Additional Enhancements Available

Mobile Warehouse

Record inventory movements, picking activities, and production results in real-time with bcFood’s mobile warehouse solution. Using mobile handheld units with barcode scanning capabilities, you can gain complete control of your inventory and streamline your warehouse processes.

EDI Integration

Integrate bcFood with our bcEDI solution to send and receive data according to the requirements of all major retailers, ensuring you stay compliant with your trading partners. Fully automate your transaction processes for a seamless data interchange that saves you time and eliminates data errors.

Shipping Management

Integrate your bcFood solution with a multi-carrier application and instantly process your shipments through more than 100 carriers worldwide, including FedEx, UPS, USPS, and DHL. Go beyond basic warehouse capabilities when you pick and pack individual parcels, cartons, or pallets against every shipment.

Trade Management

Track your multi-level promotions, rebates, broker commissions and payables, royalties, and bill-backs from within bcFood. Analysis and tracking tools make it easy for you to plan, implement, and report upon the overall effectiveness of your sales campaigns and promotions.


Catch Weight

Maintain your inventory records according to two units of measure, making it possible to capture the exact weights of your random weight items. Handle and process items according to one unit, but cost and price them by the other, allowing you to for example sell an item by the case, but price it by the pound.

License Plating

Manage your warehouse with license plate records that represent pallets and their contents, including item number, lot information, and weight. Record movements, receipts, picks, and shipments at the pallet level, and output your manufactured items directly onto license plate records.

Global Trade

Record international shipments in your bcFood solution. Create booking activities that maintain shipping containers and their contents, delivery schedules, completion dates, and more. Generate critical documents such as port schedules, customs documentation, and broker information from within the system.

Human Resources & Payroll

Efficiently manage your company’s human resources by organizing employee data according to experience, skills, education, and training. Keep track of job openings and related candidates, company items such as credit cards, computers, and cars, and employee absence information.
