Farmers ultimate wish is to grow for a known market with trusted partners. Azoti.com Demand Planning builds trust by enabling customers and farmers to communicate their expectations and capabilities at any time.
If farmers know what & how much customers want when, they’re willing to comply with any food safety protocol, offer 1-price for the season and grow unique products just for you!
Automatically compare customers’ usage reports vs local availability, document commitments and disseminate plans to all value chain members throughout year; thus ending the messy task of managing dozens of spreadsheets!
Transparency and efficiency go to the next level with Azoti.com Dual Sourced Just-in-Time Ordering.
Customers now see more details than ever before and product availability within a distributor's warehouse AND “in-the-field” at the farm. “In-the-field" product means it won’t be picked until the order is placed first; thus reducing labor costs for suppliers. This process also guarantees freshness and opens up truly unique product varieties grown in small quantities, which aren't normally warehoused by distributors.
Plus, any commitments made to the farmers can now be tracked as customers place orders. Azoti.com can even pre-fill order quantities based on demand plans for 3-click desktop or mobile ordering. Customers will never miss an order again!
