Grower Relationship Management℠ is a cloud based off-the-shelf SaaS solution that integrates with deployed SAP applications in use by consumer packaged goods companies and FoodLogiQ’s on-farm platform to manage the complexities of agricultural sourcing. GRMSM enables CPG companies to manage raw agricultural ingredient procurement and grower contract management using the same powerful SAP capabilities used to source other ingredients and raw materials.
GRM is a commercially available “plug-in” to SAP that uses standard functionality to connect to the FoodLogiQ cloud for grower collaboration and data sharing. The offering combines Clarkston Consulting’s SAP knowledge and CPG industry exper- tise with FoodLogiQ’s agricultural food safety, traceability and sustainability capabilities.
