Food and Beverage ERP or PLM: What is the best technology investment to future-proof your business?


The food and beverage industry is no stranger to competing demands when it comes to capital investment in technology.

Many have traditionally made a business case for investing in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems for handling the finished-product related transactions. Others are discovering and investing in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) to optimize the strategic and operational elements driving product innovation and to fully leverage product portfolios.

But what is the difference between ERP and PLM? How do these technologies work together? Does each drive business agility, cost optimization and competitive advantage? How do they get you closer to consumers?

Centric Software®, world leader in PLM for consumer goods, created a guide to technology investment for food and beverage retailers and producers. Compare ERP and PLM and learn about the benefits and impact of each on the product offer, innovation, compliance and safety and product margins so you can make the smartest investment decision for your business.
