Distribution allows multiple delivery cycles per week, with different delivery days, routes, order closing times, and customers.
The network gets information on what's available from producers. Either the producers themselves, or the network administrators enter the information in the software's distributed inventory system.
Distributed or networked inventory is different from the usual inventory systems. It means that the network keeps track of inventory in many places that it does not hold or own. It could be on the farms, at processors, at distribution warehouses, or delivered to customers.
The software tracks and manages food processing of one or many steps. For example, slaughter and cut beef, or cull, grade, slice and freeze vegetables. It will track processed meat back to the source animal.
The software allows customers to place their own orders, or the network administration to enter orders from customers over the phone or via email.
The software allows customers to view and pay their invoices online, or the administrators can email or print and mail invoices to the customers.
The software figures out how much money is due from customers and how much money is due to producers, processors and distributors.
The software handles pre-season planning, including production planning for producers and processors, demand planning for customers, supply and demand balancing, and planned income for the network as well as for each producer.
