Fresh Dynamics, the Recipe to Success

Fresh Dynamics is a highly adaptable solution developed exclusively for the Fresh Produce Industry and is specifically aimed at businesses growing and packing fruit, vegetables and other perishable produce. The solution enables organisations to benefit from modern user-friendly IT and gives the business powerful tools to manage key processes and make better decisions in the wake of complex issues it faces every day.

Combined with the proven power of the world’s leading ERP solution, Microsoft Dynamics AX, Fresh Dynamics gives the business unparalleled access to reliable real-time information to help address the unique challenges of the fresh produce industry including variable quality and yield of perishable raw materials, short lead times and the need to ‘pack ahead’, working to customer specifications, manpower planning and agile production within the packhouse all within one unified state-of-the-art solution.

Harnessing Microsoft Dynamics AX

K3 has harnessed the full power and flexibility of Microsoft Dynamics AX’s to deliver a future proofed-solution in Fresh Dynamics. Integrated tightly, Fresh Dynamics adheres to Microsoft’s® guidelines and best practices and goes beyond the desktop application with touch-enabled data capture devices designed expressly for packhouse production lines. Mobile hand-held scanners that support the Quality Control (QC) functions as well as bar coded inventory and a web enabled inventory and a web-enabled growers portal.

Unlike other systems, FreshDynamics leverages standard Dynamics AX 2012 functionality and provides smooth and seamless integration with the core Microsoft technology rather than performing as a clunky add-on interface traditionally found in third-party ecosystem solutions.

Fresh Dynamics provides an extensive library of customised modules and industry-specific solutions to reduce implementation costs and time, and improve overall business operations, performance and shareholder value.
