Especially in the food industry a good materials resource planning is valuable. This is where you earn or lose money. It’s important to strike a balance between economical
purchasing of larger quantities and the risk of an expiring inventory.
COCOS offers a very clear and easy to understand materials resource planner that shows you per item as a colored bar on a time line when an item will get low on stock and needs to be reordered or produced. You’ll see at a glance all important data such as current stock position, average sales or usage, etc.
COCOS enables you to reorder straight from your MRP screen with just a few clicks. For goods that you produce yourself you can just as easily create a production order.
When customer orders come in at all hours of the day and these need to be produced
fresh within 12-24 hours, then a comprehensive overview and a good organization
is a requirement.
The tabular overview in the COCOS JIT production planning is a valuable tool to help you with this. With a few clicks quantities can be increased when new orders come in, or reduced when orders get cancelled.
For the production crew, the work orders are printed with barcode so that with
one scan and without any typing, the order appears on the screen of their mobile computer, complete with a complete list of all ingredients and their quantities that need to be picked. These lists are easy to understand,
completed picks are color coded to indicate that they’re done. Your production crew sees at a glance what still needs to be done. Even under the most hectic conditions, nothing will get
A GS1-128 barcode contains besides the item identification also additional information such as batch identification, unit and expiry date.

This barcode makes it not just quick and easy to identify the product, it also eliminates errors.

Many corporate clients and retail chains will only accept deliveries from suppliers with a proper batch tracking system and require GS1-128 labeling of all deliveries. Under pressure of consumer groups this trend will only get stronger and so will the certification requirements.

you will attract more and bigger customers.
Processing claims and complaints is often looked at as something negative, something we’d rather forget. But in fact it is a constantly growing source of valuable information about quality of your service.
Therefore we say; take advantage of this valuable information to improve and streamline your organization. A consistent entry and classification of all claims and complaints helps you to find your weaknesses and improve them. COCOS allows you to register these fast and easy and will take care of all the necessary cross links automatically.
COCOS will provide you with detailed information about the number of complaints per customer, per product, per employee, etc. and shows if the numbers are improving or deteriorating over time.

And COCOS can take care of the resulting processes (warehouse transactions, credit notes, etc.). You decide whether or not you accept the complaint, but when you do, COCOS will take care of everything that results from this complaint, through rules that are clearly defined and exactly comply with your corporate policies.
