FoodLogiQ's Grower Relationship Managementa" Now a Qualified SAP Business All-in-One Partner Solution

Durham, NC, Dec 18, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- FoodLogiQ, the leading cloud-based, on-demand SaaS provider to the food industry, announced today that its Grower Relationship Managementa" (GRM) solution is now a qualified SAP(R) Business All-in-One partner solution. GRMa" combines the power of SAP(R) with on-farm software allowing food companies to view and interact with their supply chain operations all the way from the grower to the retail consumer.


According to Steve Rosenstock, Managing Partner of Clarkston Consulting's Consumer Products practice, "Our food and beverage industry clients are seeking new and innovative ways to integrate their supply chains for agricultural procurement to reduce commodity costs, improve sustainability outcomes and enable full traceability of their products." GRMa" now closes the gap and easily fits into their SAP(R) ecosystem where they have made significant investments.

An off-the-shelf SaaS solution, GRMa" enables CPG companies to manage raw agricultural ingredient procurement and grower contracts using the same SAP(R) capabilities used to source other ingredients and raw materials. With GRMa", companies can reduce process costs by automating procurement processes and leveraging workflow as well as improve contract grower relationships by facilitating electronic transactions and collaboration. The plug-in nature of GRMa" with SAP(R) also increases a company's return on investment of their existing SAP(R) solutions.

With GRMa", food companies can effectively manage: Contract management- Extract maximum value from contracts through better historical performance and delivery.

Analytics - Capture, consolidate, and present traceable sustainability data across the enterprise.

Strategic agricultural sourcing - Match demand planning using contract grower collaboration.
