Simfoni, the next-generation digital solutions provider for procurement intelligence, eSourcing, and tail spend management today announced it has been named a winner of Food Logistics’ 2022 Top Software & Technology Providers award, which honors software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain.
Simfoni’s working experience with Food & Beverage clients has led to the co-creation of solutions that target some of the most common logistical challenges the industry faces, including the dynamic movement of daily stock, time-specific delivery needs, early notice on delivery and shortage management, product recalls, and allergen information. Simfoni’s unique, composable approach to procurement technology allows Food & Beverage clients to have the flexibility of a custom-designed software solution, however with all the same great benefits of a pure SaaS solution—giving them an edge when it comes to speed, agility, and putting procurement insights into action. Using the latest in AI technology, Simfoni’s solution addresses common challenges around spend classification and supplier recommendations – providing valuable insights that are otherwise onerous to obtain.
“At Simfoni, we believe in building solutions that are highly intuitive to the user, while solving their most common day-to-day and logistical challenges. Our Managed Marketplace is a great example of how we have helped achieve this for our customers in the Food & Beverage industry,” commented Sreeram Venkitakrishnan, Chief Operating Officer at Simfoni. “We co-created the entire platform in collaboration with our customers, connecting logistical challenges with smart technology that solves the most pressing and complex problems for buyers and sellers across the F&B supply chain. Our platform is used by customers globally, including F&B aggregators and thousands of restaurants and buying locations on a day-to-day basis, making this a truly dynamic, lively, and business-critical solution for the industry.”
This year’s winners are investing in and implementing emerging technologies, from mobile technology and Internet of Things (IoT) to food safety management, routing and scheduling, and more. Today’s software and technology offerings provide flexibility, efficiency, safety, visibility, and more, including end-to-end management, from farm to fork, and beyond.
“The supply chain management software segment is projected to reach $18.04 billion this year, according to Statista. This includes all the emerging software solutions such as barcode systems, FinTech, inventory control, mobile technology, robotics, wireless technology and more,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These providers and their solutions are being implanted to address challenges in the cold food supply chain, whether that be port closures, driver safety or just simply automating a process.”
