CPQ in the food and drink industry

Guaranteeing our provision with basic supplies, the food and drink industry is one of the most important industries in our country. Before goods can end up in the shopping carts of customers, they must be made available in retail. This can be a huge challenge for producers. A flexible and reliable calculation is key to achieve this goal and ensure competitiveness. With our CPQ software calcIT, you can calculate your products reliably and transparently and uncover potential for the improvement of margins.

The food and drink industry not only needs to meet the demands of customers and companies and produce sustainable products at attractive prices, but currently also experiences changes in the buying habits of consumers caused by the Covid crisis. Since this can alter buying conditions, companies in the industry need to adjust their calculations. calcIT provides them with an opportunity to tailor their calculations to current developments and avoid potential for errors.

Customisable calculation schemes

Since the prices of primary materials change frequently, calculations in the food and drink industry require the opportunity to make adjustments at any time. With calcIT, you can not only incorporate price changes into your calculations, but also cash and quantity discounts granted by your suppliers – simply add these to your master data. Moreover, you can add delivery costs and cost prices to your calculations, as well as profit margins defined by you. Thanks to calcIT’s flexible structure, we can illustrate your specific processes and tailor them to your requirements.

Analysis of cost structures

Thanks to comprehensive analysis and simulation functions, you can generate future sales figures and relevant key figures with calcIT. Based on this, you can judge the profitability of your products and deduce the quantities you will need to purchase from your suppliers. Additionally, calcIT gives you the opportunity to analyse cost structures on all levels of your calculations, enabling you to make substantiated make-or-buy decisions. All information influencing these decisions can be added to individually configurable Excel reports and processed further.

Fast creation of reliable offers

Acceptance into retail often poses a huge challenge to producers in the food and drink industry. Customers demand sustainable production at low prices and gaining an advantage over competitors also depends largely on price. With calcIT, you can rapidly and simply create reliable offers and release them as Word or PDF file. Our CPQ solution uses text modules predefined by you, which can be altered as needed. This way, you can formulate different text modules and prices for different countries and regions and observe the respective legal provisions.
