The global COVID-19 pandemic, with its disruptive effects on manufacturers’ supply chains, has been a wake-up call for many businesses to examine their operations through a different lens.
With a strong understanding of the challenges faced by process manufacturers and distributors, Deacom has been developed as an ERP solution specific for the needs of customers within these industries. Going beyond the basic functionality offered within traditional ERP solutions, Deacom ERP provides a comprehensive range of business management capabilities within one system and one user experience.
Resiliency strategies for the supply chain, operational excellence, quality and safety, and consistently meeting regulatory requirements of the Dairy Industry are driving the need for processors to leverage an enterprise software system that is tailored to their market. Deacom ERP provides a flexible solution with industry-specific functionality that can be easily configured to the unique requirements of dairy processors.
TruFood Manufacturing has been successfully running on Deacom ERP for years, so when they acquired Simply Natural, they knew that using Deacom ERP for both companies would create more efficiencies and drive growth. With the foundation and SOPs already in place, along with the industry expertise of the Deacom implementation team, Simply Natural was able to get up and running in just four months.
Nature's One needed a complete ERP solution that eliminated the long paper trail and lack of visibility that its legacy system created. And with a pledge for purity in contents, quality, sourcing and testing, the company wanted a solution that could keep up with its mission and purpose, as well as regulatory requirements, without being bogged down by bolt-on customizations. These were not easy requirements to fulfill, but Nature’s One found everything it needed and more in Deacom ERP.
Bergin Fruit and Nut Company enlisted in Deacom in 2015 to help them scale and better prepare for the future. They didn’t realize it at the time, but their decision to use Deacom ERP was what helped them navigate the unpredictability of COVID-19. When most industries were turned upside down, Bergin was able to successfully pivot their business to stay profitable without skipping a beat.
For many food manufacturers, products that naturally vary in weight (like meat, cheese, or seafood) are sold by the unit but priced by the pound. During production, these items, or catch weight items, are weighed, recorded, and labeled either manually or using a software system. The labels include unique identifiers that includes important information like lot number, catch weight, and serial number. This serialization data can take lot tracking and inventory visibility to a higher level. When used with Deacom’s built-in warehouse management system, users can track lots forward and backwards throughout the supply chain while also gaining a detailed understanding of their inventory in real time.
Lot control has always played a significant role in manufacturing to reduce risks and stay competitive. Every manufacturer cares about quality control and brand reputation. Being able to track and trace every batch and every item back to a specific lot or even a production unit is the only way to close the loop on quality control and respond to downstream problems in a timely fashion. For this reason, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers see traceability and serialization as an absolute requirement to gain greater control over product, process quality, and to respond to their customer demands.
TEC Certification Reports provide detailed analysis of leading software solutions that have successfully completed TEC's Certificate Program. This certification ensures that Deacom has demonstrated Deacom ERP's support for specific real-world business processes chosen by TEC analysts, and that TEC have anlaytically and comparatively reviwed research questionnaire data about Deacom ERP against known benchmarks.
Companies around the world rely on Deacom to host and manage their Deacom ERP environment using Microsoft Azure. With Deacom’s Managed Cloud Services (MCS), they are able to leverage the flexibility and scalability needs of their business while removing the hassle of managing hardware and IT resources.
Copps Industries came to Deacom in 2008 when their legacy ERP system was failing to keep pace with the company’s growth. Their recent upgrade to Deacom’s Managed Cloud Services has allowed the company to continue to scale. Copps is now more efficient working remotely on multiple devices, they have expanded the use of the system to the sales organization using CRM, and have saved 20% annually on outside IT support.
It only takes one mistake – one flaw, contaminant or error – to diminish the usefulness of a product or lose customers. In today’s marketplace, there are many vendors and distributors capable of offering a competitive product. There is also a historic decline in customer loyalty, which raises the stake for businesses dependent on every customer. The expenses incurred in trying to rectify that one mistake and regain the ground that has been lost is known as the “cost of being wrong.” This white paper is focused on complex processes and how businesses that rely on them can avoid critical errors, including the late detection of quality issues. With Hyper-Tight Process Control™ as part of your ERP, you can ensure constant quality in your production process, at scale.
