A new software package for food and beverage producers incorporates
the ability to manage suppliers, pricing and payments along the
supply chain.

Oracle today announced a new release of its JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software, called version 8.12. The release includes new modules and features specifically targeted for the food and beverage market.

The package of pre-integrated software, hardware and services enables food and beverage producers to automate business processes and gain more access to operating information.

The module helps automate the process of obtaining and awarding bids after a request for proposal (RFP) or request for information (RFI) is issued.

The three new modules -- JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Blend Management, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Grower Management and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Grower Pricing and Payments -- were designed to help the industry to manage processes and the manufacturing of blended products.

Oracle worked with CIBER, a systems integrator for the food and beverage industry, on product requirements and functional specifications for the new modules.

The company also worked with beverage company, Foster's Group, since design and development began with JD Edwards.

"Once fully implemented, the three new modules should deliver to Foster's the ability to integrate wine production from grapevine to bottle in a single ERP environment,"​ said Foster's CIO, Ian Farnsworth.

The modules integrate with all the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne supply management software. The addition of operational sourcing functionality means companies can efficiently manage all phases of the supplier lifecycle, from critical sourcing decisions to supplier payments, Oracle claimed.

The company's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Human Capital Management software now includes employee scheduling, and time and labour and self-service applications.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Supply Chain Management adds transportation shipment sequencing, which allows equipment suppliers to deliver to manufacturing production lines in the exact sequence in which the parts are required.

The 8.12 release adopts the standards-based XML format for application specifications -- also referred to as metadata -- with key processes such as package builds and deployment simplified, the company stated.
