JustFoodERP Customers Among Attendees at Chicago Food Industry Forum on February 22nd

Online PR News – 22-February-2011 – – The Food Industry Forum being held in Chicago on February 22nd will address real issues facing food companies and should be attended by existing JustFoodERP customers, and any peers in the food industry that are looking to get a handle on the following food safety related challenges:
-Potential impact of documentation changes
-Potential impact on staff retention
-Potential impact on business systems

Following food safety-related buzz in the media these days, the demands on food companies for proper record keeping are only going to increase. And learning how the Food Safety Modernization Act will affect food businesses is imperative. Chatting with peers to see how they are preparing for the imminent retirement of baby-boomer owners and employees are among the reasons JustFoodERP is conducting the Food Industry Forum on February 22nd in Chicago.

Most of the record keeping challenges for food companies relate to inventory. Whether processing and/or distributing food, having best practices for inventory can only increase its visibility, a key component in keeping track of where it came from and then where it went. Attendees will also see the latest JustFoodERP functionality for scanning and quality audits using smart phones. The forum will give food company executives a venue to learn how these and other real challenges can be dealt with the right combination of best practices and technology.

This event will ultimately influence the JustFoodERP User Event track in May taking place in Toronto. The technology leader wants to make sure they select vital guest speakers and create training sessions that truly address food company challenges. Because JustFoodERP is in the business of selling software for food companies, the management believes that the more they listen to customers and peers, the faster they will address client needs.