Resilience strategies for supply chain, operations excellence, quality and safety, and evolving regulatory requirements of the Nutraceutical industry are driving the need for manufacturers to leverage an enterprise resource planning system that is tailored to their market. Deacom ERP is the only solution for Nutraceutical manufacturers that provides efficient and centralized data processing with Hyper-Tight Process Control™.
The Deacom approach to APIs will vary greatly from that of other enterprise systems. While other ERP vendors require bolt-on integrations with third party systems, Deacom includes these capabilities out of the box in one system, using a single database. As a result of this design, our integration scope is much smaller than other vendors, and limited to communicating with systems that are firmly outside of our ‘ERP Fence’.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers can increase their value by significantly improving business processes with Deacom ERP. Some benefits that businesses in this industry will experience include: strict lot control with track and trace, Hyper-Tight Process Control™, integrated quality control, automated document generation, FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, and serialization.
With extensive knowledge and experience in the Food and Beverage industry, Deacom is able to help companies navigate the dynamic nature, complexity, and versatility of the industry. The comprehensive ERP solution helps companies improve their management of inventory, recalls, regulations, forecasts, lot control, quality control, and so much more.
The constantly changing demands and evolving regulatory requirements of the chemical industry are driving the need for manufacturers to leverage an enterprise software system that is tailored to their market.

Exercising the Power of ONE, customers can leverage the ERP provider’s ONE System, ONE User Experience, ONE Predictable Price, and ONE Team to help increase their competitive edge and reduce their “cost of being wrong.”
Deacom takes a unique approach to software development by writing all functionality into the base system and using some of the most modern technology available on the market. With options to host the solution on-premise or on-demand, businesses are able to deploy the ERP based on what fits their needs best.
For Food & Beverage Manufacturers, operating in today’s tough business environment is one more challenge in a long list that already includes difficult-to-manage processes, volatile raw materials prices, perishable ingredients and products, a complex supply chain, and strict (and constantly changing) regulatory requirements.
In the spring of 2017, Deacom began implementation if its ERP system for Teasdale Foods, a leading manufacturer and provider of Hispanic food products, headquartered Atwater, California. The company has seen tremendous growth over the past few years both organically and through acquisitions, and is currently operating with six different facilities. Just as the teams were wrapping up the last of the facility implementations, we sat down with CEO, Chris Kiser, to talk about their business, the process leading up to choosing Deacom, and his take on the overall implementation process.
AMCO Proteins, a specialty proteins manufacturer, was using technology to run their business much like other manufacturing companies in the United States: by customizing various types of software to deliver specific capabilities. While the company was able to ‘get by’ for a few years, gaps in their process were becoming more prominent as the complexity of the business developed.
California Custom Fruits & Flavors evaluated four different software systems that met the basic functional needs of their business. They chose Deacom, largely because of the platform’s intuitiveness and development philosophy, which is rooted in simplicity and evolution.
Silver Spring Foods evaluated their needs and requirements in an ERP system in order to scale the business. The company determined that they were looking for a system that: tied together customer service, accounting, manufacturing, purchasing, and shipping within a single tool; had strong data mining and reporting functionality; provided strong sales reporting; was configurable without customization; had strong sustainable technical support capabilities; and would not exceed ERP budget allocations.
Over the past ten years, D.G. Yuengling & Son has experienced incredible growth as the brand continues to expand to the West Coast. In 2010, the brewing empire realized they were just “getting by” with two disparate, outdated ERP systems to manage operations in their Pennsylvania and Florida locations. It became clear that it would not be possible to successfully expand their distribution without uprooting that foundation.
Synalloy Corporation selected Deacom ERP in August 2008 and went live on the software just seven months later. Since then, the company has successfully migrated all its business units onto the platform and continues to do so with each new acquisition.
