How Zest works
Thanks to our experience in the fresh produce sector, we know what is important to you. Zest offers many useful features to simplify your daily work. And with Zest Connect, you can connect to your chain partners' systems.
With Zest, the status of your batches is always transparent. Where exactly are your batches? What is the precise origin of a certain product? And when can you sign off a batch with the grower? Zest will give you the answers to these questions by keeping accurate records of all the information related to batches. This saves you time and gives you grip on your financial situation.
In the fresh produce sector, you need to be able to switch gears quickly. The quantity and quality of incoming orders may be different than expected, and customers sometimes change sales orders at the last minute. On hectic days, a mistake is easily made. Zest allows you to follow every order step by step, and immediately see any changes made to the latest version of an order. You can then pass on the most up-to-date information to the relevant parties, quickly and error-free.
Data on product quality plays an increasingly important role in the fresh produce sector. You want to know which certificates apply to batches, and which quality requirements they meet. In Zest, your certificate management is linked to individual pallets, so that you know exactly what you have and can search by specific attributes. What's more, Zest also keeps track of when you need to request new supplier declarations.
One of the main advantages of Zest is the seamless integration of all business processes into a single system. Accounting is also fully integrated and collaborates with the other components. This saves time and offers insight into your financial situation.
