Software Integrations For Bakeries

Advanced Add-on Features

  • Custom Cake Orders

  • If you offer custom cake orders, this add-on feature is designed for you. Each cake type can have multiple option categories associated, such as Filling, Decorations, Flavors, Messages, and more. Each category can have options associated, so flavors may be chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, raspberry, and more. Best of all, your operators do not need to remember pricing for each option, as the program remembers and adjusts the price accordingly! Choose the delivery date or if the cake will be picked up.All custom cake orders are then sent to your production team instantly with all the information they need to create the perfect cakes for your customers. All options selected in the sales order are matched to the specific type of cake (round, sheet, etc.) with the date it needs to be ready printed right on the order information report.Custom cake orders are part of POMeSYS Sales Order Entry (Wholesale) and POMePOS Android based POS

  • Lot Tracking and Traceability

  • Lot tracking auses all three modules of POMeSYS (SO, AR, ICC) and has three distinct components:
    1. Users will have the ability to track where finished products, with certain lot numbers, end up, i.e. track customers to whom a specific product and a specific lot number was sold.
    2. It enables users to track where ingredients of a certain product and lot number originated, i.e. the vendor from whom the products, with their accompanying lot numbers, were purchased
    3. A finished item with a specific lot number can then be linked or related to its ingredients, which also have distinct lot number. If a vendor were to place a recall on an ingredient or ingredients used to make a finished product, this functionality will enable users to locate and identify the customers who received products made of the recalled ingredient(s), quickly and efficiently. Users can also alert vendors of possible problems with an ingredient, based on customer complaints regarding a finished product.

    With the power of lot tracking, you can quickly act to ensure that public health is taken into consideration, along with understanding how certain vendors affect your products. Lot tracking is an important feature for bakeries.

  • Nutritional Analysis and Allergen Labeling

  • This web-based nutritional analysis software application allows users to print appropriate labels according to industry standards. It is an integral part of the library of POMeSYS-Host (MOB-Host). It requires the use of Inventory Control and Costing (MOB-ICC), Accounts Receivable (MOB-AR), and Purchase Orders (MOB-PO) modules.Ingredients of completed and uncompleted goods are defined and maintained in the MOB-ICC module. This advanced feature maintains a database of ingredients with all of the nutritional values as defined and provided by the USDA. The User relates each ingredient used in the recipe to an equivalent ingredient in the USDA database. With this information, this add-on calculates the nutritional fact of each product. The user can then view the results, export it to a spreadsheet, or print a label.With the rise of dietary allergy and conscious ingredient checking, consumers, more than ever, want to know what is in the products they consume and how that affects them. With software from TwinPeaks Online, you can easily let them know exactly how wonderful your products are.

  • Manage Inventory in Multiple Warehouses

  • As part of our bakery inventory control module, this add-on program allows maintaining products in multiple warehouses. Instead of just informing user of the available of number of a certain product in stock, POMeSYS will also inform the user where that stock is, and if it is split among several warehouse. For example, if you have 500 frozen breads, 321 could be in warehouse 1, 93 in warehouse 2, and 86 in warehouse 3. By its nature, the functionality touches upon many aspects of inventory movement. The sale, purchase, wastage, returns, and of course inter-warehouse transfers, all affect physical movement of inventory products and are tracked through this powerful add-on.To best utilize this add-on, the Inventory Costing and Control module is required, part of POMeSYS-Host.

Software Integrations for Bakeries

  • POMeCRM: Customer Relationship Manager

  • POMeSYS supports links to customer relationship management (CRM) software. TwinPeaks currently links with Zoho CRM. If you use another CRM, please let our team know and we will work with you to build a link.CRM seeks to attain the following objectives:
    1. Sales division automation: CRM is used to facilitate and streamline the sales process. The core of the operation is contact for tracking and recording every stage in the sales process for each prospective client, from initial contact to final disposition. Applications also include insights into opportunities, territories, sales forecasts and workflow automation.
    2. Marketing: CRM is used for initiating, tracking, and measuring the success of marketing campaigns over multiple channels, such as: email, search, social media, telephone, and direct mail.
    3. Customer service and support: CRM is used to create, assign and manage requests made by customers in order to direct customers to agents. The CRM system can also identify and reward loyal customers.
    4. Appointments: CRM provides suitable appointment times to customers via e-mail or the web.

  • Automating Payments By CC

  • Accept Automatic Payments by Credit Card

    This add-on allows users to automate the acceptance of automatic payments via credit card for customers who prefer that type of payment (instead of sending checks or money transfers). This enhancement only affects the Accounts Receivable module. Customers in the system are first designated as CC payers. As the process is initiated by the user, the program automatically scans the customer database for such customers. Once located, the balance owed is calculated, and then using a payment processor (like Authorize.net), the program initiates money transfers, much like when using a CC processing terminal. As soon it receives approval, makes a payment entry, applied to each invoice owed.

    This process can be run on an individual level or automated for all customers that wish to pay by credit card.

  • Electronic Data Interchange(EDI)

Electronic Data Interchange

EDI is the electronic interchange of business information using a standardized format. In other words, EDI is a process which allows one company to send information to another company electronically rather than on paper or via email. Companies that conduct business electronically are called trading partners. The exchange of data is usually facilitated by an intermediary company, a ‘clearing’ house that ‘hosts’ the exchange and charges one or both trading partners certain fees to make the process possible.

Many business documents can be exchanged using electronic data interchange. But, the three most common ones are purchase orders, confirmations of received orders and invoices. At a minimum, EDI replaces the manual preparation and handling associated with traditional business communication. However, the real power of EDI is that it standardizes information communicated in business documents. That makes “paperless” exchange possible.

Most bakeries that use POMeSYS create invoices, print paper copies of those invoices, and mail them to their customers. Upon receipt, those customers re-enter them into their own computer systems for payment and/or inventory management. The entire process is nothing more than the transfer of information from the seller’s computer to the customer’s computer. EDI makes it possible to minimize or even eliminate the manual steps involved in this transfer.

A typical sequence of events would be as follows: A POMeSYS and EDI add-on user accesses the PO module and simply clicks on a menu item. That gets a process in motion. POMeSYS contacts the intermediary company seeking new Purchase Orders. If new orders are found, POMeSYS imports them and automatically enters them into the system. A confirmation is automatically sent to the customer. Finally, when the goods are shipped or delivered, POMeSYS creates the invoice and transfers to the customer without the need to print and then mail any document.

If you have any questions about the mechanics of using this enhancement and/or wish to speak to a customer who actually uses this functionality, please contact TwinPeaks Software staff. We will be glad to refer you to one.

  • Posting To Accounting Software

Export to Accounting Software

TwinPeaks Software does provide its customers Accounts Payable and General Ledger modules to accompany its Order Entry, Inventory Control, Costing and Production modules in order to have an integrated suite. However, some customers have preferences and set ideas for what accounting software package must be used. At times, their needs are so unique that only few packages are considered. All through the years, engineers at Twin Peaks have created bridges to other accounting software such as QuickBooks, ACCPAC, Peachtree, Solomon, MAS90, and few others. Posting to such packages often involves debiting and crediting to accounts or exporting summary invoice information or even detailed invoices, depending on the requirements of the customer.
