader in the Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning software industry its products are highly-regarded in terms of their capabilities. In order to expand those product capabilities into specific industries, Sage has licensed partners, such as ICS, to develop solutions to cater to those industries' needs. Over the last ten years the food management businesses have become more complex, creating need for a higher level of functionality from their business management software. Sage ERP 100 fits this need. However, Sage's lack of an integrated Food Management software proved to be a significant deficiency for small to mid-size businesses.
ICS's owner, Gary Willett, talks about this need and how their new solution fits right in: "The need for integrated functionality in the Sage 100 market was what really drove the development of the Crescent Food Management solution." Crescent software provides industry-specific features, that a food based company would be looking for. Such features include Grower Accounting, Lot Tracking, Pack-Out-Reporting, Catch Weight Shipping and Receiving, Batch Manufacturing and much more. Mr. Willett continues, "As the FDA becomes more stringent with regulations like Field-to-Fork Traceability, it is becoming increasingly more important for food based companies to have a strong ERP solution to track and manage inventory through this type of a solution." Crescent is tailored with features specific to the Growers, Packer/Shippers, Manufacturers, Processors, and Distributors that will enable these companies to streamline operations from receiving all the way to shipping.
