As the impact of the coronavirus continues to reveal itself, it is clear that food and drink businesses are up against lots of different challenges. Reliance on digital technologies has greatly increased in recent months - with vast numbers of employees working from home bringing challenges relating to communication and staff well-being. Meanwhile, the uncertainty in the market has meant that many are considering their business analytics and forecasting software in order to better understand business performance and forecast as accurately as possible. Others are looking more closely at business efficiency due to financial pressures with a view to reducing stock levels and improving their ability to adapt to the rapidly changing environment.
