San Antonio, TX. — December 8, 2021 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American food and beverage industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Aptean with the 2022 North American Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software for Food and Beverage (F&B) Product Leadership Award for designing tailored solutions for specific industry subsegments and increasing business value. Aptean provides high-quality services that address unique production, manufacturing, distribution, and operational challenges in particular segments of the F&B industry, such as bakery, fresh produce and meat items.
Global companies in the F&B industry require purpose-built software to address their concrete customer demands. Aptean’s unrivaled industry-specific solutions meet businesses’ unique needs with a high level of customization and scalability. The company’s ERP solution delivers the expected capabilities of F&B software and integrates with other advanced, highly differentiated Aptean products, such as enterprise asset management, product lifecycle management, transport management systems, and overall equipment effectiveness.
“Frost & Sullivan applauds Aptean for providing a full enterprise suite specific to the food and beverage industry through this unique combination of its ERP, business application add-ons, and business solutions,” said Sankara Narayanan, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “The F&B industry needs a unified, industry-specific ERP software solution and specialized tools to maximize profits and productivity and deliver the highest quality products. Aptean’s software solution successfully addresses this need.”
Aptean promotes its solution as a viable alternative to the one-size-fits-all software in the F&B industry that does not tackle the specific pain points of the multiple subsegments in this industry. For customers, tailored solutions boost productivity and efficiency, and Aptean deeply understands the needs of each F&B subsegment, providing clear and actionable insights into the newest trends on the market to increase profits and achieve higher customer engagement and shorter time to market.
Aptean’s leadership in the F&B industry comes from its focus on building strong partnerships with customers, unrivaled support, knowledgeable managerial team, and first-class performance.
“Aptean’s competitors have horizontal products and use direct sales or work with partners or value-added resellers (VARs) to get their products into a vertical. Although it may seem as though all vendors check the same boxes, such as trade and supply chain management and PLM, Aptean provides deep industry-specific functionality that is different from its competitors’ offerings,” noted Sankara Narayanan. “It also provides a full ecosystem such as business application add-ons and solutions specific to the F&B industry and addresses the end-to-end business processes for numerous F&B subsegments.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality that is gaining rapid market acceptance. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
