On average, implementation of FlexiBake bakery software takes 6 weeks to 2 months, this depends entirely on the amount of resources and time allocated to the project.
FlexiBake has been designed to fit start-up businesses up to mid-sized operations. The bakery software is modular and therefore we give our customers the opportunity to start small and add on bakery modules as their business grows.
Our customers range from mom and pop retails stores up to businesses generating $50 million in annual revenues. We have customers currently running more than 20 simultaneous users working in the bakery system and offer many options including costing, nutritional, live inventory, production, and much more.
A major difference is that we concentrate solely on the Food Manufacturing Industry. Every feature in FlexiBake has been added based on feedback from our users, all of whom are bakeries or other food and beverage manufacturers. Although the company was incorporated in 1995, FlexiBake is a relatively young product having first been released in 2002. We do not have to deal with legions of legacy DOS and early Windows users or programming code, this means that the software is modern and that we are able to respond quickly to user requests for added functionality etc. FlexiBake does not force you to work with an unfamiliar accounting application as we support data import to virtually all commercial accounting software. We are the developers of the bakery software and own all the rights to it. We also do not farm out our support function to overseas operators. We are so confident that our ERP bakery software is easy to install, learn and use that we offer an unconditional 30 day free trial of the software from our website to anyone who wants to evaluate it.
