For growers, producers, manufacturers and distributors, gone are the days of “making do” with limited visibility into disconnected, cobbled-together systems.

Technically speaking, RSM delivers the best of both worlds
Leveraging their position as a nationally recognized Microsoft Dynamics Business Solution Partner and top-tier Microsoft Gold Partner, RSM is home to the largest Dynamics 365 practice in the United States and several of the most recognized Dynamics 365 developers from around the globe, some of whom played instrumental roles in the recent global launch of the thoroughly reimagined, cloud-first, Dynamics 365, as well as authored key functional areas that are now core offerings of the product. To such impressive technical credentials, RSM consultants also bring a commensurate level of industry-specific food and beverage knowledge in functional areas such as:
- Lot trace and safety
- Direct store delivery
- Mobile solutions (mAX sales)
- Blend optimizer
- Trade promotions management
- Producer payroll
- Grower accounting
- End-to-end dairy accounting
- CLEARthru for Consumer Mobile Traceability
Attempting to tackle these formidable challenges without the benefits of a robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) system from RSM could significantly hamper growth prospects.
Dynamics 365 delivers industry-specific solutions for industry-wide pain points
With business-critical concerns ranging from technologies that change at a moment’s notice, to expanding regulatory requirements, to increasing cost pressures, to demands from consumers, to how quickly goods can be brought to market—such complicated, interwoven challenges define this industry’s operational landscape, and include:
- Disparate, unconnected systems that provide little to no real-time visibility into data and offer little value
- Inability to cut costs to reach profitability goals or effectively offset the cost of increasing requirements
- Cost effective production and distribution of goods no longer a guarantee of growth, success or survival
- Increasingly diverse and distributed customers expect personalized service and experiences—on their terms
- Customer and business data increasingly driving the enterprise—and exponentially raising stakes for security
- Informed, connected customers with myriad choices, fueling expectations and demands around quality and service
- Realities of the global economy mean accommodating multilanguage, multicurrency, multisite capabilities
Yet these and related challenges are the very complexities a true industry-specific solution like Microsoft Dynamics 365 is built for, from the ground up. Adding food and beverage accelerators from RSM to enhance out-of-the-box functionality from day one, simplifies how businesses meet many standard industry-specific challenges.
Striking a balance to savor success, with Dynamics 365 as a competitive differentiator
As today’s food and beverage organizations strive to strike the perfect balance of competition and compliance, or of efficiency and personalization, applying the right technology solution has never been more critical.

- Smarter, leaner, more efficient operations, alongside necessary compliance measures
- Advances in automation as critical components of business transformation initiatives
- Integration and connection that drive visibility, innovation and sustainable growth, yet keep data and customers secure
- Leveraging of big data and business intelligence to drive actionable insights and smarter decision-making
