Manage production, your way.
Wherefour’s work order-driven production module makes it easy to customize your production flow to what meets your needs. From consistent, daily production to production needs that are driven by your daily customer orders, we’ve got you covered.
Plus, Wherefour’s COGS tracking means that your true production unit costs are always just a click away.
Team effort. Yay!
As your business grows, it becomes even more critical to pass production knowledge to your team, and start organizing that knowledge in a system everyone can use and understand.
With Wherefour, your team is able to see the status of each work order and pull inventory and enter (or adjust) results as needed. Our “auto results” button lets them save some time by pre-filling the results of a batch, automatically.
With Wherefour’s ERP platform in place, your business and production data is in one place, so that knowledge doesn’t walk out the door in the event of team changes.
The business data and KPIs you need.
Quickly generate detailed cost reports for your production runs with breakdowns for raw materials and labor used and work in progress of finished goods created. See what your inventory levels were in the past at a specific date and time. With our complete set of reporting tools, you keep an eagle eye on the health of your business and whether product costs are in line with expectations.
Keep your master recipes and formulas in a safe place.
Wherefour can handle production using both process manufacturing (recipes and formulas) and discrete manufacturing (assemblies) procedures. You can design a completely custom and flexible production process that works the way you want to produce your products.
Because the final yield of each production run is a big factor in the true cost of your products, Wherefour tracks the final yield (and any scrapped amounts) of each run and automatically factors it into all cost calculations. You can also apply activity-based labor costs to each recipe.
With grouped formulas, you can even create complex, multi-step production processes that model the same way you produce your products in the real world. At each stage of production, Wherefour will let you create new inventory, use inventory created in other runs, and product whatever finished goods you need. All lot and cost tracked, of course!
To keep your proprietary recipes and formulas confidential, Wherefour’s easy-to-use roles and permissions feature allows you to lock out (or grant access) to specific users for any section of your account.
Have your recipes or formulas in a spreadsheet now? No problem – just import your files into Wherefour for a quick way to get started.
Our "just for food, beverage and natural products" software helps your growing company deal with lot tracking, inventory control, ingredient traceability and production costing so you can focus on managing the rest of your business.
