A workshop on efficient resource management strategies for food processing industries was held in Krishnagiri recently.

Over fifty members, mostly from food processing and allied industries in and around Krishnagiri participated in the workshop. Collector T.P. Rajesh inaugurated the workshop in the presence of Lead District Bank Manager D. Krishnadoss.

V.N. Shiju, Managing Director, Cape Inde Value Chain gave a presentation on ‘Managing our business without expensive ERPs’.

During his presentation, Mr. Shiju said that small businesses have constraints on the amount that they can invest on sophisticated and expensive IT infrastructure like enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM).

Also in the current scenario, it is difficult to evaluate and implement the right IT solution for a company.

This session would educate participants on the essential analyses and reports that can be done on a day-to-day basis through simple calculations.

He also introduced the participants to some simple Excel-based tools.
