Kuessnacht, SWITZERLAND, 7 December 2020 – SpecPage, the global leader in data management process solutions for the food and beverage (F&B) industry, has joined forces with T-Systems Iberia, the digital services subsidiary of the Deutsche Telekom group. The goal of this partnership is to drive in the Spanish market the digital transformation of the F&B product lifecycle with a ready-to-use, rapid deployment solution created by SpecPage — on premise, and in the cloud.
In the European Union, the food industry is worth more than 1,192 billion Euros [JL1], in Spain, where T-Systems Iberia primarily operates, the industry is worth 30,342M Euros and represents 2.6% of the national GDP. Given the dynamic and rapidly evolving nature of the industry, F&B manufacturing companies require innovative solutions to address product lifecycle and data management. A PLM system specifically designed for this sector can capture consumer preferences, optimize products according to these tastes, and reduce production costs all while meeting crucial food regulatory requirements.
F&B manufacturers can expect to gain competitive advantages and increased profits while optimizing the product development process, including:
- Greater quality control of the product from raw material to finished product, with the ability to oversee the entire development process in real-time
- Online data management and review, thus minimizing costs and errors while improving productivity and R&D, and manufacturing activities
- Increased visibility by being able to share product information remotely
- Easy adaptation to the different compliance regulations around the world
- The flexibility to support regulatory changes and access to new markets
Current trends and forecasts anticipate changes that prioritize product transparency in packaging and ingredients, as well as shifting consumer tastes and needs. Market researchers have predicted that these trends will require more change in the next five years than the F&B industry has experienced in the last 50 years. As a result, digital transformations for product management are necessary for food and beverage manufacturers to stay ahead of the curve, now more than ever.
