Food and Beverage

Run smart and autonomous manufacturing processes, supply chain management, and other critical processes that can dynamically adapt to trends and changing demands of consumers.

Industry Trends

Food organizations are pursuing new revenue streams, distribution networks, and methods of getting their products into their buyers’ hands and need technology that can keep up.

  1. Industry 4.0 Technologies
    Food and beverage manufacturers are moving toward smarter operations. It increases supply chain and manufacturing efficiencies. Sensors that gather data on machine performance are now utilized, then analyzed through cloud-based software programs. Other analytical programs can more accurately assess shelf life and product traceability.

  2. Omnichannel Shopping
    The shift to online and omnichannel shopping for food and beverage customers is here to stay. The industry needs to provide its own seamless omnichannel experiences to consumers by investing in e-commerce, data management, marketing, and omnichannel fulfillment solutions now.

  3. Supply Chain Disruption
    Forecasting demand and planning supply are trickier than ever
    before. Reduced availability of some types of produce, rising costs, disruptions, and labor shortages in supply chains remain. Modernizing the supply chain through IoT sensors, blockchain, integrated data, real-time analytics, and open partner networks can help solve these problems.
