Software technology has opened the doors to numerous opportunities. From automating to compiling and reporting, a good software platform can help your company run more efficiently.
Software can also make it possible to be at two places at once (talk about efficiency!). Thanks to webcast software, you can work at your desk and sit in on an educational webinar for the low, low price of free.
It just so happens, Food Processing is participating in two webinars in April that we think you, our readers, will find extremely educational:
Better Cost Control with Better Business Intelligence: Leaving Money on the Table?
Date and Time: April 9/2 p.m. EST/1 p.m. CST
In food processing, data comes from a variety of sources within the supply chain. And international distribution is even more complex.
No matter which department you're in, as a food and beverage processor, you may have found yourself asking the following questions:
- Are my declining profits due to reduced revenue or increasing costs?
- Is our customer loyalty declining because of poor product quality, or poor customer loyalty initiatives?
- Are revenues declining because of insufficient marketing activity, or low sales closure rates?
In this 30-minute webcast, learn how to achieve better cost control with better business intelligence. Junction Solutions' George Casey will talk with Food Processing's own business intelligence expert to talk about what data should be looked at and how leading food companies are using data and analytics to grow their businesses.
