E-commerce is taking off in a lot of industries, and the number of organizations offering products online is growing fast. The Food & Beverage industry is one of industries trailing behind.
Getting started with e-commerce can be a challenge for companies in the Food & Beverage industry, primarily because of certain product characteristics. These characteristics mean Food & Beverage manufacturers and distributors face these obstacles:
- Perishable goods
- Inventory management and delivery
- Efficiently processing recurring orders
- Packaging options
It can be easier to work with this data if it is stored properly, in an ERP system for instance. When companies use an e-commerce solution that integrates with the ERP, orders can be processed more efficiently.
