Food and beverage manufacturing employees are often stuck with antiquated tools to collect, track and manage data. Even as brand acquisitions add complexity, business disruptions demand flexibility and federal regulations require rigorous compliance, companies still rely on pen and paper processes or error-prone spreadsheets to manage critical business workflows. Requiring employees to search for data they need trapped in complicated, tough-to-access software.
Modernization in cloud technology, such as citizen development, securely liberates data from corporate systems, like SAP or Salesforce. It eliminates the use of static, multi-tab spreadsheets hungry for agility and automation.
Endorsed by IT and digital transformation teams, citizen development platforms get the right data in people’s hands. The user-friendly software enables each person to build workflows, reports or dashboards from data stored in core systems. This solves hundreds of front-line business problems with flexible solutions built by people closest to the work, in hours or days
